Re: Portable setup for recording natural sounds

I use a Tascam DR-05 It works well. I had only to invest the (short) amount of time required to learn how to operate it. That Tascam DR-05 is now an obsolete model but "digital recorder" is a mature format IMHO and most units sold should record reliably close to state-of-the-art quality audio. Inexp...

Re: studio monitors

This is an update... The Yamaha HS5 speakers remain an excellent choice for me. I have since changed location. I have put the studio into a larger room of a more conventional type of building. This building/room is built on the ground, of brick and stick frame construction, with drywall, carpet, cei...

Re: My opinion about everything (TL;DR)

There is an old saying: 'when all you have is a hammer, everything looks like a nail' The saying may arise from this: "I suppose it is tempting, if the only tool you have is a hammer, to treat everything as if it were a nail." -- Abraham Maslow https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Law_of_the_instrument Tha...

Re: How can I eliminate pop sounds from alsa_in and zita-a2j working on ALSA loopback?

I'm stupid but what I would do first is record the pops and then analyse the recorded sound so that I might identify a probable origin.

Re: KXStudio 18.04 Testing

falkTX, I eagerly await the upcoming .ISO release. Any new news on the expected release date? I downloaded the beta and tested it but partially due to the no internet issue, I was unable to discover anything that might have helped with it. I was wondering if there might be a new beta available to te...

Re: studio monitors

As I still have problems with my third ! pair of Neumanns KH80 i'm going to switch them with the Presonus Eris 5 likely. I wanted to go for the KH120, but the guy in the music store said he would prefer the Eris 5 over the KH120, especially regarding the much lower price. The saved money I'll inves...

Re: studio monitors

I ultimately got a pair of the Yamaha HS5 It was a great choice. My room is very small, untreated as of yet and 8 feet wide x 16 feet long with 7 foot high ceilings. It's in a large-ish mobile home, up on stands, in the middle of nowhere, out in the boondocks. They are little light on the bass end b...

Re: Poll: What samplerate do you use with jack?

I know the poll is closed but I use 48KHz
I started using that for most stuff because one of my devices required that. I have not really found a reason to change it.
I will sometimes use other freqs for various reasons.

Re: Skip the ISO and focus on documentation?

Having the .ISO allows me to burn it onto a DVD and hand it to a friend who wants to try linux out.

I think it's important.
