Re: Learning audio mastering. Linux first?

Most of the time we don't record on the computer in real time, we use a Zoom recorder, which provides handy WAV files. I see. If you are processing one stereo track then it is more like mastering. If you've hit the limits of Audacity and don't want to use Reaper then Ardour is the obvious choice. S...

Re: Learning audio mastering. Linux first?

ramendik If you're an IT specialist you may be looking for the computer audio equivalent of Hello World. Start with the basics and build it up. So what is the computer audio equivalent of Hello World? First you have to define a goal. In Hello World the goal is to compile an executable. In audio the...

Re: Trying to make something Jean Michel Jarre could have made.

You're getting a bit complicated now. :) Most chords in common usage come from one of three scales : Major Harmonic minor Melodic minor A diminished seventh comes from the harmonic minor. If you were in C harmonic minor the seventh chord built on B is a diminished seventh. So B diminished can resolv...

Re: Trying to make something Jean Michel Jarre could have made.

Simple Version : In a root position seventh chord the interval between the lowest note and the highest note is a seventh. With intervals you mean the distance between the keys / notes ? Yes. You could learn them by rote but It's better to relate theory to a sound and you could do that by working wi...

Re: Trying to make something Jean Michel Jarre could have made.

I am starting to under stand 7th chords, all though part of me wants to start to rant about who came up with those names. It uses 4 notes, now why would some like to call that a 7th :roll: If you want you can call C7 'chocolate cake' and call G7 'banana pie'. But if you do that don't expect anyone ...

Re: Room response measurement

I've used REW on Linux. I don't use it for corrective EQ -- I'm skeptical about how well that would work for bass. REW did show up lumps in my room response which I would think are best dealt with using acoustic treatment. The resulting graph shows three main bumps which I would assume are front to ...

This sounds like a good approach.

I don't think you'd hear much with a low pass at 40Hz. You mean to remove the extreme high and low end? That's a highpass at 40Hz and a lowpass at 15kHz.

Re: Sitala v 1.0 is out

The preferred way to install a .deb on Arch is to use a PKGBUILD. This means pacman is managing all your packages, which is what you want. The PKGBUILD for sitala-bin in the AUR is out of date -- it's pointing to a beta release. Version 1.0 fixed GUI issues on my system, so that's the one you want. ...

Re: ERROR: JackEngine::XRun: client

If you told me you had a fast, multi-processor chip and were getting 'good' for everything on realtimeconfigquickscan I would expect your system to go like a rocket so you have my sympathy that that is not the case.

Re: ERROR: JackEngine::XRun: client

It's the exact same behavior with the internal card. That rules out a USB problem. This leaves trying a different graphics card or the nouveau drivers. Now, before @sysrqer jumps in to point out how rubbish the nouveau drivers are this would just be to identify the problem, not as a long term solut...

Re: ERROR: JackEngine::XRun: client

Debugging, eh? If you keep ruling things out you will get to the problem. Analysing what has happened so far : in the first rtirq status output there were two nvidia IRQs using 0.8 and 0.2 % CPU. It doesn't seem much, but they are wanting attention and could get in the way of the soundcard. In my rt...

Re: ERROR: JackEngine::XRun: client

Edit /etc/rtirq.conf with this :

Code: Select all

RTIRQ_NAME_LIST="xhci"
Then do

Code: Select all

$ sudo rtirq restart
Then post

Code: Select all

$ rtirq status
again.

Have you noticed any difference?

Re: ERROR: JackEngine::XRun: client

It's kind of disappointing to hear that a 3700x isn't giving good performance. I thought they would. I have a quad core Athlon and I can run Guitarix at a buffer of 8! 8 isn't an option in the dropdown -- I have to type it in. :) Mixbus may use more DSP so it may need a larger buffer. Still, I would...
