Musikmesse Frankfurt - Who is going?

I may be the only one here who lives close to Frankfurt, but nonetheless I want to know if anyone of you is going to the Musikmesse Frankfurt this year? It should be interesting as usual.

I am really looking forward to go on Thursday, if anyone of you is there also it would be cool to meet.

70s Cop Show or 70s Porn?

After I listened to some old Toto songs and read an interview with Lenny Castro I wanted to do something with percussion in it. Since I had a little riff I liked from a tape from my old band, I started to enhance it with a distorted Hammond, some congas and a Shaker I had lying around. A friend said...

Re: Resource repository for presets etc: what to share?

hi, i like the idea. it remind me somehow the way ardour uses http://www.freesound.org to get free audio samples. by the way, is there a "standard" for ladspa to store presets (~/.ladspa) ? what about lv2 ? presets created in ardour don't seems to be available for other daw. maybe there s...

Re: Resource repository for presets etc: what to share?

In this thread , the idea came up to make a repository to store application presets, patches, templates, scripts etc. One questions is: what kinds of data, specifically, would be useful to share? Let me kick off: - ZynAddSubFX instruments - sineshaper presets - AMS patches - guitarix presets - guit...

Re: How to make the life of Linux audio newbies easier

I did a look around and wondered, what CMS kde-look.org is using and if it would be a suitable candidate. I don't have much technical experience in this field, I expected it to be a little bit easier. ;-) An up and running system would be a very big plus. I would have nothing against that, it could ...

Re: How to make the life of Linux audio newbies easier

raboof, I did a little bit of research, and there seem to be a number of CMSs with WebDAV plugins. I think we should look out for a CMS that suits our WebDAV needs, ease of administration and usability for the users.

Maybe we can ask the LMMS guys how they made their directory.

Re: How to make the life of Linux audio newbies easier

Wow, that's a long post, Pablo! :-) It seems to be more of a technical challenge than I thought. If I understand you correctly, the suggested script (1.) depends on the distros, which are different with the packges they use and what structure they have in general. Of course you are right that we sho...

Re: Sound librarian needed

I have no experience with a DMS, but I would sort the files into different folders which represent categories. If you use KDE, you could also tag the files and find them rather quickly, I guess. But with that amount of data every way of organising seems like a long and tedious task. Good luck with t...

Re: which song is coming out of your speakers right now?

Expresso Love, Dire Straits. From the Alchemy Album, which was the first album my father let me put on the turntable myself when I was five years old.. Ah, sweet memorys.

Re: How to make the life of Linux audio newbies easier

I have written something about my idea, incorporating some thoughts from AudioStatic and Chipfryer. You can read it here . It is a document on Google, you can collaborate with me on this, but I will need your e-mail address so that I can invite you. The document so far only contains my thoughts on t...

Re: How to make the life of Linux audio newbies easier

Jan what wonderful ideas, others too. Here's my preference from the standpoint of someone who is still very much learning. 1. Researching all the little pieces you want to have (plugins etc.), eventually learn to compile them This is pivotal to my thinking. Compiling alone is the single #1 needed s...

Re: How to make the life of Linux audio newbies easier

As I see it now, this is not so much a technical challenge, but a creative one. What does a beginner session need in terms of different programs and what should be delivered as presets? Very good point to think about and to put in writing. I haven't dug in LASH or LADI myself yet but it might be a ...

Re: How to make the life of Linux audio newbies easier

AutoStatic, I think the modeular approach is what makes Linux stand out from the rest, and I wouldn't want to change that. But I think providing templates wouldn't hide the modular approach, but make it more visible and understandable, because that's where the intial problem lies, I think. Imagine a...

Re: How to make the life of Linux audio newbies easier

Thanks, Chipfryer. The problem as I see it lies in the nonexistence of a system where you can just start. Of course there always is a learning curve, but if I take GarageBand as an example, it has what I try to explain. GarageBand has templates - very good templates - with which beginners can work e...
