Re: General questions regarding the operation of guitarix

There are 16 different distortion effects. What's the difference between them? When comparing to real guitar pedals, seems that 16 isn't even good start! For example, Thomann has at the moment 586 guitar distortion pedals: https://www.thomann.de/intl/distortion_pedals.html And sure they don't even ...

Re: How do I use a soundfont that came as a zip with wav files?

If that zip contains sfz soundfont? Is there some file with name something.sfz? SFZ is text file which describes what to do with separate sample files. You can use qsampler to load sfz files. HTH.

Re: Commercial orchestral libraries in linux?

I don't know about Kontakt player. I use full Kontakt 4 and 5, they both run fine. I don't know about K6 though. Aria player also works so maybe check out Garritan Personal Orchestra Thanks, Garritan Personal would be on suitable price range for me. I'll consider it. Aria player seems to work ok, s...

Re: Eighty Eight - Ensemble wav files

Most likely encryption isn't anything too complicated, but if you aren't familiar with coding and reading hexdump you are out of luck.

Re: Eighty Eight - Ensemble wav files

Anyway, what I am wondering... is there anyway to harvest those wav files in the program and make them into SFZ sample sets? I know the process of doing it avlinux, which is what I using, but I can't get these wav files to play in any audio player. The best luck i had was with audacity; it was stil...

Re: linvst: mo' RAM ?

Would more RAM benefit wine/linvst ? Would it allow to load more instances of a demanding synth ? Like going from 16GB to 32GB. Or maybe from 16GB to 64GB. If it is memory which is bottleneck, then adding it will help. But if problem is cpu usage, then most likely not. Run 'top' in terminal when yo...

Re: Distribute sf2

I look for a particular preset of a syntetizer, I remove the reberv I connect it to Synthclone and create an sfz, then I do more scheduling and export it to sf2 that I consider simpler to use. I would like to be able to publish my libraries that are 100% created by me I am not an lawyer, but I thin...

Re: Sections for other languages

What about having sections for other languages than English? I'm not *too* fond of the idea: it will pollute the 'new/unread posts', feeds, and search results I don't like idea, based on same problems. If there would be some way to 'unsubscribe' some subforums, then this would not be a problem. I r...

Re: Commercial orchestral libraries in linux?

Login at IK, in the menus Support-->User Area-->My Products there should be a Syntronik Free entry with a serial number, That is what I meaned with 'does not make such in my products'. There isn't. And Sampletank 3 (coming from Sample Tank Custom Shop) has key, will run as standalone, but VST will ...

Re: Commercial orchestral libraries in linux?

Get the free Syntronik, if it works and authorizes, it's likely the rest of the product line will too. https://www.ikmultimedia.com/products/syntronik/ I can download it, and it installs and works. And auth works also, but asks serial number, and downloading does not make such in my products. I ask...

Re: Sonivox Orchestral Companion - problems with iLok

I did have AIR's Hybrid 3 synth registered and running via ilok-software-manager in Mint 18 a while back, but the next day, I installed a second AIR product, and it quit working. Thud. So as you intimate, ilok software manager is a tough beast to tame. Yeah, maybe good idea to stay away from all re...

Yeah, have to now make example sfz, and then write script for creating full blown sfz. SFZ is great format, because it is text, so it is easy to make with script!
