Re: Open source Gross Beat alternative

The Gross Beat plugin for FL Studio is used on a lot of tracks. I've never heard of it, so that makes it hard to suggest an alternative without further description :D I know Paulstretch can do many of the same things but I don't know if it can be considered a replacement. Can you even use it as a L...

Re: Mixbus and mixbus 32 c free update version 5.2.130

Looks like a nice packed release!

(while it is clearly also 'news', 'marketplace' is more specific so more suitable - moved the topic)

Re: Chipdisco - dual-deck DJ app for tracker modules

Thanks for keeping us posted on this! Chipdisco indeed looks pretty cool, but the mono limitation (if I'm reading the README correctly, to work around some Apple API limitations?) is indeed a pretty big one.

Re: Linux Digital Audio and Music Workstation Comparison Matrix

This argument goes 2 ways, of course. People who steer every conversation towards their favorite rant topic in real life are obnoxious as well. And since you can avoid such people in real life but not so much on forums like these, I would argue it is even more bad form online. In forum world you ca...

Re: Linux Digital Audio and Music Workstation Comparison Matrix

And what makes a forum any different than real life? When it comes to good manners, do you always feel so "entitled" to jump into a group and tell them to talk about what YOU want to talk about when the conversation evolves into something you're just not interested in? Probably not..... i...

Re: Is anyone using qLoud - or know a better Speaker profiler?

The latest is "v.1.2 - make building more friendly for Ubuntu " at https://www.linux-apps.com/p/1130986/ Thanks! The website mentions development moved to https://github.com/molke-productions/qloud - that seems to have some more recent changes than compared to 1.2. If you have any trouble...

Re: Github Microsoft/calculator README.md

I consider myself a Free Software and Open Source supporter, and if you are so openly hostile to me, this makes me wonder how I should treat you. The idea it that they wanted to market "free software" to businesses This is fairly accurate: Open Source was coined for situations where the m...

I like how the F-Droid appstore for Android not only just contains Open Source apps, but also marks any apps that contain 'Anti-Features' so as a user you are aware and can make your own choice

I've written about this: https://lyberta.net/articles/tech/free_sw_untrusted.html Interesting article. I completely agree just slapping a Free/Open license on software doesn't automatically make it trusted - but at least you have some chance to start trusting it. You mention the "event-stream&...

Re: Open Source, Communities, and the Incoming New EU Copyrights Regulations

the EU is really letting me down. I am disappointed beyond any reasonable limit by this whole Article 13 madness. I agree wholeheartedly. While intended to protect content creators, both article 11 and article 13 will make it almost impossible for smaller platforms to exist online - inevitably lead...

Re: Essential information for new users

I realize I'm quoting a fairly old message, but it looks like I'm having the same issue: I've written around 4 between posts and replies by now, and I'm still being told they're going to be moderated.

Re: Are there any big artists that use FOSS software?

Re: cyclictest

It's CPU1 (the green line) that's letting the side down. :) The other three CPUs have a really good maximum latency -- around 50 microseconds. That's 0.05 milliseconds. It's interesting that CPU1 is so much worse than the others. Makes you wonder if there's anything tied to CPU1. If there's somethi...
