Re: Getting started with VCV Rack [updated 2/28]

I just listened to this interview with Andrew Belt, the maker of VCV Rack: https://artmusictech.libsyn.com/podcast-211-andrew-belt-vcv-rack Apart from simply recommending it, as it's very interesting, I also want to ask about something he mentions towards the end - the vst version of VCV Rack named ...

Re: Getting started with VCV Rack [updated 2/28]

Look at the screenshot I posted above, upper left. There's a MIDI module. That module takes the MIDI input from the DAW and 'converts' it to a 'voltage' value related to a scale. But it will not stop the note that's played. For that you need the gate output from that MIDI module and connect it to a...

Re: Getting started with VCV Rack [updated 2/28]

I've been playing around with VCV rack quite a bit, and I enjoy it sooo much. So I was very happy to read this thread and discover the vst. That's really what I've been dreaming of. However I cannot find out how to get any sound from the vst in qtractor. Like where to start, how to make a midi trigg...

Re: There's a lack of Qtractor video tutorials..

Also, there doesn't seem to be a shortcut key that can be used to perform the split itself. Well, if you go to Help -> Shortcuts, and scroll down just a little, you can make your own shortcut key for "Edit/Clip/Split". I use Alt+S, as I find that to be both logical and easy to use. But th...

Airwindows - core dumped

So, I've finally installed the Airwindows plugins, which I've been reading about for a long time, and which seem to be rather beloved. But when I try opening an Airwindows plugin in Qtractor, Qtractor crashes with the following message: qt5ct: using qt5ct plugin qt5ct: D-Bus global menu: no Aborted ...

Re: Airwindows package in KXStudio repos

Well, I reported it on github, and just by installing once again, "dpkg -L airwindows" quite easily showed all my Airwindows plugins. To be honest, I don't really know what happened. Unfortunately they make my Qtractor crash (core dumped), so there wasn't really much use for me being able ...

Re: Airwindows package in KXStudio repos

That's weird... The following command should list the files in the package: apt-file list airwindows put the output is empty... So, maybe this package has no content. Maybe you could try to contact FalkTX... Just like you, I don't get any output. So I'll just report it at github. Thanks for your he...

Airwindows package in KXStudio repos

Hey.
I've installed the Airwindows VST package from KXStudio repos, but I cannot seem to find the plugins anywhere.
Not in Qtractor, not in Carla, not even in /usr/lib/vst.
Anyone know anything about this package and whether it works or not?

Re: There's a lack of Qtractor video tutorials..

I'm going to give this program a good shot as I really want to ditch using Wine for music stuff and Qtractor has been one of the most appealing programs on Linux so far. Cheers. I just want to give you a heads up on the idea of giving Qtractor a chance. Since I first gave it a real chance 6 years a...

Oh, sorry for that.
As you probably understood, I know nothing about it. :D

Re: Live mixing with Linux - State of the art 2018

Could you point out in which situations exactly you did get xruns with a non-realtime kernel? I had used a 64 bit buffer, and I had no xruns during that gig except when loading / saving files, not while playing. As I said, using network for remote-acces via vnc would be interesting for me, would, f...

Re: Live mixing with Linux - State of the art 2018

Just a small note after reading this whole thread: I've seen several people here on LinuxMusicians claim that a realtime kernel is not necessary, that a low latency will do just as fine for live stuff. This has never been my experience. I've used GNU/Linux for live gigs the last 5 years, and on diff...

Ah, yes.
I've only listened to it, but it's fun to watch.
Thanks!

There is a tad of mounting. And a little sudo, of course. Can't live without that.

Sexy Linux

Well, if you'd like some juicy Linux time, I just wish to recommend this story from the podcast Bawdy Storytelling. In fact, I easily recommend the whole podcast, but for those not as pervy as me, but just as Linux geeky (or maybe even more so), it's possible that you'll find at least this story fun...
