Re: My list of too much gear.

All I'm saying is that we are a bit spoiled nowadays. And we're led to believe that producing is very easy if you would just learn how to use a computer/DAW. It's not. I for instance make a "click track" (yes: an audio track!) by recording the audio signal from the "sync out" of...

Re: My list of too much gear.

Fun gear list Digital Larry. I used to covet your Earthwood something fierce! That's a rare bird. I think there are a few of us here who are old-school with approach. The modern grid obsession is not my cup of tea, with everything perfectly tuned and time-aligned. I like songs and organic sounds and...

Re: My opinion about everything (TL;DR)

I've concluded that what I'm trying to do is not actively being pursued by SW vendors. Something like a Boss RC-505 or the Electro Harmonix 5 track looper are more in line, but I really do NOT want to buy hardware to solve this problem as they have their own set of constraints. DL, I've quite enjoy...

Re: Do you want more people to use Linux for music?

This thread is really interesting. I think most of the folks here are highly technically oriented individuals who are are curious about computers, and care deeply about software freedom. Many of the active users on the forum have created the projects that I use to make music with (I am extremely gra...

Re: GNU & Linux Songs

Nice list!

I couldn't find the excellent theme song to the OSMP of yore, but here are the stems.

Re: Looking for guidance in building a system to replace what I use with Windows.

Have a look at https://lsp-plug.in/ Plenty of dynamics plugins there. LSP for sure and also Calf . In the proprietary world, you can use Presswerk (which may be my favorite plugin of all time) as a limiter and some of Harrison's plugins will also help with mastering tasks. You'll need to jump in an...

Re: Need some help - Linux distros

I use Ubuntu Studio and like it. It's very good. Some people here experience conflicts if they also install kxstudio tools, but that is not a concern if you don't use kxstudio (something you certainly don't need if you are just starting out and your focus is Bitwig or Mixbus). Support ending in 2019...

Re: Looking for guidance in building a system to replace what I use with Windows.

Hey shag00, best of luck getting set up on Linux. For what it's worth, you may be able to find comparable linux-native plugins. If you can, then that avoids having to work with a bridge. You said a hard limiter, expander/gate, and voice loudness? I'm not sure about the last one, but I think the fir...

Re: from reddit.com/r/linux: A complete guide of and debunking of audio on Linux, ALSA and Pulse

Ogg tangent: Discovering Rockbox and realizing I could "fix" the many limitations of the iPod is how I came to Linux in 2005. Putting the Rockbox firmware on the Pod instantly made it 10x more powerful. It could be themed, play games, play more file formats, and be managed like any mounted...

Re: It doesn't pay to rush things

This is quite likable. I think the mic you used adds a lot of character and contrasts nicely with the synths.

Oddly enough I found it rather reminiscent of this ancient and obscure Wings track (in a good way).

Re: Not great news... AV Linux Forum shutting down September 1st

That's a hard thing to announce but it's always good to take something off our plates to make room for new/more important stuff.

I'm grateful for all you have done and do do for this wacky community and SPECIAL THANKS for keeping the golden manual alive!

Re: Intro (to the album I'll never publish!)

This is good stuff. You can really feel the energy build. You are going to have to make a really good song to follow this intro!

Yes, you should absolutely find a bass ;)
