Re: Let's Cruise (surf)

Emulating a style is a super fun project, especially when you inevitably end up with something that includes your own personality. Very catchy and nice playing!

Re: What kind of musician am I?

...and then there was that silly dragonfly project that for months served as a huge distraction from actually making any music. Well, we are lucky for that distraction :) Seriously, that was a huge accomplishment on your part and I hope you have taken some pride and satisfaction in it. As for the r...

Re: Matching Equalizer

Looking forward to seeing what I can do with this one! A potentially cool feature would be a "reverse" button which would create an opposite profile. It might be a useful starting point for giving space in the mix to two similar sounds. I do that manually with EQ a lot if I am doubling gui...

Re: SCARLETT 3RD GEN just announced

With all due respect, but why would anyone want to own a product like that? Even if you don't use Linux. Hardware that requires special (proprietary) drivers and/or software to work is bound to become obsolete before it is "end of life cycle" for the user. I agree and I have shared that o...

Re: Rated Blue - Joy

This is a killer arrangement. That long intro with the crazed bass is sublime, then the big chords come in like BLAM. Stellar singing too--I know it's hard to hear ourselves objectively but that is a 100% solid rock vocal, no issues there. You pushed it pretty hard but it sounds great--my bluetooth ...

Re: ACM-2A Plug-In for Linux

Hello Mike, Works very fine. Very nice sound. This said, some questions: 1) What is the difference in principle between the ACM-2A and an OvertoneDSP PTC-2A ? 2) Well, what's the difference between Applied Computer Music Technologies and OvertoneDSP ? Same questions! Nice work on a modern look, alt...

Re: DiscoDSP's cloud

I understand the frustration with subscription models. When it's coming from a corporate parasite, it's an especially nasty way to keep customers hostage. But when it's a tiny shop who provides Linux plugins at reasonable prices? Sometimes I calculate in my head how much money I've saved in 13 years...

Re: is Hydrogen better than Ardour for drums

The problem is that we're between two worlds/ages, one where jack modularity was celebrated and one with a preference of doing things monolithically. Well said. There are a few other old tools like this that are stubborn. Bristol comes to mind. It's funny though, I can't think of anything more modu...

Re: is Hydrogen better than Ardour for drums

I share these frustrations with workflow. Hydrogen and Ardour are individually top notch, but I agree with op that syncing them is sub-optimal. I don't want to have an elaborate set-up to get a simple thing done. If Hydrogen would export MIDI, that would be nice. If it would work as a plugin in a DA...

Fair enough, and you certainly make it work (very) well. Would you really recommend that to a new Linux user though?

I think our community tends to forget how alien this world is to musicians who are not used to it

Re: Audio engineering on Linux

If you give us an example of something you do with Windows we could suggest how you would do that with Linux. For example: using Cubase to record a live performance, or using Wavelab to tidy up .wav files. OP, this would certainly help us direct you to what you need. I'm curious to know if there ar...
