Re: I feel like giving up with audio as a whole

Have you tried Claudia? It might just do the trick and it has sessions. I think Ladish is not really used a lot in itself but Claudia / Catia could be the way to go. In AV-Linux these work flawlessly. https://kxstudio.linuxaudio.org/Applications:Claudia But Claudia is a Ladish front-end. This is wh...

Re: I feel like giving up with audio as a whole

Hi Yama, can you specify why you want to have other applications playing sound at the same time? Maybe there's a workaround to your problem. When working with jack: Have you tried patchage or catia? They work ab bit like ladish but are more recent stable. Hi. Yes, I wanted to transcribe a track, so...

Re: I feel like giving up with audio as a whole

I'd suggest to forget about Jack, ladish and all of that stuff. Jack is a great tool but can be a bit fiddly to setup. Simply use a recent version of Ardour in ALSA mode. Plugin your Keyboard, create a midi track with your favourite softsynth and set the input to your midi device. It's really easy ...

Re: I feel like giving up with audio as a whole

I'm astonished you are having so much difficulty here. Can you give us a run-down again on your kit? That's, hardware, Distro and applications. I managed to get linuxsampler running smoothly (and hence musescore), but I'm now hesitant of exploring other programs. Hardware: just onboard soundcard, m...

I find it confusing as well. Claudia is a ladish front end. If ladish is outdated, isn't Claudia as well? And if that shouldn't be used, doesn't that just throw out cadence as a whole?

Re: I feel like giving up with audio as a whole

Why should you use that ladish? Especially if is said it's old and no more supported. Keeping such software running is asking for problems. Ladisch? Sound routing? Why not use Jack? Or simply alsa? I plug in my midi-keyboard. And dedicate it to a wanted track within DAW and other music software. Th...

Re: I feel like giving up with audio as a whole

Your limits.conf is basically empty as every line is commented. You should include the two important lines as described here: https://wiki.linuxaudio.org/wiki/system_configuration#limitsconfaudioconf What distro are you running?

ImportError: No module named xdg do you have python-xdg installed? edit: whoopy, ignore that, that's for python3 python2-xdg is for python2 (hmm, neither laditools nor laditools-git has that dependency, but it's possibly such a common module that no-one has noticed so far..?) Okay now it's stopped ...

Re: I feel like giving up with audio as a whole

And every time I try to do that, I feel like the software just shits on my face. I'm tired of it. The worst part is that this didn't come as the result of me trying anything new. Stuff used to be working, now it doesn't. I really don't know what to do. I love open source. I hate windows, I hate jus...

Re: I feel like giving up with audio as a whole

How does your limits.conf looks like? No need to give up. I started without having a clue about linux and it works most of the time. If not I always got help here! Concerning the Ardour problem you might ask at IRC to get help. I know sometimes it's discouraging but how discouraging would it be to ...

Re: I feel like giving up with audio as a whole

Thanks for responding. ladish has been dead since a few years, so I expect things to slowly not work there anymore. It is being removed from archlinux, and soon enough from Debian too. might be that you just need to try out new tools, seeing as the current ones dont work well. Oh really? See this is...

I feel like giving up with audio as a whole

So I'm not sure where to post this. Initially this was gonna be a post troubleshooting about LADISH and my midi keyboard. Here's what it was gonna be: Since a few weeks ago, LADISH has stopped showing my keyboard when I plug it in. I asked in reddit and the response was that I needed to enable expor...

Connecting midi controller with less hassle?

Right now when I want to just play on my midi keyboard (not record, just play), I open up cadence, start up jack, turn on midi controller, open calfjack, select fluidsynth, select soundfont (I still can't figure out how to change the default folder where fluidsynth looks for soundfonts) and then ope...
