Re: Linux music as a major player...

Let's light the pipe, and say kx, avlinux, and tango, formed a corporation, sorted out the licensing, and began selling a new release, with some value-added content, not available elsewhere, perhaps some samples, utilities, and a few a nifty features, $60 on usbstick, $50 on dvd, and $40 for downlo...

Re: Linux music as a major player...

Talent is abundant on both sides of open-source divide. Economies of scale mean that extravagant commercial products from multiple vendors can compete, if not flood the market. NI and IK have frequent mega-sales, or group-buys, such that after purchase, the user has little need to look for more, whi...

Re: Anyone using EnergyXT 2.7?

that, or make carla-rack work as a vst. considering energyXT and bitwig only load vsts, the carla-rack vst plugin sound better to me (so you can load ladspa, dssi and lv2 in there). hm.... hm....would this not be a great commercial product? It maximises a lot of your work, and could greatly enhance...

Re: Linux music as a major player...

There is an issue with having a successful commercial linux audio/video/arts business. There are 12 solid distributions already, and probably more I don't know of. Unless you get 11 creator/leaders from around the world, to cease and desist, and convince their followers/customers to use only the 'un...

Re: My KVR 'What stops you switching to Linux' thread

"oh, but do those open source apps have this feature X which I have in ProTools/Logic/Reason/Reaper/Garageband/Cubase/etc/etc" and if they don't, "well why should I use them then, I just want the best tool for the job, I need this feature for my work, I'm a pro musician etc". I ...

Re: Linux music as a major player...

If I was in charge of Red Hat, I would headhunt the likes of Paul Davis, R Nuno Capela, R Gareus, falkTX, linuxDSP and the pianoteq devs. I have no doubt that a 'dream team' could be formed. In a sense, that is what bitwig did, a small group, with sundry abilities, pooled their resources to create ...

Re: Linux music as a major player...

So does Linux have a serious roll in pro audio's future or is it just for the home based, having fun musician? There are a couple dozen great softwares in debian sid, and similar competing collections, that cover most sonic territory. Maybe the round-robin/articulations of multi-sampled sounds, as ...

Re: Call for testing: DISTRHO plugin ports (Updated)

The drow plugins worked fine in latest bitwig, reverb, tremolo, flanger,
I liked the sound, could adjust and drag the nice gui's about freely.
They were in the 'new in repository' section last night.

Re: My KVR 'What stops you switching to Linux' thread

There are several civil linux related threads in the kvr bitwig forum, with some great discoveries and contributions, that have helped me greatly in testing it with the normal collection of native linux apps. It's still early, but getting better with each release, whether it comes from the userbase,...

Re: My KVR 'What stops you switching to Linux' thread

that's 170000 views of self-floodesque assertions, showing the dark side of the Linux force. Unfiltered news, and always this "my dick is longer than yours" attitude. You promote the idea that windows apps runflawlessly under Linux, that is not true, and will never be stable. I strongly b...

Re: My KVR 'What stops you switching to Linux' thread

@ Stanlea, If I've not heard of somebody, how can I search for them? I can't spend my time in search engines, randomly typing in what I guess to be names. Don't know everybody, don't care too. Miles to go before I sleep. I don't claim all windows apps run great in wine, neither do I claim all linux ...

Re: My KVR 'What stops you switching to Linux' thread

I'm try mostly to stay in that 'plenty of music to make' boat,
although, as in this case, I occassionly drop an oar by mistake,
or perhaps even throw one, if I stumble upon enough of a temptation :wink:
and then must circle about the pond trying to retrieve it.

Re: My KVR 'What stops you switching to Linux' thread

The thread on KVR is going nuts. This glowrak guy is showing the opposite of what is free software spirit, being narrow minded and unable to understand other's people arguments. Really a waste of time. For many years, I have promoted linux audio, in somewhat hostile territory, and I also learned a ...
