Re: [MUSEIC] Maschinen Aesthetik (Kraftwerk tribute)

Thank you for your kind offering, but I don't think examining those files would help me; I guess it's just a matter of me practicing changing parameters and trying things until I get an ear for it... At least I don't have to build my own instruments like the Kraftwerk guys did... :lol:

Re: [MUSEIC] Maschinen Aesthetik (Kraftwerk tribute)

I'm curious about how you got to replicate Kraftwerk's sound so accurately; did you use soundfonts, or tweaked synth parameters until you found similar sounds? I'm starting to toy around with synths and it always take me a very long time to "sculpt" the sound into something usable. Any tips for a ne...

Excellent song + video! It's like "Musik Non Stop Part 2"... Very well caught the vibe... :lol:

Re: Make humanization of drums by hand or leave it to DrumGizmo?

Yeah, my finger drumming isn't great either, but I really prefer to play something rather than using the midi grid. With Reaper it is crazy easy to slow down the song if you need to, and also I usually record in several passes: the first one just with keys z and x for kick and snare (maybe doing the...

Re: Make humanization of drums by hand or leave it to DrumGizmo?

I use Reaper too, and lately I've been trying the opposite approach: as I have less and less patience to program drums (all that click click is perhaps alright for someone who does techno, but for a rock track it feels all wrong to me), now I record the drums live, doing "finger drumming", which ens...

Re: Hello everyone!

Welcome and thank you for offering the quid-pro-quo (I'm certainly more musician than Linux, but Linux is, by far, the least annoying of the 3 OS for my taste). To add to the database, the Focusrite Scarlett is a big favorite, from what I've read. I don't have one because when I was in the market fo...

Re: Thank-a-developer day

We don't like being forced to interact with animate objects. Funny, when I first saw this thread that's what came to my mind first. Of course I feel very grateful for all the great software, but I kinda picture most of developers as guys who see programming as sort of "solving complex sudokus", som...

Re: VST3 support in Linux?

OK, got it, my mistake was that I didn't know there existed native VSTs for Linux too. I just assumed "VST means Windows, and the way to run it on Linux is through LinVST" (which I've done successfully often with VST 2; LinVST converts .dll to .so, and you're ready to go). The Izotope plugin I tried...

Re: VST3 support in Linux?

Native Reaper in Linux support VST3, you can check this with U-he, Surge or recent Auburn plugins Could you please elaborate on how you do that? I use Native Reaper, and recently tried to use Izotope RX 7 Decrackler. I didn't know about the version 2-3 divide, so I tried to run it through LinVST as...

Re: is Hydrogen better than Ardour for drums

I can't help but mention another option, I don't know if very popular but just to put it on the table... I used to have this kind of problems. Ardour (version 4 I think), and later Qtractor's Midi editor were both highly unstable, lacking basic functionality like reliable copy-paste (!) and sometime...

Re: Getting "cannot allocate memory" error, although running in real time

any idea of what they could mean? They all happen within a second, so I think this is simply part of the process of shutting down JACK. Nothing to worry about. :) Yup, I've been using my system some more these days and it's rock solid (I'm able to record midi drums LIVE for the first time ever!), s...

In the case of Ubuntu Studio 19, didn't have to install it, it came with it already.

Re: Getting "cannot allocate memory" error, although running in real time

Success! Thank you so much merlyn, the jack_control command finally did the trick: good bye to the cannot allocate error, for all qjackctl configurations, and even after rebooting. There's a peculiar side effect, though. Things go well during the session (although I still have to test further), but ...

Re: Getting "cannot allocate memory" error, although running in real time

Thank you for all the answers. This error is not really critical, my system is quite stable now, but I wanted to "iron out" the problem just in case it could influence others... So I think by the moment I'm going to live with it and wait until Ubuntu updates systemd (or better said, until Ubuntu upd...

Re: Getting "cannot allocate memory" error, although running in real time

Thank you so much to both of you for your suggestions... @Linuxmusician01: I've tried the command you provide and, on the positive side, the output shows no "lockdown" message. I opened a project in Reaper and it seemed to work and be very stable. However, it seems to have a very high latency (~0.5 ...
