Re: Your Thoughts on EQs

I use the EQ10Q for narrow cuts and the built in channel EQ and bus tone controls in Mixbus32C for broad tone shaping.

Re: Handling 3/4 time sig

I am not a Muse user, but on paper and with every sequencer I have ever used a whole note always whole note and a half note is always a half note. If you want a full measure of 3/4 you want a dotted half. If you want half a measure of 3/4 you want a dotted quarter.

Re: external dac and use 5.1 sound card with an ubuntu PC

It is not 100% clear what you are trying to do, but I am pretty sure the answer is no. The 5.1 sound card is also a DAC, one with 6 analog outputs. If your external DAC sounds better and you only need 2 channels of output you can use that. If you need all 5+1 channels from the internal card you can ...

Re: Music player advise/recommendations needed

Hello All, I came across this forum while searching for a Music player recommendation. My only requirement from the player is to play the consecutive tracks without any need to create Library or Playlist. I had such a feature in Potplayer on Windows such that lets say I have 50 tracks in a folder, ...

Re: Music player advise/recommendations needed

Hello mike6190, VLC player can do this, this way - Open music folder (directory) Drag over the songs to highlight them Right click any highlighted one from the appearing menu click "Open with VLC media PLayer" Isn't that making a playlist? I mean, that's how I would do something like this too, but ...

Would you give me the same advice if I was asking about a delay plugin to learn using delays? "If you don't know what sound you want from a delay, don't bother"?
If you wanted to know how to use a delay I would ask what you were trying to do with it, sure.

Re: Good compressor for mixbus

Pretty sure he is talking about the mixbus, as in the stereo mix. Not the Mixbus as in the Harrison product. I'm quite new to dynamics processing, and I'm in the process of trying to learn compression. I find experimenting with different kinds of compressors on individual tracks to be challenging, b...

Digigram LX-Dante PCIe card

Does anyone have any experience with one of these? They officially support "Ubuntu LTS, Debian LTS, and CentOS 7".

Any other options, especially FOSS options, for Dante on Linux?

Radical Jewish music : John Zorn's Masada String Trio, live in Warsaw, Poland, 1999. 'Warning' for perhaps some, 'offensive' language at the beginning. Full concert, 1 hour: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a95ODn5k_1c (I'll reply to the covid-19 thread later, no time now) That stuff is so great. I ...

Re: How do you perform live ? (hardware, feeling, etc...)

I do a solo electronic music thing sometimes. The music is sort of weirdo ambient / noise / spectral / whatever with a fair amount of improvisation involved. I do not have a computer keyboard or mouse or monitor on stage with me because that strikes me as lame. I play bass guitar, a second bass set ...

Re: How long do you need to finish a song?

I am an obsessive reviser. It's pretty ridiculous really. I have given up on the notion of any of my compositions ever being 'finished'. My scores live in an SVN repository with more branches than a small forest. When it comes to recordings of things I am pretty much the opposite. If it isn't finish...
