I was attracted to Elementary OS for the features. Running Juno on a laptop. I'm trying to get a midi controller to playback sound. It is a M-Audio Radium 49 and connects via USB. The lsusb program finds the controller when it is pulled in as 'Midiman M-Audio Keyboard loader'.
I cannot find the correct combination of software, synths, patches and sound fonts to get it to make any sound.
I do have a windows machine and plug it in and make sounds with MuseScore. The same setup on Elementary OS doesn't produce any sounds.
As a side note, I did get a USB audio interface running with Ardour without anything other than adding my user to the audio group.
It would be great to have a few Audio tutorials specific to recording and Digital Audio Workstation setups.
