Re: How do you choose your music distributor - e.g. CD Baby, DistroKid, TuneCore?

I'm going to ask other distributors about the Content ID . https://www.orfium.com/ is new to me. How do you compare it to CD Baby and Distro Kid (the most popular as of now)? Yes. This is something I always do now. Ask them the requirements for releasing a claim. RouteNote make it way too easy so a...

Re: How do you choose your music distributor - e.g. CD Baby, DistroKid, TuneCore?

Update on my research: Soundrop is best (and free) option for free auto-split payments. I'm going to check them out. I'm always looking at these services to see who looks best. And just a note on RouteNote for anyone considering them - they're crap with how they handle Content ID claims. All someon...

Re: One month and counting without RT kernel on Arch Linux

Interesting! I'll try this out when my distro provides 4.19 (not far off now). I think the low latency kernel may cause some occasional instabilities on my system so I've been thinking of trying out the regular kernel again anyway. Thanks for reporting :)

Re: Where can I get classic wavetables or extract them from db files?

In the last link I posted, in the left menu there are multiple entires like bw_saw, bw_tri or bw_squ. These are bandlimited saw, triangle or square waves. Can't be more classic than that :? Yeh, some of them do look familiar actually. They weren't in the pack I downloaded though. Those packs were s...

Re: noise in line

First of all, check what bit depth you're recording at. If your soundcard can do 24 bit, then use it. That'll lower the noise floor. Try not to record too quietly either as that causes more audible noise in the recording. But obviously don't go above 0db when you record because that will cause nasty...

Re: Where can I get classic wavetables or extract them from db files?

I went through them all and they're not the kind of thing I'm looking for. I'm mostly looking for classic sawtooth wavetables really. But some other shapes would be nice also. I don't remember hearing anything like that in that pack :/ I did check them all..

Re: Can't play media files

First of all, when you get asked if you're root, that usually means you need to run the command with 'sudo' at the start. So what you should've done is ran sudo apt-get install pulseaudio-module-jack I somehow got Jack setup to output all system sounds so I can always use Jack. I cannot bloody tell ...

Re: Where can I get classic wavetables or extract them from db files?

Thanks. I've downloaded the Zebra 2 pack but it doesn't look like there's any classic analogue synth samples in there :/ There are some FM ones but I can't tell what they're from as the labelling is very vague. I'll have a play with them anyway as there could be some nice sounds in there! But what I...

Re: help me reduce latency

You do have Jack setup, right? I have a more powerful computer and I normally use 44.1khz and 512 sample buffer with the low latency kernel. My latency is reported to be 11.6ms, although I might find it's a little higher if I did a loopback test, not sure. Anyway, if I want lower latency then I can ...

Re: What does the audio interface do?

Yeh you can definitely get started without one. I just used my onboard soundcard for months. But it had crap latency and I couldn't play stuff in by hand without it being really sloppy because of it. Once you find yourself needing any of the following - it's time to buy an audio interface: Headphone...

Where can I get classic wavetables or extract them from db files?

I've recently switched from Omnisphere 2 to Zebra 2 but I really miss using some of the classic, analogue & FM synth wavetables from Omnisphere 2. There's a program called 'wave2zebra' (https://www.kvraudio.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=31&t=413529&p=6147139#p6147139) which lets you drop in files (I'm a...

Re: Tips for EDM production in Linux

I'm not quite sure what you mean by an "explosive" drum track. But after years of doing this stuff I've learned that there isn't really a special trick for anything. It's all about understanding what you've got and what it needs to get it to sound how you want, as vague as that sounds. Years of prac...

I've ran it on 3.18, 3.19 & 3.20 without any major issues noticed so far. I installed it via Playonlinux also. Which version are you using?

Re: Falsely Configured 24 bit Output(?)

There are no 32-bit audio interfaces, they are either 16- or 24-bit. But 24-bit interfaces use “24 in 32” mode for data transfer, as it's a lot more easy to align data chunks (called buffers in most of multimedia appliances) if each sample is 4 bytes long instead of 3, since computers we use are bi...
