Re: Unubtu20.04 /linux-image-5.x-lowlatency, useful or not?

Yes, It would be extremely helpful if the MusE docu would provide up-to-date information about the necessary Linux system tweaks. I must admit that this is a challenging issue, mostly because of the variety of different Linux systems. The script https://github.com/raboof/realtimeconfigquickscan is e...

Re: Unubtu20.04 /linux-image-5.x-lowlatency, useful or not?

... The Ubuntu Studio repository has a useful package (ubuntustudio-performance-tweaks) for this. I still had xruns after doing everything and it turned out that the wlan card was causing it. Thanks for the info; I'll try this Perl script, just for curiosity. The web is full of relaltime voodoo stu...

Second Calf-Fluidsynt-LV2 instance looses presets

Im using two Calf-Fluidsynt-LV2 instances to provide different effects. With the first instance, everything is fine. The presets are stored and reloaded. The second instance falls back to all channels with preset "Grand Piano". This is a show stopper. Is MusE unable to handle two instances of the sa...

Re: how to bounce midi to audio?

Thanx for the info, once again I did something wrong. Muted MIDI track perhaps? This would be too stupid. Wasn't there the message "must select at least one wave track"?
I will try again.

Re: how to bounce midi to audio?

I tried to bounce a soft synth to a track and this does not work! Only wave tracks can be bounced to a wave track. To "bounce" a part of a synth track to a wave track, you have to - create the wave track - set its audio input to the synth's output - put track in record mode - playback the desired se...

Re: Unubtu20.04 /linux-image-5.x-lowlatency, useful or not?

Humm, I know exactly what the definition of "real time" is; this is my job btw. I was rather asking if someone actually reduced the XRUNs with the lowlatency kernel. PC-Desktop-Linux will never ever become a true realtime system! But: IN THE MEANTIME I MANAGED TO GET RID OF ANY XRUN! NO XRUN AT ALL!...

Re: MIDI questions: Local off? Auto-monitor selected MIDI track?

Hi and thanx for the explanations. 1) Menu entry "Local off": I will have to test this some more. I guess this is what I should use to silence my HW-synths. 2) Auto-monitor MIDI track: There are other important things to do and this feature is not that important. Not creating a feature request. Can ...

MIDI questions: Local off? Auto-monitor selected MIDI track?

Hi again, just some questions this time (not a bug :D): 1) What is the menu entry "MIDI / Local off" good for? It does not show any effect. 2) Is there a feature like "MIDI monitor follows selected track"? This is what Cubase 2.x did in 1990 and I'm really missing this convenient feature. Disable he...

Re: Unubtu20.04 /linux-image-5.x-lowlatency, useful or not?

OK, installed linux-lowlatency and got kernel 5.4.0-40-lowlatency which boots without issues. Tested ~15 minutes playing a 1-bar loop in MusE with MDA-ePinao and 2 LV2 effects, Calf chorus and plate reverb; not actually challenging. Result: 1 XRUN after ~5 minutes - no change, as expected. Probably ...

Re: Unubtu20.04 /linux-image-5.x-lowlatency, useful or not?

First of all, xruns are not to be taken this seriously except if you record/overdub. Yep, I do record and the blips are in the recording too! Not so often, not really a showstopper. The lowlatency kernel will help you getting lower latency if you want to. Nope, "lowlatency" at kernel level should r...

Unubtu20.04 /linux-image-5.x-lowlatency, useful or not?

With JACKD I had a lot of XRUNs, but I managed to eliminate most of them with the tweaks I found in the web: - Plug USB interface to different USB of PC - disable some BIOS features - uninstall Linux daemons useless for audio - disable all vulnerability mitigations (kernel command line mitigations=o...

Re: Using amidi to send SYSEX to old synthetizers

I used amidi to reanimate my old M1 too and there was no tricky option necessary to achieve this: - Dig into the M1's system settings and enable reception of SYSEX. - Send the original SYSEX file from the KORG web page to your MIDI interface (M1preld.syx from 1996-08-20, md5sum=9176180e0d328e33c5a85...

Re: Advice for a beginner, looking to have a go at recording.

Proposed you stick to Linux, I see 3 basic directions: (1) You are not a Linux insider and just need something to work with. You do not want so spend any money. Use Ubuntu Studio or AVlinux and accept whatever you encounter there; probably Ardour or Qtractor. Accept slightly outdated software and do...

Re: Wave track or group track to catch direct outputs of synth?

Thanks for this detailed explanations; this would be worth a paragraph in the Wiki too. My conclusion is that a group tracks should be used to add effects to the discrete outputs of a multi-synth. Recording the dry synth outputs to a wave track is next to useless and the group track consumes less re...
