[Csnd] Still need help with midi on windows

Tobiah
I uninstalled Csound, and did a fresh install
with the installer here:

     http://csound.github.io/download.html

Using the full installer which downloaded as

     Setup_Csound6_x64_6.09.1.exe

It automatically set this environment variable:

     OPCODE6DIR64=C:\Program Files\Csound6_x64\plugins64\

I look there and see a big list of .dll files.  pmidi.dll
is not among them however.

Then I go to run csound with the -Q flag:

$ csound -Q100 any.orc any.sco
virtual_keyboard real time MIDI plugin for Csound
0dBFS level = 32768.0
--Csound version 6.09.1 (double samples) Jul 10 2017

I expect to see a list of midi ports for portmidi, but it says
that it's an unknown module.

I'm on Windows 10 Home.


Thanks for any help!

Looks like something is not right. You could try using winme drivers instead, but I'm not sure why the portaudio ones are not picked up.

Hey does anyone at least have the pmidi.dll in
their opcode directory?  Maybe it would work if
I put a copy in mine.

Thanks,

So I just installed version 6.02 from a previous installer.
That time I got *only* pmidi.dll in my opcodedir!

Still, it worked, but I had way less opcodes, says -z.

Next I tried 6.04.  Same thing.

Then I saw, Setup_Csound6_x64_6.07.0rc6.exe.  That one
gave me all of the .dll's in the plugin dir, plus pmidi.dll!

Yay, I'm working again.  Something has been whack with those
windows installers though. 6.06 is the latest release, and it's
broken.

Thanks,


Tobiah

The PortMidi DLL is not currently included the latest Windows
installers. I can't remember why exactly. Some time ago we switched to
using packages for third party dependencies and there isn't a package
for PortMidi, so that might be it.

We now are in the middle of moving the build for the Windows installer
from mingw64 to Microsoft Visual Studio. That build does have a
package for PortMidi. But this is not yet finished.

Regards,
Mike

pmidi.dll is in my plugins64 folder. No problems here. (Windows 10)

I do have a less current version of Csound however (6.08) from Mike's installer.

Thanks for weighing in.  It's been frustrating to come back
to csound and find this staple functionality missing.  I was
a little surprised that there wasn't more buzz about this, but
then I remembered that most people probably don't install the
latest version very often.  I just got caught in the limbo.


Thanks,

Tobiah
