Re: Another New Recruit

Hello everyone! Hi Paul! Cubase way back when. When you say that it makes me think you were using an early version of Cubase on an Atari ST, circa 1989. :lol: I'm currently overwhelmed by the vast amount of plugins :shock: Don't worry too much about it, you can start out fairly minimalist, and then...

Re: Cleaning guitars?

I don't know about guitars, but some of my family members play violin and viola. From what I have read, some people that play these instruments insist that nothing be used except for a microfiber cloth. You might consider what are you trying to protect your instrument from?

Is this observation based on your experience with kxstudio on the same hardware, it has anything else changed since then?

Both, but I liked the room reverb more. It was a better shot at this kind of plugins.

That's funny, I still like the hall reverb more, but I mostly do stuff with acoustic instruments. Both are useful for different things.

Re: Dragonfly Hall Reverb

Tested it in a recent arrangement. To be honest, I am usually very skeptical about algorithmic reverbs, but this one is added to my go-to list. Great stuff. It's especially useful on guitar solos, acoustic guitars, and drums. Awesome stuff. I'll be mixing my band's upcoming album using it, no doubt...

Well, it still needs a driver; it's just that if the device is class-compliant, then you can be assured that the driver is built into the Linux kernel and you don't have to worry about it.

Did you manage to get the lv2 to work?

I got it to build and load in the DAW, but the UI doesn't work. I was thinking of maybe configuring an Ardour session on my Linux machine, and then trying to load it on the Mac to see if it would at least make some noise, but I haven't tried it yet.

Re: Hardware Midi Keyboard on Disco Dingo/ Ardour 5.12.0

When Ardour is not in playback-mode, i receive sounds from the different plugins via my external keyboard. When Ardour is in playback-mode, i get no sound from the plugins over my keyboard. I checked the right midi-channel on the keyboard and again and again qjacktl. Thanks a lot for support. :-) F...

Re: Let's Cruise (surf)

When I read "(surf)", I was wondering if it would have a spring reverb. It sounds like there is no spring reverb, but that's fine.

Some of the solo parts are using an exotic scale. Is that the phrygian mode, or something else? Whatever it is, I like the sound of it!

Re: Do you want more people to use Linux for music?

I would guess that it refers to a fairly large demographic that will not use an operating system that doesn't come installed on hardware they buy at a store. The process of downloading the installation software, putting it...

Re: What kind of musician am I?

I do not know much theory. At all. 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 ...

Re: What kind of musician am I?

Thanks everybody, great ideas all around. Generally I think the idea is to stop thinking so hard about everything and just create stuff. I don't give myself enough credit for how much music theory I understand and how much creative ability I already have, and so I keep grasping for new things to fil...

Re: Looking for a good quality Audio interface... for cheap...

I'm a little late to this conversation, but what precisely are you trying to do? How many inputs do you need? What do you need optical for? If you're trying to record a five-person band with multiple mics on the percussion set, then sure, get one of the bigger interfaces with 16 inputs and ADAT in c...
