Re: flosstudio - CC0-licensed database for FLOSS music-making programs

We've thought about automatically opening a Github PR for each submitted entry but they would still need to be manually checked. I think that would be a good idea. It allows the submitter to check, whether the submission arrived correctly, and to follow its status. A challenge would be handling of ...

Re: flosstudio - CC0-licensed database for FLOSS music-making programs

I just submitted an entry - where do these submission end up? What if I want to make a correction or addition? Not that I need to right now, just asking in case I do. Addendum: Also, are there any guidelines for creating screenshots? * Preferred size and aspect ratio? * With window decorations or wi...

Re: Libre Music Challenge #3 : B.Excellent

Here are my ratings and some remarks on each track (except mine). These are as written straight down while listening to each tracks for rating it. Please forgive me, if they are sometimes a bit harsh, but I believe it is better to be honest than boring here. Chris +---+----------------+-------------...

Re: Anyone else having Ardour 6 segfaults?

Renoise and Reaper are incredibly stable so I don't believe the stuff about libs that the daw is compiled against That's a wrong logical conclusion, because Renoise and Reaper are doing exactly the same, i.e. they are compiled against certain (versions of) libraries. Only difference is, with them y...

Re: Updated list of Linux compatible audio interfaces

Which one? But I almost always use both with 48 kHz.

I use the Zoom R8 in stand-alone mode at 44.1 kHz, because otherwise the built-in effects do not work, I believe. But that's not relevant for Linux, other than that I have to upsample the recorded WAV files for Ardour 48 kHz sessions.

Re: Updated list of Linux compatible audio interfaces

The links to the thread / list in the second post of this thread do not work anymore, so I can't check, whether this is already listed: - Zoom R8 (digital recorder) - Works as 2-in/2-out audio interface at 44.1 or 48 kHz and as a MIDI controller without problems - Zoom H2n (handheld / field recorder...

Re: Libre Music Challenge #3 : B.Excellent

obiwanke, solid first effort, but I would definitely add a bassline, even if it's just simple whole note root notes. I think it would take the track to a new level.

TBH, the PKGBUILDs are full of errors and sloppiness.

Re: Libre Music Challenge #3 : B.Excellent

Hmm, I don't fully understand this months rules. What is allowed as sound sources? Are we supposed to use an existing track and mangle it with any of the B. plugins? Or can we use any kind of samples or tone-generator as source material? What about the plugins, which output MIDI? Can we use any inst...
