Re: Thank-a-developer day

Whenever I post a new recording I like to link back to the project pages for all of the software I use, including plugins, and include a paragraph or two about how I used open source software in the recording/mixing/mastering process. My little way of giving a boost to the developers by spreading th...

Re: Can the Low-Latency & KX Studios various software be installed on Lubuntu?

The short answer is yes, Lubuntu should work as a drop-in replacement for Linux Mint or Ubuntu in that situation, as the base install for a system that you plan to tweak for audio work. The disclaimer is that I've never done it with Lubuntu, so there may be something unforeseen. But I doubt it. The ...

Re: Yo, What's Up Everyone? MC Josiah here!!! New to Linux music production!!!

Welcome to the forum! Deleting files in Linux is easy. I will introduce you to one of the most dangerous commands of the Unix/Linux terminal: rm . Please be aware that indiscriminate use of this command can torch your system and all of your data. I myself have lost months of priceless and unrecovera...

Re: screcord.lv2

Thanks, I will definitely try this. I think a minimalist option will come in handy here and there.

Re: screcord.lv2

Do you load this into Carla? Or is there some way to run an lv2 plugin without a host? I guess I've only ever used an lv2 plugin inside of a DAW, and obviously it wouldn't make much sense to have an audio recording plugin living inside of a DAW track. This plugin looks useful, but how do I use it?

Re: The Sunrise

Catching up on old posts . . .

This is a nice, soothing modal improv. I think I like the flanging pad synth sound best.

Thanks for posting!

Re: construct/destruct

Just found this old post, and wanted to drop a kind word. I find the recording rather listenable. It is, as you describe, droning and repetitive, entrancing. The changes happen frequently enough to keep the active listener engaged. The sounds are interesting and the rhythms have just enough momentum...

Re: New KXStudio repos on an old 16.04?

You might try downloading updated binaries for the apps you want, or compiling from source. Of course, that would probably be more work than just upgrading your OS. :)

Omega

I've been working on a remake of an old song for the last few months. This was previously a synth instrumental, but I added voices, guitars, bass, and drums. Here it is: https://alansanderson.band/2019/10/05/theres-a-bright-day-coming/ I started to get the feeling that I was working it over too much...

Re: Anyone know how to do 9/8 in Hydrogen?

Yes, you can also edit the velocity values numerically in the midi list editor: http://manual.ardour.org/midi/midi-list-editor/ . But I agree with the OP that the Ardour midi interface, while arguably adequate, is not ideal. Some people really like it, and I find it usable, but I would much prefer t...

Re: Sonic Space

Nice way to put it in perspective. Sonic space is even bigger for those of us using 48KHz. Our job, as composers, musicians, and recording engineers, is to find and extract from that pile of seconds the ones that are worth listening to, the ones that have meaning for us. We are not infinite monkeys ...

Re: Collaboration online

I have a similar library of half-baked song ideas. I'm working through them slowly, trying to not die with my music still in me. It is a generous sentiment to "open source" your music -- to just dump it all in a repository and yell "Up for grabs!" I somehow doubt that anyone woul...

Re: Last Summer

A nice little sketch with a wistful mood. I think you captured the moment well.

The ukulele sounds like the input gain was a little high, or maybe the mic was too close.

Re: Been a long time

This is really nice. A very gentle sound, like waking up slowly, feeling well-rested, and not getting out of bed for a while.

Thanks for sharing!
