Re: The ideas of GNU/Linux

The Cathedral and the Bazaar by Eric S. Raymond: http://www.catb.org/~esr/writings/cathedral-bazaar/cathedral-bazaar/ Over the years I have wondered whether his insights can be applied to music making. Some people compose music in the Cathedral style, and others seem to work well in the Bazaar style...

Re: Mary

I have never used a condenser mic, but that might be part of the issue. Those things can be crazy sensitive. Even with a dynamic mic you have to use a foam cap on the mic to reduce the percussive consonants. How close to the mic was she, and did you have anything covering the mic?

Re: Mary

Wow! That's pretty epic! An ambitious work, and well-executed, IMO. The piece has good flow, like every part belongs, and the progression is logical. It tells the story well, and knowing the story helps the listener interpret the music. The story has emotional impact, and I think the emotion works i...

Re: Xmonk.lv2, aLV2 toy

Here's a quick demo I recorded: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1bg7rQ6tixWLAcOFV_nfZLLjQDKOpc3Sz/view?usp=sharing (The drums are Geonkick, the bass is Amsynth.)

This plugin is very fun to use! Thanks again for developing it!

Re: Xmonk.lv2, aLV2 toy

It works! And it's pretty sweet. My boys are going to love this! I'll post some audio later.

Thank you for developing this, and for helping me troubleshoot it.

Re: My first album (3 years of of experimentations and learning)

Happy to hear that you like my tunes. They are also definitely reminding me of my youth (i'm still young btw). I'm doing the music I'd like to listen to. Well spotted for #6 ! I'm a huge Cure fan. My aim was to create something that sound "Curish". Some people are complaining that my tune...

Re: My first album (3 years of of experimentations and learning)

I like these tunes! Your sound palette reminds me of the music from my youth. Even your guitar tones fit in that genre. (#6 on your album sounds like it could have been on an early album by The Cure, for instance.) You also have the gift of brevity, which was a rare virtue in the 1980's. Your album ...

Re: 'Daybreak', new trance EP

Solid work! This is musically interesting, and I think pushes outside the boundaries of trance a few times. The orchestral portion of the last track, for instance, and the piano cadenza in another. Overall the album sounds more like late 80's techno in a way (that's a good thing, IMO). I also like t...

Re: Kalinysha - 2018 - Kalinusha

This is an interesting listen. Thanks for posting. I agree that folk music is full of interesting ideas and sounds. How much did you alter the compositions? I assume the drums and synth backing tracks were your addition. What about the vocal harmonies? This sounds like a fun project! EDIT: I am impr...

Re: Peavey USB-P DAC

It is a class compliant device, according to https://peavey.com/products/index.cfm/item/875/117099/.

Try setting it as the jack output device in the qjackctl settings. Does that work?

Mine is a different model, with fewer bells and whistles (a Keystation 49e). I'm glad your device is working!
