Re: Manjaro?

Just tried it for the last day or two and wrote about it on my blog over at https://wolfgang.lonien.de/2019/01/i-had-a-short-look-at/

Very positive first impression, could easily get used to it if I didn't have a great working Debian/KXStudio machine already.

Cheers,
Wolfgang

Re: I miss you (already)

Thank you all. I have a slightly different version (other drummer and an additional guitar player) on my Christmas album:

Re: I miss you (already)

That's a very good track. I also relistened to remix with just the bass and acoustic guitar on Wikiloops, that was quite relaxing. I hadn't heard of that site before. So you and the drummer both played off of the acoustic guitar and vocals, individually? Anyways, it was a nice song, well done. Than...

Re: KXStudio --> to install or not to install? --> Better Options

Hi Daniel, I'm with Luc here, and I also use Debian stable *together with* the KXStudio repositories - so I have the best of everything in my opinion. And Mint, isn't that based upon Ubuntu which itself is based upon Debian? I haven't tried it myself, but I bet that same approach with the repos shou...

Re: Scarlett 6i6 & Linux/Ardour

Hello Hedon, first, I'm glad that now you got some sound in and out of your interface. And yes, it's quite a good one, I'm really happy with mine. Check the following. In Cadence, you have to set up all channels for Jack: https://c1.staticflickr.com/5/4899/45193645515_c60c0d2a4c_o_d.png It might hav...

Re: Scarlett 6i6 & Linux/Ardour

Hello Hedon, nothing much to set up in that Focusrite Software - I've set mine to line on one, and mike on the other, like this: https://c1.staticflickr.com/5/4834/44274829000_5e11c75d5b_o_d.png and this: https://c1.staticflickr.com/5/4901/45179329945_3e9181a2e1_o_d.png The hint with Alsamixer is va...

6 steps, extended mix, no bass

Good morning Linux musicians, just made this extended dancefloor mix yesterday evening with Ardour and some Calf plugins: https://www.wikiloops.com/backingtrack-jam-151682.php Enjoy. And add something if you like, it's open for everyone, and as you can hear, this one still leaves lots of space for w...

Re: Need a new Linux-compatible audio Interface

Hi, I'm very happy with my Focusrite Scarlett 6i6 2nd gen (with two headphone outputs which work great), and for my brother I've got a Behringer UMC202HD which also works great. Take the 204 from Behringer or the 2i4 from Focusrite if you want/need MIDI connections as well. The Behringer is about ha...

Re: FocusRite Scarlet Solo

I have a bigger Scarlett on my self-built Debian box, and our daughter runs Ubuntu Studio on her older notebook. You should have the right kernel and setup already, since Ubuntu Studio brings all that just like any other music-orientated Linux version. The user should also be in the audio group alre...

Re: Selecting a recording mixer / interface

Well I'm only home recording, so for my needs my Focusrite Scarlett 6i6 (6 in 6 out) is way more than enough. But: If I would have the need to record, say, a high school big band, a "normal" rockband or whatever simultaneously, then a Midas or Behringer X32 would be my (cheap) tool of choi...

Arvo by the billabong

Hi, just used Rakarrack on a separate track in Ardour for my bass, thought you'd like to listen: https://www.wikiloops.com/backingtrack-jam-149821.php Here's the full-res screenshot of it: https://c2.staticflickr.com/2/1977/44897993274_f47ebbc909_o_d.png ( also on https://www.flickr.com/photos/wjlon...
