Re: LinuxMusicians' libre plugin picks, 2020 edition

If Yoshimi had a sequencer and/or arp with midi-out attached, it would be
my choice for best synth, and it is my favorite libre synth based on
16 layers, great sound selection, and some built-in effects.
With the best yet to come, no doubt...

Re: The state of Linux DAWs in 2021?

I have few problems with linux daws, but too many problems with the system files and system gui's and system managers yada yada churning out beta after beta, where I hope the daw software I need for some purpose will actually be unencumbered by this week's 'progress'. Once my core tools are working,...

Re: Best DX7 sounds – but he keeps them for himself

A few years back Jaques aka BlackWinny parsed the world's supply of dx7 sysex downloads, and painstakingly removed the duplicates and duds. He still has an active link to his archive. It unzips to a folder with 74 subdolders of sysex files. http://hsjp.eu/downloads/Dexed/Dexed_cart_1.0.zip The text ...

Re: Problems Installing 64bit Windows VST

Try renaming that wine folder so it is not detected. Then use a package manager to remove the 32 bit wine. Then find the wine 32bit compatability app in the package manager, or find the related command in a web search. When successful, run winecfg. This should create a new and working .wine folder, ...

Re: LinuxMusicians' libre plugin picks, 2020 edition

I use rakarrack the most from the many linux plugins. Technically, it's a collection of plugins,
and the variety, quality, and versatility are great for my needs.

Re: I need help installing wineasio on Ubuntu 19.10

Back in the day, I wrote myself a tutorial on how to copy wineasio to the correct directory. Obviously I've lost it since. But that's where the registration problem lies, I'm certain of it. I'll try to track it down for this Ubuntustudio 20 install, and get back to you. Never even heard of LinVST. ...

Re: I need help installing wineasio on Ubuntu 19.10

I still wonder what this wine asio is all about. I really really think you're trolling, but not in a maliscious way, :wink: so I'll byte :wink: In essence there are only two reasons to want wineasio: 1. The windows version of Reaper will occasionally be needed to host some plugin, that currently wo...
