Using the THR10 under Linux

Unread post by 314159 » Fri Jan 04, 2019 5:55 pm

The THR10 is recognized by Linux both as USB device and as an external soundcard. There is no version of the THR Editor for Linux, but I will show you in this post how to install the Windows version using the Wine emulator. The examples in this post were made with a Kubuntu 18.10 64 bits distribution.

0) Plug your THR using the USB cable.
1) Install Wine using your package software (or use the command: sudo apt install wine)
2) Download the THR Editor V1.1.0 for Windows on https://usa.yamaha.com/support/updates/57648_en.html
3) Extract the files from the archive with the command:

Code: Select all

$ unzip THR_Editor_V110_Win.zip
Archive:  THR_Editor_V110_Win.zip
  inflating: THR_Editor_V110_Win/Install_Guide_en.pdf  
  inflating: THR_Editor_V110_Win/Install_Guide_jp.pdf  
  inflating: THR_Editor_V110_Win/Presets/THR10C.YDL  
  inflating: THR_Editor_V110_Win/Presets/THR10X.YDL  
  inflating: THR_Editor_V110_Win/Presets/THR5A.YDL  
  inflating: THR_Editor_V110_Win/Presets/THR5_10.YDL  
  inflating: THR_Editor_V110_Win/THR_EditorSetup.msi  
4) Go into the created directory:

Code: Select all

$ cd THR_Editor_V110_Win
5) Install the THR Editor under Wine:

Code: Select all

$ msiexec /i THR_EditorSetup.msi

Don't worry with those errors due to some unfound icons.
5) Click on the THR Editor icon on your Desktop. Some seconds later the software should run perfectly !
6) Go into "Edit > Preferences...", and in DATA IN and DATA OUT fields, choose THR10 - THR10 MIDI 1 and validate.
7) Play guitar ! :music-guitarred:

I am using the THR Editor under Linux for two years, without any problem. I can help you if you encounter some difficulties.
