Re: testing kx repository on new systems

P.S. I'm thinking of testing these systems even on a new barebone that I'll soon be assembling on intel i7-8700 and UHD 630 always with firewire port ... Why 8700 and not 8700K, which gives you a significant speed boost for not so much of an extra buck? Also, it is worth considering that MoBos for ...

Re: GoboLinux

The project caught my attention a couple of years ago, when I read about it in Linux Voice (we still had that back then – as if it were decades ago :D). But I was as quick to dump the whole idea as I’d got my interest stirred. I’ve spent over seven years in the Arch ecosystem, maintaining a few AUR ...

Multilib is there so one can run 32-bit software on a 64-bit architecture. Native 32-bit is long gone in Arch.

Re: streaming the DAW "live!" with OBS ... how-to ?

OBS can use jack and it does so out of the box here (Arch). I only get ‘No property available’ if jack is stopped. You need to start jack first and then OBS (it seems the latter is not aware of the former’s status changes, so, if you start OBS first without jack running and then start jack, it will ...

Re: Firewire via PCIe Card

Great to hear it’s sorted out. It might be useful to share a link to the card’s product page or at least the make and model, just in case somebody stumbles on this thread looking for the same thing.

Re: Firewire via PCIe Card

I went for the 2x400 port version of that Startech card. Budget is a bit stretched. I’ve taken a look at the 2-port options, and if you selected this: https://www.startech.com/uk/Cards-Adapters/FireWire/2-Port-1394a-PCI-Express-FireWire-Card~PEX1394A2V , please note that it doesn’t have a Texas Ins...

Re: Firewire via PCIe Card

Using multiple cards to extend your inputs is always tricky because of syncing issues. Perhaps buying an interface that provides the required amount of inputs/outputs is the safest bet here. I’ve never tried to use two interfaces at once, but I know it’s a regular can of worms to open.

Re: Firewire via PCIe Card

As usual with FireWire audio, the chipset is crucial, irrespective of the operating system. Stay away from anything VIA, they are not suitable for audio purposes. Texas Instruments are generally said to work, as well as LSI/Agere, but I would research the actual model before buying. I’m using this: ...

Re: Help in OBS and ardour 5.12 using together?

Hi Aquarious12! I’m not an OBS user, but I’ve been an Arch user for long and I thought I should give it a try, see if I could solve your problem. So here goes. For what it’s worth, I think you should try Jack instead of plain ALSA. For the one thing, OBS works with it out of the box and, since Jack ...

Re: muse-git for arch

I'll wait for it to be fixed in the git. none of these are building that's why I grabbed the git without using PKGBUILD The last PKGBUILD linked in the post below built just fine here with the commit appended. Not only did it build, but the drum editor was also fully functional :mrgreen:! I cannot ...

Re: Zrythm - A free GNU/Linux Digital Audio Workstation (DAW) focused on electronic music and high modularity

I'm not sure if there's something not working with my system but it seems very young at the moment. I can't access the preferences (most items in the menu do nothing) and the size of the window is fixed although it looks like it shouldn't be from some of the options available. I couldn't make it pl...
