Re: Burnout

Thanks to everyone for the posts. I agree that burnout is an important subject in a lot of fields, and computing is no exception! When you think of the amount of concentration and precision that it requires (all it takes is a comma or letter or digit out of place and all goes haywire!), it's importa...

Re: Burnout

Thanks milo,
I enjoyed reading your post and links. Of the stress reduction and recharging, I think we often forget about the recharging part of it.

What kinds of things are good for recharging? Is recharging simply the result of stress reduction?

Burnout

Hi everyone, I thought I'd start a thread where anyone could talk about this important and pervasive problem, as it can happen in just about any field, including programming! Has anyone here experienced burnout, especially in relation to using computers and/or music? What did you do to deal with and...

Re: Wsynth presets (esp. in Qtractor)

@rncbc: It does help, thanks! I've started analyzing .qxt files that I created with Xsynth (which, in 64-bit, provides the dssi gui), and indeed, there are all of the Config page commands that can be added to the .qtx file for full control. (The Qtractor gui doesn't provide the Config page settings ...

Re: amsynth 1.9.0 released!

I just noticed on my LinuxMint 17.3 "Rosa" PC that amsynth in the distros is version 1.3.2-2. :(
I'm aware that my distro is now needing an upgrade to 19, but until a few months ago it was getting regular updates.

Wsynth presets (esp. in Qtractor)

Hi everyone, using Wsynth in 64-bit has been a bit disappointing for me until now. It didn't provide a native GUI as the 32-bit version does, and as such, controlling parameters such as polyphony and monophonic control of legato, etc was inaccessible in hosts such as Qtractor. In other words, some o...

Re: MUSIC DISTROS

I'm currently using and enjoying Librazik. (Librazik-2) There are others that are good too; Ubuntu Studio is good, although perhaps not as "light" as I like. AVlinux is also very nice. So much good stuff to try out! :) If you are comfortable with installing your own RT or LL kernel, I supp...

Re: Best synths?

A new one-synth (linux only) challenge would be nice. It was done a while back with Dexed. Anyone interested?

My webpages for Dexed and Hexter have fixed links to Dave Benson's DX7 page... with LOTS of presets!

Re: AV Linux 2019 Update

Thank you for the update Gmaq! Recently I have started appreciating taking breaks when necessary: life is not only time in front of a computer. I also appreciated reading your forum post which mentions updating keys for repositories. This is something new to me, and I'm glad to have read it. (I thin...

Re: [ANN] Vee One Suite 0.9.3 - An Autumn'18 Release

I've been really enjoying Drumkv1 recently. Having separate setting control for each note is really nice, even if it takes a bit of time to set up when using lots of samples.
Thanks rncbc!

Re: KXStudio project is currently on a break

I think taking breaks is totally healthy and necessary for all people. Sometimes it seems like technology is pushing things too fast. Things never stay the same, always updates, etc.

A big thumbs-up to falkTX on his decision. He's REALLY helped linux audio come a long way, and he deserves it!
