|Target Version||3.0||Fixed in Version|
|Summary||0004579: Connection manager won't connect MIDI track outputs to hardware MIDI outputs|
|Description||Connection manager should be able to connect the output from a MIDI track to the physical output of my sound card (or A2Jmidi) but this is not allowed; those connections have to be made from the mixer or project window, which takes forever if you've got a lot to make.|
|Additional Information||Please see the attached the screenshot. The bottom-right hand section of the connection matrix should not be grayed out.|
|Tags||No tags attached.|

That is the audio connection manager; it is not intended to allow connection of MIDI ports. Does the MIDI connection manager work?
Since MIDI ports started getting a representation in audio port matrices it is debateable whether this is a silly restriction ...
|The MIDI connection manager does work, AFAICT. I'd rather have everything in one window, though; keeping it open and in the background on a 1920x1200 screen, and referring to it for making connections is way easier than anything else, and having one for MIDI and one for audio seems silly to me; just "grey out" the options that aren't possible and call it a day.|
|I personally prefer it the way it is now.. I have over 20 MIDI ports ... so it is too confusing if it is on the one page..|
|What about just separating the 'Ardour Tracks' tab into 'Ardour Audio Tracks' & 'Ardour MIDI Tracks' tabs?|
|Colinf's suggestion makes more sense and would be preferable to me, rather than having whole separate windows for audio and MIDI connections.|
Ah, having thought about it a bit more, I'm not sure my idea makes any more sense than having separate audio & MIDI connection managers.
Since audio sources can only ever be connected to audio destinations, and MIDI sources to MIDI destinations likewise, selecting a MIDI tab for a source and an audio tab for a destination will only ever show completely greyed-out connection possibilities.
In other words, I don't think there's any point in trying to unify the audio & MIDI connection managers by displaying MIDI and audio together in the same grid.
Perhaps the audio & MIDI connection managers could be combined into one window, with some means to switch the view between audio & MIDI, though.
|"not fixable" because nobody really knows what to do (for now). maybe its not a bug at all. maybe it needs a completely new idea.|
