A project log for eXaDrums

Electronic drums for Linux

If you've read the previous log, you know that I successfully build Raspbian and Debian packages for eXaDrums and libeXaDrums. They are both available on Github by the way, in the Release section.

Because they are proper signed packages, if you wish to try them out, you'll have to add the gpg key first:

wget -O - | apt-key add - 

Then, you just have to add the following line to your /etc/apt/sources.list:

deb ./

And that's it, run sudo apt update, and then you can install eXadrums as if it was part of your distribution, for instance: sudo apt install exadrums.

After you've installed eXaDrums, you'll notice two shortcuts in your applications menu. One of them starts eXaDrums as root. This is mainly for the Raspberry Pi, if you use a SPI ADC (MCP3008 or MCP3208 for example).

Note that you probably want to change the soundcard and sensor type, as the default values might not be adapted to your configuration.
