Things done this week:
- Windows 10 preview running in a VM 100% ok…
- Zoom MS-50G – write program changed via USB enabling communication via sequencer… (Hint: use MIDIOX “Control Panel” to change Programs – Patch:1-6/1-8 and 7/1-2 will give you your 50 patches)
- Set up Fender Mustang to communicate via USB…
- Frustration dealing with SAPO (South African Post Office)…
Thursday a short week! :)
After lots of reading and struggling for more than a day, I finally got this right! Once you understand how to do this, it becomes a “Walk in the Park”! There is no reason, like in other mentioned posts and wiki’s to remove and re-add the VM, all you have to do is add the values to your Configuration Parameters of your VM.
To get your Windows 8.1 VM sound-enabled, you have to do the following:
- Shut down your Windows 8.1 VM
- Right-Click on the VM > Edit Settings > Option Tab > General > Configuration Parameters
- Add the following lines:
sound.present / TRUE
sound.allowGuestConnectionControl / FALSE
sound.virtualDev / hdaudio
sound.fileName / -1
sound.autodetect / TRUE
sound.pciSlotNumber / 35
- Note: The sound.pciSlotnumber value of 35 I used by looking through the values and finding the next open PCI value. Just look through the entries…
Start your VM and test by using MSTSC.
You can now use your WYSE device with full audio.

My baby-boy is 7 weeks away and my wife asked me to create a radio for the playback of some music. Well, the first thing I had to look for was a release that would give the user a smooth experience, easy to understand interface and hackable. To do this, I had 2 choices, first being Volumio, but the interface and code a bit dated. I then started looking at RuneAudio.
New year, new things.
First of all, RuneAudio comes with ArchLinux, so it is slightly different to your standard Ubuntu/Debian Linux. The first thing I had to do was get my PROXY up and running. You do this by:
The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for this blog.
Here’s an excerpt:
The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 42,000 times in 2014. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 16 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.
