Re: Tuning out Xruns, cgroups usage advice

If I understand correctly hardware that worked well in 2014 with KX Studio now doesn't perform as well as it used to using an up-to-date distro. The question is then : what is different? KX Studio had some KDE tweaks. baloo , the KDE file indexer was disabled and WIFI was disabled. The other thing t...

Re: Xrauns, Audio Cutout and DSP Workload

Is Cadence reporting Xruns? Xruns sound like a crackling or clicking, not silence. If the DSP load is going up then the process involved is jackdbus or the audio app you are using. From what you've said I'd look into FFADO configuration and see what options there are, and what the best configuration...

Re: [SOLVED] Jack Transport and command line

The post with the solution to this has been deleted.

To use jack_transport in a script you can do this :

Code: Select all

echo play|jack_transport

Yes, FVWM uses ~15% now. It's a bit higher than i3wm, but not much.

Re: Extend window over two workspaces?

I improved my Xorg cpu usage when opening the Ardour mixer. It now goes from ~1% with only the editor open to ~12% with the editor and mixer open. The problem was with the settings for my graphics card. I have an AMD R7 260X and use the radeon driver. The settings are changed by editing /etc/X11/xor...

Re: 256GB Micro SD Card not deteted properly on Ubuntu Studio 19.04

I'm surprised the card doesn't appear. lsblk shows the card, not the card reader, so the card would have to be in.

You can see if the card reader appears on the USB bus with :

Code: Select all

lsusb

To copy text from a terminal select it with the mouse then use Ctrl+Alt+c. Then paste it here in a code box.

Re: Crowdfunding official audio interface support

Those drivers have to go into the kernel, (or be loadable as kernel modules, for the case they ain't could be done in open source, (mümel mümel . . )) so the need to support different variants of Linux distributions is negated. Thanks for clarifying that. When @alemusica referred to 'official drive...

Re: script for quick switch between audio interfaces via commandline

You can switch device while JACK is running using jack_control dps device hw:<x> jack_control sm You can if you're using jackdbus . Does jack_control do anything if you're using jackd ? @alignwaivers there must be a unique identifier for each card. If you do aplay -l you'll get the card indexes whic...

Re: Crowdfunding official audio interface support

It's a good idea but I can see reasons why hardware companies wouldn't be interested. First of all if a company could make a profit out of Linux support they would already be doing it. Secondly 'support' involves more than a one off payment -- it's an ongoing process. Crowdfunding could produce a ha...

Re: Linux music player recommendation

I've found DeaDBeeF plays back without gaps. Don't let the name put you off :D It's not written by committed carnivores or militant vegans -- it's a number : 0xdeadbeef.

In my head VLC is for video.

Re: Extend window over two workspaces?

It was interesting to try FVWM but I've gone back to i3wm. There were some issues with FVWM : (1) Windows couldn't be identified precisely. (2) Xorg cpu usage went up to 70% when opening the Ardour mixer. (1) could be worked around. FVWM takes a string and checks it against the window title, then cl...

If you open a terminal and type :

it will show all the disks (block devices) connected.

Re: Can the Low-Latency & KX Studios various software be installed on Lubuntu?

Lubuntu is Ubuntu with the LXDE desktop environment. LXDE is already pretty light -- I don't think there's anything much lighter.

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, and I'm compelled to disagree with Alex on principle :D
