Re: Storing projects on Google drive...concerns?

Offhand, does anyone think there could come a time where Google says "since you've been using our service for x and y, we technically can do what we want with the content in it because you agreed to the terms and conditions of said service (Drive in this case)". Short answer: I don't know...

Re: DAW vs DAW

FWIW, I've watched the videos... The author starts by saying that, if nothing is done with the tracks, all DAWs sound the same (except something like Mixbus, which, if I understand it well, is always doing something to the tracks via analog emulation). These first videos see what happens when you a...

Re: DAW vs DAW

I did not watch the videos yet, but here two comments on "DAWs not sounding the same" that I want to do, straight from the top of my head. I think the fundamentals of recording audio streams to disk are not gonna produce audible differences if properly implemented. Most likely, most of the...

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

People have to see some benefit to moving over to Linux. AVLinux and Ubuntu Studio partly solve the ease of use problem, but lack of interface and plugin support negate all the benefits for a lot of musicians. Who wants to have to buy a different interface and either stop using plugins they are use...

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

For the number of Linux users to increase we have to 'turn' Windows users. That means making Linux more attractive and accessible to them. Which means more GUIs, less command line. As long as the command line is not replaced by GUI tools, OK. I want my command line. You will get the command line aw...

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

This is not really a yes or no question, I believe. What I really would like to see is the Linux audio stack becoming more performant and more straightforward to use *. Not that things are bad as of now, but I am happy to be seeing the RT patch getting Incorporated into the main kernel branch, and I...

Re: Gah....

I've just tried to install ubuntu studio and add the kxstudio repositories. What the idiots have done is beyond belief. They have removed jackdbus and parcelled it exclusively with ubuntu-studio-controls, and so you can no longer install the repos over the top of ubuntu studio. Its enraging. Its th...

Re: Microphone grill foam questions

That looks like a foam grill to replace the totall (metal) grill or as outside cover of it.. Does not look like the inside foam from a metal grill. Aw yeah, now that I look at it better it does seem like something that goes on the outside. Extraordinair costs to replace a few dimes of simple foam. ...

Re: Microphone grill foam questions

Thank you. But i do not mean that kind of foams. I mean the foam inside the grill ball. Replacement foams are indeed available at the link provided by sysrqer, for example this one for a shure model: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Shure-SM-57-63-SM94-Replacement-Foam-1-Gray-Windscreen-from-Windtech-600...

Analog Modeling DSP Resources, and More

Hi guys!

I though I would link here the page of Stefano D'Angelo, it is really interesting:

http://dangelo.audio/

There is plenty of literature about DSP and modeling of analog audio equipment. The guy also published open source code. Hope you find this interesting too.

Probably late to the party, but here my two cents. I have a Behringher UMC202HD. Not the same unit you are considering, but one of the same series (U-Phoria). I planned to do a detailed review as that I did for my old gen Scarlett which you see here , but that has become item #57495 on my list of th...

OK, I finally managed to read the thread properly. I'm on arch, rt-kernel 5.0.5 . I do: I summarize what I do on my system: - use linux-rt kernel (which does not seem to make a real difference, at least as shown by xruncounter) - set cpu governor to performance - disable hyperthreading - suspend bal...
