Re: [ANN] JDXi Manager - a Roland JD-Xi Editor

Some discussion about the JD-Xi itself developed here, which is kind of off-topic since this thread is about the editor. I've split this off to its own thread at viewtopic.php?f=59&t=19378 .

Re: Sitala drum plugin

on Linux, it's absolutely not a reliable assumption that software that works with old libs will work on a newer system. (...) With Windows and macOS you can choose which version of the system you're targeting, and build packages for that version of the system, and are mostly guaranteed that they'll...

Re: Sitala drum plugin

the LGPL allows static linking as long as you "also provide your application in an object (not necessarily source) format It's something that I initially didn't consider, mainly because I've never seen any proprietary app take advantage of that portion of the LGPL. Things like, e.g. Reaper are...

Re: Jack setup issueswith some software

By the way: I think it's a pity that Pulseaudio (in the distributions) has become established and not jackd I'm not so sure, I think they both have their uses: for example, JACK forces all applications to use the same sample rate. Because sample rate conversions impact both latency and sound qualit...

Re: Sitala drum plugin

Would it be helpful to create extra threads in the Developer's Section ? That would be a help for all (future) developers to grasp and discuss such basic topics and thereby gain clarity(s) or discuss optimal way(s)? I think forum threads are not great for long-term knowledge storage, the wiki might...

Re: Sitala drum plugin

With all do respect. I'm not a developer/programmer: I know very little about it and have no experience with it. First of all I would like to thank @ScottWheeler very, very much for taking Linux seriously and porting his plugin to Linux. You're the greatest man. :) Seconded ;). I don't know nothing...

The RAM is faster than writing to the hard disk and the hard disk is spared.

Yes, it would be great to check that there is indeed a tmpfs mounted on /dev/shm, which JACK would use. PR welcome!

Re: Wiki update

Whereby I find the basic idea of at that time "tmpfs" later then "shm" in the RAM great to move out since the audio in the RAM is worked off faster and the hard disk spares. I would take that into the realTimeConfigQuickScan. I'm not sure I understand what you mean, but all mean...

Re: Wiki update

@realTimeConfigQuickScan ==> max_user_watches The "increase max_user_watches by adding 'fs.inotify.max_user_watches = 524288'" I find confusing. For a newcomer, perhaps even more confusing. There are references on the net on adjusting the fs.inotify.max_user_watches value also for enhance...

Re: Why run Windows software on Linux?

Programs written for another operating system run on that operating system. All you can do to get programs to run on a different operating system are hacks and are never as stable/low on performance as on the intended operating system. Agreed Contact the companies that you would like to see run a s...
