Re: Can somebody demystify JACK for me?

Maybe the first thing to determine is whether you really need JACK. Paul Davis (the original developer of JACK and the primary developer of Ardour) now recommends that people use Ardour5 with ALSA instead of JACK, unless there is a specific reason to use JACK. The short story about why you would use...

Re: Orchestra Template for Ardour

I made a major update to this template. Now it uses sfizz instead of LinuxSampler, the signal routing is *much* more simple now, and I dare say that I have it mixed way better than my previous attempts. The sfizz folks say they are gearing up for an official 1.0 release, which should hopefully inclu...

Re: Hello!

Hi unaHm! Please ask questions as you experiment with making music. For sampled instruments, you should keep an eye on this project: https://sfz.tools/sfizz/ It is already usable if you are up to compiling it yourself, and there should be an official 1.0 release soon. After several years of fighting...

Re: O Come, O Come, Emmanuel

Great arrangement. My favorite is the clarinet part 8) Did you use samples for the tubular chimes?

Re: Pumpernickel and Periwinkle

Unfortunately the link seems to be broke. Michael, could you please provide a (new) working link, I'd really like to listen to that piece, especially because I'm interested in your Ardour template. Thanks! Yes, it is so sad, instaud.io went bust a while back. I'll see what I can do about digging up...

Re: Please share your gnu/linux music production setup

On the early reflections: On the original author's site is stated: "the early reflections are different for the L and R inputs, but do not correspond to any real room. They have been tuned to match left and right sources to some extent." https://kokkinizita.linuxaudio.org/linuxaudio/zita-...

Re: Lost and Found - My "Albumatross"

Great work! Even though you have shared earlier drafts of some of these, it was fun to finally listen to the whole album. The first time listening through, Alpha was my favorite track. After listening a few times... Alpha is still my favorite. It is super fun and bouncy; it can keep my head bopping ...

Re: Stickers!

That looks great! I keep thinking that I should do something like this with the clip art that I used as the dragonfly reverb logo. If anybody in North America wants to coordinate on getting LM stickers, we should get some shipped from Europe in bulk to one of us and then distribute them via USPS mai...

Re: Please share your gnu/linux music production setup

However, I'm under the impression that the "hall" version of it is just zita reverb with a different early reflections algo? Correct if I'm wrong with that description. Dragonfly Hall can be considered a descendant of Zita with a few additional features that make quite a difference: * The...

Re: JJazzLab, new free software to make backing tracks in a few minutes

Hi Jerome! At a glance this looks pretty great, I hope to give it a try soon. I have a group of coworkers that sometimes play jazz during lunchtime, this might be a nice tool for us to use. I took a quick look at the code, I thought it would be hilariously punny if it used the Swing gui library... s...

Re: Focusrite Scarlett 6i6 and 18i8 2nd Gen mixer driver

The release notes for Linux 5.4 mention this driver:

Serious congrats! This makes me want to go out and get that second-gen 18i8 that I keep pretending that I "need" :lol:

Seems like the real solution is to find a percussionist that is willing to collaborate with you ;)
