Re: Windows VST PlugIns for a use in GNU/Linux?

Good that the VST issue got solved. I like beside Guitarix the Ignite Labs Emissary Amp sim. It's modelled after a Randall Satan and is best suited for harsher tones. The site wants the user to register in order to get access to the software. Just mentioning, because not everyone is down with that. ...

Very cool. I like this software a lot. Sounds pretty good to me haven't come across any bugs so far.

Re: Help me get back to a functional DAW (Xruns Galore)

On my rig turning off wifi and changing the audio usb interface to another usb port made those pesky xruns go away.

Re: jack shows scarlett 2i2 but not in any DAW

Had a similar problem with the internal audio chose over the usb audio. Prevented the module to load in /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf made an entry with blacklist snd_hda_intel at the end of the file. inxi -A Audio: Device-1: AMD Raven/Raven2/Fenghuang HDMI/DP Audio driver: N/A Device-2: Focusrite-...

Re: M-Audio Keystation 49 MK3 Controls in Reaper

Thanks a ton! That works and is actually a way better method and works for other devices even non-midi ones as well. Didn't occurred to me to do it like that. Actually I found out why the Mackie Controls didn't work. The keyboard is installed as two devices MIDI 1 and 2. MIDI 1 must only be the inpu...

M-Audio Keystation 49 MK3 Controls in Reaper

For some reason I can't get the transport buttons working in Reaper again. I connected another midi device and that screwed things up in various ways. I hate this shit, but have to deal with it for now. From memory I set the Input of Mackie Control to Keystation49 MIDI 2 and output to none. That is ...

Re: How to use Carla and Windows VST Plugins?

One more thing: in winecfg under Drives, just make sure "Letter Z: Target folder / " is there together with the C: drive, because that where Carla loads the Windows plugin host with wine.

Re: How to use Carla and Windows VST Plugins?

Carla hosts native Windows plugins and all the other types. Plugins converted with Linvst can be used natively without wine. I have one folder in the WINE folder for the DLLs where everything is installed and point carla to it in the settings. Maybe start carla from shell and see if it complains abo...

Re: How to use Carla and Windows VST Plugins?

You need a few things installed beside carla and WINE like the bridges for Windows VST (carla-bridge-win32, carla-bridge-win64) Check the ubuntu studio ppa or for the latest carla-git kx studio ppa, don't mix both or be very carful if you do so, because they hold some of the same software and may co...

Re: Ubuntu Studio AND KXStudio simultaneously

I use both, but had dependency issues because of duplicate software in both repositories and Ubuntu's own. A receipt for disaster.
Should be ok for the plugins, which there are many. Just be reeeaally careful what gets installed. :mrgreen:

Re: Unubtu20.04 /linux-image-5.x-lowlatency, useful or not?

Great it worked out for you. I used this script (perl)to diagnose what tweaks are needed : https://github.com/raboof/realtimeconfigquickscan The Ubuntu Studio repository has a useful package (ubuntustudio-performance-tweaks) for this. I still had xruns after doing everything and it turned out that t...

Re: New to ubuntu studio, need some guidance

I disabled the onboard device in /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf. Added "blacklist snd_hda_intel" to prevent loading the driver. Now the USB interface is chosen as the default. The file blacklist.conf exists on Ubuntu, on Solus it had to be created.

Re: Has anyone used the KORG Collection 2 on Linux?

Same here. The Korg Collection 2 didn't work last time I checked. The copy protection probably doesn't like wine or vice versa.
The Korg Legacy 1 Collection works however like a charm.

Re: STL Emissary Amp won't show UI anymore

Turns out Emissary and some other plugins are all working now after I run them from a clean wine prefix. I must have installed something, that broke the UI. Using 5.10 devel. Stagging doesn't work currently for me for some reason. First time actually everything works. Even Izotope Ozone works. Good ...

Re: STL Emissary Amp won't show UI anymore

Thanks for the answer. I installed a few components from your list like gdiplus, but no cigar. But an older Wine version (5.6 staging) worked.
