Re: [LAA] Noise repellent 0.1.5 is out!

Compiling software is not as scary as it sounds. I am not a coder, but I managed to muck through the process from the instructions on Github. I wrote a little tutorial a few months ago where I described how the process deviated from the instructions a little bit for me (on Linux Mint 19). It was bas...

Re: My New Guitar: Ibanez AM53

The price tag says $299. With tax it was about $320. It was manufactured in Indonesia, and I hope the factory there is doing some economic good for the country. My Telecaster was made in Mexico, and was in about that same price range when I bought it 20 years ago. I looked at other options, but I re...

Re: My New Guitar: Ibanez AM53

Some of the reviews complained about the pickups being weak, or something, but I have been really happy with them. Not sure what the reviews were about. The pickups are different on the higher-end Ibanez models, though, and the reviewers fawn over them. Whatever. For as much money as I wanted to spe...

First things first, you know. I had to play it for a couple of hours before I bothered to take the price tag off. :)

My New Guitar: Ibanez AM53

I have been wanting an archtop hollowbody since I was a teenager, and I finally bought one last week. Actually it is a semi-hollowbody Ibanez AM53, their entry-level archtop model. This guitar, and this manufacturer in general, gives you a lot of bang for your buck. So far I am really happy with it....

Re: Lost and Found - My "Albumatross"

Hi milo, I've been away for a while and am relieved I haven't missed this! Catchy songs and turnarounds! Very much enjoyed the DIY Indie-folk vibe, very engaging to listen to. I like how you've programmed some of the drums, a close listen indicates they are programmed but you're doing interesting t...

Re: qjackctl Won't display on Mint Sound Settings

I had trouble upgrading from Mint 18.x to 19.x. Just weird problems everywhere. Rather than troubleshoot I just did a fresh install of Mint 19 and then everything was fine. That was faster than trying to ferret out what went wrong with the upgrade. Good luck, and I hope you get it running soon!

Re: qjackctl Won't display on Mint Sound Settings

I dunno. Maybe boot with the older kernel and see if that works.

Re: qjackctl Won't display on Mint Sound Settings

Have you used qjackctl or anything like that to try to control jack? Was it working in the past and then stopped working?

Sweet! Thanks for your awesome work. Guitarix is one of my favorite tools ever. I can't believe I ever made music without it!

Re: ...more noises

Sounds like it was pulled from about 30 years ago! As soon as I heard the chorus bass intro I knew I was going to like this one. The direction you took surprised me, though -- there is a lot of random stuff in this track. It sounds like it was a lot of fun to make.

Thanks for sharing this!
