Re: Open Source, Communities, and the Incoming New EU Copyrights Regulations

From what I understood by reading a few things in the last days, the reform they are currently pushing for approval is even worse that what it originally was. Forums, like this one, are gonna be impacted. I will try to find the references I was reading and post them here. The rise of populism and th...

Re: make stereo from 2 cheap USB sound cards each with mono in

Firstly I'd like to acknowledge that noone on this forum is obliged to give me any support. 2nd I'm disappointed at the lack of support. I do not really understand what you mean by this. Anyway, I am afraid I cannot help much on .asoundrc stuff, as I am no expert on that. However, I followed your l...

Re: make stereo from 2 cheap USB sound cards each with mono in

Before I go into more detail could someone please tell me if I'm able to use 2 identical USB cards each with mono mic in to simultaneously record 2 channels in Audacity relatively simply? It is possible and people have been doing this for multiple PCI devices quite a lot in the past. Here it is how...

Re: Your favourite Linux DAW's in 2019? [PLEASE VOTE AGAIN - accidentally reset poll votes!]

And if I do notice a difference then I will be able to go along with the text and call myself a discriminating user. Jumping in for a brief pro-tip. If you guys make experiments of this kind, make sure it is a blind or double blind A/B comparison: you must compare clips by not knowing which is whic...

Re: Are there any big artists that use FOSS software?

It depends on what kind of music you are making, if you are recording instruments or playing in a band then I would agree that performance is the key aspect, and generally you can do everything very well in linux with FOSS tools for that. But if you are Doing electronic music with lots of layering ...

Re: SOUL: The First Universal Sound Language

So... Faust is cool I guess. I prefer to think of these things as 'Rapid Application Development' tools, and by that I mean prototyping tools - something you can use to test an idea, before you commit time to coding it up and optimizing it in a real language like C / C++, (as God and nature intende...

Re: Are there any big artists that use FOSS software?

It does not mean FOSS. FOSS cannot compete on the ground of quality and features with dedicated 40hrs/week teams of developers earning their living with innovation, optimized algorithms, user interfaces, IMHO. Whilst this is probably true for music software, I think it is best to clarify it is not ...

Re: Are there any big artists that use FOSS software?

But what i mean is, try to do some serious deep going administration on Linux. This I never tried (luckily, it does not like the kind of stuff I would enjoy), but I believe you :wink: By the way, if anybody is interested in knowing in which industries Linux and Open Source are a driving force, ther...

Re: Are there any big artists that use FOSS software?

I apologize for sounding negative, but using hardware that runs Linux counts as much as using an Android smartphone :? How does that affect musicians positively? I think that in practice, it makes little difference if a Korg synth runs the Linux kernel or its own, as long as it's compatible with st...

Re: Are there any big artists that use FOSS software?

Just a small thing. Most synth-using musicians just use the names they know, they have no knowledge (or interest) in what's inside. There are a number of famous named instruments that are 100% Linux inside. That's sneaky. Kinda picturing a ninja penguin working its way into a synth. That's quite in...

Factories. Control of machines with which products within NEN specifications have to be produced. I actually seen plenty of Industrial Computers running quality control software on Linux operating systems in my professional life, right at the production line. And I mean high volume production, thou...

Re: Setting up real-time organ playing

Edit it. Can do a lot. Tried it; can't do much, in fact. The thing is, what changes more with “velocity” change is attack, not the “body” of sound. Try a real piano or Pianoteq to understand what I mean. Try a real bass with slap&pop and finger style: you'll notice that just the attack seriousl...

Re: Are there any big artists that use FOSS software?

I don't know any real big name. I think it tends to be a bit of a niche. I would look into the most prominent live coding artists, though, as most likely they use open source audio programming languages. One that is not maybe very famous, but fairly well known from the top of my head would be Onyx A...
