Re: Bitwig Studio

I have been using Bitwig on Debian since version 1. I have previous experience with many of the Linux DAWs. I worked in music production for many tears in a past life and worked with a lot of different DAWs/sequencers on Mac, Atari, Amiga and PCs. Bitwig is pretty flexible, has an intuitive interfac...

You're looking for https://github.com/zynaddsubfx/zyn-fusion-build/wiki/Building-on-Linux What distro are you running? Did you follow the instructions in the link above?

Re: ZynFusion goes Open Source

I am one of the many who have had nothing but problems, usually with the compilation and bugs in the install scripts. If you encounter a bug the best place to track it is over on the github issue tracker. The issues with permissions have been posted for some time at various times and closed with no...

Re: ZynFusion goes Open Source

I so want this project to work. I would love to have a VST version that worked. I have donated money to the project, but I myself have only basic programing skills. I am one of the many who have had nothing but problems, usually with the compilation and bugs in the install scripts. I don't know the ...

There's no reason why you should be adding distortion when converting sampling speed in the digital domain.
It's not like in the analog world.

Re: Any recent DAW comparisons?

I indulge that this midi clip "automagic-linking" (or not) should be an user preference option, whatever, but afaik. no single soul ever complained on that before, no bug, no ticket, no request, no nothing:), until now (which isn't official, yet;))--in fact, it was once an explicit feature requeste...

Re: Any recent DAW comparisons?

Such a nice example, this is one thing that annoys me as well and keeps tripping me over every now and then. It also goes against the UX of pretty much every other program ever that copy-paste doesn't actually create a copy but a reference. Would indeed be very nice if this was either switched to a...

Re: Any recent DAW comparisons?

I often spend well more than 20 hours a week doing music production and appreciate the efficiency and flexibility. Wow! Then I consider you to be a (semi)pro. Well worth investing in a DAW that suits your needs then. I was a music pro, retired now, with the time to do computer music mostly as a hob...

Re: Any recent DAW comparisons?

FYI Ardour has an option to change the behaviour of copied clips. You can either link them, or make new copies. Somewhere in settings, advanced, forgot where now... It may be an option now, but wasn't back when I used it and more than one developer on the team said they had no intention of making i...

Re: Any recent DAW comparisons?

I have used Linux exclusively since the late 90's, except for making music. I am also an Open Source supporter and worked for more than a decade as a Linux systems engineer. I eventually moved my music production to Linux when decent music software started to appear for Linux and I eventually stoppe...

Re: The Art of Mastering

... Where mastering is making song sound that simular that they fit next to each other in tone on an album. That the high, mid, and low tones aren't to devided between the album songs. What's your vision on that? And the vision off the recording business? That is a mastering goal. But that can be a...

Re: The Art of Mastering

Some advice from a retired record producer/engineer. My opinions are going to ruffle a few feathers, but my opinions come from experience. Mastering/mixing: I used to do a lot of mastering, for vinyl and eventually digital. Sometimes I'd be mastering my own projects for final release. I used to work...

Re: 24/192 Music Downloads ...and why they make no sense

I haven't read the whole thread, but just few cents that I think might be related. ... These and similar anomalies add even more weight to the general belief that the acoustics of a room is beyond the scope of calculation or prediction, at least with any reliability, and hence the study of room aco...

Re: Your gems

...the big problem with all of your argumentation is that you're happy with the bundle. Of course you don't have to use any of the plugins. I mostly like the DAW aspect. The plugins are the icing on the cake. But it's not for everyone. I can see why people wouldn't want the plugins, but ignoring th...
