Re: How to install jcgui?

Thanks! The reason I asked this question is because I want to have at least one convolver to play with impulse responses. Now I already installed jconvolver but its hard to understand (for me at least) without a GUI. Perhaps there is another alternative? You could use the LSP Plugins suite, it has ...

Re: Hello from a Swedish hobby programmer

Hi! Anyway, this place also seems like a start for exploring what's "out there", in terms of communities. In terms of Audio algorithms and programs, the Faust mailing list is quite active and very supportive. If you ever used Faust, or you are interested into it, you could find many intere...

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

Don't put anything there at all that isn't encrypted. They will scrape it for whatever information they can get, including scanning images to see if they recognise anything. They will then not only use the information themselves, but will sell it to anyone who will pay for it. [...] ⋅ Is ...

Re: Quick(?) Linux DAW Bloatware Removal (MX Linux, AntiX, Debian, Ubuntu)

No need to rebutt me if you aren't of the intebded audience of MX Linux DAW users(!), etc. It is not about rebutting you, and nobody cares about somehow destroying your argument by being pedantic or nitpicky. It is all about contributing to the discussion that you initiated with additional related ...

Re: Quick(?) Linux DAW Bloatware Removal (MX Linux, AntiX, Debian, Ubuntu)

Many or most or perhaps ALL of these items can be safely(?, we hope) purged (completely removed) from a default MX LINUX 18.x fresh install. At least on Debian, the installer installs the base image, and then there is a separate step that allows you to install additional 'tasksel' bundles. The defa...

Re: first factors for audio interface

The Focusrite product line looks good but I really want to know what technical facts someone should assemble before committing to a purchase. I am planning to use the configuration for CD-quality production of mostly instrumental music. Comment is invited! Focusrite are normally quite good. I had a...

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...
