Audio/video sync calibration ('lipsync') app?

When installing an audio/video system, there are various sources of latency in the chain, both for audio and video. To get audio and video in sync, you usually have to compensate by delaying one of the two. I understand this is called "lipsync" in the industry, because audio and video not ...

Re: Open Source, Communities, and the Incoming New EU Copyrights Regulations

So eventually i think this will end up in the already existing situation (...) For youtube that is. Some others who now do not regulate probably have to start something like the youtube system. To me, this is exactly the problem: these measures increase the legal risk and the investment required to...

Re: NEW CATEGORY:'Newbie' category for absolute beginners (like me)

On many forums you see dissimilarity starting to exist between newbs and "the old wise ones" with disrespectful rooster behaviour around that. In the worst cases the newbs must shut up when the big guys are talking, and the old ones dictate. I like equality among people. This is pretty co...

Re: NEW CATEGORY:'Newbie' category for absolute beginners (like me)

I'm not completely convinced this would be useful, but let's give it a try: created viewforum.php?f=64

If it doesn't take off I'll move the posts elsewhere and remove the subforum again.

Re: Librem 5 - smartphone based on Debian > android-free \o/

The special pre-order price on the Purism website for Q3 shipping is $649, not $249. That's a gentrified latté sipping hipster (image of purism CEO moderated away for readibility) price. Yes I understand that development costs time & money and that costs need to be recovered but at that kind of...

Re: Open source Gross Beat alternative

The Gross Beat plugin for FL Studio is used on a lot of tracks. I've never heard of it, so that makes it hard to suggest an alternative without further description :D I know Paulstretch can do many of the same things but I don't know if it can be considered a replacement. Can you even use it as a L...

Re: Mixbus and mixbus 32 c free update version 5.2.130

Looks like a nice packed release!

(while it is clearly also 'news', 'marketplace' is more specific so more suitable - moved the topic)

Re: Chipdisco - dual-deck DJ app for tracker modules

Thanks for keeping us posted on this! Chipdisco indeed looks pretty cool, but the mono limitation (if I'm reading the README correctly, to work around some Apple API limitations?) is indeed a pretty big one.

Re: Linux Digital Audio and Music Workstation Comparison Matrix

This argument goes 2 ways, of course. People who steer every conversation towards their favorite rant topic in real life are obnoxious as well. And since you can avoid such people in real life but not so much on forums like these, I would argue it is even more bad form online. In forum world you ca...

Re: Linux Digital Audio and Music Workstation Comparison Matrix

And what makes a forum any different than real life? When it comes to good manners, do you always feel so "entitled" to jump into a group and tell them to talk about what YOU want to talk about when the conversation evolves into something you're just not interested in? Probably not..... i...

Re: Github Microsoft/calculator README.md

I consider myself a Free Software and Open Source supporter, and if you are so openly hostile to me, this makes me wonder how I should treat you. The idea it that they wanted to market "free software" to businesses This is fairly accurate: Open Source was coined for situations where the m...

I like how the F-Droid appstore for Android not only just contains Open Source apps, but also marks any apps that contain 'Anti-Features' so as a user you are aware and can make your own choice
