Re: MIDI controllable drum machine

I've used it as a plugin within Ardour. I would think it would also work in MuSE.

Re: MIDI controllable drum machine

You're welcome. How do you do your drums? I've been using DrumGizmo. I use Hydrogen for a quick beat to practice with. If you want a drum part that is something like what a real drummer might play then DrumGizmo is worth trying. If you want a more electronic sounding drum part then Hydrogen with e.g...

Not so sure about that. Hydrogen has a MIDI in.

Re: Better performance in Windows

I had a look on GitHub and the developer is working on version 2. The real bug here is that it is not possible to change the JACK buffer on the fly. On my system using a JACK buffer of 128 results in zero Xruns for simple patches. 128 is right on the limit for me of playability. A lot of people use ...

Re: Better performance in Windows

Merlyn, did you try changing the Frame Rate under View? It's quite GPU intensive so that can sometimes help. I did, yes. I fired VCV up again to check what was going on and the frame rate is 10Hz -- the lowest value. It sure is GPU intensive -- I hear the fan in my graphics card spinning up. :) War...

Re: Better performance in Windows

I've tried out VCV rack and I can confirm that it won't go down to very low latencies without Xruns. My impression is that this is a VCV rack problem not a Linux problem. The JACK implementation on VCV rack certainly isn't the best. For example it's part of JACK to be able to change the buffer size ...

Re: Newbie trying to emulate Loopback or Blackhole with JACK

It looks good anyway. :) I can't really follow the connections or have any idea what it is doing, but cool if that's what you wanted. I think you'll like PipeWire when it's available.

Re: Rode Podcaster

OK. Must be in a different place on Ubuntu. Try using this path :

Code: Select all

$ /etc/init.d/rtirq status
If that works use the same path for 'restart'.

Re: Rode Podcaster

Thank you - I have found the config - do I comment out the bit that is there already? That's a good idea so you can revert it. It would end up looking like this : # IRQ thread service names # (space separated list, from higher to lower priority). # RTIRQ_NAME_LIST="rtc snd usb i8042" # old # RTIRQ_...

Re: Rode Podcaster

You do indeed. Now you can raise the priority of your soundcard using rtirq. I think the configuration file is in /etc/default/ on Ubuntu. Adding 'xhci' to the rtirq name list has worked for other people like so :

Code: Select all

RTIRQ_NAME_LIST="xhci"

Re: Rode Podcaster

To see if you have threadirqs loaded use

Code: Select all

$ cat /proc/cmdline | grep threadirqs
If that returns anything you do. If it returns nothing you don't.

Re: Rode Podcaster

Did you hear Xruns? I notice QjackCtl reports 0 (449). When I used QjackCtl I remember that I didn't hear the Xruns in brackets -- I did hear the Xruns not in brackets. If you can't hear them it's not such a problem. This new kernel you've got could be a stock kernel, so you could try using the thre...

Re: Newbie trying to emulate Loopback or Blackhole with JACK

I was thinking in example to be able to mix the audio with some different colleagues by Skype or DIscord or similar while playing some other audio from my computer without causing a loop. I don't think JACK is relevant to this case. I've found this diagram useful : https://i.ibb.co/TWf0Fmd/ALSAJACK...

Re: Newbie trying to emulate Loopback or Blackhole with JACK

Hi madmalkav. There is a good chance you will at least be able to get close to what you want. At the moment I'm not sure what that is. I was trying to set up Jack to behave similar to software like Loopback or Blackhole in Mac. I don't know what they are, or what they do. For software that is not co...

Re: Mastering settings

JAMin was good at the time but now there are better plugins to master with. The EQ on JAMin in particular was an innovative idea -- to be able to draw an arbitrary curve, but it can result in an unnatural sound.

It's possible to recreate what JAMin does with a chain of CALF or LSP plugins.
