Re: The Winter at Oz

Cool video! I especially liked the part where he showed how the wood structures were built. Those were amazing craftsmen, and it is amazing that the buildings have stood for so long! Thanks for sharing.

Re: Mint 19.2 how to start jackaudio?

One other detail: Audacious won't play a file that is not at the same sample rate at what JACK is running. Most of your audio files are probably in 44.1 KHz, so make sure JACK is running at 44.1 before trying to play a file in Audacious. There is a workaround for this within Ardour, an extension th...

Re: Mint 19.2 how to start jackaudio?

I'm not at my Linux box right now, because I'm a Windows user at work, so these instructions are from memory and might not be entirely accurate: 1. Go to the Audacious menu and choose the Sounds tab or submenu. 2. There is a drop-down menu for which sound system to use. The default is probably ALSA ...

Re: The Winter at Oz

I agree; the composition is better than the sound. There is some nice counterpoint in the last 1:30 or so of the piece. The end is a bit abrupt, however, and the chord progression doesn't always feel natural. That's a matter of taste. What is that interesting building with the onion bulb towers? Tha...

Re: Controlled By Unseen Forces - Electro, G#min, 94 bpm

I really like this track! Very nice all around. The whole song has a nice groove and vibe. It has an open sound, but doesn't sound empty because it is so full of ear candy. I love your sound engineering. The rhythm tracks are solid, keeping the song moving forward. The voice samples are interesting....

Re: Mint 19.2 how to start jackaudio?

Audacious can run with or without JACK. I think the default is without in most distros. You have to dig through the Audacious settings if you want to use JACK.

The same is true of Audacity.

Re: Where do your ideas come from?

I have a similar experience sometimes. I have thought of melodies in the shower, or while running, driving, or any random activity. Usually not during a cognitively demanding task, but while doing something where I can let my mind wander. I also have musical ideas that come more directly or delibera...

Re: Can't execute fluidsynth with a soundfont from a script

Don't worry, mate. We all do stupid things in shell scripts from time to time. Just be glad you didn't erase all the files in your home directory. You're always ahead of the game on days when you avoid that error! :)

Re: Mint 19.2 how to start jackaudio?

Yes, jack is running on your system. Are you able to connect audio between apps in qjackctl? Are you getting sound out to your speakers?

Re: Amazon Deep Composer

It sounds like form Amazon's perspective this is more about pushing the boundaries of AI than about making music. Music is the gimmick, or the vehicle, to push the AI envelope. Yes, they might sell a few keyboards, but it doesn't really seem like that's their focus, at least from the website. I thin...

Re: Hello everyone!

I have been using a 2nd gen Scarlett 2i2 for the last 3 years or so, and I think it's great. Works out of the box on Linux and sounds great.

Re: Light version of drumkits

That's one reason why I like the AVL Drumkits so much. They don't have a huge range of different sounds, but they are good for most things that I do, and the LV2 is really small compared to DrumGizmo.

Re: Voice of Sands - Dune (instrumental)

That's some pretty serious shredding! It's nice to play with a full band - that's something I haven't done in years. (Actually it's been over a decade! I must be getting old.) Did you do any overdubbing on the guitar? There are some parts where I hear a harmony, but it doesn't look like you are play...
