Hi. I just want to share this little tip for use with a jack instance slave of the mod running on a computer.
I think the main use of this is using signal in this order:
mod inputs -> mod pedalboard -> external computer -> mod outputs
Personnaly I use computer with a amp simulator to adjust my pedalboards without having to transport my AC30 in a little room where I can’t really use it at normal volume.
It’s works quite fine but it can be easily improved.
The slave ports in mod-ui are visible sometimes (and sometimes no, i don’t know why).
And I had always to unplug all effects connected to out 1, connect them to out 3, and think to re-plug them to out 1 or have a big surprise on stage.
looking in present jack ports in the mod duo, i saw that all plugins connected to outputs are in fact connected to mod-monitor ports, so it gaves it easy to make a good script.
The script connect mod-monitor outs to slave input ports, and slave output ports to mod playback ports. This way, we have nothing to connect/disconnect and no unneeded connections displayed in mod-ui. At mod duo restart, the mod-monitors ports will be connected to mod playback, you don’t have to care.
The only issue I saw is with tuner. When I leave tuner, mod-monitor is reconnected to playback and i ear together sound from mod and sound from computer. I’ve got to go back on tuner the ear only sound from computer.
Copy this script into the mod duo via ssh in /root:
scp mod-slave_connect firstname.lastname@example.org:/root
you can run it after starting jack on your computer
ssh email@example.com /root/mod-slave_connect
PS: I just saw that this kind of little script already exists here:
