Re: Getting started with VCV Rack

Nice, thanks for doing this. I downloaded and started with it yesterday actually. I think I made a bit of a mistake by installing every plugin available - think I'll have to strip that down a bit.

Re: gentoostudio

Glad to hear there's still some life in the overlay but a shame there are not more contributing by the sounds of it. I don't use gen/funtoo these days but if I ever move away from 'just works' easy distros then it would be back to the *ntoo.

Re: Choppy sound recording a guitar using Mint 18.3 and a Line6 Pod X3 Live – Kernel issues?

If they don't provide the version you need for the lowlatency kernel then you can build your own or install one from somewhere else. I recommend giving the liquorix kernel a try, it's easy to install and works well for audio and desktop use - https://liquorix.net/#install - that will give you 4.20 (...

I suspect the skill of the engineers and producers had more to do with it than the console specifically.

Re: Your favourite Linux DAW's in 2019?

So they've taken the trouble to emulate a full 32C EQ circuit down to the resistors and capacitors and it results in a largely identical sound ? I don't think that's what it hints at at all. It's saying that if you play a track in mixbus and ardour at exactly the same time ... The word 'ardour' (or...

Re: Your favourite Linux DAW's in 2019?

"In both products, the channelstrip EQ is "always in circuit" ... meaning the signal is always passing through the math, ( bypass simply means that the gain for the EQs is set to "0" ). In practice, if the EQs are both set flat or bypassed, the difference should be vanishin...

Re: Your favourite Linux DAW's in 2019?

That's probably a fair conclusion but very much dependent on your needs and how you get on with the way they do midi. I think it's pretty good overall but there are some significant bugs when it comes to looping midi. There are high hopes for ardour 6 to address these problems but apparently it invo...

Re: Your favourite Linux DAW's in 2019?

On the subject of mixbus vs ardour, it's true that mixbus offers a lot of nice additional features but I don't think it should be viewed as ardour pro as such or even better necessarily, it has some serious drawbacks when it comes to routing that ardour does not suffer. As far as I can tell the mixb...

Re: Your favourite Linux DAW's in 2019?

Yeh I'm not against using multiple programs. I've considered using Harrsion Mixbus just for mixing but I just like to do it all in one program. One of the reasons for that is so that if I wanted to play live from my project, it's already a finished song and will sound good live, otherwise I'll only...

Re: The best Linux DAW's in 2019?

I've also tried Renoise. Trackers aren't really my thing unless it's just some novelty fun I'm after, but it does do its job very well. But yeh, looks like you take that different programs for different stages of production approach which I mentioned. Seems so common amongst Linux users.. I would p...

Re: Restore Ardour session to its original state

I think ardour keeps a .bak version of the project so you could try renaming that and opening it. I would backup the whole project folder first though.

Re: The best Linux DAW's in 2019?

I tend to have two stages of the music I make, making and mixing the music, and then editing and mixing vocals. I have always used renoise for the music, for me it's very creative and I like the amount of modulation that's possible, control of details that you can have, the native fx, and the stabil...
