Glad you got it working MaidenHawaii. One of the instructions was to format the card using SDFormatter before you extract and load the image. This would have saved you some time.

Now as I have said many times in this forum, the error for the JackServer is NOT related to the JackMidi which you are using. There are two parts to JackCtl running on the PI. There is the MIDI portion and AUDIO portion. We only need the MIDI portion and the instructions I provided tells you how to set that up. The errors you are experiencing is for the audio server and this is because we have not configured the hardware interface. This can be ignored. Basically if you were to use the PI for audio, you would have to setup the PIs audio interface so that you can connect to other audio devices. The error has NO impact on the function that you seek.

Enjoy the versatility of the PI!

I had used the SDformatter...I think it was just my inexperience taking over...It all kinda came together after I installed NOOBS by itself...Once I got that working, I regrouped, burned the image again and presto! 
And funny thing is, I noted the error message while going through this thread, but wasn't sure what to look for when it did show up...I got so excited it worked, I forgot about the non-issue of the error message...! 

I rebooted the pi without the peripherals, and it took about 20 seconds to get connected...works like a charm!


If you don't want to see the popup every time, just deselect the "Messages" button on the main window and the next time you reboot, you won't see it. Same with the other windows as well. I'd say you are set. ;)

I will do that when I log back in later.  I would say that I am set, too.  Thank you again for the work you have put in to this, and to all who have contributed...this guitarist appreciates it!   :)

Nope. Just put it in a RPI case and go. Of course if you make your own, provide adequate ventilation such as holes or fan.

Thanks! :) I think the latest incarnation of RPI P3 it's best buy now. I need only the power brick.

After struggling some time with images, wrong sd-card sizes, connecting monitor keyboard ect. and setting everything up, I found another way that may be of interest for some of you. I am using a 'Raspberry Pi Zero W' and 'MakerSpot 8-in-1 Raspberry Pi Zero W Mega Starter Pack' which comes at around 25-30 euros. *everything runs headless*

here are the steps I took:

1) Get PiBakery (https://www.raspberrypi.org/blog/pibakery/), Setup hostname/Pw/WIFI and flash Raspbian Lite
2) Find client IDs of your MIDI-USB devices (e.g. by connecting to pi via putty) running the command "aconnect -i"
3) Create another image which connects MIDI-USB devices on every boot (in my case SA-HH->OP-1, SA-HH->GP-10, GP-10->OP-1) by adding "aconnect <src id> <dst id>"

after that, hopefully everything runs and connects at every boot! (credit goes to bleo from https://www.raspberrypi.org/forums/viewtopic.php?f=91&t=64340 )

Just avoid the usb midi adaptor that the second paragraph on the raspberrypi.org page recommends as it is the one with no opto isolator and as such shouldn't even be called a MIDI device.
I am playing all the right notes. But not necessarily in the right order.
