Re: Go-DSP-Guitar multichannel multi-effects processor

I can't contribute much technically to the conversation, but what I'll do when I next get a break is download this, compile it, and try it out.

It can't hurt to see how it performs/sounds/works!

Re: Can the Low-Latency & KX Studios various software be installed on Lubuntu?

I just finished building a system with pretty much the works software wise -- kubuntu 19.10, kxstudio, audacity, ardour, mixbus, lmms, the airwindows plugins, jamin, the ddp tools plus some graphics stuff and the low-latency kernel and it all came to less than 16 gigs on the hard drive. I'm also usi...

Re: Geekos DAW (libre music-making repository for openSUSE)

Wow! Awesome! For a long time, SuSE was my distro of choice because everything in it just worked. To me, it was the BMW of Linux distros. But when it came to music making, KXStudio provided the same experience: everything worked out of the box. Now, it seems you are combining those two worlds!

Re: KX Studio at the End of Standard Support - what now?

The answer for me is ... wait. I am not using my KXStudio computer for a high-end webserver, or for penetration testing for the NSA. It is a nice, quiet, PC sitting in my office behind a firewall where the wav files I record are unlikely to attack it. I love KXStudio and (until he canceled all the a...

Re: Most used Linux distribution?

I doubt it is the most used at this point, but I have to admit I am still using KXStudio 14.1 because it just plain works with all the bells and whistles I have on there. Yes, I realize security is getting dicey while I hold out for falktx to continue ... but I backup my work and I don't have nuclea...

Re: Tips for EDM production in Linux

I got started with EDM production using LMMS on Linux and this book:

I got the $16 electronic version, of course.

Re: MUSIC DISTROS

I'm a huge fan of KXStudio because a lot of the more complicated aspects of Linux audio just plain work out of the box without have to get a degree in alsa-jack-usb-oh my! lol For a Daw, I like Ardour, which you can get in pre-compiled form at ardour.org for a $4/month contribution. If you are used ...

Re: Advice for a DAW under Linux (don't laugh, please!)

DAWS are sorta like politics ... everybody likes the one they use and persuading them otherwise isn't easy. And there is a good reason for this. Becoming truly adept at using any modern DAW software is a monumental task. Once you get adept at a DAW you have invested a LOT of time and effort in learn...

Re: Any decent DAW on linux?

I'll give you my two cents. I have two hard drives in my computer -- one running windows 7 and the other running KXstudio(linux). I switch which one I boot from in the BIOS. I also have a Network Attached Storage that backs up to the cloud that mounts on both operating systems. I use LMMS extensivel...

Re: The state of midi in Ardour3

I'm using midi on ardour3.3. My basic platform is ubuntu 12.04 with kxstudio added on top which I keep updated obsessively. I mostly use ardour 3 to trigger external synths (jv1080, tx81z, emu proteus, dsi mopho, etc) from a midi track, and capture the results in an audio track. I use a midiman 4x4 ...

Re: Should KXStudio repos move to Debian?

I voted yes. I have used a LOT of linux audio distributions -- I used Fervent's "Studio in a Box," Agnula Demudi, 64Studio, Ubuntu Studio, etc. I really like KXStudio -- in fact, I like it so much I started using Ubuntu just for best compatibility with KXStudio. I use linux for lots of things -- emb...

Re: Native Reaper for Linux?

Yeah, I haven't got it working with Wine either and I'm using the bleeding edge version. I use a lot of hardware synths and though I've successfully got some patch editor librarians working under wine, I haven't gotten others working under wine. So Melodyne and my patch editors/librarians will still...

Update hardware matrix wiki?

Hi! The M-audio 2x2 and 4x4 anniversary edition midisport interfaces worked out of the box for me (ubuntu studio 12.04 + KXStudio). Ditto for the Alesis Multimix 8FX USB (it's a usb 1.1 class compliant gizmo. You only get the mixed stereo out of it.) I was looking at the hardware matrix wiki and sus...
