Re: New album free on jamndo ( Ubuntu Studio 18.04 for all tracks)

I like tracks 1, 3, and 5 best (Hmmm . . . that's odd . . . ;) I really like the first track. The rhythm section really helps propel the sound forward, and the drum sounds are interesting. The third track has a lot of interesting sounds, and the texture evolves nicely, with several changes throughou...

Re: WeSeeNoRack - abstract

I agree - a very interesting collection of sounds. Sort of straddles the line between cacophony and music. What software did you use for this? Was any of the chaos auto-generated or did you program it all?

Re: Gravicapa (play on Helm synth)

I dig these sounds, psyocean! It reminds me of the early synthesizer music I listened to as a teenager. I also like the bonus track. You have a good ear for interesting retro synth sounds.

Re: Made a GOA track using linux

Nice sounds! I'm surprised no one else has said anything about your track. I think it sounds like solid work for your first try in Linux. Nice job!

Re: Linux Digital Audio and Music Workstation Comparison Matrix

I concede that "Free Software" (in capitals) has a strict definition, as set forth by the Free Software Foundation. I don't dismiss their work, which is important and has significantly moved the dial in the direction of freedom for software overall. (Three cheers for GNU!) But the FSF does not have ...

Re: Easiest and best way to make rock drums

Have you tried Hydrogen? It's pretty intuitive, easy to get started. Easy to route through JACK or export/import into your DAW of choice.

Re: Linux Digital Audio and Music Workstation Comparison Matrix

Therefore, there are only 2 types of software that exist; free and non-free. Any other word just plays into the efforts mentioned above to keep people ignorant. Not sure I agree with this statement. That's like separating all objects in the universe into "bananas" and "non-bananas." The complexity ...

Re: Extremophile (You're a star)

Awesome sounds, lilith! Your sound engineering is impressive. Definitely a track for an electronic audiophile.

(Makes me want to bathe in hypertonic saline, or maybe a low pH solution. Deep sea vents, anyone?)

Re: The first experiments of designing sounds on VCV Rack

One of my kids is turning 13 today, and guess what he wants for his birthday? He wants me to download and install VCV Rack on our family computer for him! I think I can make that happen . . .

I enjoyed hearing your early adventures with it, psyocean. Keep them coming!

Re: Your favourite Linux DAW's in 2019? [PLEASE VOTE AGAIN - accidentally reset poll votes!]

Could it be only marketing tactics ? Is the difference only for 'discriminating users' and has no impact for any 'commercial' mix ? I use Mixbus32C since a few years now and I like the sound. I used previously the regular Mixbus and before that Ardour. I do find a difference in the sound, a better ...

Re: Your favourite Linux DAW's in 2019? [PLEASE VOTE AGAIN - accidentally reset poll votes!]

If you guys make experiments of this kind, make sure it is a blind or double blind A/B comparison: you must compare clips by not knowing which is which: This point can't be emphasized enough.

Re: Effects Ordering In Guitarix

This is discussed at some length in a nice write-up on Guitarix at LibreMusicProduction: https://libremusicproduction.com/articles/ultimate-guide-getting-started-guitarix . The short answer is, yes, it is subjective. But there are some "best practices." Some effects are generally used on the preamp ...

Re: Your favourite Linux DAW's in 2019?

FWIW, I switched over to Linux "full time" in 2007, but I still did recording on my Windows 98 DAW for another couple of years after that. I was a poor student, and couldn't get my sound card working on Linux. I couldn't afford to buy a new audio interface. So my choice was either: 1) keep using Win...
