Re: KPP 1.2, tubeAmp Designer 1.2, spiceAmp 1.0 Released!

That's great! Thanks a lot.

What's the best way to create a new profile? Is simulating a circuit with splice the best option?

Re: Let's talk notation, hacker style!

The question I have at the moment is how do we go about it with kids? My daughter has started playing the violin. She'll eventually have to learn traditional classical notation. If I introduce her to another type, is it a good move or just another useless attempt to be different? Do you need to lear...

Re: Tring to understand low latency. Is latency fixed?

I'd like to add, don't fret over latency except if you overdub something or play something where you need live ITB monitoring (hardware monitoring usually doesn't cause latency). Many think it's a kind of benchmark how good their system is. That's just not true. It's just faster with more risks. Aud...

Re: Let's talk notation, hacker style!

Hey there, First of all thanks a lot for talking about this. It just opened a new world of possibilities. I'm a classically trained violinist, so sight reading music notation isn't a problem for me. I see your point about trying to improve upon the traditional system. I really like the 6+6 paradigm ...

Re: Getting started with music

Hey there and welcome.

You seem to have a solid hardware and software basis to really live your music.
I like that you commit to the Linux audio modular way with non-sequencer and luppp. I find it quite rewarding to craft once own perfect setup.

Keep us tuned

Re: DRM-free music streaming - is it possible?

Well there is bandcamp. You stream as much as you want and if you want to, you buy the music.
No DRM.

And they are a nice bunch of people

Re: CALF Audio plug-in

Hey there, There might be some confusion about how you use which software. Audacity is a destructive audio editor. Calf plugins are not designed for this but for digital audio workstation. Ardour allows you to work on multiple files with as many or as few channels as you want. Just patch the plugins...

Re: recording EQ, compressors, etc plugins

Well from everywhere I read they always say try to make the source as clean and usable as possible. Even if I plug my pedal amplifier into alive system before the product is delivered the engineer will clean it up. Everywhere I read they Shake that tracking is clean as possible so less work when it...

Re: recording EQ, compressors, etc plugins

If you're monitoring both your input and the software, it's normal that it's phasey. I like to commit to hardware before recording, but I really don't see the point of doing it with software. Still, if you want to do it, load a plugin host with some plugins and stick it before your signal goes into ...

Re: New M-Audio Air series looks promising

Why do knobs crackle? Cheap knobs have a carbon "pads" inside. With time, they wear and contact is not as good as when they are new. In order to solve this, you can rotate quickly your knobs a few times and it will clean itself, thus not crackling anymore. Or you just change the knob yourself. Most ...

Re: Hello

Welcome here Jade,

There are a lot of ways to release and share your music. YouTube is fine but also really generic. Maybe some dedicated audio sharing platform might be also a good place.

And keep on practicing :wink:

Re: Are There Any Audio Only Based Distributions?

Video programs will not slow down your system. They are just "doing nothing" except taking up disk space. If you really want to optimize your system, check which desktop environment fits the best. Optimize your kernel Uninstalling useless software is always a good idea, but I don't see how a non-run...

Re: No sound audible

It's "just" a monitoring problem. It seems your setup is working fine, but you can't monitor your incoming signal. It's actually a "good" thing as you won't have feedback. Dedicated audio interfaces usually have a knob for this. Or you can do it on the software side using jack and connecting your in...

Re: Looking for DAW with strong notation editor on any OS.

How about exporting your midi files and convert them to lilypond format using midi2ly http://lilypond.org/doc/v2.19/Documentation/usage/invoking-midi2ly.ca.html ? Of course, some knowledge of lilypond is necessary and it might not fit your workflow but it might be an entirely *free** way of doing it.
