'RM50 Manager' is a voice and rhythm kit editor for the Yamaha RM50 rhythm sound module. It runs on Linux and Windows and probably also OS X (untested). For more info about the Yamaha RM50 see: http://www.linuxtech.net/musicgear/synth_yamaha_rm50.html Linux instructions ================== Prerequisites: - Perl Perl should be installed by default on most distros, otherwise practically every distro has it in it's software repository - Perl-Tk Perl-Tk is available in the software repositories of all major distros, the package is called either 'perl-tk' or 'perl-Tk' (with a capital 'T') - MIDI::ALSA a Perl library module that provides MIDI functionality on Linux, you will have to install this from the source tarball as AFAIK no distro includes this yet. Get it from here: http://search.cpan.org/dist/MIDI-ALSA/ALSA.pm or install it via CPAN: cpan MIDI::ALSA - Config::Simple another Perl library module required by rm50_manager. Install it from the software repository of your distro or via CPAN: cpan Config::Simple Windows instructions ==================== Prerequisites: - Perl there are a few version of Perl for Windows, the current Activestate version does not provide Perl-Tk so can't be used. I have successfully used Strawberry Perl 22.214.171.124 32 bit on Windows XP SP3. Get Strawberry Perl from here: http://strawberryperl.com/ - Perl-Tk After installing Strawberry Perl, you need to install Perl-Tk, this can be done from CPAN. Open a Windows command prompt and type the following (note the capital 'T'): cpan Tk You need to be connected to the internet to do this as this will contact the Strawberry Perl CPAN repository and download and install Perl-Tk automatically all in one go. - Win32API-MIDI ( http://search.cpan.org/dist/Win32API-MIDI/MIDI.pm ) Just like the Perl-Tk module, the Win32API-MIDI module needs to be installed from CPAN over the internet. Again, type the following into an open Windows command prompt: cpan Win32API::MIDI - Config::Simple another Perl library module required by rm50_manager. Install it from CPAN by typing the following into an open Windows command prompt: cpan Config::Simple OS X ==== The RM50 Manager should run on OS X too (without MIDI support), as long as you have Perl, Perl-Tk and the Config::Simple module installed. I don't have access to any OS X machine so can't test this myself.
