Re: recording EQ, compressors, etc plugins

Not sure I understand why it would be important that it happens "before" you're tracking. But, if what you want is to "save CPU/memory" by not having so many plugins running later on when you're mixing, you can put in whatever plugins you want in the channel, record the guitar part and then commit t...

Re: Distortion plugin for voice

Why not use a guitar amp simulator like you were using before? I've done similar stuff using Guitarix's lv2 plugins. You can also try KPP... I usually like doing this on a parallel channel, so I can drive the amp simulation harder, but mix it in with the "clean" signal to get more clarity.

Re: Beast

Just tried it out for a bit, played around with the new UI, looks very promising! On the other hand: I wouldn't trust a developer who chooses HTML + CSS + Javascript for UI design, especially in applications that require to be responsive to the point of being actually real time. Dig it 6 feet under ...

Re: Beat making applications for Linux.

Not sure what you mean by "beat making", but if you're willing to go "closed source / commercial", I've been using Waveform and enjoying it quite a bit. The MIDI editor is very good and comfortable to work with, there's also a rhythm / drum parts editor that's very simple but very quick to work with...

Re: Guitarix as a plugin?

This is great, thank you so much! I can load the Carla generated LV2 in Ardour and everything works great. Only caveat, state is not persistent between sessions. If I save the session and quit Ardour, when I reopen, the plugin is still in the track, Guitarix is back to it's "default" state. Is there...

Re: vcvrack.com - open source modular

Third party Rack plugins should be installed in the ~/.Rack/plugins/ folder. Doing that, I'm failing to load modules, but if I check the logs (~/.Rack/log.txt), I see these relevant lines: [info] Loading plugins from /home/fran/.Rack/plugins [warning] Failed to load library /home/fran/.Rack/plugins/...

Re: Decent but inexpensive powered near-fields

I was dealing with similar constraints than you (room size and budget) and I ended up buying the Presonus Eris E4.5. I like them a lot. Granted, speakers of that size just won't give you enough bass, but they're fairly transparent monitors otherwise. I enjoy working with them a lot. At least here in...
