1 # mda EPiano
2
3 This is an LV2 port of the mda EPiano VSTi (not to be confused with the
4 [mda Piano](/lv2/mdapiano.html)). The original VST that this port is
5 based on was written by Paul Kellett.

10 ## Compiling
11
12 To compile the mda Piano plugin, just execute the following statement:
13
14 make && sudo make install
15
16 This will copy the compiled plugin to `/usr/local/lib/lv2`. To change
17 the target prefix, pass the `PREFIX` variable to `make`.
18
19 To build the mda EPiano plugin, pass `TYPE=mdaEPiano` to `make`:
20
21 make TYPE=mdaEPiano
22 sudo make install TYPE=mdaEPiano
23
24 **NOTE**: you will need the [lvtoolkit libraries](http://lvtoolkit.org) to
25 compile this plugin.

28 ## Connecting
29
30 You will need an LV2 host to use the plugin. I'm using `jalv.gtk`:
31
32 jalv.gtk http://elephly.net/lv2/mdaPiano
33
34 You should now be able to connect your MIDI device to the plugin via JACK. Also
35 don't forget to connect the plugin's stereo output to your system's outputs:
36
37 jack_connect system:playback_1 mdaPiano:left
38 jack_connect system:playback_2 mdaPiano:right
39
40 I provide a simple connect script with the code which does these things
41 automatically.
