Re: Hello everyone!

Hi Chris, Wonderful to have you on board. And your uke and penny whistle surely make a great combination. :) Some years ago, I sold most of my acoustic string instruments and replaced those with flat-body electric equivalents. A flat-body electric tenor guitar, for instance, substituting its very mu...

Re: Hi from Italy

I just welcomed mimmo, also from Italy. That makes three. But I think there may be many more Italians on LM.

Re: Hello from Italy

Hi mimmo, Welcome to Linux Musicians. Don't worry about your English not being native. Linux Musicians is teeming with speakers of English as second or third language, so you're most assuredly not the sole one here. :) And believe me: if you wish to improve your English, visit LM as often as you can...

Re: !Noob questions from a noob! all input is greatly appreciated

Hi Gillv88, Welcome to Linux. I agree with assink that Mint might be a good place to start. Especially if you're fresh from Windows. But if you're serious about adventures in audio, I'd also recommend to have a good look at the Linux sound architecture and how its different components relate and int...

Hi all, The core of my current gear: - desktop computer - screen - two speaker boxes - M-Audio Keystation 88 MIDI controller (large) - Gem 5-7 electric piano (small), doubling as spare MIDI controller. All this, except the desktop, is currently mounted on an improvised "rack" consisting of...

Re: Anyone using Zoom R16 as audio interface in Linux?

Zoom 16/24 require kernel >= 4.4 Hello all, Four months after seeking your advice on how to make my Zoom R16 compatible with KDE Mint 17 ("Qiana", not "Rosa", as I wrote earlier, mistakenly) , I can report that R16, in audio interface mode, is now fully operational. Furthermore,...

Re: Question for Zoom R16 owners using Fedora as well

Hi Jack, Thanks very much for your extensive explanation. Educative and illuminating. In the meanwhile, I just tried dmesg -w, and got this read-out: -G585:~ > dmesg -w [b]dmesg: invalid option -- 'w'[/b] Usage: dmesg [options] Options: -C, --clear clear the kernel ring buffer -c, --read-clear read ...

Jack Winter writes: Lowlatency or realtime has nothing to do with the version number of the kernel. 4.14.x can be built in several different "flavours". If the output of "uname -v" contains PREEMPT then it's a so called lowlatency kernel, and if it contains PREEMPT RT then it's ...

Question for Zoom R16 owners using Fedora as well

Hello all, Presently under consideration is a switch from KDE Mint 17.3 to Fedora. This is mainly due to stability issues on my regular laptop. Central to music production, though, is my desktop unit. Like my laptop, it runs on KDE Mint 17.3 as well, at present. But there is an argument for changing...

Re: Die Frau im Mond

German: Großartiger Song! Produktionswerte erstaunlich. Das 'mittelalterliche' Element ist auch cool. Immerhin, eine milde kritische Note hinzugefügt: die Bilanz zwischen Gesang und Begleitung brãuchte Verbesserung, meiner Meinung nach.

Anyone using Zoom R16 as audio interface in Linux?

Hello all, I'm currently working on getting my home studio out of the doldrums. My production unit is a desktop with KDE Mint "Rosa" on it. A budget for necessary investments is available, but all of it has already been allocated. Therefore I don't have anything left for a decent audio int...
