To nitpick, VST3 plugins can be GPL v3 licensed, VST2 is somewhat in a legal limbo..

Re: dedicated subforum for foreign software on wine issues

I'm personally not sure why this is needed? IMO, it's just another plugin format with other runtime libs, and some inherent disadvantages. Should mentioning a windows vst in a discussion about using limiters be off limit for instance? On the other hand it might be useful to have the main threads in ...

Re: Open Source, Communities, and the Incoming New EU Copyrights Regulations

Note that the EU parliament has to pass it into law at a later date, this was just one signpost on the way.

Re: Anyone using Caustic (3.2) ?

I don't think a virtual machine will work very well, at least if you want low latency. I did try a few years ago, and the result was pretty miserable, but the years have moved on, and I've actually been thinking about trying again to see what has improved. Note that for 64b wineasio you need to do w...

Re: Anyone using Caustic (3.2) ?

For those experiencing problems with wineasio and various wine installations, check that the 32/64b wineasio.dll.so are installed in the right places. If they were installed in /usr/lib/wine, etc, it won't work with a wine installed in /opt or elsewhere. You'd have to copy the libs manually to the r...

Re: Sonarworks Headphone Calibration Plugin

Jack, I'm on Arch64 too and in Reaper, how does this plugin look? I've tried it in reaper from AUR and I get a gui that's hard to explain. I don't get asked for a key. It looks like the plugin loads but freezes. Are you using KDE or Plasma? Sorry for the late reply, been busy with work :S I'm using...

I just tested even though it's worked the entire time for me, this continues working without any problems. 64b Archlinux/Reaper.

Re: Stereo widening

One video that could be helpful in the general sense is one from Michael White (Whitney Houston, David Bowie, David Byrne, James Taylor, Jimi Hendrix remixes, etc...). This is from a 'Mixing with Mike' session, so it's a different kind of tutorial, much more like sitting in a mixing seat watching w...

Re: Arch Linux system optimization for Audio Work (SuperCollider/Pure Data) ?

IMO, install a rt kernel and the realtime-privileges package, and use rtprio to raise the priority of your soundcard. Take much of the other rest of the advice with a pinch of salt.. Yes it might be useful to change the cpu powersave governor too. Start with that and then ask for more advice if you ...

Re: Installing Melodyne

What installer did you use to install melodyne? I've tried this a few times over the years and had it working in wine many years ago, but so far I didn't manage to get it working again. Will try again with the latest wine and melodyne installers. Just the plugin or the full version too? Edit: I just...

FWIW, I didn't manage to make the online registration work, but I'm on a real crappy 3G at the moment. With the offline installation it worked, once I got a new key that wasn't taken by someone else, even though I claimed it in this thread, and then waited 10 hours or so :roll: The DSP and selecting...

Re: Very large value suggested by jack_iodelay

Oh, that's nice and low. What kind of card is that if I may ask?

You could use 19/20 for a perfect result :)

You could also playback and record a square wave or a single sample spike and zoom-in in your daw for extra verification.
