Re: B.Schaffl 1.4.0 - MIDI dynamics & vitalization

Interesting stuff. Many midi apps lacks (good) swing functionality, if this thing is working good, it might help in certain situations. Will surely check this out. I stumbled upon the swing functionality in Radium, it makes it possible for the user to finetune swing pretty detailed it seems. Maybe i...

Re: Pipewire called for testers. Anybody tried it out?

Latency Latency is nowhere near the latency that jack2 can handle. The reason is that the the alsa driver will send smaller packets to the device (USB) when configured with a smaller period. Because PipeWire uses timer based scheduling, the period is configured as large as possible and latency suff...

Re: Looking for versatile sampler plugin

I did test the demo of Renoise Redux to check how it works with Ableton Link. It seems to work (and sync) well in Carla, but in Ardour 6.5, I can't open the editor window

Re: [ANN] New Wavetable Synth: "Vital"

Fair point and I agree that the reputation of the developer is (very) good (Helm synth etc.). But still, someone with a good reputation can still make mistakes or something could take over (it's closed source, we can't check). He doesn't have a good eye for privacy issues it seems. Those problems co...

Re: [ANN] New Wavetable Synth: "Vital"

Strong part are the visuals probably. If you're starting with a synth, this might be a good one. Has quite some privacy concerns it seems. Is this the facebook-model? On the forum I can check someone's forum stats the times/hours he spend on forum), while I don't even have a account, strange. You ha...

Ableton Link on Linux using jack_link and Qtractor, PureData or SuperCollider

The goal is to help you find the resources needed to start fiddling with Ableton Link on Linux, to see what it is and what it can do. Apps that support Ableton Link natively (which is the best probably) are Carla, SuperCollider, PureData and Bitwig, probably more. Ableton Link is designed to jam tog...

Re: Ableton Link on Linux

Ableton Link on Linux

Ableton Link: seems to work with qmidiarp via jack_link. I synced it with supercollider. I think it's a interesting technique on the modular Linux platform. Ardour and Carla do have Link support afaik. howto: https://linuxmusicians.com/viewtopic.php?f=19&t=22430 https://media.ccc.de/v/lac2018-42-abl...

Re: Pipewire called for testers. Anybody tried it out?

Read the paper. There is a pipewire api. Pipewire will likely vanish Pulseaudio and JACK one day, they think.
There is enough to be fixed in JACK. Jack_transport has a major problem with looping for instance.

Re: Pipewire called for testers. Anybody tried it out?

The nice thing about JACK is that is specifically designed for Pro-Audio, whereas PipeWire is also for Desktop and at the end Desktop would be their most important target (lot's of people will use it on Desktop, report problems etc etc). Which could be a disadvantage for Pro-Audio. Maybe what we wan...

Re: Pipewire called for testers. Anybody tried it out?

Midi is not the strongest part of Ardour (other then recording Midi maybe), but the way you can edit midi in the same window is nice for workflow I think. So it might have the potential to go the same route as their audio part, which beats other DAWs. In Bitwig it is opening a other window I think f...

Re: Pipewire called for testers. Anybody tried it out?

Great to see how the PipeWire developers are responding to feedback from the LAD/LAU community. This process looks to be far better compared to the implementation of PulseAudio. There was almost no collaboration there. O my, we needed this 15 years ago.

Re: Pipewire called for testers. Anybody tried it out?

I haven't tried Bitwig yet, but from what I've seen reviewed it looks like the best DAW on Linux. That fine tuning of notes you can do is awesome. It's not as well embedded in the linuxaudio environment compared to Ardour. It has ALSA MIDI, which you have to get working via a kernel module and virt...

Re: Pipewire called for testers. Anybody tried it out?

IIRC Pipewire (PW) delivers also sample accurate MIDI (like JACK-MIDI). Not sure if the applications needs PipeWire API support. Any experience with MIDI and PW?

Here is the PW LAC talk paper:
