Re: IK Multimedia 'group buy' 2019

One budget-wise guitarist group-buy strategy: buy the Fulltone Collection for $59.95, it has excellent chorus, delay and distortion pedals (and racks). Use these with the free Amplitube Custom Shop version, then use the Custom shop to audition other stomp and rack models of interest, many of which a...

Re: IK Multimedia 'group buy' 2019

...without any slight workaround whatsoever... Well, you are already using a massive workaround called WINE... :) To me, wine is the most direct way to use windows plugins in linux. As audacity is the most direct way to edit audio in linux. As a daw is the most direct way produce complex arrangemen...

99 is the highest priority available for limits.conf These lines conclude my particular text file /etc/security/limits.conf @audio - rtprio 95 @audio - memlock unlimited #@audio - nice -19 In qjackctl, the maximim priority to choose is 89, but I often use 70, without perceiving lesser performance, a...

Re: simple software for digital piano recording

I also used safe places for kids driving practice, and blindfolded them to master the feel of engaging/releasing the clutch on a 5-speed manual transmission... They could quickly relate to the car budging as the clutch began engaging, and sense the opposite when the pedal was pushed in again. That f...

Re: simple software for digital piano recording

P.S. You do not (yet) need to know about Jack Audio I think. Without Jack Audio, this forum is a ghost town :wink: That's a bit like giving someone a car without a steering wheel, because the road ahead is a straight stretch, but a curve will appear soon enough, even a desired curve. I can almost g...

Re: Carla + Fedora = no love?

This is why many people use the KXStudio repositories for music production on Linux. As far as I know, sadly, these repositories cannot be used w/ Fedora. One must have a Debian or Ubuntu based Linux distribution. Even if a debian distro was secondary, it would still allow harvesting software packa...

Re: Carla + Fedora = no love?

Hi all, I've started playing a bit with VST yesterday, Thanks! I suggest removing all the wine parts you have installed, and installing wine-staging from winehq.org and manually installing a wineasio.dll rpm, and register it to wine with commands wine64 regsvr32 wineasio.dll and (not or) wine regsv...

Re: simple software for digital piano recording

Hi everyone, I'm quite surprised that this forum has been hiding from me for such a long time :shock: . I have a digital Yamaha P-95. I found a workaround how to record the music (Audiocity and headphone line out cable), however, people kept telling me that the quality can't be good (I have no fram...

Re: High-end plug-ins for Linux

Those are gorgeous gui's! I think the ACM's might benefit from being wider, with more empty space between controls. To me, there is too much data displayed in such close procimity, that there is no room to contemplate it without being interrupted by other data directly in view. Hope that makes sense...

Re: What kind of musician am I?

Thanks everybody, great ideas all around. Generally I think the idea is to stop thinking so hard about everything and just create stuff. I don't give myself enough credit for how much music theory I understand and how much creative ability I already have, and so I keep grasping for new things to fi...

I'm having what you might call a musician's existential crisis. * sigh * I don't expect anybody to have any magic solutions, but I'm wondering if anybody else ever experiences anything like what I'm describing?

Re: Rosegarden 17.12 couple of probs

I'm a big fan of keeping multiple distros up and running linux audio apps. In your case, having a modern debian based setup would allow you to compare notes and app/lib versions between the two systems, and use the alien command to convert between .rpm and .deb files, when some things found in kx-st...
