Re: Best sound card to buy?

I have an Alesis Multimix 4 USB that works well under linux. It was the only thing I could afford. Don't buy it, my experience has not been good with it. It works great under linux but it's not a good interface.

Re: Unaware of a Direction (was Live sequencing with Hydrogen)

It's not easy to let go a song, one could be adding /changing stuff forever on it! I'm glad you learned a lot from th experience and as you generously shared the whole process, I (and I'm sure I'm not the only one) have learned a lot as well! So, thanks for sharing. The song is awesome and it does s...

Re: What language would you recommend me to start diving into?

QT isn't a language, it's a GUI ToolKit :) Most audio app's are written in C or C/C++ some are written in python. If you relay like to dive into the Audio Application Development and write or edit jack audio applications, I guess you cant do it without learning C/C++. jack itself is written in C, w...

What language would you recommend me to start diving into?

I have a question, but first I'll give a brief intro. I've been using linux (Ubuntu) for about a year and a half and it completely changed my way of aproaching software. Open source philosophy is great and I would love to contribute something other than my opinion on software from a point of view of...

Re: Which distribution?

Hi, I bought an Alesis Multimix 4 USB that works on linux. It's a piece of sh*t! My advice is to avoid it like the plague, the phantom power gives you only 5v, the inherent snoise it has it very, very loud. Avoid it, I didn't get away with it and now I'm investing on a decent one. I liked the saffir...

Re: guitarix 0.12 SVN - some remarks

That's the way to make a constructive criticism, I kkow some people could get offended when someone corrects their grammar, I hope is not the case with Guitarix's developers. It's already awesome and the correction of the small issues you mention would make it even better.

I will try to suggest this to Rui Nuno Capela.

Thanks,
I would say that Rui is against the idea of making an all-in-one software but asking for it don't hurt, right?

Re: The new zynaddsubfx ui in QT

I use yoshimi, it's the same, more stable (at least on my machine) and the GUI is nicer, it's almost the same but without the random font sizes.

Re: Project to refer to: band just released 100%-FOSS-made album

This is very encouraging because even if I knew that linux audio/graphics have a good level that would allow one to release a record, it's good to have a proof of that. I'm currently on the process of learning cinelerra/blender, I feel pretty solid in audio (after several months) because my aim is t...

Hi nickleus, long time no see, you were, I believe, my first contact in the linux audio world. I've come a long way since then...relatively.

Glad to see you

Here in Germany there's a police series called "Alarm für Cobra 11 - Die Autobahnpolizei".

Re: Killswitch effect

Well i realized it's actually simpler than what I posted before. Just with the calf-git pulsator plugin I culd pull it off. The only thing you have to do is to connect the left output (or right, but only one output) from the pulsator to both L & R system playback ports, that way you are only listeni...

Re: Killswitch effect

I've had some success. This is what I did: Ingredients: calf git plugins (pulsator, gate) In jack I hooked my guitar to the pulsator, then I activated the sidechain in the gate plugin, and connected the L channel from the pulsator to the sidechain IN of the gate. Then the gate OUT to the system. Aft...
