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.

Re: Impro / if you need to know how I'm looking

This is great fun, it makes me think of some of the early Pink Floyd stuff.

What's the difference between a banjo and a trampoline?
That settles it. I'm challenging myself to do a music project with the tenor banjo. Lad, you're welcome to join me on this ill-advisable foolhardy endeavor if you wish.

Re: Hello Neighbors!

Hi Lad! That behringer x18 looks like great fun, I wasn't aware of that model. I also (kind of) have a banjo that I don't really know how to play. It's a long story, but the short is that the neighbors had a banjo in their basement that they inherited from the grandfather and their kids promptly bro...

Re: Minimizing Latency (Am I missing something or am I screwed?)

I used the NI interface for my guitar in but I wanted to hear how bad the delay was so I patched it straight to playback. There is a headphone in for monitoring (can blend between host and direct in), perhaps that could help as I wouldn't need pulseaudio to hear it right? Yes, use the interface for...

Re: Can I use my MOTU Audio Express interface on Lubuntu?

I'm having a hard time finding information on whether MOTU Audio Express is class compliant, but generally speaking if an interface has Linux drivers they are already built into the kernel. Just plug it in, launch Ardour, create a new project, pick ALSA as the Audio System, and see if the interface ...
