Re: Looking for a good quality Audio interface... for cheap...

The ADA8200 just adds 8 more ins and outs, not necessary if you don't need them. The UMC1820 is also Class Compliant, so no additional work is needed to get it recognized on Linux. On AVLinux, it is ready to go upon startup. Ardour sees it as a MIDI device, but I do not have MIDI cables to plug into...

Re: Looking for a good quality Audio interface... for cheap...

I own the Behringer UMC1820 (the FCA1616's replacement model) and am happy with it. I have an ADA8200 connected to it via ADAT which gives me 16 ins and outs with no fuss. I haven't tried hooking up a MIDI device to its ports yet as I mainly record live instruments.

Re: SCARLETT 3RD GEN just announced

I didn't see in the announcement any mention of the 3rd generation units being compatible with iOS, so it may not even be Class Compliant. It is difficult to say from the control panel's release notes, but even if it is, who knows how long it will be before the internal mixer software is reverse eng...

Re: Ubuntu 19.10 To Drop 32-Bit x86 Packages

Steam may be well aware of the reality of the situation, and still be looking for another distro. I don't know, but you'd think they would have channels of communication with Ubuntu, and not rely on third party blogs. I'm sure Steam devs and Ubuntu devs are talking directly to each other. I was jus...

Re: Ubuntu 19.10 To Drop 32-Bit x86 Packages

This was purely bad reporting by bloggers, not a change of mind or miscommunication from the Ubuntu devs. Here is the final paragraph of the original announcement. I'm guessing the bloggers had stopped reading and were already typing out their assumptions and misinterpretations before reaching this:...

Re: Which DAW to pick?

Connect guitar to DI-box, from di-box to audio interface, there to guitarix and then to daw. And sure, I would record both raw signal and guitarix-made, so that in case there is some fiddling with sounds, there is still raw signal available. <…> So you are recording with guitarix but listening some...

Re: Notation editor that supports piano tabs?

I had never heard of piano tab before now, but I looked it up, and I agree with the prior post that you are better off taking it slow and learning the proper way. I don't think you will find any software that incorporates piano tab given it is not standard notation. I think time spent practicing sig...

Re: Sitala drum plugin

It appears you are using the binary from ardour.org on Ubuntu 18.10. The plugin is designed to work with the Ubuntu-packaged version of Ardour on Ubuntu 18.04.

Re: Sitala drum plugin

I don't think Ardour's packaging is bad or questionable, just different in its purpose. The binaries from ardour.org aim to be distro-agnostic with the expectation that plugins be distro-agnostic as well. You have chosen to package your plugin to be distro-specific, which means it will be compatible...

Re: Beginner question about KXStudio

I take responsibility for derailing this thread with my first post, so I'd like to finish by saying, as far as I am concerned, the side line of discussion ended with khz's last post. His thoughtful words are a nice way to close, so I'm leaving it there.

@AlexTheBassist, I think you are talking to yourself at this point. You are taking this in a direction no one else is following.

Re: Beginner question about KXStudio

It sounds a bit condescending, almost as if you are telling the poster, "Use Google, idiot". I thought the original question was reasonable to ask here. How come that is bad? So, now it's okay to post idiotic shit on forums, like: “I'm a total dumbster and can't even wipe my ass without assistance,...
