Re: Free acoustic drum bank for DrumGizmo, 1.7 GB, round robin

Yes I know that but all the regular drum Gizmo kits load in muse but this one when I load up the main kit it only gives me the snare drums. I do the same thing in Ardour and Reaper and the main kid loads properly. I've always been using Muse to do my drum editing so I know how to load it in there b...

yep. I loaded this kit and only heard snare. Loaded DRS and heard the entire kit using the same instant of drumgizmo. Gonna try again.
In this kit, the first two channels are snare mics. The first two channels in DRSKit are the ambient mics.

Hey Ben! I was wondering if you would write back, I'm glad that you got things sorted out enough to get started making some music. Now just into learning about the crazy amount of software and plugins I find myself with access to! ... Any recommendations for useful software/plugins etc to explore fo...

Re: Ubuntu studio vs Kubuntu (+kxstudio repos). Advantages and disadvantages?

A distro that is designed for audio production will already have the adjustments recommended in that wiki page, so if you want to do it the easy way, just install a pre-built audio distro like Ubuntu Studio or AVLinux or something. On the other hand, if you really want to use a specific distro (it s...

Re: Ubuntu studio vs Kubuntu (+kxstudio repos). Advantages and disadvantages?

If you're comfortable using the command line and customizing your distro, I would recommend picking a distro that you like and then adapting it for real-time audio. Although the steps may seem esoteric the first time you do it, there aren't really that many adjustments that you have to make. There a...

Re: virtual-playing-orchstra with Ardour on Ubuntu Studio 19.10

Michael Willis Thanks very much for providing this template! I have been able to work with it after tweaking my system (symlinking VPO to `/opt/VirtualPlayingOrchestra`, but had to recreate the `Panagement 2` plugin on the trumpet track, as your version has it installed as `mac-vst` rather than `lv...

Re: Come Walk With Me

I made a final draft of this and replaced the original draft that I had on SoundCloud: https://soundcloud.com/user-201997735/come-walk-with-me It's not a lot different, I just made some adjustments to allow additional shine from Julie's voice, Alan's guitar comes through a bit more, and the piano is...

Whoa, great work on this! Your orchestral + prog rock style is definitely coming together! I find your sister's accent charming, singing those English lyrics. I had no idea that the conclusion was a prerecorded wedding celebration, I totally thought that you arranged it yourself. Oh, and yes, of cou...

Re: The Ballad of the California Gold Rush

This is great fun. I'm really curious how you got the piano to sound like that, your description just says "piano synth".

Re: Greetings From Edinburgh

Hi Ben! You're on the right track, keep it up. Just a couple of suggestions: First try using Ardour with just ALSA instead of JACK. There are more advanced things that you can do with JACK, like routing audio among multiple applications, but see if ALSA will do what you need first. You are going to ...

Re: KX Studio at the End of Standard Support - what now?

I'm using Elementary OS 5.1 with kxstudio repos added. I'm pretty happy with it after doing the typical recommended optimizations for audio production. I have also used xubuntu for a while and didn't have any issues with stability or performance.
