Re: jam300

Hi GMaq, For some reason just saw your comment today. I saw lillith's some time ago though. I'm actively working on that piece. The main concern is in overdoing it, shadowing the initial freshness/intent. Yes, additional percs, fills here and there, even a break would be welcomed. A new guitar lick ...

Re: My New Guitar: Ibanez AM53

It looks like a nice guitar. Actually many guitars can be just nice. I'd say the most important is the action, eg. how far from the neck are the strings and if a luthier has a shot at it, how far down can they be before buzzing. And of course the sound. As for me, I'd like an acoustic steel-string G...

Re: 2020: Suggestions for hardware ?

Since SSDs are getting cheaper and cheaper I won't buy any magnetical disks anymore, even on my server. VMs running there are much "snappier" now. Magnetical disks were a real bottleneck. I took a quick look at the prices and indeed, they are very competitive to the regular drives. I'll c...

Re: Bitwig 16 Track

The Bitwig drum machine is straightforward and works alongside the sampler. Each drum element can be fine tuned according to the Bitwig sampler features. Each drum element has choke capabilities and has it's own FX. But moreover, clips can be superimposed for editing. Here I'm creating some snare hi...

"They Live" - movie review

Watched yesterday a movie I wanted to see for some time, "They Live" by John Carpenter. Yes, the underlying idea, taken as a metaphor, is good but, the development of the movie is not so good at all. Maybe that's just because it's an American movie of that time. I mean, much time is wasted...

Re: 2020: Suggestions for hardware ?

Unfortunately most Linux audio programs don't distribute their load very effectively among the CPU cores. So go for single thread performance since more than about 4 cores won't help. Many u-he synths, which are my gotos, support multicore. At least Diva and Bazille. Hive and Zebra2, maybe, don't r...

2020: Suggestions for hardware ?

It might be time to update the years-old machine in the scope of building one that will last for the next batch of years. Currently I run a i5-3570 CPU @ 3.40GHz that has 4 processors, using 16 GB of RAM and a M-Audio 10101LT PCI interface. I would like ot keep the same interface if possible, meanin...

Re: linvst: mo' RAM ?

If CPU is the problem, you may need to 'record' some of the synths to audio track instead of playing all instances simultaneously as synths. Since quite some time I'm offloading (bouncing) some synth tracks. Now with very capable synths such as MSoundFactory and Icarus2, the processing is quite not...

Re: linvst: mo' RAM ?

There is LinVst-X https://github.com/osxmidi/LinVst-X Wow. This is great ! Yes, I know about some plugins, that I have, to uses inter-plugin communications, Voxengo GlissEQ being one. Some Melda plugins also are using that. So far I just tossed these features aside. I bet it could also help with th...

Re: Bitwig 16 Track

If you think you'll make better music, I doubt it. We already have a lot to help us craft good stuff with free software. I doubt there's a clips/scenes -> Arranger approach in 'free' software. It's a bit like saying you got a good 3-speed-hub bicycle, I doubt you'd me riding better with a 10-speed....

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.

Re: Bitwig 16 Track

I certainly do not see any genre-limiting aspect to Bitwig. The concept of clips and scenes to create and their real-time recording into an Arranger to compose can be applied to any style of music. The EDM tag could be from the use of Bitwig's synth This sized-down 16-track version seems to offer ju...

Re: Sections for other languages

An alternative could perhaps follow this use case: a topic or a reply is found in one of the main sections. But then, a participant would like to express better in his/her own native language. For this purpose there would be a general 'language' section. As a form of a parenthesis. Where some commen...

Re: Phrasebox arpeggiator

That seems to be a very good find, for both the plugin itself, and for the fact that this company is making Linux plugins.

Cheers.

Re: jam300

Thanks for the comments, and also thanks for the illustration, psyocean ! Always makes me smile, those. The first guitar lines would be sounding kind of like an Ennio Morricone soundtrack, perhaps in the same vein as the harmonica in "The Good, the Bad and the Ugly" (or was it another Serg...
