Installation

The installation procedure follows the standard for source distributions. In the extracted source directory, just do:


./configure [--prefix=prefix]
make


and optionally as root:


make install


This procedure will end installing the following:

Just launch prefix/bin/padthv1_jack and you're off (hopefully). Note that the default installation path prefix is /usr/local.

Configuration

padthv1 holds its settings and configuration state per user, in a file located as $HOME/.config/rncbc.org/padthv1.conf. Normally, there's no need to edit this file, as it is recreated and rewritten everytime padthv1 is run.

Bugs

Plenty still, however padthv1 may be considered in beta phase already ;)
