Arduino/raspberry midi board ?

Hey guys I would like to try making my own midi board/footcontroller. It will be placed in either a homemade steelcase or inside the case of an old broken slightly customized board/pedal. Haven't decided yet. First of all I need to figure out how to make it work and what to put inside. I need someth...

Re: JACK xruns because of Wifi - Any workarounds?

I have an old linksys wrt54GL I got for free. I have flashed the firmware in it with openWRT, in order to make it do some more advanced stuff that has been disabled by the manufacturer. One of these things is to make its wireless connect to the main wifi on the ISP/router in the other end of the hou...

Re: Haven: Keep Watch - Snowden’s New App (GPLv3)

I get your point.. but.. This should never have been posted in here on a music forum. For me music, art, hobbies, science, programming is a "safe haven" from politics, religion, fear mongering, breaking news, the boogieman etc. When I make music I have no other mission than, telling a stor...

Re: Haven: Keep Watch - Snowden’s New App (GPLv3)

I really try to understand what it is.. but everytime I read about it or watch yt videos that explains about haven, I just keep getting dumber and dumber. For some weird reason my BS detector is ringing on this one. Again..

Re: VLC to start using JACK in AUTO?

Is there a GUI tool that can restart pulseaudio when JACK is toggled? Maybe add a feature request to QJackCtl? I don't think so.. but.. in terminal write: pulseaudio -k with tabcompletion it is probably just as quick as clicking an icon.. make a bash script an put on your desktop so you can click i...

Re: jack not working says cannot start server

You are using the jack called jack2 You can also control it with other commands. Examples: jack_control status jack_control start jack_control stop etc.. Try writing jack_ and hit your tab button (auto-completion) to see how many commands there are.. there is a man page for most of them. If you do a...

Re: VLC to start using JACK in AUTO?

BTW... Another way is to install the pulseaudio-jack package .. on Arch it is in official repo. This means that you load up jack, restart pulseaudio and it will automaticly connect to a jack sink instead of your soundcard, which is now owned by jack. When you exit and stop jack, you just restart pul...

Re: Is a realtime kernel needed?

This is a lot of great answers and explanations.. Thanks.. :) I always thought rt-kernels and lowlatency-kernels was the same thing. I mostly record guitars and have always used effects processors and direct monitoring, but I am trying to make a light transportable setup also with a laptop and a sou...

[SOLVED] Is a realtime kernel needed?

I have until now always used standard kernels, and it have (and still does) served me well for making music. Maybe because I have a very fast cpu and a lot of ram.. dunno.. It's a topic I really don't know much about, so here it goes..: 1. What are the main differences in having a realtime kernel in...

Re: jack not working says cannot start server

qjackctl cannot see the audio connections (connect button -> audio tab, nothing in there? connections windows in qjackctl wont show anything until the jack server is up running. Which jack do you have installed..? There are more than one. My distro have 3 different jack packages. http://www.jackaud...

Re: RME HSDPe AIO gets polluted by MoBo - any remedies?

My prefered setup is so minimalist that is looks worse than a windows machine from start 90's.. No DE, no icons, no menus, no network manager, no noting, mostly just scripts doing stuff I want it to.But I love it. I'm a terminal dude anyway, and don't like distraction.. And it is perfect as a studio...

Re: Guitarix starts pulseaudio ?

Installing XFCE and having pulseaudio not spawning didn't survive reboot. Window manager was not the sinner.. Avoiding dbus settings and swapping out jack2dbus with a regular jack2 did not solve any problems either But for the sake of completeness I found a fix, I'd share here for others in the futu...
