Re: Sitala drum plugin

I recently switched to Manjaro KDE and Sitala no longer works in Ardour. It seems to load fine as stand alone and in Carla. However, in Carla patchbay in Ardour, it also crashes (seg fault). This is reproducible every time. If anyone has info on getting Sitala to work in Manjaro and Ardour, I'd app...

Re: Why "notes", duples?

Does anybody make a DAW where one can independently vary the tempo and time signature of each track discretely? See also https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Polytempo . Indeed most DAWs and notation-based applications don't support this. This is a limitation, but on the other hand in many situations it i...

System grinds to a halt when memory runs out

I sometimes try to run more memory-intensive applications than my system can handle. Of course, there is no easy way out: some memory-hungry application will have to go. That is what the OOM killer is designed to accomplish. However, what I notice is that sometimes, my system first grinds to a halt ...

Re: Gah....

As for name calling, all I did was point out that it is in breach of what is the accepted opensource software 'contract' to publish some software that exclusively incorporates some package at the expense of some other project. It limits freedom, not something to be encouraged. I'm not sure I agree....

Re: Do you want more people to use Linux for music?

certainly not by shaming, insulting, or hard-selling people who aren't using Linux That indeed would make no sense - though I'm not sure that happens a lot? I think there are a lot of people who could benefit from free software that aren't, either because (1) they don't know about it, (2) it isn't ...

Microphone recommendations for speech

I'm on the market for a nice microphone for speech - think webcast/podcast material, but I want it to sound professional. I already have a UA-25EX interface, so either an XLR or a USB mic would work. Budget is, say, up to EUR 100 - though I'd be interested to learn what the quality differences are b...

Re: ALSA: I need a proper example of low-latency loop for DSP

is able to recover properly from conditions where the AUDIO IN + DSP CALCULATIONS + AUDIO OUT pass couldn't be performed in time for any reason (this is the reliability test my code fails). This is an interesting goal, but as far as I know this is basically research territory. I don't think I know ...

Re: DiscoDSP's cloud

Is that even legal to charge again for something you have already paid for? I'd say so: they fulfilled their end of the deal when you downloaded the product the first time. They're under no obligation to keep alive a service for you to download it *again*. Given they don't have an obligation to pro...

Re: Quick(?) Linux DAW Bloatware Removal (MX Linux, AntiX, Debian, Ubuntu)

Many or most or perhaps ALL of these items can be safely(?, we hope) purged (completely removed) from a default MX LINUX 18.x fresh install. At least on Debian, the installer installs the base image, and then there is a separate step that allows you to install additional 'tasksel' bundles. The defa...

Re: Changing SF to Pizz Stac or Sus

with Rosegarden, I have a string part which wants to go from sus to pizz for example - and I put that in as a notation change but would love to link it to a patch change as well. Could that be done in Rosegarden with the features described at http://rosegarden.sourceforge.net/tutorial/en/chapter-7....

Cheap tablet/ereader for sheet music

I'm considering getting a cheap tablet/ereader for sheet music - that could potentially be more convenient than lugging around folders of paper. This is just a bit of fun, so I'm looking to spend up to 100 bucks on it. Second-hand/refurbished is fine. Ideally a big display, though it doesn't need to...

Re: Analysis: drifting hardware latency leads to XRun

I've been able to solve the drifting problem with the Audiofire. Nice! I had previously been able to get the 1394 light on when starting ffado-dbus-server using sudo, that light would remain on even after I had quit the ffado-dbus-server, which I believe to be false. Aahh tricky I'm grateful to be ...
