Re: LinuxMusicians' libre plugin picks, 2020 edition

Ok, I'll play. People have been shy so far. My own problem is that I haven't thoroughly tested many of the new ones, as I've been mostly using the old favourites, some freeware and paid stuff. I included three freeware plugins in parentheses, as the best FOSS alternatives have been so buggy. Guitari...

I just use jack_capture on a terminal emulator.

Re: computer hardware & audio interface choices

Hi, Many thanks WforWoollyMammoth, that's a very useful input. I'll dig more but it probably means I need to reassess my views for practicing. (I haven't made a measurement, but reaper does not give me a worse latency than what you wrote with my USB 1.1 Toneport…) I can definitely hear what you say...

Re: Bitwig Studio - Frustrated by (lack of) Inter-App Routing

Thank you. Somehow I had just failed to notice the hardware I/O appearing in the patchage / catia window all this time and had been wondering what the -e option really does. Of course, in addition to the man page, google also gave me the same explanation.

Re: Guitar amps and effects suite.

You're probably thinking of Audio Assault: https://audio-assault.com/ They had Black Friday offers, but they seem to have some sort for a big sale going on 99% of the time. Those "slashed" prices they have their products with the "discounted" price next to them seem to be just a marketing gimmick, r...

Re: computer hardware & audio interface choices

I don't agree with the recommendations on USB audio interfaces for monitoring electric guitar direct on Linux. Admittedly, I have no experience of the few units that apparently have some sort of Linux drivers written for them, but with the generic USB audio interface driver (snd-usb-audio) there is ...

Re: Bitwig Studio - Frustrated by (lack of) Inter-App Routing

Bitwig uses ALSA midi, or am I missing something here? Just don't start JACK midi and Bitwig should work without any additional tinkering. Once you get used to Bitwig's modules and how they can be connected with each other, I don't think you're really going to miss the JACK environment that much. It...

Re: VST for playing sf2?

I missed Kott's second link, OpenSUSE packages are a format I know nothing about... It's just a compressed directory like .deb. You can extract the vst-binary with a decompression program. I couldn't get the .so file to load on a DAW on my 18.x Ubuntu system. I tried a few things, like renaming lib...

Re: your favourite guitar playing style ?

Jimi Hendrix, Eddie Hazel, Prince, Santana (in 60s) - etc. - my favourite playing style

I've also greatly enjoyed Gabor Szabo, a hungarian jazz guitarist that migrated to the US in the 60s (sort of like the Joe Zawinul of guitar, I guess), for a good while now.

Re: What music did your parents play in the car at home etc?

Phil Collins, Roxette, Elvis Presley, pan flute compilations and Turkish pop.

I can see where I got my great taste from. :?

Re: RME AIO

I've had my RME HDSPe AIO for a year now. I've also bought the 4x input expansion card. I bought the main card 2nd hand and the expansion B-stock. Both work flawlessly, as far as I can tell. I just wanted to write this here, as for some reason, there are plenty of posts on various forums that claim ...

Re: audio damage

I bought Continua, as I've enjoyed toying with the demo (if you like mid-period Autechre, you'll probably like Continua). Not sure how often I'll end up using it on projects. As noted earlier, it's heavy on the CPU. With a bunch of modulations applied it can easily use up twice as much JACK DSP as a...
