Re: JACK / piano setting

thank you varpa, I've tried once Ardour without luck so I'll try it again with fresh eyes later. Harry_Krishnerd: thank you, I've surprisingly managed to record the piano :-) it was at night so I hope I'll be skilled enough to do it again :lol: I've read the entire section on Notation and haven't fo...

JACK / piano setting

Hi, I have a digital Yamaha P-95 and a USB/midi cable but so far I haven't had enough luck to set things up right to capture the keys that I'm playing. I know the cable is OK (once a small app worked but its purpose was different). I've learned here, that I need Jack to make it work, however, my tri...

Re: simple software for digital piano recording

Thank you guys! You could get around this by using a fade in Audacity before the noise becomes audible. You can probably see the noise in Audacity. And there is some background hissing (you can hear it at the end, while the final chord is fading out), but I wouldn't worry about it, it's pretty norma...

Anyways, here FLAC, 16 bit, 8 (the best) quality...

Re: simple software for digital piano recording

I see! That brings up another important factor.... - what format would be the best to use? Audacity offers also some aiff (I don't have a foggiest idea what that is...). However, I guess that FLAC is the best format to avoid losing quality..? - from what I've heard.. I could use some insights on tha...

Re: simple software for digital piano recording

I see,
I guess it's also in the audio itself (it's too noisy here at the moment, I can't hear anything :-D, not even my own words )

Re: simple software for digital piano recording

fade out of the last chord That fade out is actually played by my own hands :wink: There is absolutely no editing in terms of sound. It's exported as MP3 with 320kb/s (https://ctrlv.cz/GcUB) - I'm not entirely sure what the best setting is either :roll: I used this online converter to make a video ...

Re: simple software for digital piano recording

poor compression isn't unlikely... since I have to make into a video via a convertor :oops: There is also the matter of 'boosting' the signal in alsamixer and sound volume on the piano :roll: I'm still experimenting. And also the Grand Piano sound sounds a little bit messier. I haven't decided which...

Re: simple software for digital piano recording

You can use Linthesia I've tried it, and it doesn't work properly... to open it, I need a midi file, well I have one but I cannot play anything, it doesn't do anything with my piano (and it is well connected because VMPK is working). I doubt I'll get it up and running. Their website is dormant and ...

Re: simple software for digital piano recording

Nice, we got to cars :D I drive a stick :lol: Anyway, thank you guys for all your input, I will look into Jack audio later ;-) I remember installing it a few years ago and I wasn't sure what it was good for. Now, I don't even remember why I did that. Here is a thought, though, I bet you know these f...

Re: simple software for digital piano recording

Additional question :-) Since you obviously have superior knowledge of this matter here 8) could you please give me some tips, how to set Audacity to actually record the best I can via the line out cable in mic line in? (music-wise, not skill-wise :-D) I've been trying to figure out what's the best ...

Re: simple software for digital piano recording

wow, thank you guys! Although it's all Greek to me, I've made of it quite a lot :-) A digital piano typically sounds much better than a computer because some very skilled people carefully tried to make the piano sound as good as possible. So, if you use the MIDI cable, you throw away those carefully...

simple software for digital piano recording

Hi everyone, I'm quite surprised that this forum has been hiding from me for such a long time :shock: . I have a digital Yamaha P-95. I found a workaround how to record the music (Audiocity and headphone line out cable), however, people kept telling me that the quality can't be good (I have no frame...
