Recently the computer (Linux) I was running died an horrible death (soldered-in RAM corruption), and I have thus upgraded from a very old Stereo Tool to 9.50. Using with Rivendell automation. Both Stereo Tool and Jackd are started by Rivendell. I have 2 questions. The Stereo Tool GUI does not show when started by Rivendell. Is there any way to force it to display?

Secondly, the new version does not output to the OUT L&R but rather to FM L&R. This is different than the previous version I was using. Thus, the autoconnect in Jackd connects to a silent output. Any way to correct this? I believe I have the sound card interface set properly, there is just no audio on OUT; only on FM.

I have not been able to figure out a way to see the ST GUI if RD starts it. I ended up having RD start Jack but I made a startup script that I call as the RD user. I also nohup each process in case of a lost connection, plus it also redirects the output to the nohup.out files:
Code:
#!/bin/bash
# onair.sh

printf "Restarting Rivendell...\n"
sudo systemctl restart rivendell
sleep 2
printf "Done!\n\n"

printf "Starting rdairplay...\n"
cd /home/rd/logs/rdairplay
rm -f nohup.out
sleep 1
nohup rdairplay &
sleep 1
printf "Done!\n\n"

sleep 1

printf "Starting qjackctl...\n"
cd /home/rd/logs/qjackctl
rm -f nohup.out
sleep 1
nohup qjackctl &
sleep 1
printf "Done!\n\n"

sleep 1

printf "Starting Stereo Tool...\n"
cd /home/rd/logs/stereo_tool
rm -f nohup.out
sleep 1
nohup stereo_tool &
sleep 1
printf "Done!\n\n"

sleep 1

#printf "Starting BUTT...\n"
#cd /home/rd/logs/butt
#rm -f nohup.out
#sleep 1
#nohup butt &
#sleep 1
#printf "Done!\n\n"

#printf "Starting Darkice...\n"
#cd /home/rd/logs/darkice
#rm -f nohup.out
#sleep 1
#nohup darkice &
#sleep 1
#printf "Done!\n\n"

printf "Starting GlassGUI...\n"
cd /home/rd/logs/glassgui
rm -f nohup.out
sleep 1
nohup glassgui --autostart &
sleep 1
printf "Done!\n\n"

sleep 1

onair2.sh
Then I use aj-snapshot to remove all Jack connections and then set them up with the actual names using jack_connect:
Code:
#!/bin/bash
# onair2.sh

# Disconnect all Jack connections
printf "Disconnecting all Jack connections...\n"
aj-snapshot -jx
printf "Done!\n\n"

sleep 1

# Connect Rivendell on-air outputs to Stereo Tool inputs
printf "Connecting Rivendell on-air outputs to Stereo Tool inputs...\n"
jack_connect rivendell_0:playout_0L stereo_tool:in_l
sleep 1
jack_connect rivendell_0:playout_0R stereo_tool:in_r
sleep 1
printf "Done!\n\n"

# Connect Stereo Tool outputs to glasscoder inputs
printf "Connecting Stereo Tool main outputs to GlassCoder inputs...\n"
jack_connect stereo_tool:fm_l glasscoder:input_1
sleep 1
jack_connect stereo_tool:fm_r glasscoder:input_2
sleep 1
printf "Done!\n\n"

# Connect Stereo Tool monitor output to System
printf "Connecting Stereo Tool monitor outputs to System...\n"
jack_connect stereo_tool:mon_l system:playback_1
sleep 1
jack_connect stereo_tool:mon_r system:playback_2
sleep 1
printf "Done!\n\n"

sleep 1

printf "All done!\n"
Hope this helps!

Thanks for the reply. Interesting insight that gives something to work with.

Aside from wanting control of ST, whatever the default processing of that blind ST instance on installation, it has wonderful bass settings, and I would really like to see them, because I cannot find a preset that might be it, nor can I duplicate it. The bass in 99% of songs is absolutely dead consistent. It is not beeping or talking, so I presume it is not using settings that require a license--not that that is a problem, it is just a clue as to what is used to get such consistency.

Again, thanks for posting the script.

I agree, the GUI is fun to watch while your station is running and also great for making adjustments.

How did you setup Rivendell with stereotool?
