Automating session setup for live performance
Hi. I currently use Rosegarden to playback some sequences in live performances. At the moment, I'm using an Audigy 2 ZS card as a synth module, with some soundfonts, and just load the gm soundfont bank I use using Rosegarden with asfxload. But I'm planning to buy a new laptop, and have noticed that most newer laptops have dropped the PCMCIA port in favor of the ExpressCard, so I'll not be able to continue using my Audigy card, I believe. And the newer X-Fi modules aren't well supported in Linux yet (so I have read). That makes me have to buy another card, and move to QSynth to be able to use my soundfonts. So the question: Is there a way that I can make an automated setup (like a script or something) for my sequences? I'd like to be able to open Rosegarden and Qsynth with the correct sounds selected and everything in the fewer clicks possible (maybe something like the scripts that Musix has for the demos, on which you just click on the song name in the menu and everything opens with all setup done and ready to play) Thanks ahead for any suggestions.
