Re: Are there any big artists that use FOSS software?

is it? If someone say "pay or die", do you still say you have a choice then without speaking about force? If you move force further up the chain and say that people are forced to work then Karl Marx would agree. The Marxist narrative is that without access to a piece of land from which to...

Re: BackupBand 0.D

I've never had anything like this happen before so it's a bit weird trying to figure out what's actually happened :/ Don't take this the wrong way. What's actually happened is called 'user error'. :) But it still complains there are no instruments when I launch the program, even if I copy it over t...

Re: Please share your gnu/linux music production setup

If you want lower latency then it's worth the effort. Also you'll probably get more out the system by optimising your setup for audio. For Fedora Planet CCRMA is a good resource. You could start another thread about optimising Fedora.

Re: Cannot record any sound

I'm guessing you pressed a button on the preamp marked '+20dB'. That's not phantom power. If your mic has a battery then you don't need phantom power.

The o/p said he was going to try changing the battery in the mic. I bet that's what it is.

Re: Cannot record any sound

The Audiophile 2496 has phono (RCA) connectors if I remember correctly. You could try a line level signal into those to check it. The problem does sound like it's on the analogue side though. The Audiophile 2496 uses an ice1712 chip, which is very linux friendly. The chip itself can do twelve inputs...

Re: Cannot record any sound

The connections window you posted shows twelve inputs. That implies there is more than a mic preamp involved.

Re: Tuning the system by disabling mitigations

A good practical test is how many notes on pianoteq, since the DSP load goes up with the number of notes played.

Re: Are there any big artists that use FOSS software?

I found an interesting graph here

The nearly invisible grey bit is Linux. You can see that windows is going down, taken up by 'unknown', which, if you're optimistic, could be Linux.

Re: Are there any big artists that use FOSS software?

'Forced' is a bit different from 'having no choice'. If you you had a choice you could be forced to choose one of the options. If you have no choice ... there's no choice. If someone is given a work computer by the company they work for and it has windows installed then they have no choice but to us...

Re: Can't take ownership of exFAT HDD's as root

@Death Here's some commands that will change the ownership of your backup drive. $ sudo umount mountpoint Because your drive was automatically mounted the mountpoint will probably disappear, so to be on the safe side make a new directory. $ sudo mkdir /mnt/backup Check your user id is 1000. $ id -u ...

Re: Are there any big artists that use FOSS software?

The short answer seems to be 'no'. At the moment big and art don't seem to be compatible. Corporations don't look for talent, they want someone with a certain look and a willingness to cooperate. Once an 'artist' reaches this corporate level they are wired into the global cash nexus of deals, endors...

Hopefully in the future you'll try solutions out before you post inaccurate information. In a previous post you implied Death was lying due to your lack of knowledge. Don't do that.
