Why :?: I also sure hope this isn't some Tech equivalent of buying supermarket "organic" and "ethically sourced" food, where virtue signalling consumers are charged (and happy to pay) a huge "social responsibility" markup....

MIDI Editor for hardware

Hello, I am planning to develop a MIDI editor for a MIDI device and interface because the manufacturer only provides editors for the settings and mixing for non linux platforms.

What about semi-pro stuff (=not 100% studio)?

Re: No sound in web browsers

I had a similar issue recently: Pulseaudio sink broken

I also assume that some update broke it. Still no idea how to bring this back to work.

Pulseaudio sink broken

Hello fellow linux audio enthusiasts, I do not know how it happened but apparently since a few recent updates on my system the pulseaudio sink is not working any more. Before using the audio player or web videos while jack was turned on worked like a charm. I am using a Linux Mint 18.2 together with...

Re: Paul Davis at LAC 2017

I would say though that there is a difference that perhaps make Linux somewhat harder: the fact that more often than on other OSes we need to configure not-audio related parts of the system in order to maximize audio performances (see all the realTimeConfigQuickScan checks), and usually by editing ...
