Re: I messed up my WINE

Not sure if this is of much use to you for future situations like this, but I've been using a program called "Timeshift" and it's been amazing for saving me a load of hassle in these situations. It's similar to system restore on Windows if you're familiar with that.

Re: Microphone recommendations for speech

Cool post, j_e_f_f_g. I enjoyed reading that. Seems that no one is afraid to recommend the SM58, budget choice or not. That's why I had to mention it. I've used one on my setup before and I felt it might've had slightly more top than my SM57. I didn't do a proper test though, just felt that way.. An...

Re: PulseAudio issues on Mint 19.1

Sorry to double post but it looks like that did the trick. Was able to plugin the 2i4 before logging in, and when I logged in, Jack had auto-started as it was supposed to and my sound worked right away with Jack sink as the audio device. I love it when a fix is that simple! Made my day :D Thanks for...

Re: PulseAudio issues on Mint 19.1

Try pulseaudio --start to start it. Do you have pulse audio volume control installed? There you can choose the audio device. Are you maybe missing pulseaudio-module-jack ? Ok. I tried starting it that way in both scenarios again and everything's the same. I just didn't get terminal error messages t...

Re: Microphone recommendations for speech

A lot of people will recommend condenser mics for this. I bought the Rode NT1 for this purpose, and while it sounds very 'true to life' and has the proximity effect, I found it to be wayyyy too sensitive for use at home. You need a decent room and a very quiet location to use a condenser. You can ge...

[SOLVED] PulseAudio issues on Mint 19.1

Hey all. I did a fresh install of Linux Mint 19.1 (Cinnamon) the other day and have been having some issues with the audio so am hoping you can help me out here.. When I boot the computer up, it appears as though pulseaudio hasn't started as there are no audio devices. If I plug in my Focusrite 2i4 ...

Re: Has anyone tried the hardware iLok USB device with linux?

Seems like they are talking about a crypt32.dll override and that dll seems to have 32bit and 64bit versions so they would need to go into syswow64 for 32bit and system32 for 64bit and then added in the Libraries tab in winecfg. There are also different versions, so some might work better than othe...

Re: Has anyone tried the hardware iLok USB device with linux?

I've tried getting an offline reg to work, but the text-entry area where their code should appear is blank. I should ask them if they will allow a reg in some other chain of actions. Thanks for sharing your experiences and common sense with regard to izotope products. Such tools have their place an...

Re: Has anyone tried the hardware iLok USB device with linux?

Yeh good luck with it. I'd be interested to hear of your results because maybe the iLok way works.. I just never bought one of them because it just seems like a glorified, overpriced USB drive as far as I can tell. I'd rather they just sell us a license to the iLok software for cheaper and let us pu...

Re: Has anyone tried the hardware iLok USB device with linux?

I haven't. Never owned an iLok. But the reason I'm replying is to say that you don't need one for iZotope plugins. I have a bunch of them and I activate them without an iLok. However, I can't get mine activated on Linux via Wine. I sent some debug info to iZotope and am hoping they figure out how to...

Re: Another IT/hobby-musician type

Welcome. I'm an IT person too (not professionally), but only really as a byproduct of being a gamer for years. And now as a Linux user, it's pushing me to learn more than I ever intended. I'd love it if someone paid me for all the bloody troubleshooting I do.. :lol: Thinking about it, I'm guessing t...

Re: Anyone used Pop!_OS ?

Thanks guys. I feel a little bit schooled (in a good way) which makes me rethink things. I said something similar to this in a earlier post, but I feel like supporting and using upstream projects like Ubuntu is generally a better idea (for various reasons) than going for any of the derivatives, unle...

Re: Make Linux fast again

In terms of having a stable, reliable system development drivers are more of a risk than disabling meltdown/spectre mitigations. I read that Intel wanted the mitigations to be 'opt-in'. The Linux kernel would be distributed without the performance hit to Intel hardware, and if you were a government...

Re: Anyone used Pop!_OS ?

So many hard assess on this forum eh.. :lol: I get it though. There are so many distros (or whatever you wanna call them. I probably am using the term too liberally.) that barely do anything differently and it's kinda ridiculous and kinda unhelpful to Linux as whole at times. I agree! But System76 s...
