Re: Help getting started

For drums I would recommend drmr or the black pearl and red zeppelin plugins from gmaq and Robin Gareus. For other sounds like bass, your best bet is to find a good sfz (http://www.bandshed.net/sounds/sfz/ is a good place to start) which you can load into Carla or sfZero.

Re: iRig HD - high input volume

This may be a stupid question, but have you tried turning down the preamp volume on the iRig until it doesn't peak in Carla?

Re: new Ocenaudio editor release with deb9 package

It works great with Jack for me. I much prefer the interface to Audacity and it's more than adequate for my needs.

Re: One-weekend recordings: Friday the 13th

Nice riff!

I really enjoyed the rest of the video too. Brings back fond memories of 4-track tape recorders and doing the best you could with what was available. I remember once recording a vocal through a watering can. Ah, those were the days.

Re: Clarinet

This https://youtu.be/ky018Cs_798 seems to cover the basics. A large diaphragm condenser might be better than a dynamic mic. I'm very happy with my inexpensive Behringer C1. If your room is untreated, it's a good idea to hang some fabric in any way you can around where you're playing to cut down on ...

Re: Guitarix release 0.36.0

Thanks again for all the hard work you do continually improving an already excellent piece of software. I've recently been playing live using Guitarix on an old laptop direct into a PA and it sounds fantastic and is very easy to use.

Re: Searching for piano-roll editor where I can use my own (non-sf2) soundfont

I would suggest using Carla (which uses linuxsampler in the background) instead of linuxsampler itself. In my opinion it's much more user friendly. You could also try Tracktion 6 which is apparently now free and has a pretty good piano roll or Ardour. For string sounds, the sonatino sfz is available...
