Re: Setting up real-time organ playing

Edit it. Can do a lot. Tried it; can't do much, in fact. The thing is, what changes more with “velocity” change is attack, not the “body” of sound. Try a real piano or Pianoteq to understand what I mean. Try a real bass with slap&pop and finger style: you'll notice that just the attack seriousl...

To be honest, I never saw a soundfont which can play well with wide dynamics. While this is not that important for emulating a pipe organ, it still is.

Re: Send Program Changes to External Hardware

You also can use almost any MIDI capable DAW for that. There was a post about using Qtractor (?) even for MIDI programmed stage lighting. As I am using Ardour and Mixbus for everything I do, I usually end up writing MIDI automation on a dedicated track, then sending it to any external equipment via ...

Re: Setting up real-time organ playing

What she needs is emulation of a pipe organ, not of an electric organ Then it's probably better to go for SFZ and GIG sample libraries: they are usually bigger, and contain more velocity layers than most instruments available in SF2 format. However, a best solution would be buying Kontakt. Unfortun...

Re: Setting up real-time organ playing

What I want is to use the computer as the synthesizer. Ideally, not just a General MIDI organ, but a selection of sound fonts implementing different organs/stops. Such sound font sets are quite available (JEUX, for example) Soundfonts? Ditch that, it's an inconvenient way to play. You can fire up a...

Re: DAW Mixer control the hardware audio input/output

Does it exist elsewhere? From my experience, I can tell that soundcards are always controlled with an external control app. Maybe Presonus Studio One has something like what you want, but this functionality does now work in WINE. I think there's simply no way to achieve what you want, except adding ...

Re: Please recommend a non-JACK Linux VST host for plugin chaining

A host I can recommend is Jost. If it's somehow possible to route it to OcenAudio in ALSA (I didn't check, because I use GWC for noise removal and Ardour/Mixbus for everything else), then it will be the most useful for you. It has both JACK and ALSA support and a cool Surface feature that lets you t...

Re: Please recommend a non-JACK Linux VST host for plugin chaining

JACK has caused just as many problems as it's solved. What are them exactly? I use JACK for, like, 10 years already (first as a musician, then as an engineer), tested it in a lot of environments and applications, and it was awesome. What was always problematic to me is using ALSA backend in Ardour....

Re: Why run Windows software on Linux?

Elitistic attitude. For example my case. Busy with work and family, started learning from zero. Picked up guitar first time of my life when I was 44 years old. Can't play, don't know music theory, don't know software, don't know terms. Trying to learn everything from composing, playing instrument, ...

Re: Why run Windows software on Linux?

Now this may seem really silly, but I'd use Guitarix far more often if the gui had a few color options This definitely is! How does that affect sound quality? what is lacking among them to me, anyway, is first, the number, quality, and accessibility of presets. Wait… Presets? Are you serious? I kno...

People, why are you all so much against JACK? Did it rape your dog back in the days? If you need to route audio between applications, it's a must.

Re: I saw this on Facebook..

That's interesting, although it seems more like technology for professional audio in the realm of intercom & telecommunications rather than music. Or at least that is the impression I got while giving it a cursory look. Not that the two domains cannot cross-pollinate. How come Dante (which they...
