Re: Linux-Based Low-Latency Multichannel Audio System

Very interesting, and looks useful, but a couple for questions. The frequency response looks strange for audio work. At the HF end -3dB looks to be about 60kHz, and at LF 5Hz. Isn't this likely to encourage problems with out-of-band input signals? What are the band limits for THD and noise? Is it we...

Yes. That's quite right. It's done to reduce fly-by-nights, and encourage people to join in the forums and support each other :)

Re: My Second Song: "Roamin' 'round the World"

You'll get honest comments from them, and they are quite OS agnostic. However they do expect it to be a two-way street.
You'll also find some of them pop up on Soundcloud, BandCamp etc. so after a while people get known.

I sometimes post on the Internet Archive. It's a simple but very good store and player. I then link to that from such as KVR

I thought tbhis was a bit slow starting, but very much enjoyed it once it really got going. Nice work :)

Re: Control instrument choice of yoshimi, fluidsynth, timidity

Keep going. You'll get there :) As for the richness of sound, that is all down to the work done by Paul Nasca. When he did the original sound designs he was one of the few people who recognised that real sounds are never a single frequency, but always a band of frequencies that interact with each ot...

Re: Control instrument choice of yoshimi, fluidsynth, timidity

If you are familiar with NRPNs you can set up vector control, whereby just two user defined CCs give X/Y control of 4 linked instruments. Default is any combination of Volume, Panning, Brightness. Details are in yoshimi's doc directory.

Re: Control instrument choice of yoshimi, fluidsynth, timidity

I don't think here is the right place to go into the reasons for the split, however (while still instrument compatible) Zyn and Yoshi are going in different directions. The current version of Yoshimi is 1.3.9. The one you have is very old. All the up-to-date distros carry the new version, or yuo can...

Re: How to add drums to a meandering rhythm.

I use the Rosegarden sequencer and always hold tracks in MIDI form. The method I use sometimes for both percussion and counter melodies is to copy the track with the most notes into a new track, then without moving anything 'sideways' cut out the ones that don't appear where I want them, then move t...

Yoshimi - Skylark

Yoshimi 1.3.9, that is :) This is another consolidation release (although there are a few new features). With people, and some distros moving to GCC 6 we felt we should make sure we are squeaky clean, as this is much more pedantic regarding code correctness. Our new version has been extensively test...

Re: Rosegarden: "Out of processor power for real-time audio processing. Cannot continue."

Have you tried muting some of the tracks?
Are you using any plugins?
I don't know your machine. What's the processor? speed? cores?
Try asking on the Rosegarden list? They are usually pretty helpful.

This is plug-and-play for Yoshimi. There have been messages on our list from two users saying so.

Re: Any RPM Challenge people out there? Here's mine.

Really enjoyed these. Nice range of styles and well produced. I played right through them all, and that is something I very seldom do! :D
