Re: Scarlett 18i8 3rd Gen - constant click noises but no xruns

I have a 3rd gen 2i2 that I got a week ago, and it's working well. Currently I'm using Xubuntu 19.10 with realtime kernel 5.3.0-19 (also tested in Lubuntu 19.10 with same kernel). The only time I hear a click is when switching sample rates. This applies to when a Youtube video is 48 KHz, after havin...

Re: Surge synth testers wanted, also an LV2 version in the works

It has that, VST2, VST3, and a bunch of presets. You can open the Deb package with an archive manager to see. It might be possible to place the files on the hard drive yourself if you put them in the right locations. Anyway it seems to be a rather innocent Deb package. (edit) I forgot it also had a ...

Re: What preference do you have for DAWs?

Since a lot of DAWs in Linux are free, it's a good idea to try them to see which workflow suits you best. Each has something about it that's different, and to some people it's a make-or-break difference. No DAW is absolutely perfect/flawless either. I use Reaper. It can usually bend to fit the workf...

Re: Download for Linux

The kits were recorded by Vincent (tchackpoum.fr), of his drums. They have no bleed but there are room and overhead buses (both stereo). They sound great. There are 3 sets of toms, 5 snares, a bunch of cymbals, a few kicks...lots of stuff. Kicks have in/out/sub channels, snares have top/bottom chann...

Re: Download for Linux

I think the idea of having a library of beats is useful for some people especially if used as a basis for an idea and/or jamming out something quickly. I seem to work backwards though, wanting the drums to match something so specifically that even using Ezdrummer2's library crammed full of extra MID...

Re: Download for Linux

ugh this runs under wine, I can't drag and drop the midi tracks into Ardour, Reaper.... With this script, you can import the file in Reaper (no drag-and-drop, but it's better than nothing). https://forum.cockos.com/showthread.php?p=2030985 I stopped using "built in" MIDI in drum plugins a while ago...

Re: Do any Guitar pedal makers offer Linux support?

I'd prefer that they made the software usable in Linux too, but for my purposes I don't mind. I like the selection of cabs it has once I got used to them and how the presets work (mic position/distance, EQ, etc.); it's actually quite flexible. Plus I'm only really using it for bass guitar at the mom...

Re: Do any Guitar pedal makers offer Linux support?

I just wanted to say this is a great question. Seeing USB ports on pedals and amps is a frustrating trend. I got a Mooer Radar a few months back which I am about to sell for this very reason. Amazing tool crippled by its attachment to its software. It works fine without connecting it to a computer ...

Then I decided, whatever, if pe...

Also some people have chained both of them in one reverb bus, first the room and then the hall. I should have known somebody would try such shenanigans, but I didn't even think of it :lol: ... if you want to try it, I would suggest only including early reflection in the first one... of course that'...

Re: Most used Linux distribution?

It turns out that I was wrong about my MX Linux install having no tweaks. Installing qjackctl had automatically added my user name to the RT group and set it for high priority. I discovered this when I did a fresh install of MX a little while ago, since qjackctl isn't installed by default and my per...

Re: Dragonfly Room Reverb - Testers needed

The RT CPU measurement has little to do with the CPU measurement, RT CPU is similar to JACK's DSP load, that is to say that it measures how much of the time available to process the audio was actually used. Ok then. That means the "true CPU" of these plugins is 15% lower when used without anticipat...
