Re: NixOS and music: Experiences?

Well, decoupling jack from pulseaudio lost me RT and did nothing to help with clients that could not connect; no benefit that I can discern. I think I need to compile a matrix of jack clients and determine which ones are problematic and which ones are not. Off-hand, I know: I can use ardour, hydroge...

Re: NixOS and music: Experiences?

I distribute my config across a few files and then import them. I've attached the main one, workstation_av.nix , though I had to append a .txt extension because this forum asserted that .nix isn't a valid extension. Awesome. I really appreciate it. Other than that file, I do import pkgs.pulseaudioF...

Re: NixOS and music: Experiences?

Pulseaudio has always been a thorn in my side, too, honestly. I work around it by letting it have the onboard audio by default, and mostly use Jack in combination with the outboard interface. I'm on a laptop at the moment, though, so YMMV. That would be just fine. I'm using an Lexicon Lambda or som...

Re: NixOS and music: Experiences?

Bumping this... I've had great success on Debian for over 20 years, but I too have made the jump to NixOS and I'm having a very tough time. Jamesf, could we compare notes? Absolutely! It's a steep learning curve, so it's no surprise you're finding it rough. I can't post my current configs because I...

Re: Akai LPD8 -- Any users?

OK, I got it working. I had to go the wine route and use the proprietary editor app to initialize things; I still feel a little dirty. :) While I was at it, I dumped the sysex for future reference. But then I noticed that the exe installation includes text preset files and I'll probably just use tha...

Akai LPD8 -- Any users?

Hi,

I just got an Akai LPD8 from ebay. The pads work, but I'm having troubles with the rotary controllers; they don't seem to emit any MIDI whatsoever.

Does anybody have any experience with this device?

Thanks
