Re: Optimizing Sforzando?

Which of these three if any have you had success installing? I tried to install Sfizz yesterday, first from git then I found a repo for Debian and installed with apt. It doesn't appear in my applications launcher however and searches for it lead back to the cloned git repo instead of the installed ...

Re: Optimizing Sforzando?

I haven't used Sforzando, but a few years back I tried running some other windows vst2 plugins with a wine bridge. It kind of worked but was mostly a big headache, so these days I only run native Linux plugins. I'm wondering if a native plugin might work better for you. Three options are LinuxSample...

It's a no go as a drum sampler then :(
What are you wanting in a drum sampler? Do you want anything that isn't provided by Drum Gizmo?

As I can see on screenshots, sfizz is a quite simple one comparing to linuxsampler (I may be wrong though)
Yes, that's why I like it. All I want to do is load my sfz file and get on with it.

Re: How to install LinuxSampler.

Gigasampler Oh yeah, that's right... GIG files don't work with sfizz, it only supports sfz. With that said, libgig is licensed with the regular GPL (instead of the weird LinuxSampler license that claims to be GPL with a commercial exception), so it probably wouldn't be too hard for somebody to deve...

Re: Views On LMMS For beginners

Hi Sourab! I just know how good music sounds so I dream about to creating it. Really that is all you need to get started, and there is no reason why you can't make your music on Linux. Sure, we don't have everything that is available on other operating systems, but you can find plenty of Linux softw...

Re: How to install LinuxSampler.

Failing that, am I simply out of date, and there's another sampler program that people are using? You can try sfizz or liquidsfz . Both of which are relatively newly developed. I really like sfizz; it is easier to use than LinuxSampler, and I it implements the sfz opcodes better for the some of the...

Re: COVID-19

Rainmak3r (or any other Italians), how is the situation in Italy now? The media over here in America used to cover it daily since it was one of the early hot zones. There hasn't been much follow up lately; I'm having a hard time finding reliable information about whether the medical facilities ther...

Audacity doesn't seem well suited to cleaning these up.
Noise Repellent is probably the best thing available to do this on Linux.

Re: What keyboard to buy....?

88-key is the size of a full piano. To be honest, if you're just getting started learning keyboards, a five octave controller like this one will probably be plenty enough. As for sounds, yes there are plenty of free ways to make sound on Linux using a midi controller as input, it just depends on wha...

Re: Pity Party

I'm not surprised that ufug beat me to it. This album is so hilarious, it's almost criminal. Usually when reviewing an album, I try to find a favorite piece to discuss, but I just can't pick a favorite on this one.

Re: Going Viral, The Beach is Closed

Fun tunes, I love that you got the kids involved. After reading that your son played the organ in The Beach is Closed, I wondered if it was the real organ that you showed me in your music room, but then I read the part below about it being a virtual instrument.
