Re: MusE 3.1pre1

Anyway to get a pre-built binary for debian testing? Muse is one of my most used programs. But the debian repositories are stuck on a 2.1 version.


Compiling gnome software was enough of a nightmare these past years. I don't want risk my health with qt too.

The best and weirdest band you never heard of

They're a french band called "Magma". Don't try to discern the lyrics. They sing in Kobaian, which is the language of the planet Kobaia. (It's a long story). During performances, the drummer is known to channel a telepathic kobaian "messenger" known as Kohrmann, which accounts fo...

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

That wallpaper is horrific. But I did laugh at the attempt to avoid a trademark infringement from Marshall by changing the guitar amp brand to "Mitchell". Apparently Mitchell amps are inspired by Spinal Tap, since the volume goes up to 14.

Just make sure you don't schedule it upon the same day of the month when most developers attend to their personal hygiene.

Re: Thank-a-developer day

I'd like to thank myself for putting up with you annoying endusers of my software. If you really want to please developers, then forget about the thanks, and instead buy us some Mountain Dew soda and pizza. Just leave it at the front door, ring the doorbell, and leave. We don't like being forced to ...

Re: What kind of musician am I?

The bad news: You're schizophrenic.

The good news: You should be able to get a group rate from your psychiatrist.

The best way to achieve this is to not drink so much that you blackout.

Re: Microphone recommendations for speech

Actually, it was someone else who mentioned about condensers being "more sensitive" to noise. In fact, they aren't per se. They simply tend to be "hotter" than dynamic mics. That is to say, they record everything at a louder volume, and so it just seems as if the noise is louder ...

Re: Microphone recommendations for speech

I've worked in recording studios, and I've used mics by Neumann, AKG, Beyer, Senheisser, Shure, Electrovoice (EV), and others. I always recommend that people pick up a few Shure SM57 or SM58. (The 58 is essentially a 57 with a built-in wind shield. But you can also buy external foam windshields for ...

You need to use MMAP mode for audio input/output.

Re: EZDrummer alternative?

I've never tried BackupBand. Heathen! Infidel! Apple consumer! Why haven't you tried it? Because it's meant for live performance/practice, it's designed for maximum "instant gratification". There's no setup or learning curve required. Just unzip and run the BackupBand binary. Double-Click...

Re: Using MIDI for RPC

Is there a way to use MIDI to send arbitrary data? Yes. You put the data inside a "System Exclusive" MIDI message. This message starts with the hex byte F0 and ends with the hex byte F7. In between these two bytes can be any number of bytes, for any purpose. But the data bytes must be 7-b...
