Re: Please share your gnu/linux music production setup

Hmm, OK. I have a little home studio and we do a few gigs, mostly for charity. The Linux setup is on an AMD FX-4100 CPU on a GigaByte mainboard in a mini-tower, mounded sideways on a 19" rack tray. That may soon change to a proper 19" case, but I've decided the processor is OK. SSD drive f...

Re: BackupBand

Not yet. Right now I'm doing a major update.... Is there anything I can do to help? I've tried to analyse what goes on within the code, but I have to admit that I get rather phased by the pointers-with-offsets and no names, so whilst I've understood how the data from song files is processed, I stil...

Re: BackupBand

I was just wondering if there was any news on documentation/method for building song files?

Re: BackupBand

I found a way. I added .sh and then ran in terminal Might your executable also not be marked as executable? gordon@gordon-office:$ ls -l BackupBand -rwxr-xr-x 1 gordon gscott 316840 Dec 31 17:03 BackupBand ^ ^ if so, the chmod command or a right-click->Properties on the file can change that. The ot...

Re: QJackCtl sessions or Patchbay

I use a combination of tools for this kind of thing, all run from a script. jack_lsp jack_connect jack_disconnect are the bits I use for jack connection management. The script is in python, starts/stops all of the tools I want for a session, complete with options like each application's session, con...

Re: BackupBand

The link I originally put on the first post in this thread is to the 'summary' page on sourceforge, which has the current released version, 1.0, for download. If you want to try the proposed 1.1 version, you'll need to download from the 'code' page on sourceforge, here: https://sourceforge.net/p/bac...

Re: Any recent DAW comparisons?

I really don't understand people coughing up hundreds of dollars for Ableton or Bitwig. But that's me. I agree, but there are commercial tools that are reasonably priced, sensible and effective, like Mixbus, Renoise and Reaper, for example. Maybe now is a time to remind us that we can't have it bot...

Hmm, for me it seems reliably to give no content.

Possibly something to do with my anti-tracking strategy as I find Google often gets caught by it.

Re: BackupBand

For me, sound of BackupBand is not really what I am looking for, and therefore connection to external synth-program would provide more options on selecting sound. At least when I tested, adding new sound to BB was not too simple, or I think it was undocumented. It's certainly true that there are so...

Re: BackupBand

BB's arranger 'guts' drive fuildsynth or external hardware I don't know why you'd want it. It's less efficient, and could result in more "glitches" when changing a chord if you play the chord after the downbeat. That's the kind of thing I was thinking about when I said I might be being na...

Re: BackupBand

I also tested BackupBand, and I think it is great program. However, I would like to use BB as 'engine' but can't forward midi from it to programs... Yes, I'd very much like that, too. A MIDI port to Jack would allow BB's arranger 'guts' work to drive, say, fuildsynth or MIDIDings or external hardwa...

England have our own challenges P.S. Donald wants to know if you can recommend any more right-wing anti-muslim web sites. He's going to retweet them to the mayor of London.

Re: BackupBand

worked on the StyleEdit code Oh god no. StyleEdit was hacked together in one day just to get something working, and the code is a mess. Humans were never meant to witness it. That's good to know. I did notice that some bits were decidedly 'hacky' and had probably been recycled from DOS or Amiga or ...

Re: BackupBand

Having worked on the code a bit now, and seen what the code is supposed to do, I've just thought to copy the BackupBand directory tree to my home directory . StyleEdit then works. Doing a cmp between its out put Demo.mid and my output Demo.mid shows no difference. So I think that's two wins. I haven...

Re: BackupBand

I've been adapting a copy of StyleEdit, yesterday and today, with a view to separating the conversion process from the GUI. That appears to be working in that I can can convert, apparently successfully, between styles and MIDI files. I'm just not sure that it's actually helped me much. Muse hangs o...
