Re: "Au bord du vif" | Free Improvisation on classical guitar

I really enjoyed listening and watching. Your use of harmonics was especially interesting to me.

I also enjoyed your Bach prelude. Very nice.

Re: Installing a Liquorix Kernel

I've been recording vocals in Ardour this afternoon with Liquorix enabled, 26 layers of voices, with active reverb and compressors on various tracks, and have had no xruns. But I notice a similar thing with DSP and CPU load. Compared to the lowlatency kernel, Liquorix uses about 1-2% more DSP load. ...

Re: Installing a Liquorix Kernel

I got it working on Linux Mint, through the damentz ppa (deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/damentz/liquorix/ubuntu bionic main). I had to disable secure boot in the BIOS, though, because the system complained that it was an unsigned kernel. Should I be worried about this? So far the kernel seems to be ru...

Re: Thorn in my Side

@Basslint and @Rainmak3r, thanks for the listen and for your encouragement. I am also pleased with how this collaboration is turning out. It brings out the best in both of us.

Thorn in my Side

Here is a new collaboration with my cousin Tom, a song he wrote. He recently bought a fancy-pants new Roland FA-06 synth, and played the electric piano, organ, and drums on it. I really dig the sounds he's getting out of his new toy. I did the guitar, bass, backing vocals, mixing, and mastering all ...

Re: Installing a Liquorix Kernel

I tried to install it a few months ago, and couldn't get my system to boot. So I reverted back to lowlatency.

So that makes at least 3 of us who struggled with it, although I am probably the least of the three when it comes to computing prowess. :)

Re: Out of the Void

Bravo, Lorenzo! Another epic piece. This has a very nice, slow progression throughout the piece. Sort of like Ravel's Bolero. It even has the rather abrupt ending. I like how you allow the volume to build over time, rather than try to squeeze it all together with a compressor/limiter combo. This wil...

Re: Hola from London!

I have a copy of Paco de Lucia's "Interpreta a Manuel de Falla" album (1978), and it is one of my favorite guitar albums. I also have some of the same pieces played by a classical guitarist (Christopher Parkening), and they are bland and sterile there. But in the flamenco style they are alive and in...

Re: Reflection my ultimate album free on Jamendo

I've been listening to this album all morning, and it is good all the way through. Really nice grooves and cool sounds from start to finish. This is an album I will download and add to my collection. Bravo, Gennaro!

Re: Reflection my ultimate album free on Jamendo

Listening right now, and really digging the first track. It is full of great sounds and little melodies, and has a nice beat to keep things moving. More comments later after I digest the whole album.

Re: Views On LMMS For beginners

Hey, good job getting yourself up to speed on LMMS. Nice beat you programmed.

I agree that LMMS is a great tool to get your feet wet making synth tunes on Linux. Keep at it!

Re: The Cylinders and the Spheres (binaural 3D scene/drama?)

Sorry for the delay - wanted to listen on headphones before commenting. This is a tour de force of sound design. You are a true sound geek! I have never used Csound. How much time did it take you to program this piece? What is your workflow when working with it? Do you use a text editor or a special...

Re: Psytrance tutorial (Ardour, Geonkick, Helm and more)

Nice tutorial. It's great that you show the whole process, tweaking knobs and controls, troubleshooting and exploring the possibilities, even making mistakes. This makes it much more interesting and informative. Thanks for sharing!

Re: Music player advise/recommendations needed

I am not sure if this is what you want, but I was always a fan of winamp on windows, so now on Linux I am using QMMP. This does create a playlist, but next time you start the program, it will continue were you stopped the last time. Also you can add a folder in one go, no need to add track for trac...
