Re: Why learn music theory?

I agree that is worth knowing music theory. And knowing it in detail can only make your life as an artist/producer easier and much richer. But knowing music theory does not mean follow music theory. Its even worse if you are afraid to break some rules in searching for original results. You want some...

Re: io.gnu.linux Distribution

I have only one big issue in one overall well crafted multimedia distribution. And that is that its based on Debian Sid. You simply cannot have a reliable professional multimedia studio experience, based on unstable base. Let the instability to the artist, not to the instruments. I will gladly assis...

Re: Beat making applications for Linux.

Is FLStudio the perfect thing (except for license)? Or are there some other proprietary solutions that you are looking for an open-source equivalent? I'm still trying to grasp exactly what kind of workflow you are looking for. Hello fellows, Allow me to give you and example of what i am trying to a...

Re: Beat making applications for Linux.

I think LMMS is actively developed. What are missing features you would need? I have high hopes for the next big release of LMMS aka 1.2.0 Its hard to explain what particular feature i need. I have some memories of what FLStudio could do, but that is it. And Ardour 6 is coming soon and hopefully wi...

Re: Beat making applications for Linux.

Not sure what you mean by "beat making", but if you're willing to go "closed source / commercial" By beat making i mean the general concept of producing the drum and the rhythm section of a song. Imagine everything from Hip-Hop and Funk to Various styles of electronic music. In ...

Re: Beat making applications for Linux.

Ardour is implementing something called Beatbox in the future (Ardour 7?).... ...Ardour or Qtractor with several instances of drumkv1 or one instance of LSP multisampler would get the job done also. This is good news. Its those kind of alternatives i want to learn more about here. Thanks Lilith Rea...

Re: KXRepos and Debian - Am I screwed?

The approach of KXStudio repositories is quite successful. From my observations the repos contains in themselves independent and self-sufficient audio targeted ecosystem, that can be nested onto (almost) any APT based Linux distribution. And Debian stable provides the rock solid stable base for one'...

Re: Skip the ISO and focus on documentation?

Hi FalkTX I want to step in to support the new user. Someone who just heard that Linux Audio is a thing, and we have such powerful tools like linux-rt, jack, wine, our own audio plugins like lv2, dssi, etc. On the other hand Apple has out-of-the-box experience, popularity and they doesn't need to be...

I tried Linux Mint 19-Beta a moment ago. There is a very neat collection of applications. It seems like they took care of many key parts of a complete Desktop environment experience. Usually i have a problem with screen tearing with Xorg. I need to modify the Intel 2D video driver, by making a custo...
