Re: Is a PCI card much better than an USB one

I've got a M-Audio UNO USB interface: http://www.m-audio.com/products/en_us/Uno.html It works flawlessly under Linux. May not be the most high-tech or powerful interface but I use it to interface my Korg Triton workstation with Rosegarden and Hydrogen. Never had a problem with it and it was fairly i...

Re: Can someone tell me the difference please?

The audiophile is a single input with MIDI connections. The Delta 66 (this is what I have) has two stereo ins and 2 stereo outs, or 4 and 4 monos, as well as S/PDIF connections on the card. Also, doesn't have a MIDI connection. I strongly recommend eBay for the Deltas. You can pick up a Delta 66 or ...

Re: OmniStudio Troubles

Here's my input, if you have 6 inputs and 6 outputs and the 6 inputs are stereo than that means that you can run 12 mono inputs. So, I would go with atleast a 12 channel mixer. Unless I understood your wrong. Nope, I think you understood perfectly. I've been doing a lot of reading on the subject an...

Re: Is a PCI card much better than an USB one

Hi, and welcome! I mostly agree with studio32: by and large, PCI is much better than USB, esp. USB1. Having said that, let me ask a question. You said you are interested in making music with MIDI instruments and need to buy a MIDI interface for your computer. Are you only using the interface for MID...

Re: Opinions Wanted

Maybe you can tell us which equipment and software, plugins etc. you have used for this? Nothing too complex was used on this. The drums were created with Hydrogen. Everything else was recorded as MIDI into Rosegarden using my Korg Triton Le. Once I had all the various parts in Rosegarden and arran...

Opinions Wanted

All, I've been struggling with this piece of music for a VERY long time (I think I originally wrote the intro part in about 2000 or 2001) and I think I'm finally starting to hone in on the final version. I'd be interested in getting feedback with regard to the song structure, instrument selections, ...

Re: Rosegarden is making me crazy!

Have you tried getting traces for the crashes and notifying the Rosegarden developers? No, I haven't, and I should. I'm a developer as well, so I definitely know better. I guess the problem with this is two-fold: First, I'm not really getting repeatable crashes. Rosegarden's sequencer just seems to...

Rosegarden is making me crazy!

I've been trying to finish a song for the last couple of days. It's required me to spend quite a few hours with Rosegarden and I'm almost ready to scream in frustration. It's crashing randomly, and if that weren't bad enough it's refusing to save voice configuration information for the tracks so tha...

Re: New Hardware..suggestions?

I've been told by the misses that I musn't use the main desktop (the AMDx2 8gb jobbie - I've also since discovered that it has 4 dual core CPUs in it, so this is a double blow as it can easily handle everything I could throw at it.) :-( I have a couple of PCs in my office/studio, as well. The "Big ...

Re: New Hardware..suggestions?

dchurch24: Your equipment and requirements sound very close to mine. Instrumentally, I'm using a couple of guitars, a bass, microphones, and a Korg Triton Le keyboard/sequencer. The way I work and am configured is this: The Korg is attached to the computer with a $20 UNO USB interface for MIDI data ...

Re: Oooooh!

Welcome welcome! On the soundcard front, when I set my home studio up a few weeks ago I picked up a used M-Audio Delta 66 off eBay with a Omni I/O interface for $109. Other than having some issues with the Omni (it looks like abused jacks) it's working really well. I plugged it into an already-exist...

Re: how to build your own ubuntu rt-kernel?

Just because I'm curious, why are you building your own kernel? I used to do this all the time a few years ago, back when the kernel modules weren't quite a reliable as they are now and you usually had to build your own kernels if you wanted all your hardware to work. These days the modular kernels ...
