Re: Linux REAPER works!

There's been a 5.352 built on Jessie and a new libSwell built on Jessie, as some people uing older Linuxes were not able to launch the Stretch-built versions anymore. So if you run into problems, try the 5.352 version. The 5.351 version was working fine for me on KDE neon (ubuntu 16.04 based) with t...

Re: Linux REAPER works!

New update from Justin Frankel on the pre-release REAPER forum: "Just updated to 5.351. One of the updates includes support for realtime thread scheduling -- if JACK is set to use realtime, then REAPER will automatically prioritize its threads just lower than JACK's priority. The logic to handle thi...

Re: The Patchbay family

Just to follow up: I ended up using the patchbay in Qjackctl. It did what I needed. I also switched to jackd1, just because I ended up with less xruns and made the alsa midi/jack midi stuff a little easier. But now I have all my connections working just by starting jack with qjackctl and loading up ...

Re: The Patchbay family

Thanks for the advice re: aj-snapshot. I wasn't aware of that. It will be a few days before I get a chance to work with my linux music setup again, but I will check it out and report back how things have worked out.

Re: The Patchbay family

I am getting interested in session management for the first time because the native Linux REAPER has recently become pretty usable (much thanks to linuxmusicians member ubuntuuser for their role in that :) ). My problem is that REAPER does not autoconnect to jack like Ardour or Tracktion (which I ha...

Re: kxstudio repos + which OS? What do you like?

MX-16. It's Debian stable + Xfce, and their community repos have useful things like the Liquorix kernel which works very nicely for low latency audio. Combined with KXStudio repos, it is hard to beat.

Tracktion will release new DAW -"Waveform" also for Raspberry Pi

There's been a little discussion at their KVR froum, and some pre-NAMM videos out there. I got an email from Tracktion this morning spelling the news out a little more clearly. Looks like some dedicated mixer views are coming to the interface, and things have been streamlined enough that it will run...

Re: VST on Linux?

Not sure if you figured this out on your own by now, but when running REAPER in wine, most windows vsts work out of the box in it. It's really the best solution for running windows vsts in Linux - REAPER is made to work well with wine, and the vsts come along for the ride.

Re: will there be a 16-output carla-vst?

Thanks for the info - I was disappointed when I couldn't get the vst to work in Tracktion 7. Time to look into that again :)

Re: Manjaro (Arch) Has Realtime Kernels

This ia very good news, which I missed because I had stopped using Manjaro due to lack of certain things I use (like carla-git in AUR wasn't working). It seems carla is compliling again, and with these new rt kerels it may be worth checking out Manjaro again :)

Re: Tracktion 5 is now free for all

I was testing Tracktion when it was free for Linux beta testers from T5 - early T6. It stayed free for those beta testers when T6 became officially supported for Linux. If I recall, I almost gave up on it during the T5 stage because of crashes. It became stable for T6. I eventually bought T7, which ...

Re: Linux Mint 18 and KXStudio repos

I've been running 64 bit Mint 18 beta with Cinnamon since it was released, with lowlatency kernel and the KXStudio repos including the gcc5 stuff. I don't have any problems with Cadence. DId you add the gcc5 repo?

Re: Zoom R8/R16/R24

I use an R16. It will work as long as you are using 16.04 - it requires at least a 4.4 kernel. I'm using it with Cadence and jack2, in synchronous mode. As it is a usb interface it should work best with 3 periods/buffer or with buffer sizes that allow even millisecond latencies a la http://wiki.linu...
