Re: Bela Boards: Interesting Low Latency Processors

I'd rather have a slightly larger size, 24-bit audio, fewer channels, and some more standard physical interface options. so, you probably should look at Axoloti Core board ) it's completely different, but does 24bit / 48 kHz audio and nas more connectors (and pins for yet more connections).

Re: Differences between the individual operating systems

This is also the main argument here in Germany: Program xy does not run on Linux. same for ukraine, russia and other ex-USSR countries. Pro Tools, Logic Audio, Cubase, Reaper, Ableton(?), Bitwig(?),...? Then I can't think of any. Pro Tools, Cubase and Ableton are definitely considered industry stan...

Re: Ever used an oscilloscope youself?

it's often very handy when recreating patches from one synth on another.
and very interesting when fiddling with FM synths.

Re: Poll: What samplerate do you use with jack?

...But if all the basic tracks were upsampled to 32/96 and mixed in this domain, using plug-ins running 32/96 etc. and the master eventually downsampled to 16/44.1, then the resulting master would most likely sound a lot better than the original mix, even though both are 16/44.1 hmmm… interesting! ...

Re: Poll: What samplerate do you use with jack?

I didn't know jack couldn't go higher than the hardware. Sorry. :? Indeed i get options up to 192kh (equal to my hardware max specs). Unknown to me if this is standard options for QjackCTL or if this is (my) hardware bounded. even if you set, say, 96k in the settings, but hardware only does 48k, ja...

Re: Poll: What samplerate do you use with jack?

my live setup does not have a DAW at all :mrgreen: since i don't like single-point-of-failure kind of setups of whatever. all recording is done in hardware (and then gets imported to Harrison Mixbus, but mixing / mastering stages are completely another story.) so, the choice is 48k + hardware EQ + h...

Re: Poll: What samplerate do you use with jack?

if you do everything in software — it's no problem to run everything in 96k. in the days of software-only setup i did just the same.
things go complicated if you turn to the hardware side of the force.

Re: Poll: What samplerate do you use with jack?

48k. because it's always possible to downsample when needed, but upsampling is pointless in terms of overall sound quality. and because some of my equipment can't do 96k at all (due to hardware/software limitations) or without turning off some features (because higher sample rate requires extra DSP ...

Re: Upgrade from KXStudio 14.04

from my experiemnce:
if you are using foreign software on wine in your workflow — i'd suggest 16.04.
on 18.04, things that worked flawlessly in 14.04 and 16.04, stopped working for me (e.g. NI FM8, Novation V-Station).

dedicated subforum for foreign software on wine issues

there are quite a lot of topics here and there about running non-linux audio software under wine. the proposition is to make a dedicated place for discussing such kind of issuses. running windows software is the popular practice, and everyone here knows it. (btw, i'm doing it myself too.) moreover, ...

Re: Skip the ISO and focus on documentation?

KXstudio repos are much more important for the whole linux audio community than a conventional ISO-packed distro.
i think, the latter should be considered as a bonus that used to be, nice to have, but could be sacrificed.
