Re: Live Midi - hardware for low latency aka small buffer size

I strenuously disagree about the fans. It's not the noise that matters. It's the fact that moving parts eventually wear out and/or loosen, and fail. There's a reason why you'll find no fans in professional musical instruments. Moving parts are a primary source of failure in equipment that is often p...

Re: Live Midi - hardware for low latency aka small buffer size

an audio interface to it, too. Which one would that be? Focusrite 2x4. It's also mounted in an 4U SKB rackmount case. The case contains my 1U rackmount computer, 2U stereo power amp for the P.A., Focusrite (which is firmly duct-taped to the top of the computer case), and 1U rackmount power bar. The...

Re: Live Midi - hardware for low latency aka small buffer size

As someone who has performed live with a computer for years, I can definintely give you some advice. Don't buy a laptop for live use. Let's face it. Gigging gear is going to be physically stressed. It gets bumped into, squashed, dropped, operated in sunlight on a hot day, dusty, etc. All these thing...

Oh, if you want to do COM in pure C, I wrote a series of articles (with code examples) about that at:

Re: Jack-Audio process callback time period

Just for clarification, it's best not to change the buffer size, nor sample rate, that the enduser sets JACK to use. If you can instead use the "default" JACK settings, do that instead. (ie, Try to design your app so that it can work at the 4 sample rates of 44, 48, 88, and 96 Khz, and any buffer si...

Re: Jack-Audio process callback time period

My code is a realtime synthesizer application Does it get loaded as an (LV2) plugin, or a standalone executable? Because if it's the latter, and latency (between a note being triggered, and the actual pitch being produced) is of utmost importance to you, then your best performance will be achieved ...

Re: Jack-Audio process callback time period

That's due to the way that ALSA's underlying code handles buffering differently than JACK does. (ie, JACK sits on top of ALSA, and does the mixing of all JACK app buffers into the ALSA driver's buffer, in realtime). And ALSA sets up the hardware to trigger an interrupt halfway through the playback o...

Re: Jack-Audio process callback time period

By default, Jack assumes a period of 2. What this means is that Jack divides your buffer into 2 equal pieces (of 256 bytes each). Before you start play, Jack asks you to fill in the first 256 buffer piece with audio data, which jack then gives to your audio hardware to play. While your audio card is...

Got a strong Rolling Stones "Miss You" vibe on that, with less disco on the bass.

Re: Plugin + Mouse wheel for MIDI pitch bends?

Why don't you get a joystick controller, and attach that to the computer? That has the springback already physically built into the device. I imagine that would be not only easier to write software to implement midi pitch wheel, but would also be considerably easier to use (since a pitch wheel is fo...

Re: Strumming (no I can't play guitar)

I forgot a made this "Chord Strum" plugin for Linux, It's a DSSI, so you need a Linux program that can load those plugins (Muse, Ardour, Carla). There's a readme file can explains its use.
