Re: Airwindows Discussion

For a more obvious effect I recommend trying out BussColors4 and for a more subtle effect I recommend checking out Interstage. Most Airwindows plugins might seem too subtle for their own good, but I guess you'll just have have to have an idea what musicians / home recording enthusiasts would want to...

Re: Your Thoughts on EQs

I must have used LinuxDSP Black-EQ and Steve Harris DJ EQ (:lol:) the most over the years.

These days I appreciate a parametric EQ with a real-time spectrum analyzer running underneath the graphic representation of the curves. Pretty happy with Bitwig's stock EQ.

Re: Guitar sound always distorted.

What kind of an effect does toggling the hi-z button on the interface have?

Re: Patchbay and others like it.

Yes. I know what you mean by having to move things around with Patchage-like interfaces and it being annoying. I switched from Patchage to Catia recently, as I think it's just neater (Patchage also used to get started in a very small window on my LXDE / openbox -setup, which is not the case with Cat...

Re: Good compressor for mixbus

Definitely try U-he Presswerk. It's not cheap, but there's a demo that's fairly non-intrusive and allows you to get a good idea of what the plugin can do. I haven't really gotten along with Mixbus myself. I know what people mean when they say it introduces "air" in their mixes, but I always end up a...

Re: Audio assault plugins @ linux

FreakQ 305 has now a Linux version. Only tested in Bitwig so far, but seems to work. Has a nicer GUI, at least in my opinion.

I bought the WIN version when they were selling their plugins for next to nothing in December, so I was happy to see it getting released next on Linux.

Re: Please share your gnu/linux music production setup

However, I'm under the impression that the "hall" version of it is just zita reverb with a different early reflections algo? Correct if I'm wrong with that description. Dragonfly Hall can be considered a descendant of Zita with a few additional features that make quite a difference: * The chorus pa...

Re: Please share your gnu/linux music production setup

The reverbs available for Linux aren't that great though and I've used WINE for the reverbs so far =/ Have you tried Dragonfly Reverb? Here is a demo and review: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GnriLuJXTW0 Yes, I have. I sort of like it, but I should still subject it to more testing. However, I'm u...

Re: Please share your gnu/linux music production setup

Nice setup @WforWoollyMammoth I also have a Babyface Pro (among other RME soundcards) and I'm quite happy with it. Software monitoring works fine for me if I ever need to overdub. I don't agree with you about free audio software being subpar. Setting up the a-compressor from ardour is as easy as se...

Re: Please share your gnu/linux music production setup

I've finally managed to put together a system that I'm (fairly) happy about. Took me, uhm, almost a year to put it together. Computer hardware: AMD Ryzen 7 2700, MSI B450-A Pro, 16gb RAM, Noctua coolers (had to mention the coolers - silent, effective - highly recommended!), NVIDIA GT710 (pretty horr...

Re: Exhastive List of Free Native Linux Plugins

Traverso is a DAW that uses LV2 plugins. It's really not an "audio editor". Yeah, I know it's being referred to as an audio editor by the maintainer on his site currently, but I'm pretty sure that's just because it's been ridden with so many problems during its development that he doesn't want peopl...

Re: Any good Rhodes sfz, lv2, vst?

^^ The Learjeff Rhodes fonts are good. They are multisampled and have plenty of bite. A while ago, I listened to some of my old recordings. Some of them had the Learjeff soundfont on them, and some of them had a real mark I on them, and I actually preferred the recordings with the Learjeff used on t...

Re: Auburn Sounds , release free plugins on, VST and LV2

I'm having crashes with Panagement as well. Constantly, for that matter. It's crashed on Bitwig, Ardour, Harrison Mixbus and even when using it as a standalone effect with my keyboards with Carla. I've had X come to halt completely under LXDE and I've had to use ctrl+alt+Function key in order to esc...

Re: audio damage

I also got the Dubstation to run on Bitwig and using the standalone wrappers. Resizing works well, as does loading the presets. I initially thought the small "switches" weren't working, but you'll just have to press them and not try to "grab and drag" them sideways - or should that work too? I'll tr...
