Re: Extend window over two workspaces?

I had separately controllable virtual desktops on each screen. I was looking at the FVWM FAQ and I saw this : http://www.fvwm.org/documentation/faq/#i-have-a-multi-head-setup-multiple-screens-used-under-x-how-can-i-tell-fvwm-to-use-different-configurations-for-the-screens Is that what you were talk...

Re: Linux music player recommendation

I would think that for most users resampling is a desirable feature. Otherwise music files would play back at the wrong pitch and tempo. The idea of a music player includes resampling so it can take any file in any format and play it back so it sounds at the right pitch and tempo. The only way to av...

Re: Extend window over two workspaces?

Thanks!

It's full of ideas. I'm using 2.6.9 so the syntax is a bit different but it's easily adapted.

What window manager do you use now?

Re: cyclictest

That could be the problem. From the cyclictest manpage : -h, --histogram=US Dump latency histogram to stdout after the run. US is the max latency time to be be tracked in microseconds. This option runs all threads at the same priority. 100000000 microseconds is 100 seconds.

Re: Extend window over two workspaces?

Thanks tavasti. I'm using FVWM. It allows windows to be extended off the physical screen and appear on the next 'page'. So I can have a mixer any number of physical screens wide! FVWM has been described elesewhere as 'pathologically configurable' and I've been down that rabbit hole for the past coup...

Re: cyclictest

I'm using :

Code: Select all

cyclictest -l100000000 -m -Sp90 -i200 -h400 -q
Why are you using a large value for -h?

Extend window over two workspaces?

I've got Ardour set up so the editor is on workspace 7, the mixer on 8 and plugins on 9 and 10. The mixer quickly gets bigger than my one monitor so I'd like to have the mixer span two (or more) workspaces. I'm using i3wm, but if anyone has managed this on any window manager I'd be interested to hea...

Sonic Space

Practically speaking sonic space is infinite. It’s bigger than the Visible Universe. Consider one second of digital audio. How many different seconds can be represented using sixteen bits and forty four thousand, one hundred samples? Using permutations and combinations it’s possible to work this out...

Re: Carla, Jack and Midi (ALSA?)

@cfrancesmusic : You can make connections in the Carla patchbay window. Click on the red port labelled 'UM-ONE' and drag -- a wire will come out. Now connect the wire to Carla 'midi-in'.

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

Adam Neely has a good video about 9/8. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oGN4juGQ-0A Scottish and Irish folk music is sometimes in 9/8 and the feel is : bidely-didely-didely = 1 2 3 2 2 3 3 2 3 = tri-pi-let tri-pi-let tri-pi-let There are other ways of dividing the bar : 1 2 1 2 1 2 1 2 3 which is the...

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

If I set the 'size' to 9 and the 'res' to 16 it looks like 9/8. The beats are numbered 1 2 3 4 5 which is less than ideal, but it's the right length.

Re: Template for Ardour and drumgizmo

I agree that up to date documentation would make Linux music easier to get into. Drum Gizmo is good -- it's worth trying. The way I have used it is : Add a MIDI track. Select Drum Gizmo in the dialogue. I used 'Strict-I/O'. Another small dialogue appears. Select '16 channel'. Now the button 'Fan Out...

Re: Template for Ardour and drumgizmo

The guide you linked to is old. I found Drum Gimzo straightforward to use with Ardour. When you select Drum Gizmo as a plugin there is an option to 'fan out'. Select that and Ardour creates a track for each drum. The kits are big and take a while to load. Once a kit is loaded DG works without issue ...
