Re: KX Studio at the End of Standard Support - what now?

recently upgraded my 16.04-based Ubuntu installation with KXStudio repos to 18.04-based.
no major problems so far, even wine (which was the most troublesome when i tried to upgrade a year ago) works.
can't say anything about DE though, because i don't use KDE/Neon, using LXDE instead.

Re: Selecting a recording mixer / interface

Zoom LiveTrak L-12 (or L-20 if 12 channels is not enough). i'm using L-12 and absolutely satisfied with it. it can record its 12 tracks + stereo master (totally 14 tracks) to an SD card simultaneously (24 bit / 44 or 48 kHz, or just 12 tracks in 96 kHz with mixer's onboard DSP EQ/reverb unavailable)...

Re: [ANN] Open Source Music FM Synthesizer Challenge starts September 15th, 2018

It's probably too late to add them, but Csound, SuperCollider3, RtCmix, and PureData all include FM synthesis capabilities and they're all open-source. There are also Cabbage plugins that do FM preenfm2 synth has both open source firmware and hardware design. so, it's probably worth considering too.

Re: Package updates in the KXStudio repositories

14.04 is starting to show its age... never mind. it's going to reach its EOL just in half a year. and everyone should be aware of it. at the moment, 16.04 is super stable, so there are no real reasons not to migrate to it. and 18.04 will become really usable in just a few months too (as it always h...

the best live-oriented software sequencer, period. i even regret a bit that i don't use it in my live setup anymore. :mrgreen: I heard of problems while building it and I would be also interested to test / use it.

Re: Please share your gnu/linux music production setup

bought a second hand Yamaha RM1x groovebox, so got rid of laptop in my live setup, and it's not Linux-based anymore, nor any other generic OS-based.

Linux machine with Harrison Mixbus is now for mixing/mastering tasks.

Re: A program like iMaschine or the Beatbuddy pedal for linux?

+1 for sequencer64.
