Re: Optimizing Sforzando?

What method did you use to install Sfizz and where was the folder for the plugin located? Apt tells me it's installed, but I haven't been able to located where or get it running. Download the latest release from GitHub: https://github.com/sfztools/sfizz/releases/ It turns out I was wrong, there is ...

Re: Optimizing Sforzando?

There is also SFZero as a LinuxVST... but it doesn't support all opcodes Sforzando is a nice bit of software but it's VST Plugin has a long history of being cranky with Wine on Linux systems, lol it runs just well enough that you start having expectations but it doesn't quite seal the deal...

Re: Optimizing Sforzando?

I haven't used Sforzando, but a few years back I tried running some other windows vst2 plugins with a wine bridge. It kind of worked but was mostly a big headache, so these days I only run native Linux plugins. I'm wondering if a native plugin might work better for you. Three options are LinuxSampl...

Optimizing Sforzando?

I've gotten the Sforzando VST2 running pretty well in LMMS on Debian 10 using wine-staging 5.6. It took a bit to start the first time and seemed to hang, but after restarting LMMS it seems to be much better and I've installed Piano 162 on it with good-sounding results that have so far proven stable....

Re: Out of tune when using JACK

Good call, I didn't think of that. LMMS defaults to 44.1 kHz, but JACK was set for 48. Adjusted to 44.1 and playback sounds right.
Thank you both.

SOLVED - Out of tune when using JACK

I'm having an odd issue with JACK. If I use ALSA as the backend for LMMS, notes play at their expected values when I'm using MIDI input or simply playing back a recorded track within the DAW but if I use JACK, the pitch is sharp by roughly a half step + 50 cents. For example, if I'm using ALSA as th...

Re: WARNING: WINE Staging Updates (5.7) - Avoid!

@Mr. Lumbergh said: I reported the bug over at winehq.org so hopefully it gets resolved in 5.8. Can you post the link to the Bugzilla entry here? I didn't find it in a quick search. It's been rolled into another as a duplicate, apparently it already started popping up with games crashing: https://b...

Re: WARNING: WINE Staging Updates (5.7) - Avoid!

I appreciate the heads-up about 5.7 I think the odd-numbered releases are more experimental in nature. I think you should try the free linux Reaper demo with LinVst and wine-staging. If that does not work, then there is indeed a serious breakage. I wouldn't rely on lmms to determine such things acr...

WARNING: WINE Staging Updates (5.7) - Avoid!

All, just a heads-up if you're running WINE-staging for compatibility: the latest updates for Staging (5.7) have completely broken compatibility with all VSTs in Debian Stable; LMMS can no longer load them. I haven't had a chance yet to suss out what caused this, but I would avoid these updates for ...

Re: iZotope Product Portal installation fails

Damn, that's bad news, but thanks for the feedback. I was able to either get these either on a steep discount or free with the purchase of something else so not too much lost. I'll dig around on that particular error as I have time and let you know if anything changes.

iZotope Product Portal installation fails

Apologies if this has been discussed before; my search turned up some discussion about getting the USB dongle to work in 'Nix, but I didn't see anything about the issue I'm running into. When attempting to install iZotope Product Portal using wine, I get an error pop-up "Fatal Error in Installer" wi...

I'm gonna need you to go ahead and come in on Sunday, too.

Hello folks.

I've been a musician since orchestra in grade school. These past few years I'd been focusing on guitar and vocals, but recently started composing in LMMS and have been loving it. So far, this seems like an open and helpful place; happy to be here.
