Cool Problem to get SFZero work in Xubuntu

Hi,

For now I'm testing Xubuntu and so far I like it alot. In other distros I tried I have no problem to use SFZero. I add it to my .vst folder and it doesnt show up. I move it to /usr/lib/vst same thing it doesnt show up.

In Reaper under VST option I do a new scan/clear cache and I see SFZero.so flashing by, but still not found i FX browser.

I tried both variants by oxmidi - diskstreaming and the "other" one.

https://github.com/osxmidi/SFZero-X/releases/tag/0.5

What am I missing?

Someone recently mentioned in this forum that Carla can act as a soundfont or SFZ player among other things, so I downloaded it and extracted only the VST .so file into my .vst folder. REAPER instantly added it on the next boot and sure enough, it loads all my soundfonts and SFZ files just fine. I haven't used it in a project yet, but I've jammed around using it a few times.

OK I downloaded the non streaming version, extracted only the .so file, put it into my .vst folder and REAPER does not see it. It behaves the exact same way as if this were an LV2 plugin and not a VST plugin.

Seems like the Debian version doesn't work on Ubuntu.

Check the SFZero-X page for a Ubuntu update.

The trouble with sfz is that quite a few sfz files are not written very well and can have non compliant values which throw SFZero-X into a spin but with some basic editing of the sfz file(s) it can be ok and also that sforzando has become the standard and it has a lot of extensions so sfz files made for sforzando will probably not work very well with SFZero-X.

But SFZero-X has a lot of stuff added to the basic SFZero, things like

Added Round Robin seq_length and seq_position opcodes and Random hirand and lorand and Modwheel gain_ccx loccx hiccx and Channel selection lochan hichan opcodes and Sample Trigger on_loccx on_hiccx opcodes and Crossfade xfin_lo xfin_hi xfout_lo xfout_hi key and MIDI CC opcodes and Filter cutoff resonance (fil_type lpf_1p hpf_1p lpf_2p hpf_2p bpf_2p brf_2p) opcodes.

seq_length seq_position hirand and lorand, useful for randomizing and varying orchestral and drum samples etc.

gain_ccx, useful for orchestral and drum etc crescendos and diminuendos using MIDI CC.

loccx hiccx, useful for sample selection using MIDI CC.

lochan hichan useful for selecting and isolating MIDI channels.

xfin_lo xfin_hi xfout_lo xfout_hi useful for crossfading.

Filter opcodes useful for lowpass highpass bandpass bandreject filters.

Way cool!!! Working great here with SF2 and SFX. Is there a way to set the default folder it opens when browsing for a file to load? If not no big deal. Thanks for making this available, because I'm sure it consumes less CPU than any other method of playing SF2/SFZ files I had available before, and I like efficiency!

I know what you mean, the file selector needs more things added to it so that it remembers folders.

I think that is due to JUCE and some Reaper gtk thing, I'm not sure.

I used to have that problem on MXLinux but now I don't, so maybe something got updated on my system and now it's ok.

I don't know if the Ubuntu version is any better.

On the SFZero-X page it links to how SFZero-X can be run inside Linux-LinVst
(nothing to do with Windows or Wine btw) to try to get around possible gtk etc errors.

The binaries are in the Releases folder.

So, copy lin-vst-server to /usr/bin and then place linvst*.so in the folder that SFZero.so is in and then rename linvst*.so to SFZero*.so (the asterisks need to be there btw).

Then choose SFZero with an asterisk in the name inside Reaper (and not the usual SFZero with no asterisk in the name).

Thank you osxmidi for your comment, the weird thing is they did play along for couple of sessions and then stopped.
Think I need to setup Fruit and try building BalanceSPTeufelsberg this summer..
