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...

Re: Future Linux audio hardware Interface support

USB 2.0 is capable of delivering the speed necessary to move audio in and out of a computer. USB 3.0 would increase the bandwidth, but being USB 2.0 can handle 32 channels in and 32 out, that satisfies the requirements of most people using USB audio interfaces. If you need more than 32 channels in e...

Re: ur22 steinberg usb interface

Steinberg's website provides a driver for Mac OSX, suggesting it is not USB class compliant. There is nothing in their advertising I saw stating it is compatible with an iPad, either. Sorry, but the device may not be compatible with Linux operating systems.

Re: M-Audio 1010LT S/pdif input?

Is it the Lindy 70408, or the Lindy 70409? What is the other system where this converter works ok? When you connect your CD player to the card, is that a direct connection (i.e. the CD player has a S/PDIF output you are plugging into the 1010LT's S/PDIF input), or is the CD player the device you are...

@Digital Black, what are you plugging into the S/PDIF input?

Steinberg VST 3.6.7 SDK Code

I found this pretty awesome and unexpected:

http://mixbus.harrisonconsoles.com/foru ... -4081.html

https://github.com/steinbergmedia/vst3sdk

Steinberg released the VST3 SDK code with a dual-license, one of them being the GNU General Public License (v3). Kudos, Steinberg!

Re: ADAT USB device

The 2nd Generation Focusrite Scarletts work as class compliant devices, but the internal routing is not supported by ALSA at this time. The 1st Generation Scarletts are fully supported. The situation is similar with the Presonus 1818VSL; the internal DSP does not function on Linux. The Behringer dev...

Re: Free software & money

When there are no free alternatives, it is a moral duty of any knowledgeable person to remove DRM and put unrestricted version on torrent sites. You talk as if humankind is owed the source code of any program ever written, and any author who doesn't hand it over deserves to have it stolen. Free sof...
