Re: Linux Mint user for 2 years, change?

I wouldn't budge if you're happy and invested with Mint. I run Mint 19 on my studio machine, with the kxstudio repos and a realtime kernel. I followed some of the advice in the AV Linux manual to optimize my system. Really all you need is the apps and some minor system tweaks, like the kernel. Mint ...

Re: Strong WLAN Stick 100% Linux compatible and Distro recommendation

I have used these Belkin Wireless 802.11g USB dongles: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0002HA7FY/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o08_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 . Their Linux compatibility is great, just plug and play. But their connection speed is not the fastest, and their range isn't as good as the built...

Re: Android client app for musicserver op laptop

Look in VLC for Android, in the top-left menu. (Sometimes you have to swipe down to see the menu bars.) Select "Local Network" and see if your Samba share is visible.

Re: Book about programming DSP algorithms.

Very good book for starters. http://www.dspguide.com/pdfbook.htm I've been working through this book, currently on chapter 7. It is very readable and very interesting. A few of the graphics end up on the wrong pages, and there are occasional typos, but nothing really terrible. Thanks for the link! ...

Re: Eurydice

I'll probably stick to it for writing the bulk of the stuff, but that only works if other tools can complement its missing features. For instance, Hydrogen has an easy way to quickly modify the velocities of notes, using bars: if Ardour had similar features, it would be great, but apparently you ca...

Or you could go low-tech and use a paper notebook to jot down the knob settings. Even with all of our fancy machines, it's still hard to beat the dead tree interface!

Re: Rated Blue Jam Vids

This is solid stuff! Excellent performances, both. You really nail those guitar solos, and the MOD Duo sounds great. Thanks for sharing these tunes. Do you ever use the whammy bar on your Telecaster? Mine doesn't even have one. I found when I was a teenager that whammy bars are only good for detunin...

Re: simple software for digital piano recording

I think there was a more audible difference many years ago, before the mp3 encoders got better. I remember using an awful mp3 encoder in about 2000-2002, and I was shocked at how good the audio quality was the first time I used LAME in about 2003-4. A 128 kbps mp3 encoded with LAME is virtually indi...

Re: Android client app for musicserver op laptop

I had trouble with Samba the first time I tried to set it up, but I figured it out the second time and it's been fairly easy ever since. Must have followed a better tutorial, or one for my own distro, or something like that. I think Samba works bettter than NFS on the whole, so don't be afraid to tr...

Re: Android client app for musicserver op laptop

VLC for Android can browse local networks and streaming services. Not sure if it will connect to MPD, but you could set up a Samba share on the laptop and access it from your phone over a local network. I have done that with audio and video on my home network with VLC.

Re: Not great news... AV Linux Forum shutting down September 1st

Props to you GMaq, for making a tough decision here. Scaling back is absolutely the right thing to do sometimes. You contribute hugely to the world of Linux audio, and I appreciate what you do. Keep your chin up, and churn out some great rock & roll tunes for us!

Re: Eurydice

Thanks for posting this. Very nice work with this track. Tchaikovsky was the master of program music, and this is a solid stab in that direction. (The 1812 Overture always makes me cry.) This is interesting on many levels. I appreciate the detailed discussion of how you created the track, and I defi...

Re: Dig This -Trying to make house, but feels like I am failing

I like this track. Yes, it could use a bit of polishing up, as discussed in the thread above, but I find it quite listenable as is. I'm not a big House fanatic, so I don't have a huge library of tracks to compare it to. It reminds me of 1980's New Order remixes I used to listen to when I was a teena...
