Re: Orchestra Template for Ardour

Aarrgh! I've just been displaced from my home studio for an undefined length of time! I did get sfizz ad VPO working minimally on my studio machine at home before leaving town, and so would have been in a great place to test your template, if only I were there. Nevertheless, thank you so much for yo...

Re: sfizz

@paulfd, thanks very much for your work on what seems to be a very promising solution. I was able to get it built on my "stable" music machine (Ubuntu artful, 18.10) after installing the latest CMake from source and applying the following patch on the develop branch: $ git diff diff --git ...

QSampler standalone, no "JACK" option

QSampler works fine for me when using LinuxSampler as a plugin in Ardour / Mixbus. However, when run without LS already present, it shows me only "ALSA" in the "Audio Output" type (no "JACK"). Everything else I do on the system uses Jack just fine. Anybody seen this, or...

Glen, After over thirty-five years of active work in open-source software, I can empathize completely with the need to lay down a support burden. Please know that your efforts supporting AVLinux are appreciated, and that we don't expect / need you to do any more than you are comfortable doing. Your ...

@geoffrey: Is there a better platform that we can do this on?

Re: Problem in Ardour about midi bus connection?

FWIW, I've used a MIDI bus to track the three different channels for a 'setBFree' instrument (upper console, lower console, pedals) on separate MIDI tracks: each routed the MIDI output to the bus, which is where the 'setBFree' instrument was configured. This might not be needed for those careful / c...

Re: [solved] Focusrite Scarlett 18i8 1st gen, no sound.

The "internal mixer" on my 1st gen 18i8 resets to a "muted" state when it powers off. I wrote a Python script to dump and load the mixer config via a YAML file. It might be useful for your use case:

Re: Scarlett 6i6 not working

That is actually hopeful: ALSA can see your device and query its parameters. If you run a GUI like 'qasmixer', it should be able to see / set those properties as well.

With JACK still off, can you play music through the card using Rhythmbox / Parole / whatever?

Re: Scarlett 6i6 not working

Can you shut down Cadence / JACK and try poking at it via ALSA? E.g. for my 1st-gen 18i20: $ amixer -c USB controls numid=7,iface=MIXER,name='Master 1 (Monitor) Playback Switch' numid=8,iface=MIXER,name='Master 1 (Monitor) Playback Volume' ... numid=2,iface=MIXER,name='S/PDIF Validity' numid=227,ifa...

Dump Focusrite Scarlett intermal mixer to YAML (and load it back)

I picked up a used 1st generation Scarlett 18i20, and needed a way to persist my configuration (since the ALSA-based changes don't get written to the flash). I poked around with @x42's 'scarlett_mixer', and got it working by changing all his hardcoding to match the 18i20 values. I found that unsatis...

Re: Strange bug in Firefox with PulseAudio and Soundcloud

Can you comment out / remove the two options ('enable-remixing' and 'enable-lfe-remixing') from your config file? Also, on my machine (Ubuntu Xenial) the user-specific config files for the pulseaudio daemon would be located in ~/.config/pulse/daemon.conf or ~/.config/pulse/daemon.conf.d/*.conf .

Re: Scarlet 2i4 USB Audio Not Detected at Startup

I seem to be OK getting consistent input, but getting the device to output is still having issues that I have to replug in the device, and even then it just doesn't want to produce. MarkR, just a suspicion: is it Jack-based apps which don't give you output, or something else (e.g., Firefox)? Firefo...
