UR22mkII quirks?

So I've been using the steinberg ur22mkII a month-ish or more. I got some minnie maggies when I got this interface. I'm still using an old panasonic RX-540 to drive them. Pretty much all of the levels are controlled by knobs on the device (ur22mkII). With a knob to mix the inputs with the output (wo...

Re: Using Qjackctl with jackd and pulseaudio

I've gotten a bit exotic with multiple machines. On the machine with the good soundcard connected to the good speakers I have a pulse over jack setup. Mostly the same as it has been for a good while, except jackd2 now (jackdbus). Setup as follows based on #3 of the guide. http://jackaudio.org/faq/pu...

Re: HOWTO: REQUEST

Command Line based EQ for jackDBus? I tend to run a pulseaudio over jack setup when I get interested in audio. Although I've known of it for a while, I recently tried a networked pulseaudio setup. And I'm kind of liking it. Is there a command line EQ option like calf's 32 band, jackEQ, or nyquists n...

I know it's been a while.

Re: Using Qjackctl with jackd and pulseaudio

I guess I tend towards the old ways. Yes, pulseaudio is getting harder and harder to avoid. But you can enable "autospawn = no" which gives you the ability to STOP pulseaudio versus suspending pulseaudio. Which is a difference of about 100MB of available RAM (not that I've checked the spec...

Re: (Probably) hardware related noise

My guess would be power. GPU maxing out the PSU? USB power under spec? Grid power too rough for audio needs? A higher spec'd PSU? A powered USB Hub? A pure sine wave inverter / battery backup system? Just guesses of course.

Re: (Probably) hardware related noise

My guess would be motherboard or power supply. You might try using a powered usb hub to de-stress the motherboard a bit, but it probably wont make a difference. I've had cheap electret mics that when placed on my laptops LCD would click when the screen image changed. Like the counter clock on ardour...

Re: want to connect keyboard to synth via Linux

In the old days you'd connect midi devices to other midi device with a midi to midi cable. Aka hardware solutions. In software you would use qjackctl, aconnect, or other things to route the signals. You might need a usb to midi cable to physically connect to the midi input of the other keyboard. Or ...

Re: Interface box recommendation?

Quality mics and preamps would be a starting point. Which puts less emphasis on the capabilities of the recording end and it travels with you through the generations of recording tech. Otherwise record in 24 bit and at the highest bitrate that's reasonable.

Re: HP Chromebook 14 and crouton

You can change that tap to click behavior. I used to add mousedev.tap_time=0 to disable it BITD. But the newer kernels have differing names for that stuff now. And various tpconfig and other psmouse type module stuff to configure that stuff. Probably handled in udev rules these days ala /lib/udev/*....

Re: Raspberry Pi and music production

There's a phone app where the touch screen is a drumset and you finger drum. I have no ideal what it is, but the drummer in a band I play in uses it for rehearsals and brings out the set for gigs. If you could convert microphone events into midi events your could route them with qmidiroute to soft s...

Re: midi/jack issue

For me when I do that, the qjackctl connect screen shows the new device automagically. And the output of aconnect -l will change.

What does dmesg say when you toggle the on/off of the device? Perhaps it's looking for a driver and yours is not finding one.

Re: Building your own real-time kernel

Tried make localmodconfig and it reduced the outcoming linux-image package with about two thirds. Definitely a keeper! Be cautious when using that. It removes a lot of modules. Like every filesystem or device that is not currently in use on the local machine. For example iso9660 support, or loopbac...

Re: which laptop

Unless you do a lot of video encoding or 3D modeling, you probably wont notice much between cpu speeds. Amount of RAM and number of cpus seem to do more these days. A larger screen is always nice, your eyes probably don't get better with age. And other perks like power usage or battery life for the ...
