Re: Lost and Found - My "Albumatross"

Thanks for the album
For me, the world needs more of those. It's good honest music, produced "at home", just with the joy of music behind.
If you want some feedback on your new album, send me a message, I'll be happy to help.

Re: Any Ab.Live alternative?

I think we miss some Infos about what you want to achieve. Are you looking for a production platform? Then nearly any daw might work for you. Are you looking for a live performance tool? Then loopers like giada, luppp or loopp might be a better pick. Basically, any controller that outputs midi is co...

Re: A guideline for minimal audio configuration

@crocket You raise interesting questions. And you're entirely right that Pulse audio wasn't designed for low latency. I have to admit I don't compile Linux kernels while doing audio work. And the bridge is just a mean to quickly watch/listen to something outside of the jack ecosystem. I'd be much mo...

Re: A guideline for minimal audio configuration

@crocket I love to disagree with you. • First, because my experience is different. Pulse audio is always bridged to jack on my system and it never caused a dropout/xrun. I have to run it on my commercial machine because my customers always said "hey check this video, I want to sound like them". And ...

Re: Mastodon and the fediverse

The question of trust is essential. And if you don't trust your instance administrator, you can still roll your own instance and be part of the whole thing. Being able to pack your data and move to another instance is also cool. Another point is that you have 3 streams of information. The people you...

Instant bass fattener. Or I dial it to taste with some send and filter out what I don't like.

Re: Mastodon and the fediverse - yay, getting there

I'm trying to make the fediverse a good place for linux musicians. Providing arrangement and mixing tricks is one way for me to do it. Advocating FOSS is another. Interacting and helping the linuxaudio community is yet another way to strengthen ourselves.

Re: Hi from Piobair

What kind of bagpipes are you playing? There are over 120 different kinds of bagpipes in Europe.

Have you tried lilypond or Musescore for your scores? As far as I remember, lilypond even has a bagpipe notation.

Re: Supported Audio Interface Information

It's a difficult topic. There is no centralised info about which soundcard works where. At the moment, the consensus is to use an USB interface which is class compliant. You don't have the DSP, but you've got all inputs and outputs. Most 2 channels interfaces have a CC mode and will work with Linux....

Re: Are there affordable microphones that last for decades?

For the price of a lewitt I can buy a hell lot of stuff. Or no stuff at all. Or whatever in between. :lol: My point is that you can find usb mics that are good professional hardware. Or whatever cheap mic you want or can afford. I bet you can make serious things with a scarlet and an at2020. Then go...

Re: Are there affordable microphones that last for decades?

I thought USB microphones don't survive as long as XLR microphones. It's not about XLR being better than USB, it's a production thing. XLR mics are meant for daily use in studio or on stage, that's why they are usually better built than USB mics being used sporadically by a wannabe podcaster. Dynam...

Re: Please share your gnu/linux music production setup

Nice setup @WforWoollyMammoth I also have a Babyface Pro (among other RME soundcards) and I'm quite happy with it. Software monitoring works fine for me if I ever need to overdub. I don't agree with you about free audio software being subpar. Setting up the a-compressor from ardour is as easy as set...
