Re: Audio Interface for Drum Recording

I own a Presonus 1818VSL, it's quite good and works perfectly with Linux (any distro). I'm not sure how it compares with the Focusrite, it's a bit cheaper though. If you stick with 8 channels, I wouldn't bother with two room mics, especially for death metal. Maybe one, if you really like that kind o...

Re: Noise reduction plugins?

Aeons ago I used Gnome Wave Cleaner . It's much better than Audacity, but it got old and I don't think it's actively developed anymore. I'm not even sure it still compiles on my Gentoo, but there should be a Debian package (look for "gwc"). It's not a plug-in, though, but a stand-alone pro...

Re: Advice on All Fifths Tuning for guitar manual

Just a side-note that may be of interest: Robert Fripp and Trey Gunn (if don't know who they are, fix that NOW!) use the "new standard tuning" which is a tuning by fifths with the highest two strings tuned by a minor third (to mitigate the problem of having the highest string too fragile).

Re: Laptop without wifi / USB conflict?

I think this kind of info is incredibly hard to find reliably, I sometimes read of small differences from build to build of the same laptop model (some components not being exactly the same etc.). The first suggestion given here is "disable wireless internet" - and doesn't even mention con...

Re: Ardour 5

Regarding running a business based on free software, I think this not-so-old post is highly relevant: Ardour and Money, 2014 edition . So, if Ardour found a way to have an even more fruitful collaboration with Harrison via the demo plug-ins, well, that's good news for all of us. And about the guaran...

Re: How to make JACK work with laptop suspend?

I use the ALSA JACK plugin (not the loop device) (http://jackaudio.org/faq/routing_alsa.html) and it works perfectly after a suspend.

Re: Backing up my data.. program suggestions?

/source/* /target/ => copies everything inside /source into /target/ BUT --delete-before will not work. Also, it won't copy hidden files/directories (those starting with "."), not good for $HOME… Anyway, another vote for rsync here. Here's what I use for my backups: rsync -uFaxhiP --stats...

Re: EBU R128 compressor plugin?

The LUFS measure is not actually that complicated: it's a couple of 2nd order filters (a shelf and a high-pass), a fixed gate, a windowing gate, and then an RMS measure on the sum of the channels. The specs are in this document . Your idea should be easily implementable (but I'm not a programmer so ...

Re: [SOLVED] problems with 1818vsl

I now have a usb3.0 external HDD. disabling xhci across the system prevents me from being able to utilize the superior speeds enabled by usb3.0 so i was wondering if anyone has found a way to force linux to load the ehci driver when the 1818vsl is connected. I'm in the same situation, and I tried s...

Re: I regret updating to Debian Testing

I've seen that before, those people must be crazy to allow their system to break like that... Oh, I'm one of them, . . I 've been another one for years, until I switched to Funtoo (so, even crazier, I suppose). My experience is that Debian Unstable is far more usable than Debian Testing. In Testing...

Re: Ultimate Subtleness: Ultimate Confidence Boost in Mixing

So, by Graham's logic, 1dB times 40 tracks (and in 40 different ways) = 40dB increase? Or even a 40dB decrease? No, your conclusion is completely wrong (go read about the math that's behind dBs ). What he's saying is that applying a change on a bus is the same as applying that change on every singl...
