Re: What preference do you have for DAWs?

I use Mixbus (Commercial, but the demo is free to try). I am old fashioned musician playing and recording instruments. I cut my teeth on analogue gear in the pre-digital pre-PC days and I love it. Mixbus has a mixer based on Harrison Console's studio grade hardware. A lot of the stuff you need (comp...

Re: Linux Distro to make music with an old PC

Try the version of Raspbian (the raspberry Pi OS) that has been released for normal Pcs. This is Debian designed to be very light and has full access to Debian repos. EDIT: https://www.raspberrypi.org/downloads/raspberry-pi-desktop/ According to one article the minimum requirement for RAM is 512MB!

Re: Where do you "Set $SOUND_CARD_IRQ"?

Thank you for the responses. The video is unfortunately unwatchable, at least for my eyes/screen :roll: I can't distinguish what the terminal says. So I tried raboof's command: $ SOUND_CARD_IRQ=129 ./realTimeConfigQuickScan.pl and I get: Can't locate QuickScanEngine.pm in @INC (you may need to inst...

Re: EEK. Ubuntu studio using system wide instance of pulseaudio

I am still disabling pulse as it did interfere and cause xruns

I set it so it does not respawn and put commands to stop and start it within my qjackctl setup

I think you can also use the services command to stop it. I use services and kill everything I don't need before a session.

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

If I installed Librazik is it enough like Debian that I can just use it? According to my experiences: Yes. It's very user-friendly. You may install the librazik-apt-non-fr package https://librazik.tuxfamily.org/doc2/comprehension/paquets_librazik#librazik-apt-non-fr . This might help a lot for all ...

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

How different is Librazik from standard Debian please? As different as KXStudio is, compared to Debian or Ubuntu. You have the applications, the kernel, the tweaks and the documentation, that you need to transform vanilla Debian into professional audio tailored operating system. I am an experienced...

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

So now... I hope this community starts to talk a lot much more about 'LibraZiK - audio studio" LibraZiK is a digital audio-software music studio and related documentation, and is based on Debian GNU/Linux Stable. Although it is oriented towards French speaking users (and that is the reason why...

Re: is Hydrogen better than Ardour for drums

There is a kit for Hydrogen (I found it on this forum) for Drumgizmo. You can set up Hydrogen to play Drumgizmo on Ardour; the best drums I have ever been able to produce. When you have finished the drum part on Hydrogen just record it as midi on Ardour, quantise in case of any drift and your whole ...
