Re: Jack mixer as pulseaudio mixer

Currently the bridge ALSA -> Jack is able to detect and show the connections of such streams in Claudia ONLY when they're actually playing, am I wrong? In claudia or catia patch the alsa2jack (using the Loopback card) jack client bridge shows permanently. If you create another jack client bridge wi...

Re: File Browser Waveform, MIDI and BPM Thumbnails ?

mixxx can analize bpm of all your files, key detection is to be implemented. It uses either soundtouch library or QM vamp plugins, your choice in preferences. Sonic visualizer can give you all info about a file: http://sonicvisualiser.org/index.html Rapid evolution might be what you need: http://ww...

Re: no sound from youtube or cd after using jack

Without using pulseaudio, to have a non jack app send audio to jack choose the Loopback card included in kxstudio to be used. You start cadence, start jack, then under "Alsa audio" choose Bridge type: "ALSA->loop->jack" and click on start. Now any program using loopback card goes to jack output. To ...

Keep sunvox

I'd like to vote to keep sunvox within the next kxstudio even if it is no longer open source. The linux version on its webpage installs and works fine, so it would not affect us users removing it. But considering kxstudio a grouping of linux audio apps it would be incomplete if it did not include th...

Re: Package requests here! (New and updates)

There is no deb package, so it can't be installed on Debian without compiling.
In the link:

Click on "View package details", click triangular arrow to expand for your ubuntu version and voilá.

Re: Package requests here! (New and updates)

The linux version before this latest didnt install well, so I had been using the version for another platform with wine. The author has dispersed different versions in sourceforge and launchpad, and only this mentioned deb works well in kxstudio. For someone wanting to install lenmus it would be eas...

Re: what I like in a MIDI sequencer

Edits apply arbitrarily from any point to any other point in a track (i.e. not delimited by measure/bar lines).
Groove options to offset notes from the bars and various swing options in quantization is very convenient to humanize sound.

Re: HiFiBerry

Good, at last one can get good sound off a pi. My trials with usb audio and jack were not satisfactory. So this is not to use it as in-out effect box, but as a synth (only one) receiving midi via eth or a usb midi converter, and send sound to speakers or an audio mixing desk. If this is an audiophil...

Re: seq24 - Is there a way to bind midi notes to patterns?

The patterns are activated by keyboard letters, so you need something to convert instantly from a midi note to a keyboard letter. mid2key should work: Small GNU/Linux program that captures live midi input (a device like /dev/midi1 ) and maps the notes to simulated key presses. The map is set by a si...

Re: Seq24 import AddictiveDrums midi files?

To convert a format 0 file of addictive drums usable for seq24 I use smfsh which does it instantly. So to change format 0 to format 1 it goes: smfsh drums.mid File 'drums.mid' loaded. format: 0 (single track); number of tracks: 1; division: 480 PPQN. Track number 1 selected; it contains 27 events. s...

sfz editing

I have sampled with synthclone and exported as an sfz file. I have yet to understand settings in this program, so I look into the sfz text files produced and edit by hand. The highlife-lv2 or highlife-vst can load and save sfz files, though in linux the "sample a vst automatically" doesnt work. I am...

Re: Choosing programs for youth music project

The best introduction combination in my opinion would be LMMS + Audacity + command line audio commands (batch). Audacity is mainstream and well known, it would cover the audio part, recording, samples, formats, effects, types of soundwaves, etc. The interface is similar to many other programs they w...
