Re: Can somebody demystify JACK for me?

Maybe the first thing to determine is whether you really need JACK. Paul Davis (the original developer of JACK and the primary developer of Ardour) now recommends that people use Ardour5 with ALSA instead of JACK, unless there is a specific reason to use JACK. The short story about why you would us...

Re: Spitfire Audio free sample libraries

There are not a lot of licensing nightmares. And many of those that do exist are because of hardware mismatches, user performance errors, and user configuration follies. I've been pretty lucky on the hardware part, but have slow-danced with the other two a few times too many to have a decent resume'...

Re: Spitfire Audio free sample libraries

Anybody who wants Windows software to be ported to Linux should just open up their email client, write a big letter describing all the problems encountered when using WINE What problems? Properly coded software, that doesn't include some control-freak-calling-home code to authorize the product, wil...

Re: Spitfire Audio free sample libraries

GNU/Linux is still shockingly underestimated among audio software makers, and many of them still think there are zero pro audio users on this platform, so they clearly don't monitor any Linux forums. Pro devs know how many musicians on a given platform will spend $Hundreds of Dollar$ on a suite of ...

Re: Commercial orchestral libraries in linux?

I did an install of SampleTank3 on my new Ubuntu Studio 19..10/wine-staging 4.20 setup where Kontakt 6 is running. The Sampletank gui was not properly loading. I saw in wine terminal output,that libpng12.0 was missing (16.x is in most distros now), so I added the old one in manually. I then remember...

Re: Commercial orchestral libraries in linux?

Login at IK, in the menus Support-->User Area-->My Products there should be a Syntronik Free entry with a serial number, if needed, give that to the Authorization Manager, which you can launch whenever you want to. New sounds can be created from each of the included instruments, I always wanted a Ya...

Re: IKM Custom Shop wine regression?

A lot of the breakages are caused by devs following orders, and delivering account/license managers and products that auto-update, without asking permission of the customer! Keeping backups of the system wine folder, the /home/you/Document folder, and the /home/you/.wine folder can be a safeguard. I...

Happy to say that Native Access is working in 19.10, the software/account manager from Native Instruments installed easily, despite the flood of scary looking terminal output, and I'm using the registered Kontakt among many others, in the native linux Reaper daw, after using linvstconverttree app to...

Re: Sonivox Orchestral Companion - problems with iLok

Both ilok hardware dongle, and software manager, are complex beasts, critcal to limit piracy for developers who sign on. They interact with a supported OS in many ways, and one would need both serious luck, and engineering skills/logic to get it working in wine, based on what I've read the past few ...
