Re: Linux instrument tuners

I used FMIT to tune before. A long time ago. As with most things jack, you have to do some routing to get it going. And back when I used it some tweaking on settings since my laptop was low end and nothing like what we have today. Description-en: Free Music Instrument Tuner FMIT is a graphical utili...

Re: Recording small wind band

A headphone preamp would suffice for multiple headphone outs from a single source. I have a presonus HP4 ($100-ish USD). 4x headphone outs and monitor pass-through. Although I mostly got it because it has a MUTE button for the monitor pass-through. And analog volume knobs, software volume control is...

Re: UR22mkII quirks?

Some of the quirks improved when I was able to setup the speakers sitting flat on a surface instead of stuffed on the shelves at an angle. But I got the focusrite 2i2 2nd gen just today and it's noticeably better. Maxed out the volume knob on the 2i2 and no distortions like the ur22mkII.

Re: Extreme delay from MIDI keyboard

Some of the midisport devices have firmware needs. You might be lacking. I've had similar issues with a midi drum kit. Although the midimon (not sure if it was kmidimon) showed that midi events from the device were delayed. That device having it's own effects, soundfonts, and such. I imagine that it...

Re: I can't get my MIDI controller recognized. Please Help.

jack_connect, not jack_control for my previous. Although mostly aconnect in the video. The jack_control is more of the jackdbus method to stop / start / exit. And the various other bits normally done on a single command with jack1, like select which card, rate, bits, channels, and whatnot.

Re: UR22mkII quirks?

So a different stereo amplifier (NAD C 316BEE), some NEW stereo wiring, and it's much better now. I do still need to -6dB with jack_mixer to keep things from sounding ODD. Lowering the media players volume (95%) also helps a bit. Otherwise finally happy-ish with the way things sound. The OLD pioneer...

Re: Stereo dictaphone/cheaper digital audio recorder?

I recently used a pocketchip ($70) and a webcam ($30) to record audio. Not that useful as it takes a while to get it recording. With quirks of jiggling the usb cord causing it to fail mid-recording. But it's possible for not much money.

Re: I can't get my MIDI controller recognized. Please Help.

qjackctl is a GUI app and needs X, so not headless. There's jack_control to do the routing on the command line, at least for jack1. Although not sure how you know the "names" of things without a gui and qjackctl. I made a youtube video years ago on midi the hardware with a lot of the cli o...

Re: How does one know if an audio interface will work on Linux?

If it's class compliant it should work. But as previously stated, perhaps not all of the bells and whistles. Just the basics. While usb 2 has been out a while, the audio "standard" for usb 2 came out like 8 years +/- 3 AFTER usb 2 was a thing. USB 1 was pretty limiting to like CD quality a...

Re: UR22mkII quirks?

I guess none of that is completely accurate. I tracked down a few issues with the speaker wires. Provided by the company that sold me the $1,500.00 speakers. And what I thought was clipping was the poorly connected right speaker. I still seem to need to lower the output for the best sound, but aroun...

Re: QJackctl freezes on stop with TASCAM US-122

I've had trouble with jackdbus on my RPi 3B+. After a recent update it has been freezing hourly. I have to kill -9 it to regain function without a reboot. The usual jack_control methods are non-functional until the kill. Although I just updated today with a new kernel, so here's hoping it's fixed no...

Re: Why is MIDI so broken in Linux?

rosegarden is more midi - centric. You'd need stuff like fluidsynth if you don't have midi output devices to generate the sounds that midi events trigger. Things like qsynth for the GUI front end to fluidsynth. Hyrdrogen and a few other options besides fluidsynth, like timidity. Some distros don't c...

Re: The new Raspberry PI 3B+ audio-related review

It seems that the june update makes jackdbus less stable. It's hanging pretty consistently on an hourly basis. It was pretty stable back in april, but I applied updates in july. Doing a fresh install didn't fix that quirk. It's really quite annoying, especially since I've put the audio portion on it...

Re: studio monitors

I had a pair of M-Audio Bx8's, which I got used from craigslist. They were good and really let me know just how much handling and wind noise I was recording. I sold them though, as 225W x2 plus computers and other things on one plug was an issue. Now I got mini maggies and a 150W stereo. Not that gr...

Re: The new Raspberry PI 3B+ audio-related review

I have a 3B+. I use it as a pulseaudio server to a usb interface. Currently the steinberg (yamaha) ur22mkII. It's a pulse over jackd setup. Unfortunately it's still not fast enough to do the calf 30 band eq plugin. It'll kind of do the 20 band one, but it gets unstable-ish in less than a day. I just...
