Re: "Die Ferne" (some things should stay where they are)

You absolutely nailed the guitar solo! I am very impressed with your playing. Overall the sound is mixed and balanced well. Very professional sounding. The time you have spent setting up your studio was well spent.

Re: Nightcore Remixes

The last track on this album had the vocal track sped up: https://linuxmusicians.com/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=19857

I once made a "Chipmunks" version of "Hangman" with my kids just for fun. But I will never post it here. :)

Re: Song for Evelyn

Thanks, Jonetsu. I agree that it's a little unfair to ask for impartial feedback on a song like this. "Please be honest and tell me whether you like this track, but please be aware that I have invested so much of my personal emotion in it that I will be devastated at the slightest criticism.&qu...

Re: Song for Evelyn

Thanks, everyone, for your kind words. Bluebell: I lost count of how many times I cried while making this track. :) As I've said before, if your recording communicates the emotion effectively, then most people will forgive its warts. There are playing errors here and there in this track, but the com...

Song for Evelyn

I just posted a new recording for my album-in-progress, an instrumental piece dedicated to my baby girl who died: https://alansanderson.band/2019/05/16/song-for-evelyn/ . Writing and recording this tune has been really therapeutic for me. A few firsts on this recording: My first time using ZynAddSub...

Re: jam602

It sounds like your acoustic guitar micing and playing technique are similar to mine (although I think your playing is better :) ). I have played fingerstyle fairly exclusively for 15+ years, and I think my last recording to use a pick was in 2005. I have been using 2 mics for the last year or so, o...

Oh, what a lovely, gentle tone from steel strings! Is it the lack of a typical sound hole that makes the tone so round, probably? How do you mic the guitar? Where do you place the mics?

Re: jam602

I like this a lot. It is a very interesting texture of sounds, and really has potential. The mood of the synths is rather pensive, but the guitar is quite relaxed. That juxtaposition is what makes the texture so pleasing. I love the guitar sounds - your guitar work is always good. This makes me want...

Re: Anyone able to build Algoscore recently?

This page has some useful info: http://kymatica.com/apps/algoscore .

Re: My first recording in a full Linux environment ^^

A solid job for your first all-Linux production! I rather like the atmospheres you are creating with the guitars. My favorite part is the guitar at the end. Is that a nylon string guitar? I might suggest placing an EQ on the master bus and lowering the midrange just a bit. That might open up some so...

Re: Ardour How to split stereo directly to 2 mono?

Your answer might be on this page in the Ardour manual: http://manual.ardour.org/signal-routing/Patchbay/. Specifically, there is a setting called "show individual ports" that you may need to enable to get what you want.

Re: which song is coming out of your speakers right now?

Kit Watkins and Coco Roussel - In Time. Here are three tracks from the album: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y63Aa3BcdVo I found this album years ago by accident, at a public library sale. Apparently no one ever checked out the CD, so they put it up for sale. I had never heard of it, or the artists...

Re: Worse performance when power supply plugged in!

I though it could be interesting if I dropped by to link a blog post I wrote on the topic Thanks for sharing that blog post, CrocoDuck. It was a very interesting read. (1 down; only 3 more interested people to find!) It got me thinking about using latency as a stereo effect in a mixdown. I have exp...

Re: "space"

This is really cool. Your description of what is happening "under the hood" makes me appreciate it all the more. And it does sound like a lot of fun. I think it is the zynaddsubfx that adds the most interest to the tone. There is a slight latency on the pitch adjustment to the synth that g...

Re: Cadence Not Available In Ubuntu 18.10 Or 19.04

Did you try the *.deb packages to install the repositories? They work great.
