Sandst1 Received his Nokia N950 thanks to the N950 Developer Device Program! Below is the start of his journey with FunkeySynth and MeeGo Harmattan:
Today started tweaking the FunkeySynth UI from the tablet environment into smaller devices (N9/N950). Was expecting some glitches, as the synthesizer code is not optimized and the amount of resources available are naturally smaller than in a tablet. However, I was in for a nice surprise: it’s working smooothly. : )
There’s a lot to be done, the UI has to be redesigned from a 10-inch screen to 4 inces. Started with a simple cleaning of the main screen to contain only the keyboard and the most important buttons, so the focus would be on playing and editing basic characteristics of the sound. The more complex sound synthesis configuration will go to a separate screen, the sliders seen in the tablets have to be converted to rotatable knobs to save space etc. But thanks to QML, there’s a good start already.
You can download test .debs for PortAudio and FunkeySynth from here.
Here’s a small preview on what will be coming:
