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 ...

No. The singer can't stay in tune.

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...

Re: a plugin version of Kawai K1 now has linux version

However, I think it really isn't much more than just a sample player. The samples can be stacked (four of them), the ADSR curves can be edited and modulated a bit. I wish you could import samples yourself, so it'd work as a no-nonsense player for your own samples too. The K1 (and K4 after it) hail ...

Re: Installing a Liquorix Kernel

I've been recording vocals in Ardour this afternoon with Liquorix enabled, 26 layers of voices, with active reverb and compressors on various tracks, and have had no xruns. But I notice a similar thing with DSP and CPU load. Compared to the lowlatency kernel, Liquorix uses about 1-2% more DSP load....

Re: a plugin version of Kawai K1 now has linux version

It's very good for what it is. I guess something like this was missing from Linux. Despite the "late-80s" association, I think the sound should work well with contemporary music too. However, I think it really isn't much more than just a sample player. The samples can be stacked (four of them), the ...

Re: Anyone used a Yamaha MG10XU usb class 2 compliant mixer?

I have this mixer. I mainly bought it for small live performances. It has built in compressors on two channels and an FX processor that's very good for the price (if you happen to like the Yamaha reverbs - I do!). The mic preamps also seem to be good enough to drive quiet mics like the Shure SM7B, w...

Re: Your Thoughts on EQs

Unfortunately, if you are used to Mixbus having a mixer without the built in EQ, compression and high pass is quite jarring. didn't understand this part When you get used to having a mixer with the essential mix tools to hand, using another DAWs mixer, reaching for them and finding they are not the...

Re: Airwindows Discussion

For a more obvious effect I recommend trying out BussColors4 - 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 just have to have an idea what musicians / recording enthusiasts would want to use them for. ...

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.

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