Re: Here's one I produced earlier

Thanks again. It seems a nice neck of the woods here so I guess I'll hang around :)

Re: Strange difference

Thanks. That was it. I don't know how I missed it (new glasses needed?) I can finally make this the default on my DAW and retire squeeze :)

Re: Xruns on linux mint 17.2 and kxstudio software

Have you looked at your bios power management? If it's stepping the CPU clock speed that will almost certainly cause xruns.

Re: Strange difference

No. That's not it. Checking with synaptic kernel 4.1 simply isn't listed at all, and yes, I did remember to update the repositories.

Re: Regular disk drive vs. Solid-state

I don't think USB sticks have the same level of protection as SSDs. Also, as well as being slower, you also have the USB bottleneck to contend with. Might be OK for loading apps or saving complete files, but I wouldn't want to trust active data read/writes to them. Incidentally, I read recently, tha...

Strange difference

I have two 64bit machines. One an Intel the other AMD. Both had debian jessie installed in exactly the same way. Within the last couple of days I followed the instructions to add the KX repositories, again in exactly the same way. However, on the Intel machine I've been able to install the 4.1 preem...

Re: Ownlife - prog rock tracks

Good contrast in both the tone quality and dynamics in each half. Timing a little suspect in a couple of places in the quieter part.
Keep on rockin'

Re: seeking HW advice for new SW project

Just a few notes on the hardware side. In general, for impedance you want to go low to high so a 10k ohm output into a 100k input is fine. The other way round might be a problem. This is especially true of passive pickups which is why guitar amp inputs are usually around 1Meg. Special cases are some...

Re: Here's one I produced earlier

Thanks a lot. I can't honestly say I've studied synthesis a lot. Basic additive seemed pretty straight-forward, and for subtractive there's info all round the 'net. Paul Nasca's Padsynth is something I still don't fully understand! When it came to creating sounds, at first i used to try to find one ...

Re: [Poll] The Future of Rakarrack

Plugins don't suit my workflow at all so I'd hope to see standalone Rakarrack kept up. I don't use it a lot - cos I don't play guitar much, but I do also use it for some vocal processing, and very occasionally harmonica!

Re: Is Native Instruments Komplete Audio 6 a good choice?

A bit late to the party, but just want to say I've had my KA6 for about a year and it has worked flawlessly and completely hassle free, connected to desktops and laptops (and even an EeePC910) :)

Re: Debian 8 (jessie)

As a matter of curiosity, what do people call low latency? My usual test for kernels is to play your 'wind & surf' preset as fast as I can, with the sustain pedal down, and measure how long it takes to pop the circuit breaker :wink: :D So when are you releasing your new tracks 'Storms at Sea' and '...

Here's one I produced earlier

This track employs my normal style of composition, playing a MIDI keyboard straight into Rosegarden, and building up tracks organically. As usual it uses only Rosegarden and Yoshimi. Oh, and all the patches are my own :) Occasionally I'll copy/paste tracks, but that tends to be just the backing sect...

Re: Festige webpage

I suspect something has changed in wine itself. At work there are two windows programs that don't seem to work on 64 bit machines with the version that ships with debian after wheezy, but are OK on 32 bit machines.
