Also, I just see you are using 3.0.5. The issue might just have been fixed in upstream (latest git master). Things, like this mruby gem, can change, and zyn devs can not predict this. So 3.0.5 may have worked, but changes in Arch Linux may have broken them, which can only be fixed in a new mruby-zest-build version.

Also, please note that zyn devs are neither creators of the PKGBUILD, nor are responsible for it. So If TheZoid says "the lack of info on their site and no reply here in 12 days... It doesn't look good, nor make them look trustworthy.", this is not justified. Zyn devs do not read here, usually.

While the AUR fails for me, too, I can easily build and run it without AUR:

cd /tmp
git clone
cd mruby-zest-build/
git submodule update --init --recursive
make pack
cd -
git clone
cd zynaddsubfx/
git submodule update --init --recursive
mkdir gcc
cd gcc
cmake -DGuiModule=zest -DZynFusionDir=/tmp/mruby-zest-build/package ..
./src/zynaddsubfx -O jack -a # GUI shows up and I can play music

So it seems to be a problem with this PKGBUILD, not with zyn. For example, I noticed that the README's build instruction changed and does not contain make builddep anymore, but the PKGBUILD does contain it. Same for make setup. There may be more errors in the PKGBUILD.

@TheZoid; why think the zynaddsubfx folk would check here?

Bug reported.

Can confirm the issue mentioned by notacube, citronvert, and hubate too, and still no answer here, nothing about it on zynfusions forum on KVR audio nor in their bug tracker on Sourceforge.

I also noticed that they are treating the mandatory $45 for the full version as a donation, which may mean one can't get a refund even if one cannot install it. There's no information anywhere on their site on the topic (Not good either way). I added it to my cart and since it asked to "Name a fair price", I entered $10 but it only accepted $45 or more. I didn't buy it: Not that $45 is too much, but the lack of info on their site and no reply here in 12 days... It doesn't look good, nor make them look trustworthy.

I still am toying with trying an installer from their site (not recommended over a repo), or filing a bug report which entails signing up and the risk of junk email... Oh dear )<:

I'm having the same problem as citronvert. I don't know exactly why it is happening, but I would assume that it is as a result of mruby-pack being removed from the mruby/mgem-list github repository.

I'm unable to install zyn-fusion from AUR :

GIT -> build/mrbgems/mgem-list Clonage dans '/home/jonathan/.cache/yay/zyn-fusion/src/mruby-zest-build/mruby/build/mrbgems/mgem-list'... [...] rake aborted! mgem not found: mruby-pack

Can I get some help please ?

It seems to only be needed if dssi is installed, which causes the DSSI plugin to be built.

You can add the dependency locally if you really want that plugin, but my advice would be to simply uninstall dssi, as there is little reason to use that anymore. I don’t know of any host that will only take DSSI plugins and neither LV2 (essentially the successor of LADSPA+DSSI) nor VST. Both of which allow better retention of ZynAddSubFX parameters in my experience (especially instrument selection).

I have old tracks that were made in Renoise with the DSSI plugin, and apparently, only the indices of the instruments were stored in the file, so when opening the files again later with a different list of ZynAddSubFX instruments installed, the instruments were all wrong and I had to select them again (assuming that I even remembered which ones they were supposed to be). When using the LV2 or VST plugin, that doesn’t seem to happen—all the instrument parameters seem to be saved directly in the music file, or at least that’s my recollection of it.
