Re: Automated Arch/pacman binary packages of AUR entries

Thanks for your work in putting this together. Today I got this from pacman:

Code: Select all

warning: ninjas2-git: local (2.0.0.r269.449030c-1) is newer than aur-av-bin (0.2.0.r331.a767a9e-1)

It sounds good and looks good! The dangling label made me smile. :D

Re: 2020: Suggestions for hardware ?

With the 3rd generation Ryzen chips coming out last year the hardware available has changed. The question is : would the new Ryzen chips be good for music on Linux? I think so. Unfortunately most Linux audio programs don't distribute their load very effectively among the CPU cores. Ardour can use as...

Changing that line and re-compiling is good for me. Thanks.

Re: [LAA] XPolyMonk.lv2 v0.6

At 128/48k I'm getting ~35% CPU going up to ~39% when I use the mod wheel to change the vowel. I've used the mod wheel so much it now squeaks :D I''l spray some switch cleaner in it. My computer is pretty old -- 2.6 GHz 4 core Athlon. For old hardware would being able to change the polyphony make it...

Re: [LAA] XPolyMonk.lv2 v0.6

Thanks tramp! This has changed a lot since the first version. It seems heavy on CPU. Where other heavy synths use a lot of CPU when they are playing notes and less when silent, XPolyMonk uses a lot of CPU all the time whether it is playing notes or not. The detune can be crazy on higher notes. :D I'...

Re: Distribute sf2

My thinking is the recording of a synth sound can't be copyrighted by the synth manufacturer -- otherwise artists would have to pay Korg, Roland and Yamaha royalties for any songs that use the synth. It seems logical that when you buy a synth permission to use the sounds comes with it. There are two...

Re: Spitfire Audio free sample libraries

there was enough emails to get Manda Audio to work on native Linux version of MT Power Drumkit LOL. I can't believe you chose that as an example. Much as I applaud Manda Audio for recognising Linux their recommendation at the moment is for Linux users to run MT Power DrumKit under WINE. So if you'r...

Re: Can somebody demystify JACK for me?

The trend in the wider computer audio world is to use everything as a plugin. For example VCV Rack is available as a standalone app that works perfectly well. The developer is working on VCV Rack for DAWs, which is a plugin, and people want that for some reason. It's a mindset. When did a DAW become...

Re: Remote sound device inputs to a master machine

I was under the impression from reading other threads that @Drumfix had written a Linux AVB driver.

I like the idea of audio going into my computer over a network cable -- that seems like the way things should go.

@bluebell : have you tried this? Or do you have an idea if it works?

Re: Spitfire Audio free sample libraries

In the Adobe case there was no question that Photoshop would be free or open source. There were many, many posts where people who use Adobe Creative Cloud said that Adobe was the only reason they still used Windows. They could do everything else on Linux, but needed a Windows partition for Adobe. Th...

Re: Spitfire Audio free sample libraries

@Alex : Not your worst idea but the data doesn't back it up. They'll see demand and will respond. That's wishful thinking. Do you have any evidence that that is the case? How many emails would it take? The well known example is Adobe Photoshop on Linux. Linux users keep requesting a port of Photosho...
