Re: Ardour Key Bindings

Never mind.
I've worked it out and defined a few of my own bindings. And they DO get stored in HOME/.config/ardour5/ardour.keys, so I can make backups or reuse them in other installations of A5.

Re: Ardour Key Bindings

Same subject but different problem. This is with Ardour 5.5 on KXStudio, English language, German keyboard. I'm slightly confused about Ardour's default key bindings. Most of the bindings listed here http://manual.ardour.org/default-keyboard-bindings/mnemonic-bindings-for-linux/ work fine but some e...

Re: Qtractor: move play head without shift

shift/ctrl + wheel will zoom in and out, centered from current mouse pointer. Great! That's what I needed. Any chance of setting the wheel sensitivity for this? If not, never mind. Great feature nonetheless. no, but there's one hacky workaround: set clip properties gain to -70dB (audio) or volume t...

Re: Qtractor: move play head without shift

Middle click is always hard because you can move the wheel instead. I hate middle clicking. This concept of left, right and middle click in Qtractor makes perfect sense to me. Personally I'm fine with middle clicking. Never accidentally moved the wheel. Which brings me to another question. Can the ...

Re: Secret (for a song)

Lovely song it is! Soft and melodic and beautifully arranged. And yes, the vocal is not loud enough.

But what's this pumping/flanging sound going on in there?
Is that some side-chain compressor doing that?

Rather irritates me. Am I the only one?

Re: Augenleuchten

Wow! I hardly ever post comments, in fact I hardly post at all, but your music really deserves some praise. Awesome production quality! Plus that mystical atmosphere in your songs (just checked out your website and a few of your releases). Really really nice! (and I'm not even a big pop fan) I gathe...

I might do that, thanks.
But let's see if falkTX can resolve it. Would be nicer if things installed cleanly.

Re: midi music from the 90s

Keep em coming. I'd love to but I'm afraid that's all of this for now. But I've been recording some completely different stuff lately (folk music with REAL musicians). I'll have to check copyright issues though before I can upload any of it. Really enjoyed these, especially 'Puzzlegrass' :D Nice th...

Re: midi music from the 90s

Thanks a lot, glad you like it.
To round things off I added the final two tracks from that time ('Pioneer' and 'Cloud Garden' made around 1997-98).

midi music from the 90s

Here are some pieces I made in the mid nineties that were my first encounters experimenting with electronic music. I had a midi-enabled E-Piano and an Atari 520ST running Cubase 1.0, and, in the synth section, a Roland SCC-1 followed later on by a Yamaha SY77. It's pure and heavily quantised midi sy...

Re: Linux REAPER works!

Great to hear all this. For me, Reaper has been the only reason to keep a copy of Windows and live with a dual-boot system. Yes, I've tried it under Wine and it worked OK, but I never got to the point where I could take full advantage of the Linux/audio/jack (KXStudio) ecosystem and use it modularly...

Re: Tascam us-122 in 12.04 and 14.04

Great, that went fine. us-122 now working in 14.04!
Just that after every bootup I have to do a 'sudo usx2yloader' and then start jack manually.
What's the best way to automate that? usx2yloader has to be run before jack gets started, I believe.
