Re: LM: alternatives to KDE - any good ?

[quote="jonetsu"I gather that Xfce is very much on the lightweight side. I would prefer for home use a desktop that's part of a distro offering stable releases.[/quote] Xubuntu is release where xfce is The desktop. Sure, you can get the same from any ubuntu, just install xubuntu-desktop pa...

Re: LM: alternatives to KDE - any good ?

I have for long (over 10 years) used xfce. Earlier had fvwm as window manager, but on changed it to Awesome. Sure, that is not system for somebody who wants system that looks and behaves same way as MS Windows. Actually, I want window manager which is highly configurable, and has possibilities to do...

Re: JACK capturing onboard mic

I suggest that you go thru all audio devices with alsamixer. With F6 you can select device.

What is your audio device you are going to use for capturing your guitar signal?

External audio interface is needed only for recording real instrumens or singing. For pure electronic music, no need for extra hw.

Re: Digital jamming for music education on upcycled PCs

Build a station where kids can create, improvise, and perform electronic music together, with a very minimal cost. Sounds interesting and important project, good luck with it! At some point I’ll also be trying to build a cheap mixer, because I need students to be able to control how much they can h...

Re: Introduction

Welcome! Indeed, even not linux is not exception from rule number 1: If there is software, you will have trouble!
Hopefully your troubles will be easily solvable.

I think you already have found right way to go, because you are mostly working with recording, Mixbus is most likely best daw for you.

Re: Introduction

My short term interest is in driving Linux synths and audio processors from Ableton Live on my Mac. I would like to be able to use Linux as a plugin host to offload some of the CPU work. If anyone else is doing this I'd like to hear from you. If you have midi+audio interfaces on both, you could sen...

Re: Why run Windows software on Linux?

what is lacking among them to me, anyway, is first, the number, quality, and accessibility of presets. Wait… Presets? Are you serious? I know virtually no engineers who use them, even with synths. Skill is far more important than “training wheels” for wannabe producers. Elitistic attitude. For exam...

Re: Why run Windows software on Linux?

The topic seems to deviate towards a discussion about installing certain DAW's and support for VST's in some. I respect that it's important to talk about these things. But I just wanted to know why people use Windows software (DAW's) on Linux... :) This must be first time of the history when intern...

Re: Jack setup issueswith some software

I run all the time setup where pulse is routed thru jack, so I have best of both worlds all the time, without switching anything in any place. How do you set this up? Cheers With pulseaudio-module-jack it is easiest to do. See https://github.com/jackaudio/jackaudio.github.com/wiki/WalkThrough_User_...

Re: Why run Windows software on Linux?

Do you really think all those people pay for their software? I never saw a human being that paid for their Windows DAW or plugins, except those who got a stretched down version of some major DAW with their soundcard or MIDI keyboard, which they don't use anyway, because they already downloaded a fu...
