Slowpick, that is a great site. I will enjoy studying this.

Autostatic, thanks for your explanation. It makes more sense now.

Re: FCA202 no longer seen in Qjackctl

Hello all, This is an update. I think I changed things somehow when I was trying to get my hdmi sound from my computer soundcard to work out of my Philips hdtv speakers. That has not been accomplished yet. However, I found out that in qjackctl, system capture _1 and capture_2 show up in the output P...

[SOLVED]FCA202 no longer seen in Qjackctl

Dear All, Recently I posted the topic "Behringer xenyx x1622USB with FCA202 success" . A couple of days ago I did an upgrade with my Bodhi distro which brought it to 1.4. Since then my fca202 is no longer recognized in Qjackctl. I do not know what has changed to make this happen. The upgra...

Behringer xenyx x1622USB with FCA202 success

Hello Everyone, I added the Behringer fca202 firewire audio interface to the Behringer xenyx x1622USB yesterday. I researched the jack, firewire, and ffado instructions from this forum, ubuntu forum, and the ffado site. The FCA202 firewire device is listed as fully supported on the ffado site now. I...

Re: Behringer xenyx x1622USB

Dear All, I got the Behringer xenyx x1622USB to work great through the USB connection for playing back music sounds from the computer and recording. I only had to start up alsamixer and choose the correct card. It showed up as the usb card so was easy to find. Once I chose it in alsamixer I found ou...

Behringer xenyx x1622USB

Dear All, I just got this mixer for my birthday from my husband. It is supposed to work in linux. I am barely getting to know how to work it. Does anyone have any experience with this mixer? I use Bodhi with the 2.6.33-29-realtime-pae kernel. I plan to record voice and a lap harp with it. Will this ...

aeolus crashes

Dear all, It seems all of the music software I have been trying with my old midi radio shack keyboard works well now except for Aeolus. I have aeolus 0.8.4 which crashes with a segmentation fault error message in console. I have an amd quad core 3ghz 12 gigs ram with kubuntu lucid 10.04 64 bit kxstu...

Re: Puppy Studio rt 3.3 or Macpup 528

I found out from the puppy site that you cannot install kernels but you can remaster puppy to include a new kernel. I am not savvy about doing that yet. I will first install puppy 3.3rt and then install E17 as the window manager . I will let you know how it turns out.

Puppy Studio rt 3.3 or Macpup 528

Dear All, I am considering installing either puppy studio 3.3 rt or macpup 528 onto my old toshiba laptop. I have tried both livecds on my old toshiba satellite pro 85 and like them both. I would actually love the beauty, speed, and polish of the macpup 528 only with an rt kernel and tuned for audio...

Re: Sitar sound for keyboards?

Thanks again. Now my qsynth works great with my humble radio shack midi keyboard. I have updated many packages and maybe that was what did the trick. Now I am working on getting aeolus to work. Actually getting help from the aeolus site. Everything else I have tried seems to work well. I forgot abou...

Dear All, Thank you all for your help. Thank you for the dreamz vst site. I just downloaded the package. I will look forward to using it. Looks like an interesting vst site.

Re: Sitar sound for keyboards?

Thank you for your replies. Yes, Capoeira, you found a better sitar sound. I agree that they are not as good as the real thing. I am not going to be getting and playing a real one anytime soon, so I will just play with the synth sitar emulations and pretend. :) Thank you Pablo for your soundfont ins...

Re: Sitar sound for keyboards?

Thank you for your reply. I imagine the sitar is difficult to emulate. I found this youtube video http://youtu.be/Uf1YAiIp_k4, a keyboard playing a good sitar sound, I thought. After I posted I found some info on this site that lead me to the general midi wiki. There is a sitar sound that is no. 104...

Sitar sound for keyboards?

Dear All,

I am looking for an authentic sitar sound for keyboards or software synthesizers . Does anyone know if lmms, yoshimi, etc., has a nice sitar sound included or that could be added on?

I use ubuntustudio lucid.

Thank you.
