Re: Xruns on linux mint 17.2 and kxstudio software

Oh dear.
This is very likely your problem :(
Everything that uses usb is contending for access.
Have you tried using the on-board sound? I wouldn't be surprised if it actually performed better!

Re: Xruns on linux mint 17.2 and kxstudio software

Just thought of something else to check
lsusb

This will show all your usb devices and which bus they are on.

Is anything else on the same bus as your babyface?

Re: Xruns on linux mint 17.2 and kxstudio software

Interesting. You initially said it was a dual core machine, but it's showing up as a quad core! Anyway it doesn't look like cpu speed/stepping is an issue. I wonder if it's an interrupt contention problem between (say) network and usb sound. I take it you have wireless enabled. Try disabling it in t...

Re: Xruns on linux mint 17.2 and kxstudio software

Whilst I have every sympathy with your issues here I'd like to add a little perspective. At LAC2015 I ran a new dual core i5 laptop with a stock debian install for over an hour and a half while demonstrating Yoshimi, making lots of very significant changes and playing a MIDI keyboard. Near the end o...

Roesgarden 15.10

Thought this might be of interest :) The Rosegarden team is pleased to announce the release of version 15.10 of Rosegarden, an audio and MIDI sequencer and musical notation editor for Linux. One tester comments, "You'll be pleased to know that this puts Rosegarden ahead of all the other sequencers I...

Re: Rosegarden stops accepting MIDI input

This is a known problem and due to the timer that Rosegarden uses by default.
Change it to your sound card and you'll be fine :)

Edit->Preference->MIDI->Sequencer Timing Source

I use PCM capture 0-0-1

Edit.
There is a new release out now, which has various bug fixes. That may also help.

Re: Hi from London UK!

Thanks for the welcome peeps :)
I've used the handle Folderol all over the place, but the first time I remember hearing the word was as a kid where some comic singers sang it when they (supposedly) forgot the words, ending up with them singing nothing but folderol :)

Re: how 2 find/create a midi/rosegarden/paper bass track?

Why not try playing along to the original? Cut out short sections and loop them in (say) audacity, then play a keyboard till it sounds the same. Once you've got it right, record that section in any of the MIDI aware sequencers. Rinse and repeat. When you have the whole thing to your satisfaction cor...

Re: Xruns on linux mint 17.2 and kxstudio software

Traditional musicians? A family friend (long gone now) was a professional pipe organist, and played in many cathedrals, theatres and even humble village churches. Something I picked up from him was the need to play to what an instrument can achieve. Apparently, a 32ft pedal F can have a rise time of...

Re: Xruns on linux mint 17.2 and kxstudio software

I do think people get too hung up on latency. Speed of sound through air at room temperature is about 340m/S or 34cm / milisec, so if you are a metre away from you speakers you already have a latency of around 3mS. Live musicians on stage are likely to be 2 to 3 metres away, yet they don't seem to h...

Re: I regret updating to Debian Testing

I got bitten by that in the days of sarge and ended up with a completely borked machine. The only answer was wipe & re-install which was not so easy in those days. Now I won't touch testing until it's well down the line - almost about to become the new stable.
