Re: Modular DIY midi controller

There's midibox. Many years ago I was looking into making my own and was going to use that but after a lot of research I realised that it was a bit too much work and I would probably never finish it or mess it up somehow and waste a load of money. Midibox seems to be more complicated, and don't kno...

Modular DIY midi controller

I have been looking device for controlling daw, and Akai Midimix seems to be best candidate. However, even with it, there is little bit running out of potentiometers. Livid DS1 would be sufficient, but too expensive for my budget. Considering DIY options I found this: https://github.com/brendan-byrn...

What to use for converting midi to OSC?

I'd like to use midi controller to adjust various things in DAW (Mixbus). Sometimes I want to adjust plugins (at least zynaddsubfx and surge), sometimes Mixbus controls itself. Because amount of possible knobs is higher that number of knobs in midi controller (9 sliders + 8 pots), mappings need to b...

Re: Which DAW to pick?

Connect guitar to DI-box, from di-box to audio interface, there to guitarix and then to daw. And sure, I would record both raw signal and guitarix-made, so that in case there is some fiddling with sounds, there is still raw signal available. <…> So you are recording with guitarix but listening some...

Re: 804AM - A fragment

Interesting stuff!

I did not realize you could use VCV Rack as 'guitar effect' :-)

Re: Which DAW to pick?

If you try Guitarix, be aware that it uses jack, (except the LV2 plugin). Haven't got this working yet, as I'm not a jack fan. However you can do much with jack, like Rakarrack etc... I really recommend getting familiar with jack. I think in recent ubuntu it was just matter of installing package pu...

Oooooo . . . great idea! Thanks, tavasti! I think I'll get me a DI box.

Just make sure you get DI-box which has direct / thru option. I am not 100% sure all of DI-boxes have it.

Re: Which DAW to pick?

So the other way is: Guitar > interface > DAW > Guitarix (LV2 plugin). In this setup you have to do your performance without effects, and you record the dry signal into the DAW. Then you can spend as long as you want tweaking the settings in Guitarix to modify the sound. This avoids the latency pro...

Re: Which DAW to pick?

Vote for Ardour also from here. And if you want best mixing UI, get Mixbus (Ardour with better mixer). They have pretty often discounts, so you can get it for 39$, or sometimes even 29$. https://harrisonconsoles.com/site/mixbus.html And if you start with Ardour, all your files will work also in Mix...

Re: Gah....

If needed, most likely you can get rid of all ubuntustudio packages & repos, and replace stuff with normal ubuntu packages.

And sure, there is always option to build everything you need.
