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...

Re: Guitar distortion has become harsh and I don't know why

You should really use 48kHz instead 44.1kHz with guitarix. While I don't have the problem mentioned in this thread, could I get some elaboration on why 48kHz would be preferred over 44.1kHz? Is this still the case when working on a project in 44.1kHz? The reasons are multiple. Aside from tramp alre...

Re: Why run Windows software on Linux?

Wow, really ? So I'm part of the minority for having (dearly) paid for all the audio software I use ? Yeah, you are. You have my respect for that. Wait, I just saw you're from Russia. Well, sometimes I fly to Finland to see my Suomalainen friends, and almost everybody there has it all stolen, from ...

Re: Why run Windows software on Linux?

I see a lot of questions here about pretty expensive DAW's that are Windows native. Why not use (dual boot) Windows then? Because people hear and read that GNU/Linux is a rock solid environment, so they occasionally give it a try. Maybe somebody convince them to taste the GPL flavour, but, as with ...

Re: Unwanted distortion in Reaper

For me everything <= 10ms is ok. A total roundtrip is always longer than samplerate / (buffersize * n). There's an additional delay in the soundcard itself (that's why I love Presonus, they add up only 1-2 ms), there's a transfer delay on USB bus. To get to real 10< ms, you need to use buffer size ...

LinuxMusicians guys, don't get deceived by the name. This plugin has some serious balls.

Good work, tramp! It's in my go-to list for really heavy guitar tones. I especially like that this thing doesn't eat up the lows, so I still have my own control on them.
