Re: Linux Digital Audio and Music Workstation Comparison Matrix

I concede that "Free Software" (in capitals) has a strict definition, as set forth by the Free Software Foundation. I don't dismiss their work, which is important and has significantly moved the dial in the direction of freedom for software overall. (Three cheers for GNU!) But the FSF does...

Re: Easiest and best way to make rock drums

Have you tried Hydrogen? It's pretty intuitive, easy to get started. Easy to route through JACK or export/import into your DAW of choice.

Re: Linux Digital Audio and Music Workstation Comparison Matrix

Therefore, there are only 2 types of software that exist; free and non-free. Any other word just plays into the efforts mentioned above to keep people ignorant. Not sure I agree with this statement. That's like separating all objects in the universe into "bananas" and "non-bananas.&q...

Very nice! She will remember this all of her life, and will play it for her own children someday.

Re: Extremophile (You're a star)

Awesome sounds, lilith! Your sound engineering is impressive. Definitely a track for an electronic audiophile.

(Makes me want to bathe in hypertonic saline, or maybe a low pH solution. Deep sea vents, anyone?)

Re: The first experiments of designing sounds on VCV Rack

One of my kids is turning 13 today, and guess what he wants for his birthday? He wants me to download and install VCV Rack on our family computer for him! I think I can make that happen . . .

I enjoyed hearing your early adventures with it, psyocean. Keep them coming!

Re: Your favourite Linux DAW's in 2019? [PLEASE VOTE AGAIN - accidentally reset poll votes!]

Could it be only marketing tactics ? Is the difference only for 'discriminating users' and has no impact for any 'commercial' mix ? I use Mixbus32C since a few years now and I like the sound. I used previously the regular Mixbus and before that Ardour. I do find a difference in the sound, a better ...

Re: Your favourite Linux DAW's in 2019? [PLEASE VOTE AGAIN - accidentally reset poll votes!]

If you guys make experiments of this kind, make sure it is a blind or double blind A/B comparison: you must compare clips by not knowing which is which: This point can't be emphasized enough. In my day job I am a medical doctor, and earlier in my career I was involved in designing and executing med...

Re: Effects Ordering In Guitarix

This is discussed at some length in a nice write-up on Guitarix at LibreMusicProduction: https://libremusicproduction.com/articles/ultimate-guide-getting-started-guitarix . The short answer is, yes, it is subjective. But there are some "best practices." Some effects are generally used on t...

Re: Your favourite Linux DAW's in 2019?

FWIW, I switched over to Linux "full time" in 2007, but I still did recording on my Windows 98 DAW for another couple of years after that. I was a poor student, and couldn't get my sound card working on Linux. I couldn't afford to buy a new audio interface. So my choice was either: 1) keep...

Re: Can't take ownership of HDD's as root

Yeh dude haha.. I've had various goes at Linux as my main OS over the past 10 years or something and always went back to Windows because I just wanted to use my computer instead of spending so much time troubleshooting and pissing around with the terminal ;( I've just come back to Linux as my main ...

Re: Recent Videos produced with (AV) Linux

Nice tunes, and nice guitars! I have played a Telecaster since 2000, and I really love it. I have been wanting an f-hole arch-top for a while but haven't pulled the trigger yet. I couldn't tell which make/model you were playing in the clip, because your camera obscured the head of the guitar. You ar...

Re: Can't take ownership of HDD's as root

Death, I can empathize with your frustrations. I have a little headless Linux box set up as a NAS on my home network, and it seems like every time I try to set up a new machine I forget how to do it and end up beating my head against the wall for hours trying to get the new machine to mount the netw...

Re: DIY etheral sounds

Paulstretch is awesome! I once took the "Bonjour" track from Disney's Beauty and the Beast and ran it through Paulstretch and a few other effects (I think I reversed it and put some reverb on it). The result was pretty cool, and (IMHO) an improvement on the original. My boys loved it, but ...
