VLC to start using JACK in AUTO?

If I want to hear VLC audio while JACK is running I need to set "Audio" to "Jack" in VLC preferences, save, exit and relaunch.

Is there a way to have VLC latch itself to JACK automatically while "Auto" is in prefs instead of "Jack"?

How to start 2 files at once with Jack?

Using JACK I want to start a file loaded into VLC (to be monitored) by hitting the record button in Audacity. If it is possible to concurrently start an audio file loaded into Audacity AS WELL that would be super.

Thing is I've never done this with Jack.

Choir hang in Rosegarden

Using Suse TW, Rosegarden-17.04, qSynth-0.3.8 and one Gen-Midi #52 "Aah Choir" track among less than a dozen others. The choir staff is populated in the first and the last third but is supposed to be silent in the middle third. Problem is that it fails to silence at the end of the first third and su...

[Dropped] Re: Hydrogen notes on track-staff in Rosegarden

I tried everything, even with a level of success but finally reverted to the departure condition with the higher note ignored beacuse the midi is just plain badly done. I cannot edit it, ain't no drummer, it suffices for my needs. Thanks for the help al the same. I learned a few things in the proces...

Re: Hydrogen notes on track-staff in Rosegarden

Thank you Pablo! If you load General Midi kit and the MIDI file is I did load the Gmkit into Hydrogen, the only other stock kit is TR808 (whatever that is) and it gives the same results. Not sure about: programmed to the General MIDI protocol ?? I imported the midi into Rosegarden where I work on t...

Hydrogen notes on track-staff in Rosegarden

I've just started using Hydrogen as a plugin to which to assign drum tracks. Beginning with importing a midi file into Rosegarden, setting up jack and other syths, I next assign each track to a virtual instrument. The drum track is just like any other midi track and is missing the usual drum notatio...

Re: Can U id this guitar?

What a nice guitar. To bad you don't have it anymore. Reminds me at my first. A good quality late 70's Les Paul. Then the time came playing electic didn't interest me anymore (and girls interested me more) and i exchanged it for an accoustic. Now i wished i still had that one. :| Yet again, the acc...

Re: Can U id this guitar?

I went to do a search online and I feel like it looks an awful lot like the 1956/57 Hofner Club 50 . Except for the f-holes it sure looks like it. Now that I can see the pu's against a light background I remember them, I think you could pull those black plastic covers off. I didn't have an amp for ...

Re: Can U id this guitar?

Cool guitar. Looks like a Hofner or a Framus with that control plate. It was one of the first electrics and I bought it '59. I vaguely remember a pair of really weird & narrow pu's on it. I wonder what it would be worth today? My brother passed away not long ago, I should have asked him who he gave...

Re: KxStudio into Debian?

I got the repo-tree sorted out, and I've started both the Tumblewed and Jesie procedures all over again. Also managed to import the KxStudio repos into Synaptic this time (after installing the prerequisite 'apt-transport-https' package). Then I installed wineasio rpm in Tumbleweed without any appare...

Re: identify this guitarware?

I don't know how to thank you glowrak guy, for writing up a guide like that! The best thankyou? # Pound that record button til it bleeds 64th note runs, and pass it on :wink: (Honesty, if I don't write things down every so often, it all starts getting fuzzy, and I then i wind up getting demoted :sh...

Re: identify this guitarware?

I don't know how to thank you glowrak guy, for writing up a guide like that! Should I be successful I'll certainly come back and write up a detailed one for Suse users. It looks like my Debian install will move forward too so I won't be short on things to do :lol:
