Re: A good jack-compatible audio player who stays connected to the outputs I want?

Why ?

Any player will work if you use a jacksink for pulse audio, and that opens to a wide selection of audio players. I use mpv for instance.

Re: The landscape with the mill

A pretty good piece, well-driven in the composition sense, with good tonal and musical developments. Well-balanced considering the use of acoustic/clean and distorted guitars. The theme is very good and well represented in all its incarnations throughout.

Cheers.

Re: Bitwig Studio 3.0 is out now.

Do not be mistaken though. In "the end" all clips and scenes are recorded in real time into the arranger, the Arranger being a track-based recorder. Bitwig adds a Clips and Scenes layer. In real time individual Clips and whole Scenes can be recorded into the Arranger for further 'final' de...

Re: Bitwig Studio 3.0 is out now.

[maybe off topic] What do y'all like better in Bitwig than in other DAW's? I am not and was not, really, a 'DAW shopper'. When I find one that works reasonable well I stick to it since th emain prupose is creating music. I have used Muse (long time ago), Ardour, Mixbus and Bitwig and am now using B...

As stated, this needs to be done for Bitwig (configured to use jackd) to work with MIDI controllers. If not, MIDI controllers do not work within Bitwig.

Re: Airwave VST bridge

I do not use Airwave so I can't tell although I do have a related comment. I found out that it's not mandatory to replace the linvst .so files (if Airwave works with such) between versions of the complete bundle (as beta tester, and as user). During install I do a quick cleanup, the installer gettin...

Re: Let's Cruise (surf)

It's a pretty good piece. While offering such a polished surface it nevertheless hints at some 'mystery' by the choice of chords.

Re: Bitwig Studio 3.0 is out now.

I can't, because Bitwig doesn't use jackd(bus) MIDI, control my hardware ~synthesizer via MIDI or CV, or possibly control other audio programs/synthesizers via MIDI. While still having no idea about why MIDI controllers could be used to control both soft synths inside a DAW and other things at the ...

Re: Bitwig Studio 3.0 is out now.

[...]And still about Xubuntu and LM, for Mixbus the following has to be run in order to use a MIDI controller: a2j_control ehw start And when that has been run, going back to Bitwig means doing: killall /usr/bin/a2jmidid Wow! That first command starts Alsa to Jack bridging by starting a2jmidid and ...

Re: Bitwig Studio 3.0 is out now.

That exclusive MIDI use can be a drawback in some setups although I wonder how many of those setups do exist, where one plays a synth in Bitwig using a MIDI controller and at the same time wants to play another soft synth that's not in Bitwig, with the same controller. Maybe some grid controller (La...

The Otterworld

A rather relaxing piece, although in a weird way somewhat. Done with all due respect to the Realm of the Otters.

Even Wal-mart hires Linux developers. It is quite common to find Linux everywhere.

Re: Bitwig Studio 3.0 is out now.

I haven't found any MIDI inputs/outputs function in Bitwig nor do I see any Bitwig MIDI I/O in qjackctl (a2jmidid - neither in jack nor alsa). At the first start I thought I saw a MIDI I/O from Bitwig in qjackctl. Without the Bitwig MIDI entries in qjackctl I wouldn't know how to route MIDI to exte...

Re: What kind of musician am I?

Ha! You know more than you realize, but I get your point. Music theory only really serves as a means of communication and reasoning about music, and maybe as a foundation upon which musical ideas can be built. What really matters is that a musician can use things to make creative noise, whether it ...
