You might be able to get this nigh-forgotten gem to run in wine.

It should have one vocal track that is completely dry, and another vocal track completely drenched in reverb. They should spend the whole song arguing as to whether it's about the reverb.

Re: Spark in the Night

I mean the song is about perseverance. It's not about the reverb.

Hmm, maybe I should write a song called "It's not about the reverb".

Re: Walk - The Argent Grub (made with Ardour)

This is lovely. Occasionally a song comes around that really hits me in the heart with some big feelings. This is one of those. Are there really only three tracks? I heard acoustic guitar, vocal, and the Yoshimi synthesizer. As milo put it, it is "powerfully minimalistic." Sometimes less r...

"Chuck the whole thing in the bin." :lol: I think I know the exact emotion that inspired that line. I'm glad you were able to use six instances of the Dragonfly plugins without any trouble. A while back there were some literal show-stopper bugs related to using more than one at a time. I d...

Re: Sync recording audio and video

Thanks, tavasti , that will probably work for me. Shotcut is able to record from a webcam and has some jack transport integration, but I didn't succeed in getting them to work together, and shotcut kept crashing, which was really frustrating. Additionally, the act of capturing video seemed to put a ...

Sync recording audio and video

I'm thinking of making a music video, but I'm having a hard time figuring out how to sync up the recording of the video and the audio. I want to record the audio one track at a time into Ardour, while at the same time recording a video of the musician performing. Then I want to use video editing sof...

Re: MX44 : Who is interested ?

The source code is here: https://github.com/ycollet/Mx44 I got it to compile. I had to install libgtk2.0-dev: ~/$ sudo apt install libgtk2.0-dev ... ~/$ cd Mx44/src/ ~/Mx44/src$ make ~/Mx44/src$ sudo make install After that I was able to run it, but I couldn't get any sound out of it because I didn'...

Re: USB soundcard: is a decent one available and useful?

Please read through a recent thread about this very topic.

The short story is that if you want to record, then yes, get a decent XLR microphone and an audio interface. Even an inexpensive audio interface will likely be much better than your onboard sound.

Re: Non-bleeding versions of drumkits?

Rainmak3r , if you hadn't bumped this thread, I would have. I also want to learn more about how the bleed feature works. In my case, I want to know if I can reduce the amount of DSP load by setting the bleed to 0%, or will DrumGizmo still do the work of processing all the samples and then silence t...

Re: Electronic drum kit

I ended up buying the Alesis Nitro Kit . It is one of the more affordable kits on the market with mesh heads. According to the review linked above, the disadvantages are "Sounds aren’t the greatest" and "No loading custom sounds or samples". Both of which are easily addressed by ...

Re: [ANN] B.Spacr sound effect plugin

This is an amazingly elegant algorithm:

Code: Select all

	for (uint32_t i = 0; i < n_samples; ++i)
	{
		output1[i] = input1[i];
		output2[i] = input2[i];
	}
