Extensive, detailed information on the latest Samplerbox development is at: https://homspace.nl/samplerbox/ That website may be down. Here's a local copy of most of that webiste.

Debugging and Customizing Samplerbox

To access the command line in the Samplerbox, open a cmd or terminal window on your computer and type this command: ssh pi@ (of course, use the correct IP address for your SamplerBox.)
user is: pi (not root)
It will ask you for a password, which is: sbox
You will then see the Linux command prompt and you can then type in Linux commands.

Getting apt to work

If you need to load additional software into the Samplerbox, you will use the apt command. It might not work, because it can't find the software you wnat to install.
Paste the following lines at the end of /etc/hosts file mirrordirector.raspbian.org archive.raspbian.org add dns-nameservers to /etc/network/interfaces

Here is the command to install the software needed to make USB MIDI devices from M-Audio work:

apt-get install midisport-firmware # for M-Audio USB MIDI interfaces
