Re: [ANN] LSP Plugins 1.0.24 release is available

I still experience the laggy graphics with renoise 3.1 on xubuntu 16.04. For example the steren (non sc) limiter at first seems ok, but as soon as audio runs through the graphics get choppy, and the gui becomes very laggy in response. All plugins are affected, but it seems like the more realtime gra...

Re: LSP plugins and Bitwig 2.0

Hello! First: thanks for making these great plugins available. They definately fill a gap in the free linux plugin world. I'm particularly excited about the dynamics plugins. Just wanted to chime in about the unresponsive/freezy gui problems. I'm experiencing the same on xubuntu 16.04 running renois...

"best" way to feed dry elec-guitar into pc...

Hi there! I'm just asking about your opinions on this. I like to play my guitar very much, and nothing beats having a real amp in front of you for feeling & harmonic feedbacks etc. and then mic it, but I'd sooner or later like to experiment with things like guitarix/gx_head as an alternative, expeci...

Re: What language would you recommend me to start diving into?

yep, look into c/c++. long way to go for a selftaught, but possible. performance (critical for realtime audio) is unmatched, when you know what you're doing. well, only by assembly-language, coded by someone who _really_ knows what he's doing. but, if you are very new to programming, maybe try to wo...

Re: Syncing multifaces in jack1

sorry, I might have sounded a bit too enthusiastically above. of course I don't have 2 rme's sitting around here to check it out myself, and didn't properly disconnect my computer from the internet before looking too deep into a bottle of wine - I just wanted to point out it'd be better to try a joi...

Re: Syncing multifaces in jack1

just one sidenote, with a complete "imHo" mark... alsa_in and alsa_out do resample the added devices afaik...so does jack2's audioadapter...the whole point of doing that is that unsynced soundcards drift, and need to be matched on time axis to be in "artificial" virtual sync. quality is lost in resa...

Re: Convert any file to music

try what I suggested above: install some good sample editor (mhwaveedit does this well), and open the file (yes, the .jpg!) with it, trying different configurations as for how to interpret the input data, until you find the settings that sound like the "cat" command to dev/dsp. then you can edit (eq...

sorry, not soon, but...err...put "the file" onto usb-sticks tied with rubberbands to one end of somekind of rod (somekind of "stick" of 1 meter length that isn't too uncomfortable to hold with the hands at the other end should be fine). open a piano, put a heavy rock onto the sustain-pedal, and whip...

Re: Convert any file to music

yay, not only lyrics, you can "hide" any data this way in you tune if you're clever enough to manage making the process reversible - in the 60's they'd play speech backwards, this hidden messages of the digital age ;) the kind it sound reminds me of another case of transdata usage in music: aphex tw...

Re: Convert any file to music

reminds me of old fast-tracker-][...as it needed the feature to open raw audio files, like used by amigas (those guys needed no fileheader or file extension, they knew the file would be a sample by themselves :P), you could open any arbitrary file as sample & work with it (it gets loaded as 8bit by ...

Re: Ripping samples from tracker modules

well, why don't you just save the sample directly from milkytracker? I guess you're loosing quality in the playback->resampling->output->capture chain, not beautiful, and you'll need to cut the samps etc... it'd still be quite some work, but it will give you an 1:1 .wav dump of the sample! I think y...

Re: two maudio 2496 with jack2

I have no experience on this, but look here: http://alsa.opensrc.org/index.php/TwoCardsAsOne for .asoundrc/asound.conf setup. I think I remember that you've got to set up the "slave" card (the one, that has its s/pdif input connected with the s/pdif output of the other one) as s/pdif in for "master ...

Re: Sound quality puzzle/problem

strange indeed! the soundcard should playback the same quality as it records from line-in... are you playbacking the amplug directly to the speakers (speaker plug to the amplug), or are you routing through the line-in (or even worse: mic-input, that'd kill any quality for any signal) of the computer...

Re: Jack, alsa, m-audio 2496 and weird number of channels

actually, if you use envy24control (or alsa mixer with patience), you can use the extra output channels for (hardware...?) mixing (I don't know why one'd like to, but...yeah). normally, in Patchbay/Router, outputs are set to "PCM Out 1/2". try setting them to "Digital Mix L/R". now you can use outpu...
