Re: Linux music player recommendation

What sound pressure level do you usually listen your music at?... We could do just fine with fewer than 16 bits for masters if it weren't for the myth that lower bit depths create larger "stairsteps" in a waveform. The best that a "modern" studio reel to reel could do was the eq...

Re: Linux music player recommendation

Why would you use a full blown DAW just to host a couple of plugins? There's Carla for that. That's a good question. I'm using MX Linux 18. The kxstudio repos require having libc6 >= 2.27 installed, MX 18 repos only go to 2.24, so no Carla. I already had Ardour installed on my laptop, and it is low...

Re: Linux music player recommendation

I've found DeaDBeeF plays back without gaps... Give a chance to the Jriver... Thanks for the suggestions! I was thinking I'd DeaDBeeF with Pulse Audio/Jack sink -> Ardour (plugin host) so I can play youtube or spotify through the system as well, but looks like Jriver has all of those capabilities i...

Re: Linux music player recommendation

After thinking about it the simplest option is to convert your 16/44 files to 24/96. Then you'll factor out resampling. Hard drives are cheap these days... I was thinking I would need to go that way, but I didn't realize how prevalent media players with high quality SRC were. VLC has Sox as an opti...

I did not know that Pulseaudio could be configured to use Sox.

After starting this thread I found that VLC might be an option that could meet my criteria, otherwise I'm using Jack and piecing things together.

Re: Linux music player recommendation

Why do you “need” all that stuff?... You made some assumptions my level of experience and about what I am doing that are incorrect. The "binauralizer" I am using is not something to "enhance" the sound. It's purpose is to load .sofa files ( https://www.sofaconventions.org/mediaw...

Re: Linux music player recommendation

I would think that for most users resampling is a desirable feature... Indeed it is. I have used resamplers that are transparent and some that have audible artifacts. Since switching the system sample rate every time I switch albums is not practical, I'll have to use a reseampler, I just want to ma...

Linux music player recommendation

I would like to set up a laptop as a music player for headphone listening, but have some unique requirements, which none of the players I've found seem to meet. I need to be able to playback through a couple of plugins - a parametic EQ as well as either an IR loader or a .sofa file plugin (Sparta Bi...

Re: Ultralite AVB

@supereb : some questions about this AVB driver : - settings (frequency, frames,...) - latency ? - did you try some recording ? - do you use midi ? I run 44.1kHz, buffer size of 126*, 2 periods, and jack in synchronous mode (jackd -S...), 7.16mS (if I remember correctly). When running AVB, the resu...

Re: Ultralite AVB

I just wanted to report that I have successfully installed and am now using Drumfix's AVB driver.

It was quite easy to install and set up as long as you follow all of the instructions (which I did not at first). :wink:

That's a step in the right direction. Thanks for doing that!

Re: Do you want more people to use Linux for music?

Regardless of individual capability, attracting people to Linux comes down to ease of use and some performance benefit. Although I am now "into" Linux, and with great pleasure have gone further and deeper into Linux than I imagined, my main reasons for coming over was that Microsoft has gr...

Re: MIDI out in LinVST? (Jam Origin MIDI Guitar)

It's been a while, but I'm pretty sure I've used Jamstix midi out to drive BFD3, both running using linvst.
