Re: Why run Windows software on Linux?

The topic seems to deviate towards a discussion about installing certain DAW's and support for VST's in some. I respect that it's important to talk about these things. But I just wanted to know why people use Windows software (DAW's) on Linux... :)

Re: KXStudio project is currently on a break

I hope that at least the KSStudio repositories will be maintained. I rely on them for my audio software.

Re: Sitala drum plugin

@Raboof: thank you very much for clearing that up in layman's terms. So there are no dev kits and there's no person to blame here. Indeed, how Windows is so backwards compatible is a mystery to me too now. Anyway, as @kHz pointed out, I'll stop harassing y'all now 'bout my install problems. But I'd ...

Re: Jack setup issueswith some software

I installed cadence and set it up for the Focusrite - This worked with Bitwig and Reaper but not with pulse audio ie (spotify or browser) Cadence works with Jack. Pulseaudio is an "alternative" or "concurrent" for Jack. So it's no surprise that Pulse won't work w/ Jack. Because ...

Re: Sitala drum plugin

With all do respect. I'm not a developer/programmer: I know very little about it and have no experience with it. First of all I would like to thank @ScottWheeler very, very much for taking Linux seriously and porting his plugin to Linux. You're the greatest man. :) In the old days (say, around 2005)...

Re: Jack setup issueswith some software

OK great, I tried the code to kill pulse automatically, it doesn't seem to work. Do you mean the command that I posted? This command?: pkill -9 jackdbus killall jackd That command kills Jackaudio. To kill Pulseaudio I use: pulseaudio --kill Wanna start Pulseaudio? Use: pulseaudio --start Starting J...

Re: Why run Windows software on Linux?

In fact, I realized, I use windows 'DAW' in linux: mobile DAW Caustic has free of charge windows version. That windows version is not supported on any platform. I start compositions on mobile, but I may finalize them on linux, using that windows version. Typically doing some final fixes to track, o...

Re: Why run Windows software on Linux?

I don't know what impression I made w/ my post but that's exactly what I'm advocating. Impression what I got from your post is something like "How dare you come to ask me help for using windows programs on linux. Go away and use that in windows, you rich punk". Ok, maybe I overrated it a ...

Re: Why run Windows software on Linux?

Advocating linux should be smart, not fanatic. Best comment I've seen on here (or anywhere else come to that!) :D I don't know what impression I made w/ my post but that's exactly what I'm advocating. The discussion I wanted to start is not one of Linux vs. Windows. I simply wanted to gain an under...

Re: Distro with midi out of the box

This is my first post, i try to ask a thing there because I'am totaly unexperted. I'm looking for a distro that has midi working by default (then included soundfont and synthesizer configuration). If it works even live it would be appreciated, so you can try it too. Simplest way to have midi & ...

Why run Windows software on Linux?

I can absolutely understand that people run the occasional Windows application or VST, even though they use Linux. (I do! :) ) But I see a lot of questions here about pretty expensive DAW's that are Windows native. Why not use (dual boot) Windows then? Because producing music with a full blown (semi...

Re: Distro with midi out of the box

Midi works out of the box in every distro. It's supported by ALSA (Linux's sound driver). One just has to learn how to work w/ one's Midi gear in combination w/ a DAW and/or softsynth etc. Depends very much on what you want to do w/ Midi and what software (DAW) you want to use. Good luck with Linux!...
