    Managing alsa and jack connection using console

    Hi!
    I am trying to make a script that will manage launching jackd, fluidsynth and connect them properly so I can play my midi keyboard.

    Usually I do this:

    In first terminal:
    jackd -d alsa

    In second terminal:
    fluidsynth -l [sf2_name]

    Then I launch qjackctl and connect the keyboard's output to the fluidsynth's input, then I connect fluidsynth's left and right outputs to system's playback_1 and playback_2. This is the step I would like to automate. I am sure that there should be a way to make those connections using console utilities.

    Thank you.

    Hello root.talis,

    This tutorial might be helpful: http://digitaldub.wordpress.com/2009...ion-scripting/

    It also mentions LASH and LADI which could be of use for your purpose also.

    Best,

    Jeremy

    Thank you for your reply, AutoStatic.

    The article was very helpful and solved the whole problem. It also explains certain things that a newbie needs to know to get started with shell scripts. Thank you very much!
