Re: Hello Linux Musicians

Welcome Swi! We are glad you're here. Like Michael said, there is much to learn and the curve might be a little steep at first. Definitely play with Linux in a sandbox before you try to switch your whole professional workflow over. The "old laptop" plan you mentioned in the OP is right on....

Re: Guitarix doesn't "catch" my Guitar's sound but Audacity does

Please tell us more about your audio setup. What audio interface are you using? Do you have an external USB sound interface or are you using your computer's sound card?

Re: Greetings From BC, Canada.

Welcome to the forum!

I would also suggest poking around on LMMS, which has a number of synths with decent presets.

Re: Storing projects on Google drive...concerns?

Maybe I am just overthinking about a non-issue but it's sort of been bugging me. Thanks ahead of time! I think this particular concern is probably overboard. Imagine the optics of a lawsuit brought against Google for commandeering intellectual property from their users. It would be terrible PR for ...

Re: 'Thanks for posts' plugin for phpBB3

This would be great. There is many posts which are great, but I feel replying message saying 'gr8' too stupid and spamming. Yeah, but . . . It might be better for discussion to have a limited feature set in the forum interface. Think of how much the "Like" button has shut down conversatio...

Re: I'll be back for you (instrumental version)

This is a solid effort for your first try on these tools. I especially like the chorus effect on the guitar in the quieter parts of the track. Do yourself a favor and buy a cheap bass at a pawn shop for $100. You won't regret it. Playing bass on a 6-string guitar never works out the way you hope it ...

Re: The Midnight / Hubble Space Telescope

"The Midnight" is interesting. The two voices are mostly in unison (though in different octaves), although they split here and there for brief moments. I found myself wishing for more counterpoint. Maybe I listen to too much Baroque. :) Overall I like this sound, and I think you should kee...

Re: Waves Of Memories

I agree with Michael. This piece is quite nice - both the composition and the sound engineering. A casual listener might be fooled into thinking some of those were acoustic instruments here and there. I was impressed. I listen to a lot of classical music, but I don't aspire to compose it. That's far...

Re: TuxGuitar not seen by Jack

Glad you got it working! Tuxguitar sound output is a bit temperamental in my experience, and I have one system that I never got it working on and finally gave up.

Happy TABbing!

Re: TuxGuitar not seen by Jack

Do you have the tuxguitar-jack package installed? There are separate tuxguitar packages for alsa, oss, jsa, and fluidsynth playback. See https://packages.ubuntu.com/search?keywords=tuxguitar, for instance.

Re: Little Longnose

Very nice work, psyocean! Sounds like it's warm enough in Russia to play guitar again! I like this tune a lot. It is a very nice play between softer synth sounds and the harsher guitar tones.

Re: ysi-aie "vision beyond time" debut album

Good stuff! I like this album a lot. It makes me want to bust out the old Dick Dale album and have another listen. I have always thought that Bach's Tocatta and Fugue in D minor would make an awesome surf song, especially the fugue. I am a bit intimidated by the thought of doing the arrangement (for...

Re: Cheap tablet/ereader for sheet music

Software-wise I think your best bet on a tablet is to use a pdf reader. If your music is not in pdf format then convert it on your desktop/laptop and transfer it over. There are Android apps that do music notation, but you are likely to get your data stuck in their format or in their app with no por...

Re: Do you want more people to use Linux for music?

When you put that into perspective, I would say Linux has an edge. There is plenty of software from Windoze that can run on Linux, but the vice versa is not true. While I think it is true that many potential users might feel in that way, reality is that Linux is amazing enough to be able to run sof...

Re: Do you want more people to use Linux for music?

My main reason for voting Yes in the poll is that I want to have a community full of interesting people that I can learn from, making interesting music, developing and refining tools that I can use. The actual market share of the platform is incidental to me, as long as the Linux world remains vibra...
