Re: (SOLVED) USB(midi) issue when booting ubuntu 14.01 on la

Indeed good to know - I want to do exactly that and to go up to 5m/16ft for my next project (Korg nanopad2 attached to guitar)

Re: A tracker that saves as Protracker MOD

Did you try Milkytracker?

Description says "editing .MOD files" - not sure how this works in practice though...

Re: rc.local help

Hi,

I didn't get the full grasp of what you're doing, but it looks like you're wiping out the log with the last line.

Code: Select all

echo all working > /home/xxx/bootcheck.txt
should be instead

Code: Select all

echo all working >> /home/xxx/bootcheck.txt
BR,

Re: USB interface latency

@Crocoduck: that upgrade should indeed be welcome. the model model you're eying seems to have a better than average designed cooling system, as per the review from those guys: http://www.notebookcheck.net/Review-Lenovo-IdeaPad-U430-Touch-Ultrabook.100623.0.html Their reviews are usually quite thorou...

Re: JACK over ethernet network?

Good to hear this net thing actually works with decent performance.
Still scratching my head about possible use cases though...

Re: Guitar Re-Amping with Audio Interface (Scarlett 2i2, Jam

Hi joei666, While I can't provide a definitive answer to either of your questions, I suspect none of those will work on Linux. So you'll probably save yourself some hassle by reviewing your signal chain and going as much as possible with a class compliant USB interface and native Linux applications....

Re: USB interface latency

Actually it's quite interesting that you get better latency with the Mobile-Pre which is a USB1 interface. This really points to to the USB controller, cable or possibly the driver... Going back to Paul question: since he's playing from a midi keyboard -> Computer -> 2i2, we should be able to deduct...

Re: USB interface latency

Ok, I finally ran a proper latency test on the 2i2 with a mono patch cable (tested both with with jack_delay and jack_iodelay) - config cpu: core i5 3317u (ivy bridge) with turbo boost disabled in the BIOS and locked at max frequency with "cpupower frequency-set -g performance" Kernel: stock arch ke...

Re: Midi patchbay with preset function?

+1 for qjackctl's patch bay. It can store audio or midi connections as presets and switch between them easily. Adding one tip from the Arch wiki that I found handy: "You can automate starting of a2jmidid by adding to QjackCtl Setup > Options > Execute script after Startup: /usr/bin/a2jmidid -e &" BR...

That's for the Dj Console Mk1 - different device.

Re: Mixxx DJ Hardware Guide: list of sound cards & controlle

Hi Be. Nice that you tackle the long overdue Mixxx controller documentation update. I just had a look and have some comments regarding the Hercules DJ Console RMX (1st gen): This one deserves a warning - the wiki shouldn't give the wrong assumption that it works out of the box with HID or MIDI on Li...

Re: USB interface latency

@CrocoDuck: this is indeed very interesting. Thanks for shedding some light. I don't think crosstalk will be too much of an issue for 2i2 owners, but the clock jitter might be since it causes higher latencies. Out of curiosity, what is the best roundtrip latency achievable with your config? (without...

Re: USB interface latency

Agree. This sounds more like a cadence setup issue than a hardware limitation. Make sure you use the same buffer size and period number when you switch device in Cadence. Keeping in mind that you may always hear a small latency when comparing with the integrated piano speakers, with this config you ...

Re: USB interface latency

The Scarlett 2i2 is probably the best price/quality ratio you can find in the prosumer market at the moment, I can't believe an integrated notebook sound card would perform better - despite the USB bus. Not even mentioning the DAC quality. Going to a more expensive sound card will most likely not so...
