Re: High sample rate drum machine options?

Thanks. This was mostly stuff I'm familiar with already (I'm a physicist); Ha! Me too! You will maybe find this stuff on my blog interesting. Well, this was interesting! I was trying to figure out how best to produce a recording of what I'm hearing -- right now I don't have monitor speakers install...

Re: High sample rate drum machine options?

I'm guessing this is an issue with the sample rates of the instrument samples that the kits are built on: they were probably sampled at 44.1k or 48k, and at 96k I'm guessing there's some interpolation issues or something. I would find it very odd if resampling was lowering the quality at all . I th...

Hi there! Welcome to the forums. Looks like you are a frog chilling out on a rocking-chair with a banjo. Maybe I will not be the weirdest reptile thing lurking out here anymore... Milo -- "Nice" guitars are whatever works for you. I am fortunate enough to have a couple of fine axes, but tr...

Re: A guideline for minimal audio configuration

Correct me if I'm wrong, but doesn't JACK sit on top of ALSA? I didn't know it was possible to run JACK without it. You are correct. Jack runs in user space and it routes audio to a back-end. Doesn't have to be ALSA: it can be OSS, FFADO, Core Audio (on macs) or many others. The actual audio functi...

Re: lets talk about apple mac

In general I thought that OS X had a beautiful interface, but one that I couldn't customize at all. I must be in the minority that absolutely hate Mac OS interface. I cannot stand how multiple desktop and screens are managed, and how it cycles focus between windows, and how laggy thee effects are. ...

Re: lets talk about apple mac

Simple choice, free vs non-free, I'll choose free. Interestingly, Apple actually does publish a fair bit of open source code: https://opensource.apple.com/. In fact, there is an Open Source distribution based around the Mac OS core code: PureDarwin . So, in theory it is possible to have Mac OS free...

Re: lets talk about apple mac

Are you happy with your linux-audio-system? Yep, very. I cannot recall the last time it took me a lot of time to set it up either. I think that once you are over the top of the learning curve, and you know what you are doing, Linux is really not different from anything else in terms of performance ...

Re: Why I can't get away from Windows (for now)

Hi! I think the exchange is interesting, so I will jump in. Being a die-hard Linux user is sort of likee being an exclusive barefoot runner. Limitations like what? I don't see any significant besides Dante protocol, but it's way out of scope of home/stage user. Others are lack of knowledge or intell...

Re: Stay Tuned Studio Music 64 debian buster + kx studio based

Hi Gennaro! Interesting project, thanks for sharing! I would suggest you double check whether you want to describe your project as a "distro". There isn't a rigid definition of what a distro is, and your project would definitely fit the bill, however most people associate a distro with som...

Re: 256GB Micro SD Card not deteted properly on Ubuntu Studio 19.04

Hi! Is the SD Card formatted? If so, what is the file system? Chances are that you might need to install a package to enable support for the filesystem your SD card is formatted with.

Re: Crowdfunding official audio interface support

I agree with everything Merlyn said. If a company does not want to develop drivers for Linux, has never planned for it, and has no intention to do so, or even human resources to allocate for the tasks associated with it, then a one off payment will not change that. Not to mention: they will never ac...

Re: NixOS and music: Experiences?

I think there's a solid chance you're right. I'm going to try Nix, though. I read some of the manual, and learned that after building a snapshot you can test it without making it the default, via `run nixos-rebuild test`. Seems pretty safe -- but it has a fearsome reputation, so who knows. NixOS wa...

Re: NixOS and music: Experiences?

You are kidding right? I hope that you are kidding. You cannot have both jack1 and jack2 installed on a same system. Indeed, they conflict. As far as I know, NixOS would get around this though, as you will be able to boot into different snapshots, each one with its own applications. So, to be clear...
