Re: Airtop fanless linux computer

OK, My mistake. I didn't look closely at the processor series.
People are using 'cores' and 'threads' so interchangeably these days it's hard to keep up - and some CPU monitor software shows hyperthreaded processors as separate cores. The problem is just as bad with AMD CPUs :(

Re: Airtop fanless linux computer

Where does it mention 8 core?
It's not in the spec I saw.

Re: Airtop fanless linux computer

Quad core hyperthreaded is a no for me. For heavy floating point work i.e. audio, that's effectively a dual core device. Looks like it major target is industrial, which tends to be continuous low demand, with just bursts of high. P.S. It might be worse than dual core if two processors want to access...

Re: Humanizing MIDI notes in MusE Sequencer

It's not often I enter MIDI notes by hand, but when I do, I work in a piano-roll editor and the first thing I do is switch quantisation off

Re: MusE 3 git updates

Maybe obvious questions, but are you install or working from userspace? (I don't know if muse can work from userspace). If installing are you doing an uninstall before trying to build and install the new one? Do you somehow have more than one version installed? You might need to hunt around and clea...

I've had probs with MusE by not doing clean builds ie doing a `git pull` but then not going a `make clean` in the build dir before building.
Ha! So it's not just me that does that then :roll:

Hi.
Nice to see you here.
That's an interesting combination of people, instruments and technology.
Oh, and if you're a rank amateur have a wash and you can be an unranked one like the rest of us :lol:

Hi Jack A crusty old Valve (tube) Jockey here in the UK :) First experience was with the grey metalised AC series, then the red tops EF3x. I once had my hands on a bespoke amp that someone made that had four KT88s. That was quite a beast once a friend and I got it working again. Also worked on valve...

Re: No MIDI sound with Rosegarden

Do you know if there is a LUG (Linux User Group) near you? I can't help thinking there is something basic you are missing for some reason, that a hands-on would sort out quite quickly. That's not to say you are doing anything wrong, just that those of us using Linux for a long time tend the forget h...

Re: Hello all

Qsynth is just a nicely packaged sample player with a few extras, so has a pretty simple mode of operation. 'Proper' synths actually build the sounds so are far more capable, but of course, with that comes complexity. It takes time. Start with simple sounds, then explore :) Oh, and as soon as you he...

Re: Hello all

Some people get very upset over comparisons between Yoshimi & ZynAddSubFX, so I simply say try both and go with what suits you best.

Re: Hello all

Qsynth comes with a GM soundfont, but you can add many more. Just search for sf2 soundfont (the type Qsynth wants to see). A few years ago I entered a KVR contest where we had to use at least one 'toy' sound. I found several including 'Magical Music Box', 'Cimealong' & 'Cathedral Toy Organ' :) Yoshi...

Re: Hello all

Welcome from me too. Agree with asbak about needing to spend some time on initial setup. However, the good news is that once you're done, your system will be very reliable. Re: yoshimi not starting. Older versions would fail without apparent warning if jack was not running - although if you launch i...
