Hi to all and bug found in PadthV1

Hi to everyone, (this is my first post here) :)

First off, thanks for all the great apps, rncbc! They are really good!!

I installed the git version of PadthV1 and (almost) all seems to be working fine. However, two problems:

(I wasn't able to log in to Sourceforge to post the bugs there, so apologies if this is not the right place.)

- twice the synth locked up while playing notes and changing the values of the harmonics levels. (all works fine if I don't play notes while changing the harmonic levels)

- I got this message in the terminal once, and had to restart the synth:

SuspendRefNum error
JackClient::Execute error name = padthv1
Server is not running

However, QJackCtl was indeed still running and usable with other instruments.

Hth!

hi Brian,

you're welcome of course.

indeed, changing the harmonics in padthv1 while notes are still playing is not a safe operation: please avoid doing that often if you can.

also, changing any of the parameters that cause a complete wavetable regeneration (eg. Sample, Width, Scale, Nh, etc. but not Detune nor Glide) are all on the same recommendation: don't tweak them nor automate them while notes are playing still.

i'll try to mitigate this in this next development cycle and let's hope for the better :)

meanwhile, feel free--and hopefully inspired--to explore and harness (though carefully:)) to make and churn out as many .padthv1 presets you can... i'm sure you'll have some ready in no time and share to the world on linuxsynths.com of course ;)

cheers && thanks

Thanks for the tips! :) Yes, I'll be careful to not play notes when changing waveform parameters.

Presets (and dedicated webpage) are on their way..! (maybe already after this weekend...)

btw. while on thy linuxsynths.com: all vee-one's lousy names have one and only vowel and all have names which are not longer than eight (8) characters in length
hope you solve the riddle (hint hint: samplv1:).

Sorry bout the spellling error for Samplv1! I'll make the changes on the website before the end of the day. :)

I'm testing out Padthv1 today a bit more. When I save a preset, the synth freezes and I have to restart. In the terminal I get this error:

SuspendRefNum error
JackClient::Execute error name = padthv1

Fortunately, the preset does get saved correctly and when I restart it is available for use.

Also, everytime I start Padthv1, I have to use Alt+F7 to move the GUI window because the title bar is always out of view at the top of the screen. (my resolution is 1280x1024)

EDIT: a few more details: in QJackCtl I get this when I am forced to close the GUI:
Sun Sep 3 11:50:38 2017: ERROR: Failed to find port 'padthv1:in_1' to destroy
Sun Sep 3 11:50:38 2017: ERROR: Failed to find port 'padthv1:in_2' to destroy

Sun Sep 3 11:50:38 2017: Client 'padthv1' with PID 10437 is out

The terminal reads also: Server is not running. (but Jack is indeed running)

hth!

PS. Is there any way to modulation between the two GEN samples?

I guess you're trying the standalone JACK client form... may I ask what binary you're running? is it the AppImage one? did you build from source on your own? the AppImage is quite new and experimental so YMMV ;)

re. Is there any way to modulation between the two GEN samples?
yes, both "Balance" and "Ring Mod" maybe be modulated by the LFO.

I'm using the Git version. (Is this the AppImage?)

Edit: Samplv1 page is now corrected. Thanks for giving me the heads up! :)

the AppImage is the one posted on the v0.8.4 release announcement here.

so you built from git source right? does it always freeze when you save a preset? say, when it opens a "file save" requester dialog?
seeya

No, if I modify a preset and go to another, the dialog to save before leaving doesn't cause it to freeze.

Hi rncbc,
here's a few presets from the past few days. Some are very similar because I was doing some comparisons, so... see what you like, if any. More coming!

sounds like you're having some fun, besides the glitches/bugs here ;)
anyway i still can't reproduce any of then; although the abrupt all-notes-off when changing any of the generators parameters, I don't get any lockups or crashes whatsoever, yet.
cheers && thanks for sharing.
ps. now eagerly waiting for some demos :P
