Re: Roland GR-55 USB Audio

My original reason for plugging my GR-55 into my computer was to use GR55FloorBoard : GR-55FloorBoard27.png The native Linux version stopped working on Arch, so I'm now using it through WINE. This software highlights Roland's questionable attitude. The menu system on the GR-55 is not user friendly, ...

Re: Mixer app? or maybe Ardour help

Ardour can do this. On every Ardour mixer strip there are buttons labeled 'In' and 'Disk'. To monitor the input click 'In'. The default behaviour (if you don't click a button) is to use 'In' when recording, and 'Disk' when playing back -- you see a highlighting rectangle around the button switch bet...

Re: Anyone using an Audient iD interface?

It is simple. You only have to connect the input to the output inside the computer.

I use JACK so I would load Catia and connect out 1 & 2 to in 1 & 2.

@sysrqer : He's got a GeForce 8400 GS Rev. 3. The 340 drivers are the most up to date for that card I think.

Re: Any clue on these crash logs? Ubuntu Studio, SooperLooper, Hydrogen, Ardour

Is this a dual boot machine that works with Windows? That's evidence against a hardware problem. I found the low latency kernel worked with Nvidia proprietary drivers -- it was only the RT kernel that was a problem. I have seen a machine completely crash. It was because the CPU was overheating due t...

Re: USB-Midi keyboard UMK49 Jack problems.

Under the tab "Alsa" (which is secret speak for "Alsa MIDI") Just to be clear : the ALSA tab shows ALSA2JACK. If JACK is running ALSA MIDI needs to be bridged to JACK. If JACK isn't running you can use plain ALSA. @vector : Wnat you've described suggests that you need to select ...

Re: Any clue on these crash logs? Ubuntu Studio, SooperLooper, Hydrogen, Ardour

I had problems with Nvidia and a real time kernel. It never rebooted my machine though. The GUI hung. If it was my machine I would definitely think this was a hardware issue. I don't see any software problem in the logs. If you have onboard graphics available they would be worth a try. Lots of crash...

Re: USB-Midi keyboard UMK49 Jack problems.

There' are three kinds of MIDI on Linux. (Great :D ) ALSA MIDI JACK MIDI ALSA2JACK MIDI ALSA MIDI is used when JACK isn't running. ALSA2JACK is for old applications that aren't JACKified. To see if your device is recognised type this into a terminal : amidi -l If you want to use JACK you can see JAC...

Is that all messages? I normally run it as root, or on Ubuntu with sudo in front of it.

Re: Any clue on these crash logs? Ubuntu Studio, SooperLooper, Hydrogen, Ardour

I would think the system rebooting is a symptom of something wrong at a lower level. The apps crashing may be caused by this more fundamental problem. To see what the kernel was doing you can use journalctl . Here's a link to the Arch wiki on journalctl . https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Systemd...

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

I've been using computers since the early 80's and believe it or not, resent the suggestion that since my main OS is Windows that I am somehow feebleminded or incompetent. You weren't averse to typing commands into the bash, so you don't fit the definition of 'Windows User' in the original post. It...
