Re: Too dumb to understand sound settings for overdubbing

Small remark to this topic, before some of you get smoke above your heads: I surfed the net a bit further and found the remark that one must not mix internal sound card connections and USB soundcard ones. I did so on my last tries, and somehow got it to work now and then. Just an hour ago I checked ...

Re: Too dumb to understand sound settings for overdubbing

Hello Tnovelli, ... I'm using Cadence from the KXStudio PPA. You can use Cadence to stop PulseAudio if it's running, configure & run JACK, then re-run PulseAudio bridged to JACK. Also try Catia (fancy graphical patchbay) to show all your JACK connections... hopefully you'll see how to route the ...

Re: Too dumb to understand sound settings for overdubbing

Hello Asbak, thanks for your answer, even though I have the feeling that it does not address the core of my question: As I explained I seem to get along with Jack and/or ALSA in general, but I am lost with respect to the interaction of the various settings of the sound system. All in all, there are ...

Too dumb to understand sound settings for overdubbing

Hello @all, I have severe troubles in setting up my Linux box (Mint 17.2 with XFCE desktop on a T500 ThinkPad) for a rather simple task: Doing sequential multitrack recording with Audacity (2.0.5) from a wind controller optimized synthesizer (DynaSample Xpression) delivering several line-outs that a...

Re: Playing crescendi with a wind controller in QSynth or Sw

Hello Bluebell, I am afraid the blowing after the initial note-on controls the volume, and there is no higher volume than 100%. So if you start a note with a low velocity then you can't do anything to increase velocity after this note-on (which contains velocity). And you can't increase the volume b...

Playing crescendi with a wind controller in QSynth or Swami?

Hello @all, I'm not sure if my subject is sufficiently explanatory, but I couldn't find a better header - sorry! :oops: What I am trying to say: I'm playing an EWI midi wind controller. When I start a note with a rather low midi velocity neither QSynth nor Swami will allow for pointedly higher veloc...

Re: How to remap cc2 to cc11 dynamically for qsynth or swami

Thanks a lot for the pointers to the midifilter-plugin and the qmidifilter. Can't check at the moment as the relevant computer is not present, but the descriptions seem to address my issue!

Cheers,

Petra

How to remap cc2 to cc11 dynamically for qsynth or swami?

Hello @all, I am somewhat stuck with my EWI wind controller in combination with either QSynth or Swami: I'd like to map his default CC2 output (for dynamic amplitude variation in a current note) to the CC11 (expression) for either of the given sample player targets. But even after a quite extensive ...

Re: Linux music as a major player...

I listened to the demos on their website, and they sound very nice indeed. Yes, I do really like them. But, back to the original intent of the thread, my point is that most of the FOSS developers do their jobs on the basis of what brings themselves most satisfaction. Of course this is completely ok...

Re: Linux music as a major player...

Hi, which one did you get? What are it's best features and sounds? I bought the DynaSample Xpression . W/r/to its features I should better not try to list them as I certainly would omit quite a lot of them: I only have a rather limited requirement for fancy things beyond choosing an instrument and ...

Re: Linux music as a major player...

Hello folks, even though I have been silent for some time now within this thread, let me draw *my* conclusions from the arguments furthered so far: # Even if most of the FOSS programmers do their jobs for recognition and fame there should be a possibility to support them financially at least for cer...

Re: Linux music as a major player...

And then there's Misa Tri-bass: a touchscreen-operated guitar MIDI controller, runs Fedora (IIRC) inside. Interesting! However, not my kind of music that is typically performed with that. I guess that's the cause why I missed it until tonight. But the general idea is correct however, if I understoo...

Re: Linux music as a major player...

To be honest though, I had in mind more a system targeted towards the amateur bedroom musician on a budget, rather than Professional level. Completely the same over here. I am just a dilettant and I openly avow it. But after tinkering around for several months the results obtained did not even conv...

Re: Linux music as a major player...

Would there be sufficient demand to justify making an equivalent to the MintBox aimed at the musician? It would be designed to be as close to silent as possible. It would have Linux preinstalled. It would also have JACK and other audio tools preinstalled and preconfigured to work out of the box. It...

Re: Linux music as a major player...

Let's light the pipe, and say kx, avlinux, and tango, formed a corporation, sorted out the licensing, and began selling a new release, with some value-added content, not available elsewhere, perhaps some samples, utilities, and a few a nifty features, $60 on usbstick, $50 on dvd, and $40 for downlo...
