Re: Linux Distro to make music with an old PC

How skilled are you with GNU/Linux? If you have intermediate skills, I recommend Debian with LxQt. Unfortunately, I'm a beginner... Even if you're not skilled I can recommend Debian 10 (codename 'Buster'). Installs easy and with the Mate desktop environment it looks and feels just like any OS that ...

Re: Bitwig Studio 3.0 is out now.

Just bought it and a have a new Lenovo Yoga 730 with tough screen on the way. Switching from a Windows/Ableton setup. Still haven't desided on which distro to use though. Anyone with similar setup got some recommendations? (I'm a seasoned Linux user, using Mint on most pcs for coding) Use one that ...

I don't think that's really needed. And if he upgrades the memory in this machine then the CPU will be the bottleneck.

Re: Audient ID4 buggy after Firmware update? (1.03)

I have an Audient ID4 and use it on my Linux machine since 6 months or so. I had no problems before but after I updated the driver with Windows 7 a few days ago, the device stops playing any audio trough USB after running for an hour or two, Recording still works though. I have to unplug it for a s...

Thanks for that tip! They appear to be LV2 plugings that can be used w/ Carla too (except fort the low/high pass filter...).

Re: Linux Distro to make music with an old PC

If it only has 1GB of RAM it's probably 32 bit hardware. That cuts your options down but there are still 32 bit versions of distros available e.g. AV Linux : http://www.bandshed.net/avlinux/ Considering 32 bit support from the AV Linux distribution. Quote from their hom page: AV Linux 2019.4.10 has...

Re: Linux Distro to make music with an old PC

That funny. I recently picked up my old Asus eeePC 901 again. Thought that it's small form factor might make quick multi-track recording easy. It has one 32 bit processor (Intel Atrom) at 1.6 GHz. And only 1 GB of RAM. And 11 GB of disk space (I added a cheap external 32 GB SD card). Still works per...

Re: Audacity works fine, Rosegarden does not

Welcome to these forums! I've started up Rosegarden and the "welcome screen" says that it uses Jack for recording and playback. If you want I can try to "explain" in my own amateurish words what Jack is, but for now just assume that a lot of audio applications use it as their aud...

Re: New distro suggestions and tips please!!! :D

This is all pretty confusing to follow. If you have the kxstudio repos installed then install cadence and catia. Run cadence, go in to the setup pages and select your card (other defaults should be fine for now), go to the main cadence window and start jack from there. Go to the pulseaudio bridge f...
