Re: SOS I need a ROCK SOLID distro!

Hello, Happy new year to all. I don't understand this discussion. Use what you like, but most of all, make good music, that's needed :) About the ROCK SOLID distro, you mostly need a rock solid tweaking and rock solid flexibility in your approach to problem solving, regardless of the OS, s/w, h/w, e...

Re: The recomposition of Hey Jude by JOSEPH FERRANTE

my opinion on the Hey Jude cover: it sucks, I cannot bear the sound of it.

@raboof: yes, spam it is by the way.

Re: New LV2 Soft Synth: The Newtonator

I tried it, compiled fine and ran in zynjacku. Interesting concept ... but polyphony is not its strong point ;) But I may have a need for such a tool later on so thanks for sharing it!

Re: low latency audio questions

for audio playback only, low latency is totally irrelevant. However, you misunderstand what RT is: it is "100% deterministic process time of a given thread work". So, given this definition, you can very well have a process thread that takes a very long time to complete its work once the CP...

Re: Your wishlist for the future of hydrogen

if not yet implemented in the more recent versions, you could add "disk streaming" as a possible feature. I would then vote for it ;)

Re: BruteFIR and JACK at high priorities?

as far as I know, the i8042 makes no sense (keyboard controller chip). USB only makes sense if you have a USB soundcard I presume. My rtirq conf is quite straightforward: # IRQ thread service names # (space separated list, from higher to lower priority). RTIRQ_NAME_LIST="rtc hdsp" # Highes...

Re: KXStudio - Carla

there's also /proc/config.gz which is a compressed config file of the running kernel.
But as far as I know, the kernel needs to be compiled with the option to have a gz config in /proc ON.

Re: KXStudio - Carla

an alternative could be to parse the /boot/config-`uname -r` file if it exists (and it is quite standard in all linux distros). The thing about the kernel config is that it should have the same set of option defines (on or off depending) across linux installs.

Re: KXStudio - Carla

Your assumptions are wrong here, sorry. Cadence is written in python, so "uname -a" is actually "os.uname()", which splits into 4 strings for me. The 3rd string is the kernel number, which I use and parse. ah, you are doing this from python ... how about using the "platform...

Re: KXStudio - Carla

The kernel check is simply a parse of 'uname -a'. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. Kernel versions are displayed differently between distros, making my job harder... if you simply want to check the kernel version, use uname -r No need to parse all the noise that comes with -a. Another thin...

no need, I git-pulled and built again and things are running just fine ... except that LV2 plugins are still not detected. I thought you had enabled them (?)

Re: BruteFIR and JACK at high priorities?

Hello Oliver, The higher prios you want to set are actually way too high. jackd should not run higher than ~ 70 (even this value is maybe too high). If you are using an RT patched kernel or 2.6.39.x with threaded IRQs, you should prioritize your soundcard IRQs and the RTC IRQs as well (higher than s...
