Thanks for your input, guys. Can't believe I didn't think of just
plugging one physically into the other! But that's true, what a path.
I might as well give Hydrogen a try--bpm are bpm, and I hadn't thought
of that. I was playing with it earlier and thinking what a shame, it's
looks really cool but I have an actual drum kit in the other room and
might as well learn to play what I want to hear. Now I have an excuse.
I'd like to give kmetronome a whirl though; I got my latency down to
21.3 w/512 frames & 2 periods, so I reckon it'll run--but so far the
sole way I'm able to get any MIDI sound is opening a file in the
timidity-interfaces-extra gui app I found in Synaptic, so we'll see . .
. er, hear, if I hear anything (Timidity is there & connected in Jack &
patchage; I just can't hear it).
Does anybody have a binary of kmetronome? I downloaded it, but I'm an
all-thumbs n00b at building stuff in Linux and I'm getting some cmake
errors I don't know what to do with. :P But heck, again, I bet I can
run Hydrogen & a few other apps just fine all at once--I've got RAM & am
not putting a lot of other demands on the system. (If I knew what's
good for me, since I'd like to adapt my meager programming skills to
Linux, I'd just buckle down & figure out cmake here.)
