Re: Help understanding open/universal standards

This, unfortunately, is the question of all questions. If every manufacturer would mention on it's website if its hardware is Linux compatible (like they do for Windows and, often, Apple's MacOS) then we Linuxers would know what hardware to buy or not. Unfortunately, almost no hardware manufacturer ...

Re: Won't search VST2 or VST3 paths

Windows VST in an Ubuntu 19.04 Linux environment using the Carla bridge running under Wine. Neither VST2 or VST3 are found: any added directories are not searched. I MAY have a permissions problem with Carla's hidden directories causing this, and I'll have to check tonight. It's the Voxengo bass ma...

Re: Bitwig Studio 3.0 is out now.

@jonetsu: thanks. Fascinating. You switched from Ardour to Bitwig. You used to do things the "tape recorder" way. I also only know how to think in the "multi-track tape recorder from the seventies" way. Wouldn't know how to record music another way... Is there a Youtube tutorial ...

Re: Won't search VST2 or VST3 paths

Afaik carla doesn't support vst3 My version of Carla (2.0.90 aka 2.1-alpha2) seems to do. When I click on the button "Add plugin" a dialog window opens and under "Plugin format" is says, among others, "VST3". @rhollan: can you point me to a free VST3 plugin so I can te...

[maybe off topic] What do y'all like better in Bitwig than in other DAW's?

[...]And still about Xubuntu and LM, for Mixbus the following has to be run in order to use a MIDI controller: a2j_control ehw start And when that has been run, going back to Bitwig means doing: killall /usr/bin/a2jmidid Wow!

Re: Linux geek new to KxStudio

I think that you're an audiophile, am I right. Anyway, I tend to think that VST's are meant for music production with a DAW (digital audio workstation, like Ableton Live, Bitwig etc.). If you want to to things w/ Carla, midi etc.: do you use jack? Your setup is too complicated to understand for me a...

Re: Upgrade UbuntuStudio 16.04 to 18.04 repositories?

Well I shall then go through the process of delete and then re-add. I appreciate the posts. It does increase my understanding as to how some things function. Thank you all! Just follow the instruction from the KXStudio website again: https://kx.studio/Repositories. That's it. :) NOTE from KXStudio ...

The packager and falktx reguraly communicate about this on irc.

I didn't know that! Thought one could only use the KXStudio repo's for that stuff. Learned something today, thank you. :)

P.S. About that M-audi midi to USB device: you can also use a cable thingy fro Aliexpress (link). Dirt cheap and works like a charm on Linux, Android etc. No driver needed. :) Pretty darn weird that the M-Audio won't work...

Re: Having trouble setting up JACK and my VSTs with Bitwig on Manjaro

Your second prob. is starting Jack on a system w/ PulseAudio. I'll try to help you w/ that. But first: you say you have troubles w/ Carla and bridging Windows VST's. You say that the needed packages don't work/don't install. Since you use Manjaro Linux you cannot use the KXStudio repositories. That'...
