Ubuntu Studio really has some perfect features as it comes to performing live. It has great synths, and superb effects among others. And of course it has a sequencer program, but personally I prefer sequencer64. Sequencer64 is the ‘beast mode’ of a program called seq24, it has many new features while the heart of seq24 stayed intact. This article helps you install sequencer64 on your Ubuntu Studio.
Now open a Terminal window and enter the following commands:
$ sudo apt install git
$ cd Downloads
$ git clone https://github.com/ahlstromcj/sequencer64.git
$ sudo apt-get install libasound2-dev libatkmm-1.6-dev libgtkmm-2.4-dev libglibmm-2.4-dev libgtk2.0-dev libsigc++-2.0-dev libjack-jackd2-dev liblash-compat-dev libpng-dev libportmidi-dev
$ cd sequencer64
$ autoreconf –install
$ ./configure –enable-release –enable-rtmidi
$ sudo make install
To enable sequencer64 to hookup on Jack right away, you might want to edit the opening icon to open sequencer64 with the folowing command ‘seq64 –jack-midi’. You can do this by right clicking the sequencer64 icon in your menu and select ‘edit application’. Now change ‘seq64’ in ‘seq64 –jack-midi’
You can now start sequencer64 from your menu and hook it up to Qjack, have fun!
