Ardour + multi-interface setup

I'm using Ardour as my DAW, running Jack2 as my audio daemon, set up with Cadence. I have a 12 channel audio interface, with various gear connected, including Elektrons Digitakt and Digitone sampler/synthesizer. Elektron recently released new firmware for the Digis, which enables support for USB Cla...

Send/receive SysEx using Jack?

I'm using MIDI SysEx as an interface to a couple of Elektron synths (Digitone and Digitakt). It's possible to backup and restore patterns and sounds using SysEx. This works fine simply using amidi and dumping to file. However, I use Jack, and when Jack is running, amidi cannot connect to the Elektro...

Re: Thread for AV Linux 2020.4.10 Issues

I'm considering activating Secure Boot on my system running AVL using this guide. Are there any known issues related to Secure Boot?

Re: Midi router

Interesting project, but I didn't find the interface to be very intuitive at first glance. Is it supposed to integrate with Jack?

Re: Good compressor for mixbus

I'm not sure exactly where mixing ends and mastering begins, so in that sense I guess do a bit of both as well. Grouping things the way @bluebell does is probably good practice anyhow.

Re: Good compressor for mixbus

I would like to add a delay effect to my signal. And in this case, I want to control the dynamics on my stereo mix.

How can I know specifically what I want to achieve when I don't have the experience to know what the application is capable of? That's what I'm trying to learn here, come on.

Re: Good compressor for mixbus

Definitely try U-he Presswerk. It's not cheap, but there's a demo that's fairly non-intrusive and allows you to get a good idea of what the plugin can do. Cool, I'll check it out. Hopefully they have a trial license. Pretty sure he is talking about the mixbus, as in the stereo mix. Not the Mixbus a...

Good compressor for mixbus

I'm quite new to dynamics processing, and I'm in the process of trying to learn compression. I find experimenting with different kinds of compressors on individual tracks to be challenging, but quite rewarding - just load up a compressor, mess about with the settings, and see whether it sounds ok or...

Re: Thread for AV Linux 2020.4.10 Issues

@martibs I had another report about another kernel not showing up when installed but I can't reproduce that issue here, in fact I just switched from 5.4.28 RT to lowlatency in my AVL development VM because Virtualbox really seems to hate RT Kernels and it installed and showed up as expected.. Witho...

Yes, Unetbootin did the trick. Writing this from my new AVLinux installation. Should have read the manual :)

Re: AV Linux 2020.4.10 Released!!

I was ready to make the jump to AV Linux today, but I was not able to boot from the ISO. I have a Dell Precision 3431, with UEFI Secure Boot BIOS. I have tried both disabling Secure Boot and enabling Legacy Devices. The thumb drive appears in a list of boot devices, but when selected, fails with "Se...
