Re: [Solved] Trouble installing Wine Staging on Mint 19.1

Death, thanks for posting this thread. I recently migrated back to Mint a few weeks ago and ran into this same problem, but never attempted to solve it because I've been trying to stop using WINE (it's a crutch in my audio workflow). I had the same issue of mentally blocking out the "i386"...

Re: Please recommend a non-JACK Linux VST host for plugin chaining

Your goal seems to be find daw capabilities in an editor. Thanks for the videos. I'm actually looking for an audio editor with a real-time effects chain. This is something Wavosaur has (my main editor) and is also a feature that existed in Sound Forge 5 back in 2001 . Reaper looks very powerful. A ...

Re: Please recommend a non-JACK Linux VST host for plugin chaining

Use editors for editing, you'll get more done and with better quality if you don't bend your tools. Hi. I'm not exactly sure what you are saying here. My goal is to find an native Linux audio editor that has real-time effects plugin chaining. As it stands right now, I use OcenAudio or Audacity for ...

Re: Please recommend a non-JACK Linux VST host for plugin chaining

Check out this flex: Here is my Windows 98SE laptop I keep around. It shows Sound Forge 5 with a real-time audio plugin chain -- something we don't have yet in any Linux audio editor. https://i.imgur.com/oEGzyUr.jpg I really, REALLY want to ditch Windows completely, but I still can't. This kind of f...

Re: Please recommend a non-JACK Linux VST host for plugin chaining

Yes, I was bummed to discover the audio is not processed through Carla. One Day Linux Audio will catch up to the 1990s! :(

Yes, thank you. I've done all of the above and it's nice to hear some confirmation. I hope there is a solution to the Calf problem, those are some great plugins.

Re: Please recommend a non-JACK Linux VST host for plugin chaining

JACK has caused just as many problems as it's solved. What are them exactly? An adequate answer would be significantly off topic, but thanks for your help. Oh I would recommend not wasting time to get jost to work. Active it was developed almost 10 years ago and even at that time it was not really ...

Re: Please recommend a non-JACK Linux VST host for plugin chaining

Are there any non-JACK solutions? People, why are you all so much against JACK? ... If you need to route audio between applications, it's a must. While that's true, I don't need to route between multiple audio applications. I want to extend functionality within one application. Also, from my unfort...

Re: Please recommend a non-JACK Linux VST host for plugin chaining

Did you try carla.vst inside ocenaudio? I had not! With your advice I downloaded the standalone Carla binary and was able to use it inside OcenAudio. The results were mixed. Some plugins worked, but Carla would not launch the GUI. Calf plugins did not work at all with is extremely surprising. Howev...

Please recommend a non-JACK Linux VST host for plugin chaining

EDIT: Carla VST works in OcenAudio, though not all plugins work as expected when routed through Carla. Also, only the previews work and the audio will not processed. The recent discussion " Why run Windows software on Linux? " has prompted me to look at breaking my WINE habit. The biggest...

Re: Why run Windows software on Linux?

My music/audio workflow is almost entirely Windows binaries in WINE. What daw / tools you are using? DAW: Energy XT (it's pretty much abandonware at this point, but works great) Audio Editor: Wavosaur (also becoming abandonware, but blows the crap out of Audacity) I'm also dependent on several VST ...

Re: Why run Windows software on Linux?

I simply wanted to gain an understanding of why people run complicated pieces of Windows software on Linux... How do you define "complicated?" My music/audio workflow is almost entirely Windows binaries in WINE. Why? Because the software is more powerful and the features suit my needs per...

Re: Looped SFZ instruments

Wavosaur is Windows only. And it's also the single best tool for looping waves I've ever used. I'd advise you to try to get it running under Wine first, before wasting time on inferior tools. Ditto. Wavosaur is the best free audio editor I've ever used and it's been running perfectly in WINE for se...
