Re: Strings & Arpeggio (an exercise with VCV Rack)

The technicalities are a bit beyond me, but the final result is (once again) very enjoyable.

Re: Duck & Cover

Strange. It sounds quite weak here. I shall have to investigate - maybe it's time to recap the amp... although it's only about 45 years old :lol:

Re: Duck & Cover

I'm never keen on voiceovers on what is otherwise an instrumental. For me it just breaks continuity. The track is otherwise not bad. There is bvery little going on at lower frequencies. I don't know what source you're using for the kick, but that's rather weak too.

Looks like we'll have work to do

It seems there are major MIDI developments on the horizon :shock:

See here
The MMA do have a very good track record - let's hope it stays that way!

Remix time

It seems a while since I've put any of my own material here, so I recently remixed a track originally composed on a Yamaha SY22 + Roland Sound Canvas. It's now all Yoshimi (of course) :lol:

So please enjoy Ghost Train (with a download link)

Yoshimi Update

While tidying up CMakeLists.txt we inadvertently made a change that appeared to create a problem only for the official fedora build. Therefore we've pushed out a bugfix release V 1.5.10.1 For most of you there's no need to upgrade, although there are also a few minor niggles corrected and updates to...

Re: Towering Granite

Agree with millo. Something to think about, individual instruments played as such seem to sound quite different when played as part of an ensemble or orchestra - probably due to tiny mis-tuning of the individual ones. It is difficult to get this effect with sample sets in particular.

Forgot to mention, for the benefit of developers, there's been a lot of effort put into making the code easier to follow.

Latest Yoshimi released :)

V 1.5.10 Redwing Command Line access is now virtually complete. The graphic interface has had a minor makeover. Also, very occasional corruption of this has been resolved. All inactive controls are now shown as such - there were a number that previously weren't, thus causing considerable confusion f...

Re: Standard test needed to benchmark XRUNs

@ raboof
"How do you benchmark that you get better performance when using ALSA directly?"
For a single audio source, using ALSA directly should give better results. There's a whole chunk of RT processing taken out of the audio chain.

Re: mtf8 - the smile

very strange track. I really don't know what to make of it. Very well done, but not really for me :?
