Re: The state of Linux DAWs in 2021?

Does anyone have any nice screenshots or videos of MusE v4? I tried MusE recently and the combination of finding it extremely difficult to figure out how to use and the look of the interface just put me off. I know I'm not done with it though as it definitely needs more of a chance. I want to give i...

Good for you being able to do that. I would trial and error my way to success or just give up :lol:

Re: How do you learn to use new programs?

I do a combo of reading the official manual, watching tutorial videos (official & unofficial) and just using the program of course. When I get really stuck then I ask on forums. But seriously, who the f.... Some of you read the source code to learn how to use a DAW!? That's so beyond me.. God da...

Re: Hi everyone

Well that's cool. I love that people are still using trackers. They have such retro vibes :) See you around the forum then.

Re: Hi everyone

Yeh I think that confirms what I was thinking. I can see the workflow would be very fast once you get used to it but it seems a bit too specialised for my liking. By the time I started with music software, trackers were less popular so it's just not what I learned with. They've always intrigued me t...

Re: Hi everyone

I know this isn't the point of this topic but I want to ask anyway - Do you guys like trackers just because you started with them or do you think they offer some kind of benefit over the DAWs most of us use? I had a go with Renoise a while back and while I thought it was cool n all, I just didn't se...

Re: Essential Linux plugins? (Mainly looking for SFZ & SoundFont players).

That's what all of my weekends were like 2012-2013. :) The situation is considerably better now though. I honestly think you should just start by mostly using plugins you're already familiar with on Win / Mac or that people are commonly using on those platforms. The "Linux-only" stuff ten...

Re: Distribution services & Collection societies/P.R.O.s

Thanks for the suggestions :) I'm not keen on CDBaby so will avoid them. Distrokid has a recurring fee which is the biggest issue for me. I don't want any recurring fees. I already use RouteNote but it has payment issues for me which are that they automatically pay out your royalties every month. I'...

Distribution services

I'm looking for a music distribution service that meets the following requirements: * No recurring fees of any sort. Either free to release or pay a one time fee upfront. * Royalty payments on request rather than every month automatically. * Doesn't require Paypal. * Soundcloud monetisation. * YouTu...

Re: Essential Linux plugins? (Mainly looking for SFZ & SoundFont players).

Because it was meant to be an experiment to see if I could replace all of my Windows music software with Linux music software. If/when that succeeds, I was then going to see if I could be happy making music with only open source software. I've replaced all of the other software I use for Linux nativ...

Re: Essential Linux plugins? (Mainly looking for SFZ & SoundFont players).

Plugins are actually the least of my worries. There's a few cool, creative Image-Line plugins I use in FL Studio which I'd miss but I know can live without them and probably find some kind of replacements. I love u-he stuff and they're my go to company, Linux or not. My main issue with Linux is the ...

Re: Essential Linux plugins? (Mainly looking for SFZ & SoundFont players).

They're in the .lv2 folder in home where my other lv2 plugins are. Maybe that's why it won't detect them. It detects the others though so that's weird. I'll try moving them. Thanks for the tip. I think I'm probably putting this experiment on hold for a while anyway. I've spent the entire weekend mes...

Re: Essential Linux plugins? (Mainly looking for SFZ & SoundFont players).

Yeh I'm sure I've done everything right. Qtractor just can't see them for some reason. It can see other lv2 plugins though :?

Re: Essential Linux plugins? (Mainly looking for SFZ & SoundFont players).

Ah yeh. I didn't even think to look for those x42 plugins there as they're commercial. I've installed them though so I'm just waiting for Harisson to get back to me with a license file now.. By the way, I'm having some issues with Dragonfly reverb plugins. First of all, what are the formats I've dow...
