hello everybody, i just started using rakarrack and i must say i am most impressed.
the current state of the software (0.5.8) i'm seeing is well above average and, i must confess, expectations.
i'm in the process of building a foot pedal out of a USB keyboard wich i will gut and rewire to a few switches, the project was going to be mostly for ableton live and/or guitar rig 4 (max msp/puredata where options too)…
however, since trying Rakarrack (and seeing that keys 1-10 are already mapped to keyboard keys) i decided to add a few buttons (from the planned 8 in two four-button-rows) to maybe 12 buttons
My main concern is: is there an easy way of mapping the previous/next preset button to the keyboard?
hopefully there is, or else i hope it's easy to implement (compared to some of the stuff you guys have already done!!!)
many thanks for a wonderful piece of software.
i hope i could contribute some code sometime
I was think that what you request is really interesting …. then I added the "+" "-" keys and the Numeric KeyPad ones to handle the preset counter … :-)
You can get our git version … wich has more effects and some more features than 0.5.8 :-)
thanks so much, i just installed 0.6.0 from the git repository as per instructions and everything works great!!
i will be sure to post the pictures of the pedalboard when its done
this program is just so awesome
if you ever need some super-fast fortran code, just let me know :D
First, congratulations for your work and thank you for your decision to share it.
I'm a guitarist and my intention is to do some lives with an acoustic guitar and both Rakarrak and SooperLooper.
In order to do this, I'm using some USB pedal keys, and I need to set the same pedals to change track in SooperLooper, and to change preset in Rakarrack.
The problem is that the "+" and "-" keys are the only keys that SooperLooper can't learn, so I was wondering if there's a way to change shortcuts in Rakarrack, since at the moment there's not an easy way to make it "learn" shortcuts by GUI.
I'm not used with programming at all, anyway I compiled Rakarrack from git and tried to edit «rakarrack.fl» with Fluid (as suggested here, maybe for a similar problem https://ubuntuforums.org/archive/index.php/t-1639367.html ).
I searched the whole file for the "+" and "-" shortcuts in order to edit it, but I found nothing.
Am I proceeding in the right way? How do I set them, i.e., to "8" and "9" keys?
Thank you in advance.
