Re: Use KDE for audio stuff?

Yes, but that's kde4. But I'll give it a try, baloo can easily be suspended, compositing is easy to switch off.

Thank you!

Use KDE for audio stuff?

Hi, I made some tests with xruncounter to optimize my system performance. I need my system for live-playing, so low latency + no xruns are a must. On KDE, results are quite unpredictable: sometimes I get the first xrun at 95% load (which would be good, I think), sometimes at 60% or so. If I use icew...

Re: switching from apple to linux

I can say about point (3): Manjaro is arch-based, I use antergos, which is Arch-based, too. I think that arch is very well suited for audio, and the documentation (in the arch wiki) is very good. It depends a bit on your knowledge, Arch linux (and, to a lesser degree, the derivatives) are known not ...

Re: Guitarix 0.38.0 released

Hallo Hermann, great news! One Question: Can guitarix (as a whole) now be used as lv2-plugin directly or is it still necessary to put it into a carla-container and then export to lv2? On my system (with a shipped, older guitarix-version) I cannot automate guitarix when used as a plugin (with the car...

Re: MIDI Plugins in QTractor

Thanks a 1000 times! Without your additional explanation I would not have understood (from the diagram alone, I mean). As for my initial problem, I will stick with my alternative solution. Adding a MIDI aux send and another MIDI bus just to be able to use the keysplit-plugin will not be easier than ...

Re: Are there affordable microphones that last for decades?

Most people here do not use usb microphones. From what do you conclude the short lifespan? Is yours defective? Microphone manufacturers often give long warranties to ther products (Rode for instance has a 10-year-warranty). The least expensive vocal mic (nt1-a, costs about three times as much as you...

Re: MIDI Plugins in QTractor

Thank you again! If this is not true for buses, why did my first attempt in redirecting events from MIDI channel 1 to 2 not work? I had inserted the plugin to the MIDI master channel (input) and redirected channel 1 to channel 2. But still the events were passed to the track which had MIDI channel 1...

Re: MIDI Plugins in QTractor

Thank you. I did know about the auto-monitor, but that was just an exercise. On the whole, the setup is much more complex, and I cannot rely on a track being highlighted. I want to be able to automate this, set monitor on on one track, later on another, to change instruments without the need of syse...

MIDI Plugins in QTractor

Hi, I own a stagepiano that lacks features of a typical MIDI-Masterkeyboard. So I am trying to achieve some of that with MIDI-Plugins. As a first exercise I wanted to map a midi-channel to another. I have a midi track in QTractor with an instrument plugin. I have set this to "monitor" on. ...

Re: Guitarix & Behringer UMC202HD

Maybe you should concentrate on one aspect first. a) Play guitar through Guitarix b) Use a DAW. There are different ways to do this, and you have gotten good advice here already. I would do as follows: a) Plug in your Behringer UMC and turn it on (I have a bigger Behringer interface which has to be ...

Re: Guitarrix Cabinet IR or not?

Tone Control - Cabinet is the "normal" cabinet simulation.

There is one based on impulse-response, too, but I am not familiar with that.

changing sounds for live-setup

Hi, I use qtractor for preparing a live-mix for a small band. For my last gig I saved the settings for each song in a qtractor-file and loaded the next file for the next song. For my next project, there will be a kind medley involved, so this won't be fast enough. What I would like: Click on one key...

Re: Versilian Community Sample Library

Ok, I've found out: - it works in linuxsampler - for the xylophone, the keys are c - c# - d below the playable notes In linuxsampler, you hear nothing until you press some of those keys, so there is no default-layer it seems. Sorry for being off-topic, this seems more a carla-issue than a vcsl - iss...

Re: Versilian Community Sample Library

Hi, I am just trying out the sfz version of vcsl. I've loaded xylophone keyswitch into carla rack. Plays fine, sounds great, but how do I switch the articulation? I have read the python script that generates them and thought that I had to press keys below the instrument-range (or up) do switch, but ...
