Re: Auld Lang Syne for Kite Guitar

Just to be clear: I'm saying that the 20th century compositions you describe are WEIRD in a way that will be forever weird, same with other microtonality. I'm saying that "unable to appreciate it" is not so fixed as you describe. I'm suggesting that conservative listeners *appreciate* well...

Re: Auld Lang Syne for Kite Guitar

Thanks for the reply and perspective. I assure you that this type of "out of tune" you are experiencing is simple familiarity. Like being in a place where cars drive on the left and you think "this is wrong!" If you listen again (a few more times perhaps), you'll hear that it doe...

Re: Auld Lang Syne for Kite Guitar

Thanks! The world of "microtonality" has a spectrum from weird-for-the-sake-of-weird to sounds-totally-normal-except-particulary-harmonious. There are those of us who sometimes want completely traditional music but noticed that you simply can't tune an A chord and a G chord by ear to both ...

Re: Auld Lang Syne for Kite Guitar

I didn't mention for some reason originally: the software I used in this was Guitarix, Ardour, and Kdenlive.

As stated in previous reply, Adagio for the purpose of hearing the tuning subtleties. It could be way slower even to really listen to how these chords are not the standard 12-edo ones.

Re: Auld Lang Syne for Kite Guitar

Auld Lang Syne isn't a Christmas song (and I happen to kinda hate Christmas songs), it's a **new years** song! But nevermind that :wink: I chose to linger on the chords because you can't hear what's so special about the tuning if it just flies by. You can spend a LOT longer on some of these chords a...

Auld Lang Syne for Kite Guitar

Hi all, long time with no real output from me. That's changing. Here's the first taste https://youtu.be/sZGZmgGkYzI The Kite Guitar is itself an amazing innovation, the solution to thousands of years of dilemmas around how to get practical harmonic tuning. And because several of us are GNU/Linux, Fr...

Pulse out and in via Jack by default?

Since updating to KDE Neon (Ubuntu) 20.04, Pulse audio doesn't start with Jack output selected. I see all these output and input options, one of each is the Jack bridge. But there's no choice to set the default to Jack. Anyone know how I can do that and not have to choose that every time I reboot?

Re: mismatch between JACK and Pulse sample rate

Either switch JACK to match the hardware sample rate or the hardware to match JACK's. If you have more than one sound device you can also dedicate JACK to the one you use for production work and leave the other for games, Youtube, etc. and avoid the interference. Well, in this case, I switched the ...

mismatch between JACK and Pulse sample rate

Until recently, I had an issue where the "switch master" function in JACK (to change the hardware setup, such as sample rate or device) would lose the connection to Pulseaudio bridge. I had to stop and restart the bridge (not pulse itself, just the bridge) to get the JACK connections reest...

Re: Why Guitarix factory presets so awful and loud??

Yes, tramp, I'm aware and also very grateful! I think your replies here were all within reason. My post today was not directed toward you at all. I don't happen to agree with the idea that demonstrating significant signal boost is appropriate (it's trivial to merely amplify a signal and isn't what m...

Re: Why Guitarix factory presets so awful and loud??

Please everyone, stick to a constructive middle-ground in this discussion. We don't need either hyperbolic ad hominem (the presets are deserving of criticism but there's no need to make it personal about the authors of the presets) or dismissive defensiveness (the various versions of replies that us...

Re: Why Guitarix factory presets so awful and loud??

:welcome: Remember: Each converter in the audio/MIDI interfaces is different, each speaker is different and each room sounds different. Ideally Audiophil is almost neutral, but who has that? Make your own presets and share them. Surely you wouldn't think the poster you're replying to believes that ...

Re: New KXStudio Repositories

Okay, I guess there's three possibilities for no-longer-KXStudio packaged stuff: 1. Orphaned (can identify those easily) 2. Moved to the meta kxstudio-recommended… packages (also easy enough to identify) 3. Neither I don't know how to get a list of number 3. That's specifically packages that *are* a...

Re: New KXStudio Repositories

I'm happy to say that the upgrade is all working for me. However, going forward, I am unclear about the smoothest way to clear out no-longer-supported stuff that has the blocking-style version numbers from old stuff. If I find out that a package is stuck, I think I can do this: 1. Remove package 2. ...

Re: New KXStudio Repositories

My worry is only that I may have had a system with various tools and things installed that was optimized nicely and then after the switch over (or in future installs) I didn't note that I really want something particular installed. Of course, if it's an app, I will remember about it if I think "...
