Re: Mind Cavern

This is a sort of ode to metacognition that really speaks to me. As somebody who tends to overanalyze pretty much everything, I need regular reminders to get out of the Mind Cavern :lol:

Musically, I really like the piano part and the vocal harmony. Good stuff all around.

DIY large-diaphragm condenser mic

For a long time I have wanted to try a large diaphragm condenser mic, but the price of a nice one has always been more than I wanted to pay. Inspired by the initial conversation with Baba-Gau , my curiosity was piqued about building one. I looked around and found an Instructable called Modify a chea...

Does anyone know what's the best way to get in contact with him?
I don't know about now, but a few months ago he was very responsive on the sfizz Discord channel.

Dragonfly Reverb Bug

Hi all. There is a discussion on the Ardour forum about a bug in which Dragonfly Room occasionally blasts a high-decibel noise . Naturally this is very concerning to anybody who uses the Dragonfly plugins and values their hearing (which is certainly 100% of the people using these plugins). In the pa...

So great! Let us know how it goes!
Most of the parts should arrive on Saturday, so I'm hoping to get started this weekend. The capsule won't show up until next week, but hopefully I can finish it the next weekend.

Re: The Iron Rod

Who's playing the mandolin? I love that part, it's so subtle, but really hits the spot.

Edit: Oh, you're playing the mandolin... I should have read the description on your site first.

Re: hi from Greece guys!

@Baba-Gau, you got me looking at DIY microphone instructions over the weekend. This morning I bought parts to build a large diaphram condenser mic, since I only have dynamics and narrow condensers.

This is all your fault, I hope you are happy now.

Re: hi from Greece guys!

Have you tried Ardour 6? Paul Davis said Ardour relies less and less on GTK these days, it basically uses it for text input and little more. Will definitely try 6. I tend to be a bit slow on software updates. Have you tried anything other than ardour? "Idiosyncratic" software tend to inspire me! If...

Hi Baba Gau! I started reading your message and thought we're kind of the same - similar age, switched to Linux when I went to college to study computer science, musical interests... Then I got to the part about commercial failure recording studio and the motorcycle accident. Nope! I haven't experie...

Re: Beginner - record songs via midi and music notation

What is LV2? I looked it up, and the website it says that ti is an open format/standard for audio plug ins. I will be honest: as a beginner, how does this affect me? Yes, LV2 is an audio plugin format. Plugins do many different things. One type of plugin is a virtual instrument: the plugin takes yo...

Re: Beginner - record songs via midi and music notation

You can possibly do 1, 2, and 3 all in Rosegarden. I haven't used it for years though, so I'm not sure how well its features measure up to some of the other applications that have been discussed on this thread.

Re: Advice for a beginner, looking to have a go at recording.

If you are comfortable using a terminal and a text editor to update the configuration of your Linux distro, you can make a few modifications to outfit your Mint distro for realtime audio instead of putting another distro on a separate partition. I outlined how I did it for ElementaryOS . The same st...

Re: Just a little 'production' work

This collaboration is great fun, your friend's guitar work was already nice to listen to, and your enhancement made it more so. Additionally I think there's something charming about the fact that you do all of your digital work with solar power.
