Re: What is your favorite female vocalist?

So many who are gone already (like for instance Billie Holiday), and who are still around (like for instance Youn Sun Nah), just to name a few... ... but since these are all kind of unreachable for me personally, I prefer these who I can still work with myself. During the last 3 years, some were for...

Re: First Linux DAW

P.S.: just as I was writing this post above, my RSS bookmarks got upgraded, and now http://planet.linuxaudio.org/ lists https://ubuntustudio.org/2020/10/ubuntu-studio-20-10-released/ (using KDE Plasma) as the latest news...

Re: First Linux DAW

My daughter (still 15, but soon 16) used to use UbuntuStudio on her old machine, now she's using plain Ubuntu (LTS version) plus KXStudio repos on a newer notebook (Dell with i5 and 8GB or RAM). She plays piano. I myself use Debian stable with the KXStudio repos added (and repository means that you'...

Re: Cover song recorded in Ardour

Nice song Craig! I have been meaning to check out the Salamander piano samples. There was another recording posted here recently that used it. My daughter is using it - for instance in her latest song, a 5/4 which she called "The rain's melody": https://www.wikiloops.com/backingtrack-jam-197542.php ...

Re: Linux Musicians Playlist

I'm not on Soundcloud since over 2 years or so - tho I did have a collaboration with 'nominal6' aka 'jonetsu' there, see https://soundcloud.com/wjlonien Made 11 albums on Wikiloops so far, and everything I did was made with Linux and Open Source software. There are others there who are also using/wo...

Re: new GxSVT.lv2

Hello again Hermann, hoping that you're ok and well? I know this is an old thread by now, but I just cleaned up my environment a bit and made GxSVT a central part of my setup in Ardour (waiting for Ardour 6 to hit the repos, have it in 5.12 now). Here's a track on which I've used it, both with (melo...

Re: What kind of musician am I?

Interesting thread here. For me, I'm a constant learner. Not so much of a 'jammer', but I still enjoy being a member of Wikiloops, an online 'jamming' platform where I sometimes try to add a bass to a piece if it still needs one, or I try to improve a mix, whatever. After a bit more than two years o...

Re: Jack nightmare...! Trying to get headphones working with USB mic

Like Michael said, the easiest way to get working bridges between Jack, Alsa, and Pulseaudio is to use Cadence from the KXStudio repos. You might also want to check if jack runs as jackdbus, maybe the settings of alsamixer (on command line maybe), and whether your OS settings (I'm on Gnome) chose th...

Re: USB Audio interface for low latency

Hello Alex, you haven't said something about your budget yet. The RME audio devices are well known for their low latency and their excellent sound, and I personally play bass into my Focusrite Scarlett 6i6 (2nd gen), and I'm more than happy with it. Using an RT kernel on Debian, my Cadence (from KXS...

Re: Serif font in ardour after upgrade to debian buster

yes, sorry it's mine, i forgot to return here to post: Just rename the libfontconfig.so.1 (at /opt/ardour/lib/) to libfontconfig.so.1.bkp I worked for me. Cool, thanks. That resolved both the font problems and the delayed start after upgrade to Buster (with additional KXStudio repos). Cheers, Wolfg...

Re: Scarlett 18i8 3rd Gen - constant click noises but no xruns

Hi Marco,

your user is in the audio group, and that group has access to realtime? Also, did you have the same problem with other interfaces, like the 2nd gen ones?

Cheers,

Re: Linux music player recommendation

Since switching the system sample rate every time I switch albums is not practical, Hi supereb, I'm wondering why you have to do that - my system automatically switches between everything I feed it. My audio interface is set to 48k, but 44.1 works well without any reconfiguration - and so does ever...

Re: Collaboration online

I'm at Wikiloops for the exact same reasons: having realized that I won't be famous, I just want to have fun and share and play some music (make some noise) together with others. Since I joined, I've made 7 albums - see my blog over at https://wolfgang.lonien.de/ where I list them Latest collab was ...
