Re: How do you choose your music distributor - e.g. CD Baby, DistroKid, TuneCore?

If by admin access you mean username/password, this concludes the process changes per distributor. No you don't give them your username and password. You just have to grant them admin access to your Soundcloud account. I've never liked the idea and it doesn't make sense to me that they need that le...

To monetise your songs on Soundcloud through a distributor you do.

Re: Tracktion Waveform based DAW's - Tracktion Engine?

Ah yeh, I think that thread was where I heard about it actually. It'd be nice if there was a space to watch somewhere that projects built on Tracktion Engine were listed. Maybe this thread can turn into that place if somewhere doesn't already exist.. As we discover these projects, I could add them t...

Re: How do you choose your music distributor - e.g. CD Baby, DistroKid, TuneCore?

Yeh EmuBands have been really good to me so far so I can recommend them as I've been using them for years now. You lost me a bit with the Soundcloud thing there. Some people can monetise directly through Soundcloud, but I think that's just a small, select group of people at the moment. The rest of u...

Re: Linux Mint 18.3 / 19.x : extremely slow booting problem

I'm not sure I can be of much help here, but just out of interest, which kernel are you running and how did you install it? To tell you which kernel: uname -a I'm running Linux Mint 19.1 with this kernel "4.15.0-43-lowlatency #46-Ubuntu SMP PREEMPT Thu Dec 6 17:28:08 UTC 2018 x86_64 x86_64 x86_...

Tracktion Engine based DAW's

A month or so ago I read an article somewhere about Tracktion releasing a developer kit (Tracktion Engine) which people can use to make music software (DAW's, instruments & effects etc). I was really interested to see what came out of it. I've used Tracktion 7 and demo'd the latest version of Wa...

Re: How do you choose your music distributor - e.g. CD Baby, DistroKid, TuneCore?

I'm going to ask other distributors about the Content ID . https://www.orfium.com/ is new to me. How do you compare it to CD Baby and Distro Kid (the most popular as of now)? Yes. This is something I always do now. Ask them the requirements for releasing a claim. RouteNote make it way too easy so a...

Re: How do you choose your music distributor - e.g. CD Baby, DistroKid, TuneCore?

Update on my research: Soundrop is best (and free) option for free auto-split payments. I'm going to check them out. I'm always looking at these services to see who looks best. And just a note on RouteNote for anyone considering them - they're crap with how they handle Content ID claims. All someon...

Re: One month and counting without RT kernel on Arch Linux

Interesting! I'll try this out when my distro provides 4.19 (not far off now). I think the low latency kernel may cause some occasional instabilities on my system so I've been thinking of trying out the regular kernel again anyway. Thanks for reporting :)

Re: Where can I get classic wavetables or extract them from db files?

In the last link I posted, in the left menu there are multiple entires like bw_saw, bw_tri or bw_squ. These are bandlimited saw, triangle or square waves. Can't be more classic than that :? Yeh, some of them do look familiar actually. They weren't in the pack I downloaded though. Those packs were s...

Re: noise in line

First of all, check what bit depth you're recording at. If your soundcard can do 24 bit, then use it. That'll lower the noise floor. Try not to record too quietly either as that causes more audible noise in the recording. But obviously don't go above 0db when you record because that will cause nasty...

Re: Where can I get classic wavetables or extract them from db files?

I went through them all and they're not the kind of thing I'm looking for. I'm mostly looking for classic sawtooth wavetables really. But some other shapes would be nice also. I don't remember hearing anything like that in that pack :/ I did check them all..

Re: Can't play media files

First of all, when you get asked if you're root, that usually means you need to run the command with 'sudo' at the start. So what you should've done is ran sudo apt-get install pulseaudio-module-jack I somehow got Jack setup to output all system sounds so I can always use Jack. I cannot bloody tell ...

Re: Where can I get classic wavetables or extract them from db files?

Thanks. I've downloaded the Zebra 2 pack but it doesn't look like there's any classic analogue synth samples in there :/ There are some FM ones but I can't tell what they're from as the labelling is very vague. I'll have a play with them anyway as there could be some nice sounds in there! But what I...

Re: help me reduce latency

You do have Jack setup, right? I have a more powerful computer and I normally use 44.1khz and 512 sample buffer with the low latency kernel. My latency is reported to be 11.6ms, although I might find it's a little higher if I did a loopback test, not sure. Anyway, if I want lower latency then I can ...
