Hello Joseph, hello folks,
first of all Joseph thank you for your work, I love the combination of my raspi, a powerbank and a small midi keyboard. Great!
I want to report a strange effect that I was hoping to get rid of after the release of the raspiv3 img, but it is still there:
on both the manual install (jessie raspbian with samplerbox from github) and the new Raspi3 image versions, samplerbox is not working correctly if started the first time after booting or rebooting. Notes are playing for a very long time (multiple seconds) on the manual install version, and they play forever on the new V3 image version. After stopping and restarting samplerbox.py, everything works fine from then on until the next reboot.
One observation: when connecting the midi keyboard after the system startup, it works fine, the problem only shows up when the keyboard is connected upon startup. However, the latter is the preferred setup since I prefer to have everything in place and then boot up.
Since I only have one MIDI keyboard, I can not test with different devices. As a workaround I changed the startup script so that it starts up samplerbox, then waits for 10 seconds, kills it, and then restarts it, but maybe someone has an idea what is going on.
