Rakarrack on Raspberry Pi?

Has anybody tried running Rakarrach on a Raspberry Pi? I have a Raspberry Pi 3 B that I bought a couple of years ago for a pet project. I used it for about a month and then I haven't really done much with it since. I'm thinking about wiring up an audio interface and trying to run Rakarrack, to use i...

Re: Killer Joe

Thanks everybody! But I think part of the charm in classic jazz recordings is the low-tech, single microphone sound, where the soloists have to move away from the mic when theioyr solo is done amd the next soloist just crowds them away. It's messy and sloppy, but so is jazz in a lot of ways. You mak...

Re: DPF to VST data problem ?

Like jpcima says, it might be a problem with NaN or infinite. Look at UNDENORMAL from freeverb3 or SR2_UNDENORMAL from libsamplerate for the countermeasure. It is also possible that you are using global or static variables, in which case multiple instances of your plugin will contend over the same m...

Re: Connecting a synth to my laptop ?

Then fell at the starting blocks. When I connect tascam to my laptop the only light that comes on is the phantom power light if I switch it on. There is a light for the USB cable/connection (& MIDI i/o) but it stays off. If I connect the K-station to it with MIDI i/o still nothing. Opening gnom...

Killer Joe

I recorded the lunch-time jazz band again. This time we had a new trombonist show up, which helped fill out the lows from the wind section. I dare say that my recording technique is improving, the mic placement seemed way better this time.

Re: Connecting a synth to my laptop ?

Gnome it is then, thanks. Tascam arrived this morning so I'll fiddle about over the weekend. Good luck, let us know how it goes. To be honest I don't think you'll need the alsamixer to set the sample rate. With any interface I've used, I have been able to pick the sample rate in Ardour or when I la...

Re: Strong WLAN Stick 100% Linux compatible and Distro recommendation

I have one of these: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0079XWMEI I don't know much about wifi performance, but I didn't have any trouble getting it to work on Linux; I only had to installed it and turn on the computer. I have no use for it anymore and it hardly cost anything, so if by chance you li...

Re: Primer on kernels. distro and repos

Totally off-topic, but your location of "Might be moving to Montana soon" caught my eye. Just a few weeks ago I took my family on a road trip, part of which involved visited some friends in Montana. There were some great things to see there; best of luck on your possible impending relocati...

Re: Eurydice

Does this mean you're using Ardour itself to write the MIDI parts, though? Or did you find a better workflow to just use Ardour as the "renderer"? Yes, I use Ardour to capture and edit midi tracks. I know a lot of people don't like Ardour's midi features, but I'm a strange outlier that pr...

Re: Need a good way to do this

By "pedals", do you mean physical hardware pedals, or are you using audio effects software plugins? If you are using hardware, I suggest taking a photograph of the gear when you have dialed in a combination of settings that you like. If you are using plugins, you can save your Ardour sessi...

Re: Focusrite Scarlett 2i4 Doesn't work

Which generation is the Scarlett device? How are you starting JACK? What is the output of lsusb? I'm using a first-generation Scarlett 2i4. It shows up as a USB device in qjackctl and cadence, either of which can successfully start JACK. When I run lsusb, I see the following line in the output: Bus ...

Re: Connecting a synth to my laptop ?

So I need to download this ? It depends on the interface. Some have features controlled by software, others are controlled only by the hardware dials and switches. I use Focusrite Scarlett 2i4, and have never used alsamixer. Because it doesn't have a software controllable hardware mixer :) Yes, tha...

Ah, so that is why your avatar is Tchaikovsky! I've been wondering about that for a while. Exactly! My favourite composer of all times without any doubts... I can already tell we're going to be great friends. I have his book about harmony as a reference. I'd definitely love to learn more about the ...
