MIDI controller software

I'm looking for a way to send MIDI CCs from my laptop to various pieces of hardware. Are there any programs which let you map custom CCs to faders/encoders, and send them over ALSA?

Building samplecat on Ubuntu 18

I'm trying to build samplecat (stable version) on Ubuntu 19.04. It seems ffmpeg support is not possible, even though I've installed all the ffmpeg related packages. It's possible to disable ffmpeg (--disable-ffmpeg) in the configure script, however, but when I try to build it, it still fails: audio_...

Re: transition everything to Discourse

Isn't it an attitude, too, when people want to change things without thinking it over if they will increase usability or at least look better after the changes? What I have been saying over the last few posts, which you seemingly have ignored, is that the UX and look is improved on mobile devices, ...

Re: Stop Pulseaudio temporarily

Actually, scratch that: pulseaudio.service is run in the user context, so this is the correct way to stop it:

Code: Select all

$ systemctl --user stop pulseaudio

I agree, that is an ugly font. It is, however, your browsers rendition of the website. This is the CSS font property: font-family: NHaasGroteskTxPro-55Rg,"Helvetica Neue",Helvetica,Arial,sans-serif; Unless you have one of the former fonts installed, it is the browsers sans-serif type font ...

I guess you don't. If the process crashes, it autospawns. If you don't want it to run, you stop the service.

Re: Stop Pulseaudio temporarily

For any Fedora users reading this: Pulseaudio is now (since F28, I believe) handled by systemd, and the autospawn parameter is not used.

Re: transition everything to Discourse

There is something I hate: "modern" web pages "optimized" for mobile devices. Big font sizes that force me scrolling to death. "Responsive design". On each device the page looks different. Screen elements are jumping wildly around while the page is loading. I don't fin...

Re: transition everything to Discourse

I'm a relatively new user here, and coming from using the Elektronauts forum for some time now, I must say the UX on the (ancient feeling) phpBB is a let down. So I was not surprised to find this thread here. There are some arguments here that the phpBB UX is superior on desktops, and I can understa...

[Qtractor] Glitch when looping

I have created a short loop, extracted from a song in Audacity. When looping over the clip in Audacity, the playback is perfect. But when I import it to Qtractor, choose Clip->Loop Set and play back, there is a noticable glitch every time it loops back to the beginning. I remember I had the same pro...

Re: [ANN] Qtractor 0.9.5 - A Valentines'19 Hotfix Release

This might be a problem with Gnome (and Qt), but when trying to move or resize certain dialog boxes, they are fixed in position and size. In some cases, the main application window is moved/resized instead. Is this a known issue?

Loading sample in samplv2 crashes Carla

After adding the samplv2 plugin to Carla, it crashes when trying to load a sample in the plugin. It is working on other LV2 hosts on my system (Qtractor). Should I file a bug report somewhere, or is the development on hold anyway?

Re: Qtractor -> Carla -> Calf EQ = Analyzer not working

Apologies for posting this, I figured out what was wrong immediately after: Qtractor was built without the suil-devel package installed.
