Re: Why learn music theory?

The first blues songs was on 1 chord, and just by making chords substitutions and introducing V-I, II-V-I and VI-II-V-I chords progressions, they made it to the jazz over the years. Beside that, what one will need most to learn to play is to practice. It's funny how people with some musical educati...

Re: Are you addicted to a genre of music?

But generally, what make me feel a music have a meaning is its lyrics But that's totally against the core idea of music: to transmit a message without using a single word. If a musical piece requires presence of lyrics, then it's plainly weak. That's the reason I still haven't put online any of my ...

Re: dkbuilder: from circuit to LV2 plugin

That depend on your taste. I, for example, love it loud. Using a amplifier to amplify the incoming signal. My setting is that I can't hear my guitar, when connected via jack to output, without amplification. I do the same, I first setup the input chain so that the input peak level doesn't go over 0...

Re: dkbuilder: from circuit to LV2 plugin

I made 2 simulations. The first one is a simple 2 stages preamp, the BlowMePreamplifier: https://pastebin.com/Mrj7uWPX and the BlowMeAmp: https://pastebin.com/hSYgmW0b It lack a tone control stage for now. The parameters for the transformers are guess for now. When I run ./build-plug.py -i BlowMeAmp...

Re: dkbuilder: from circuit to LV2 plugin

I have a new question. When an amp plugin is loaded into JACK, it can provide a huge signal gain, and in order to not saturate jack , but to really get the sound of the plugin, the output level must be adjusted somewhere. Is it enough to assume than the output level of the plugin must be about the s...

Re: dkbuilder: from circuit to LV2 plugin

Here you'll find some nice schematics for speaker simulations, http://www.hexeguitar.com/diy/techinfo/cabsims Interesting! With my theremin, which I can also use as guitar amplifier, I made comparaison with its own speaker (an antique philips) and a Fender Champ speaker. The difference in sound is ...

Re: dkbuilder: from circuit to LV2 plugin

Thank you, I will try it later. For now, I am making a Blow Me Amplifier simulation with 2 x 6L6 in PP and a driver with a single ended EL84. It is simpler than the JCM or the Marshall and should provide a better sound. I call it the Blow Me Amp because if someone want to build it, he will have to c...

Re: dkbuilder: from circuit to LV2 plugin

I simplified it further by replacing the Input and Volume potentiometers by resistors. I also changed the Vcmd, this make the sound louder, but the Gain pot still doesn't work.

Re: dkbuilder: from circuit to LV2 plugin

I added 2 Cga condensators, the Miller caps, and now the dkbuilder is happy:

In guitarix, the control is here, I can change it, but it doesn't work, the sound doesn't change.

Re: dkbuilder: from circuit to LV2 plugin

I did a quick test, the In/Output miss the refdes field, you schould paste the ones from the Startset.sch. R4 should be P4 (P = variable resistor, 3 connection) and miss some values (value=500k,var=Trim,a=3), but even then, nothing comes out of the simulation. Now it work, but I get another error a...
