Re: Can't find (some) Windows VST in Carla

Nevermind, I tried to use the 32 bit versions of the plugins and they are correctly scanned and working.

Are 64 bit VST plugin working with Carla?

Can't find (some) Windows VST in Carla

Hi. I have a working KStudio / Carla setup. I've been able to scan and use some Win VST by putting tthen in my /home .vst folder. so far so good. I then wanted to try out the well known LePou plugins, but they do not appear in the plugin list of Carla after the rescan. This happens whether I put the...

Re: Lots of Xruns with Carla

The instructions on the wiki regarding cpufreq-set seem not to be up to date. The correnc command should be cpufreq-set -c 0 -g performance where 0 is the index of your processors (in my case I have to issue the command 4 times from 0 to 3) After doing that the script teports the correct situation t...

Re: Lots of Xruns with Carla

Can you post the output of e.g. cat /etc/security/limits.d/audio.conf please? That's a folder which is for instance made by kx studio. I would kxsudio make all the settings. Doing it by hand can potentially collide with settings kx studio is doing for you. sure, here it is. $ cat /etc/security/limi...

Re: Lots of Xruns with Carla

That's strange, because the kx studio default setting package should do all these things for you. @ others: That's right, isn't it? You don't need the low latency kernel at the moment, that's one of the last things if you still need better performance. Stupid question, but after adding the KX repo ...

Re: Lots of Xruns with Carla

I have that package (and all others I could install from kstudio PPA) installed. Is there a script or tool I should run? I think there's a lowlatency kernel available somewhere in the package manager to install. Could I just install it? Would it help? And in case, is it tricky to do it and/or are th...

Lots of Xruns with Carla

Hi. I got back to kstudio and Linux music after a long time. I installed kstudio software from ppa over kubuntu LTS. My soundcard is an USB Scarlett 2i2. I was then experimenting with reaper for Linux and some vst on Carla. Namely RandArp (win vst) and talk noisemaker. The objective was to make some...

Re: Best current Ubuntu for KXStudio

I would say Neon, it means you'll get up to date plasma but base of 18.04 LTS. I wouldn't bother with 19 unless you really have to. Unless there's a particular feature you really really need, I agree on sticking with 18.04, any flavor. It's a solid base and LTS. The only exception would be Ubuntu S...

Best current Ubuntu for KXStudio

Hi all. I just recently managed to fix some broken hardware issues with my desktop PC and wanted to rebuild it from scratch. I wanted to start with an Ubuntu distro, possibly with KDE, but avoiding derivatives like Mint. The latest is 19.04. Is installing KXStudio via PPAs the best way to do it? Sho...

Re: Ubuntu Studio or KUbuntu for PPA installation?

I like to have the bleeding edge distro, if I can, on my primary computer, but as a last resort I gues I can settle with that. Or Kubuntu 18.04 for that matter. Why not go for Neon? It is now based on ubuntu 18.04 so you have the LTS part but the KDE aspects are updated to near bleeding edge (they ...

Re: Ubuntu Studio or KUbuntu for PPA installation?

Mint is basically ubuntu 18.04 with a cinnamon desktop Thanks I like to have the bleeding edge distro, if I can, on my primary computer, but as a last resort I gues I can settle with that. Or Kubuntu 18.04 for that matter. 18.04 is a long time support release if I'm not wrong so it would not lag to...

Re: Ubuntu Studio or KUbuntu for PPA installation?

Oh, I seemed to pick up that there was at least a beta out. Anyway. My bet is that 18.04 is much better supported because falktx is working on releasing the iso. Personally I just use the repos because I don't care about KDE. I use Mint + kxstudio repos btw. I haven't read all the posts in the topi...
