Re: Linux music as a major player...

I bought the DynaSample Xpression . W/r/to its features I should better not try to list them as I certainly would omit quite a lot of them: I only have a rather limited requirement for fancy things beyond choosing an instrument and playing it live by means of a wind controller. As of today no inter...

Re: Linux music as a major player...

Also, on the hardware side, you still have to be careful when buying a soundcard, as far as I'm aware, as not all of them will work well under Linux. Not all of them work well in windoze or 0Sex :lol: The only time there is universal acclaim for the current hardware and commercial software, is when...

Re: Linux music as a major player...

I asked repeatedly for additional information to set up an appropriate system to produce live, musically at least somewhat expressive playing. But in the end the results were not convincing enough, even for me, so I switched over to an advanced & elaborated commercial sample player, and I am qu...

Re: Linux music as a major player...

Anyone who can get me to edit a script, without ammo, is doing something right :wink:
Didn't even need to find the install cd when I rebooted :shock:

Re: Linux music as a major player...

I'd be curious to know what made Bitwig decide to make a Linux version when the overwhelming majority of music software and hardware vendors behave as if Linux doesn't exist. Don't get me wrong, I'm not complaining - more interest in Linux is always nice - but I'm so accustomed to Linux being ignor...

Re: Linux music as a major player...

Sounds easy enough - the problem is that we are just a small collection of average joes - how can we compete with the massive marketing departments that proprietary software companies have at their disposal? I can't think of any product I've purchased based on advertising alone. The ads sometimes p...

Re: Linux music as a major player...

It's still a commercial hardware project, which integrate itself perfect in the OpenSource community. It may cover some of the ideas which come up previous in this thread, including commercial founding of OpenSource projects. Looks like a great start, and being able to hear a short demo, and click ...

Re: Linux music as a major player...

Has anyone ever thought about how the modularity of Linux audio systems offers the possibility for commercial companies to come up with creative licensing schemes for their commercial products, and still leverage open-source development in most of their code? We've had a request this year from a co...

Re: Linux music as a major player...

So, lets say, just for example, a deal is struck, and new versions of Guitarix and Hydrogen, are created as bog standard Mac apps, and also as an integral part of a new AVLinux7, so a buyer would purchase three downloads at one price, regardless of whether all three were planned for immediate use. T...

Re: Linux music as a major player...

I think AristX distro team made it clear that they were attempting to load up their release with 'everything'. After taking the synaptic chainsaw to it, and putting it on an ssd, it wasn't bad. Which implies that many linux apps are well coded, with some degree of interoperability, despite such dive...

Re: Linux music as a major player...

You think anything Commercial could be better than KXStudio?! I don't think so... The idea would be for full-time developement, by a team with leadership, employees, communication with the outside world, and a business plan to follow. Look at public response to the Bitwig release. There were many e...

Re: Anyone using EnergyXT 2.7?

why does it have to be a commercial product? everything I make will always be opensource, that's a price I'm willing to pay myself. it may sound a very bad business practice, but I'm not here for the money. Despite the more obvious rewards of fame, and wild women, what law states that open source c...

Very good advice, and the learning opportunities abound. It's pretty funny to hear
ones own oldies, and wonder who is to be blamed for such shoddy productions :wink:

Re: Linux music as a major player...

In my struggle to arrive at a viable, explicitly Linux-based solution I never arrived at this point, apart from the unexpressive sound fonts (but that is another point). If someone could teach me: I am really eager to learn. But no excuses please w/r/to "special hardware configurations that ne...

Re: Linux music as a major player...

we as a community have to be the FLOSS marketing team and we are failing. A community has borders, rules, and accepted standards. Who gets to choose the members of 'we'? Who decides which people ''have to be the...(fill in the blank)?' What FLOSS projects are saleable products? 'Team' implies exist...
