Re: Bicycle Walk

The piece is quite good, the guitar duet is very nice. The mix is also pretty good. This said, it sounds 'standard', but what's wrong with 'standard' anyways ? The only thing would be with the title. The piece does not sound like a bike ride, with the air in the face, the movments, the fluidity. If ...

Re: which song is coming out of your speakers right now?

I was very well surprised by discovering that a favorite band, Koenjihyakkei, has surfaced up after many years. They performed two concerts in Russia, in Moscow and St-Petersburg. Both were recorded, and not bad at all for a simple way, sound and video are all right. The St-Petersburg video (May 14t...

jam618 - sketch

All parts are now in place for this sketch. Guitar parts will be re-recorded, drums will see variations, mixing will be done (currently only a rough mix, perhaps a bit too loud also) as well as mastering. This is still a longer piece at around 10 minutes. Ideas welcomed. It starts off smoothly then ...

Re: Do you want more people to use Linux for music?

I disagree. We need to show them that the command line works easier than searching for that one little piece of functionality in a GUI. I love the CLI and am appreciating a GUI less and less. Couldn't do without it though... Especially in the context of configuring and maintaining a system and how ...

Re: Hello Linux Musicians

I think the majority of us on this forum are music hobbyists, so our demands for convenience and performance in a production tool might not match up to yours. I think this is a great opportunity for us to learn from each other, and I hope you will feel free to contribute your own ideas and criticis...

Re: Greetings From BC, Canada.

Look into the "Mabuhay from the Philippines" thread in this section where I list all free u-he (Linux native) synths.

For instance this piece was made using those free synths (+ drums) :

Re: Utility to show the load of each CPU ?

For now I've settled on htop. To update each 100ms: htop -d 1 htop uses ncurses, so it could be that the screen updates are more specific. The regular top will also show 4 CPUs, although the screen updates seems much more slower For top: 1 : to show all CPUs s .1 : for a refresh rate of 100 ms Both ...

Re: Audio engineering on Linux

Fair enough, and you certainly make it work (very) well. Would you really recommend that to a new Linux user though? I think our community tends to forget how alien this world is to musicians who are not used to it I agree. But then on the other hand, would anyone recommend ProTools to someone who ...

Re: I'll be back for you (instrumental version)

I added the Compressor, but only made a couple of tweaks that were suggested somewhere for drums: short attack and long release, or something along those lines, and that also helped with the too high volume of the recording itself (looks like Hydrogen is quite loud, and Ardour reported many clippin...

[quote="ufug" If you think "oh, I need my Specific Brand (TM) compressor" then you will just be flat out frustrated. Yes, you can bridge some Windows plugins, and WINE is great, but overall that direction leads to madness. It's a "why bother" scenario. Just stick with W...

Re: Jojo Mayer: Drums and (digital) culture

A very interesting interview where Jojo Mayer addresses the status of music today, amongst other things. Posted a few days ago on Drum Talk Russia. Music reaching critical mass, creating musical commentaries to society, the fear of loosing money, negotiation between security and freedom, opposed ide...

Re: I'll be back for you (instrumental version)

Thanks for your feedback on the feedback ! I found it can pay to edit manually each note/event. Which in the case of high hats would be track-based work and not by pattern. A pattern usually recurs too quickly and we easily can detect it, even not consciously. It's longish work to do, and should be ...

Re: I'll be back for you (instrumental version)

The song in its essence has many good parts. The sound, when blasting fully is not bad. A bit more bass perhaps. In the quieter passages though it sounds a bit empty, and the drums do not enliven those passages. That is, if it remains an instrumental. If vocals are added - or perhaps a main melody -...

Decidedly this week was drummer Jojo Mayer's week.

This is a full concert at the Babylon Bomonti, Istanbul, 2015:
