Is falkTX gone?

In his last post, falkTX said he was taking his final action on this forum and hasn't posted since. That was over two weeks ago. Did we lose him? That would be very disappointing if we did.

Re: Ardour - support only for official builds?

I am calling BS here. The Ardour bugtracker has 2600+ open entries some that are untouched for 10y+ years. http://tracker.ardour.org/view_all_bug_page.php?filter=82504&page_number=54 This is not how a healthy open source project looks like. This is not how Professional Support looks like. I don't t...

Re: harrison plugins within kxstudio/ardour

@jonetsu Can you elaborate what you mean by the VST versions of the Harrison plugins? I though they were only available in LV2 format pre-bundled with Mixbus (the new AVA line is an exception, but you said you weren't using those). When I purchased them, the only things I downloaded were the license...

Re: SPL Crimson 3, RME UC, RME Babyface Pro & Linux

I would go with the SPL Crimson 3. RME stuff is hit or miss if it is Linux compatible, and even if you can get basic in/out capabilities, the internal routing and DSP is unlikely to be accessible from a Linux OS if controlled by software. The SPL Crimson 3 is entirely controlled by hardware as far a...

Re: Summer Hit? Summer Hit!

It is a good melody that you iterated several ways, but there should be more parts. As it stands, the song is a single melody that repeats over and over again. Add a complimentary second part in between the breaks and a bridge near the end of the song, and I think the melody will become a lot more p...

Re: Guitar Virtual Instrument for Linux ?

I had to use proprietary LinuxSampler. It's mostly GPL but backend license prohibits commercial use so it is proprietary. This statement is not correct. "Proprietary" refers to ownership. For example, Windows is a proprietary OS because it is owned by Microsoft. Kontakt is a proprietary sampler bec...

Re: AV Linux 2018... what kernel do ya want for default??

My vote would be to ship the RT Kernal by default and provide instructions and the low latency kernel for the NVIDIA users who need it. Maintain the focus on performance. Few distributions ship with a RT kernel by default; it is one your project's standout characteristics in my opinion.

Re: Question for Zoom R16 owners using Fedora as well

You don't go into much detail about what your stability issues are, but I think a more sensible approach would be to upgrade to Linux Mint 18 before switching to a different distribution. I believe LM18 comes with a 4.10 kernel, which should solve your Zoom R16 compatibility issues, and if you like ...

Re: MUSICHA- A pre-crowdfunding Linux audio laptop

I wish you the best of luck with your product, but I am also struggling to understand its use-case. 1 XLR and 4 TS inputs seems limited. If a user is forced to have another piece of gear to plug into your USB interface in order to meet their needs (i.e. additional mic pres, Hi-Z inputs, etc.), I thi...

Re: Damn, *which* USB interfaces actually work with KXStudio/Ubuntu????

An audio interface that is listed as "USB Class Compliant" will function on Linux. If it works with an iPad or requires no drivers on OSX, those are signs the device is class compliant.

Re: Recommended motherboards

I like ASUS's stuff. I have owned two laptops and a desktop motherboard by them, and they were all compatible with various distros out-of-the-box. I also remember seeing online a specialty computer designed for pro-audio/DAW usage (running Windows), and its motherboard was an ASUS, if that means any...

Why is this topic stuck at the top of the subforum rather than moving down in the list in chronological order like other topics? Is it a setting on my end, or is it the same for others?
