I was finally able to install and work Qtractor. I watched the tutorials by Phil (if you're reading here, nice tunes, Yas) and checked the manual, even not extensively.
I have a question. I was trying to follow the part of the manual where it's written about the bach_inventions MIDI track by simonetto.
I loaded the track in Qtractor, chose Calf fluidsynth to try playing the track, but I cannot set up any bank.
If I click on the button there's no banks available.
Another question. Before to install Qtractor, I downloaded and installed Jackd2, I'm on Linux Ubuntu 16.04LTS and have a low latency kernel installed.
I had Qjackctl when using Ardour but I removed it.
I notice that when I start Qtractor, jack starts as well. The problem is when I quit Qtractor the system slowed down and the fan is running non stop.
I checked and I saw jackdbus continues even after the daw it's been closed. Is there a way for which when one quits Qtractor, jackdbus stops?
I'm coming from Ardour, is a great daw but doesn't feature MIDI. I record audio as first thing but I cannot think somebody in the world doesn't use at least one single MIDI track to record a keyboard, or a orchestra or whatever it is. So it's useless for me, or half-useless. Or half-useful, depends on where's the sighting point.
