Re: Folkpop and other experiments from Chile and Mexico

The ska 'Lxs frágiles después' is great fun. Nice to hear some horns. We had a strong ska scene here when my kids were teens, hope it comes back and stays alive! It's a pretty cheery genre. Music can make us oldsters feel younger 8) You might enjoy the ProteusVX plugin, if you get wine, Reaper, and ...

Re: My (aka Ben Enkindle) newest trance release, plus other electronic experiments

I like how these songs expand as they go, with lots of energy and surprises. The sound choices are fine, quite evocative, and very guitar-practice friendly. There's enough going on in each song, without pointless distractions 'just because'. Four down, and will hear the rest soon...
Cheers

Re: Another dimension room (album of guitar instrumental music)

These songs have nice bending and blending of sounds, and solid themes that don't wander. The various styles and tonalities added within songs are tastefully done, and don't segregate the music into sections, the main theme is enhanced, and the stories unfold. I would modify the intro to the first s...

Re: Cleopatra (EP)

While listening, this seemed orchestral and cinematic. The rock elements worked well, and didn't seem out of place to me. I imagine the process of taking an idea to various concepts, to rough drafts, and on to finished works, Is a combo of hard work applied to giftedness, or at least strong passions...

Re: AV Linux MX Edition 23.2 ISO update released!

I don't have much space on my internal drives.

Plus your spinning drives will last longer not having to bounce around in search of epmpty parki...

Re: Dynebolic returns from hibernation

I used dynebolic a lot, still have a CD on a spindle somewhere. I think it had zynaddsubfx and hydrogen, but it's been awhile. I Also used Fedora CCRMA, Suse Jacklab, with the innovative wineasio they came up with, and Caldera, which I think also went into the Suse enclave. Maybe Jaromil will post a...

Re: Did I see an Atari, with Jean Michel Jarre live ?

Atari has good midi spec because good chips are on the motherboard, rather than data bussed to some interface. Here is a recent discussion that goes into some detail about midi jitter, PPQN, timing, swing, and feel, and how they relate to good music. Lots of new and old hardware/software solutions a...

Re: How Long Does It Take To Learn The Guitar?

@ Gmaq: This interview of a pair of guitar legends has some interesting insights, that I think concur with some of your sentiments. https://youtu.be/_1bkZIDuGBU My goals are to create music that some people would want to hear multiple times, or that might at least stir the pot for them, to experimen...

Linux user got Ableton running in linux, made a video

The video is in German, and a KVR member had success by following the video. But the terminal commands are in Englsh. Installing several vcruns and sundries with winetricks seems to have turned the key. They are shown in a terminal just after the 5 minute mark of the 14 minute video. https://youtu.b...

Re: Status of WineASIO on AVL-MXE

I'm not sure, but I think wineasio needs a code maintainer to keep it up to date with current distros and latest wine releases. It is still useful, even important for a few cool softwares. But using an extra slightly older distro on an external drive isn't bad luck. Can also be helpful if one wants ...
