Re: Classical-style piano-driven piece of music

Beautiful track, looking forward to listen to more in the future! I also thought the piano was "real": I've used the Salamander SFZ myself, and it didn't sound nearly as good as how it does in your recording... very likely the fact that you were actually playing this (there's no replacement for the ...

Re: The Iron Rod

The choirs (especially the more subdued ones at the beginning, which reminded me a bit of Russian sacred choral works) are truly beautiful! I don't know the original hymn, but your arrangement (hw the instruments play, how it progresses, builds, etc.) is amazing, and mixed skillfully: I personally t...

Re: Naked God - The Light (EBM/industrial)

The visuals are stunning! Very nice job of choosing clips and stitching them together. Thanks a lot! The videos are always rushed, taking maybe 1-2 hours. But it is fun. One day I am going to put some more effort into the video. I did it once, doing my own computer animation, based on a 3D armor th...

Re: Rated Blue "JOY" Album Released!

Listened to it while working, today, and found it nothing short of amazing... it's a bit unfair, actualy, as composition, mixing and playing are all top notch, and really make me feel I'm wasting my time when I try to do any of those myself :lol: I think I already said how much I loved "Chances are"...

Re: The Space Traveller

Flows quite nicely, you wouldn't think it's almost 40 minutes long, nice work! The voice gets a bit "weird" when it says "I'm a space traveller", but who am I to judge, I only sing in the shower :mrgreen:

Re: Spitfire Audio free sample libraries

@Rainmak3r: I mentioned dssi-vst because it was the only one that got it running for me at the time: festige (fst.exe on Fedora) apparently doesn't help either, the version of Carla I have comes with no Windows VST support, and I never managed to install LinVST properly. Is there any other method k...

Re: Spitfire Audio free sample libraries

I can confirm that the latest version (3.2.6) works with the current WineHQ wine-devel version (5.10) on my machine. If you can't upgrade to that Wine version, then you need to install a pre-3.2.x version, e.g., SpitfireAudioWinSetup-3.1.18.exe, and add the "skip_updates": true patch I outlined abo...

Re: Naked God - The Light (EBM/industrial)

Nice track! Guitars remind me of good old Die Krupps, or Paradise Lost in the "Symbol of Life" era. My only notes would be about the drums, which don't "kick" enough IMO: in an Industrial track I'd expect something to kick deeper, like Die Krupps' Isolation . The male vocals seem a bit out of tune a...

Re: Zoom/Skype replacement for Musicians on Linux?

The main issue is that it was born as a browser-based functionality on the client side, and browsers don't support Jack. Notice that you can get away with this if you're always capturing music with a microphone instead, e.g., voice and acoustic guitar. In that case, the browser should be able to fi...

Re: Zoom/Skype replacement for Musicians on Linux?

I actually opened a generic discussion on that in a separate topic: https://linuxmusicians.com/viewtopic.php?f=28&t=21617 WebRTC as a technology (which is what Jitsi uses, just as the open source server I wrote, Janus, and others) can definitely help you. The audio codec WebRTC uses is called Opus, ...

Re: Using Hydrogen to play DrumGizmo's DRS Kit

Another late entry! :) Reading this thread, I embarked on creating some h2 mappings for more recent kits than I could find here, and ended up writing a small script to generate them automatically. In the hope it's some use to someone, I'll try attaching my WIP, which has h2drumkits for Crocell V1.1...

Re: Can WebRTC help musicians?

FYI, I created a new repo and put the code for that old demo here: https://github.com/lminiero/webrtc-piano
Please let me know if you have trouble getting it to run.

Re: Can WebRTC help musicians?

I'm building an electron app to allow users to demo synths/sample libraries over the internet. I'm using node MIDI for the MIDI routing and was planning to use something like VNC for the GUI and Audio side of things, but I'm wondering if WebRTC might be able to handle that aspect. What do you think...

Re: Can WebRTC help musicians?

Yes, of course I think WebRTC can help musicians! A great thing would be to implement an alterative to programs like Jamulus (or the NINJAM clients) so that people can just plug in their instruments and play without any technical knowledge. I'm not familiar with those, but yeah, jam sessions came t...
