Re: Paul Davis at LAC 2017

Yes, if you KNOW that these boxes exist, if you KNOW that otherwise you will be spyed on, if you KNOW where to find this boxes. When Win 10 came out Joe User didn't know a shit about all that and those boxes were well hidden from him. It took experts looking at their router traffic to find out that...

Re: Ardour 5

I would still hold that in the quest for a stable or functional environment, it's a legitimate approach to move back to something that worked, or at least to prefer to deal with known issues instead of surprise issues, and consciously forgo progress until you yourself decide that you're ready for i...

I'm curious what your reasoning for suggesting this is.

Thanks to you both for your work on this. Good quality, native Linux plugins are not something to take for granted.

Re: Ardour 5

I am still relatively grateful that ardour exists at all, but if I look at it soberly, its position today seems to be beta testing for mixbus, with the somewhat grotesque implication that the only executable version of ardour that its makers would give you to download for free no strings attached, ...

Re: Ardour 5

I don't think the Linux kernel's development process is analogous to Ardour's. The kernel is a base component of the operating system that interfaces software and hardware. Ardour is an application. The kernel has hundreds of contributors whereas Ardour has only two main authors, if I am not mistake...

Interesting stuff. Here's hoping we see the continued expansion of software that runs on Linux.

Re: petition at change.org

Do we think there are "thousands" of people who want to use commercial plugins on Linux as claimed in the petition? I would have guessed the number was in the hundreds worldwide. If you figure an even smaller subset of people would actually end up purchasing any given plugin, I can see why it is tou...

Re: Assembling a dedicated computer to produce goood music

You will have less to setup using AVlinux or KXStudio, for sure. The AMD along with 8gb of RAM should be good.

Re: Assembling a dedicated computer to produce goood music

AVLinux and KXStudio are your best bets for a distro that is pre-configured for audio use, in my opinion. Mint is an excellent example of a polished Linux desktop, but it requires the user to intervene and set up a working JACK/realtime audio environment, which can be a bit a tricky for someone new ...

Re: Assembling a dedicated computer to produce goood music

Keep in mind that if you are planning on using a large amount of plugins and virtual instruments designed for Windows, you are best off using Windows for your operating system. Some Windows software can be run on Linux, but it is not a simple process and doesn't always yield optimal results. Anythin...

Re: Ardour 5

Mixbus 3.6.0 is based on Ardour 4, not Ardour 3. Similarly, Mixbus 4 is based on Ardour 5. The two programs don't follow the same numbering pattern for releases. As far as I know, no version of Mixbus was ever based on Ardour 3, probably due in part to the problems with MIDI data loss that Paul ment...
