Re: Haven: Keep Watch - Snowden’s New App (GPLv3)

There's nothing more that needs to be read or understood apart from the simple, basic, universal truth that Android is a spy platform designed and built from the ground up by Google (who has very close connections to the Pentagon & CIA) to spy on and collect intel on you. 24/7/365. That is just the ...

Re: Need a new Linux-compatible audio Interface

The Bandshed list is somewhat useful but if they'd bothered to read reports on here (and elsewhere I'm sure) they'd have known about a lot more devices. The old EMU 0404 PCI card (possibly also the PCI-Express version but I haven't tested that one) works great under Linux and the audio quality is ex...

Re: Librem 5 - smartphone based on Debian > android-free \o/

They are San Francisco based so there's the first hint at potential trouble. Why :?: It's a super expensive city and that will be reflected in the pricing of the product. Linux & Open Source products at premium corporate rates just doesn't feel right. Hmm. question: Which companies actually think o...

Re: Haven: Keep Watch - Snowden’s New App (GPLv3)

Maybe I don't understand your contribution or wrongly, but I live in Germany where - an example of many in world history - something like this (control) was tried around 1930. Germany 2018 is a STASI Police State. Not much has changed in that regard. Nor will it, for the forseeable future. By the w...

Re: Librem 5 - smartphone based on Debian > android-free \o/

The concept is nice but their prices are not exactly in keeping with the Open Source community spirit. They are San Francisco based so there's the first hint at potential trouble. I also sure hope this isn't some Tech equivalent of buying supermarket "organic" and "ethically sourced" food, where vir...

Re: What tools are you missing

A LV2 or VST host where a patch handling implementation is actually usable. Blame the LV2 specification. It's shocking how something as basic/fundamental as data storage/organization is so horrendously ill-conceived and unwieldy. But then, he did make the absurd choice of turtle for a storage forma...

Re: Convert Mint to KXStudio. Cinnamon vs mate?

Does somebody use vanilla Mint without the KXSTudio repositories? Either Mate or Cinnamon should be fine. I'm using a Mint 16.04 Cinnamon system without KXStudio but loaded to the brim with Linux audio apps including many of those packaged with KXStudio. The more relevant things to worry about are ...

Re: Updated list of Linux compatible audio interfaces

The old Emu 0404 PCI works well in Linux, the PCIe model may also work? Do your own research.

Re: Looking for pci sound card with wavetable connector for ubuntu studio

I have no idea what a wavetable connector is but the Emu 0404 PCI soundcard can load soundfonts, if you really want to go down that route. They can sometimes be found on the market for very little money because... they are PCI and not many people have computers with PCI slots any longer. It was supe...

Re: Need a new Linux-compatible audio Interface

There are many options, it depends on budget and what one wants to accomplish. If on a budget then I don't know of anything that beats a Behringer UCA202 for price vs performance (decent sound quality, good quality components, low latency) on a Linux box. It used to be possible to get them for about...

Re: Xruns with Windows VSTs

Users have different requirements. - For many hobbyists and dabblers, having the occasional xrun whilst running at high audio latencies is a win & a result. For them, this means that things are "working". - For musicians who want instruments & fx to work w. low latencies and who may want to or need ...
