Today i plugged an AKAI MIDI controller after a long time, and this is giving me the same problem. So i...

Re: LV2 on HYDROGEN

Thanks for your answers. My need is to work on the effects at the same time as producing the beats. So exporting the tracks and then mixing in Ardour won't help. At the moment, as you suggested, i use CARLA to route Hydrogen instruments to the LV2 plugins. But honestly i don't like this workflow. I'...

LV2 on HYDROGEN

Hello!
What's the best way to use effects on Hydrogen Drum Machine?
It only uses LADSPA plugins and i would like to use LV2.
Also, using the program mixer, many LADSPA plugins don't seem to work (ex. C* Eq10).
Thank you!

What's the OVERDRIVE effect?

Hello,
i was watching a tutorial based on LOGIC PRO and they use the Overdrive effect.
Is this a saturator? Do you know any plugin in GNU/LINUX that does the same thing?
Thanks

QTRACTOR can't draw some notes

Hello, i am not an expert of computer music nor music theory, so it might be an obvious question, but is there a reason why i can't draw some notes in the piano roll of Qtractor? Here's a screenshot that explains what i mean: http://i.imgur.com/HEAOzVD.png I can't use the blank notes (E3, F#, G#, et...

Re: Help me using CALF Sidechain Compressor

Yes, he shows how to use the plugin in Ardour. I am trying to use it in CARLA.
When i plug the kick signal to SIDECHAIN1 it doesn't work, i also activated the sidechain button.

EDIT: I think there was a problem with the bass synth. Now it works. Connection like this: http://i.imgur.com/UCQ2W2D.png

At the moment i use LMMS to do this, but i would like to kno...

Everytime i change the soundfont file, a restart of the engine is required, so i have to reconnect my MIDI keyboard to Fluidsynth via Qjackctl.
