Re: Focusrite Scarlett 2i4

Well, you could use both, as i do (keep an ubuntu vanilla and ubuntu studio) and you can boot them both from the same screen, so you don't even need to push the F11 button. I only keep studio for my audio synthesis in csound, since JACK is not copping well with default kernel, gives me a bunch of xr...

Re: Scarllet 2i2 boot problem

Have you tried running it from a different port? I have the 2i2, and have never had this happen.

Re: Why learn music theory?

Why learn music theory?
