ZynAddSubFX explained - a new video from unfa

Hey! After a long break I'm back with LZW, a series of videos for LMMS and ZynAdSubFX users, who want to learn. "LZW" stands for "LMMS & ZynAddSybFX Watch & Learn" In this video I explain what were and why, showing most of what ZynAddSubFX has in it - leaving you some minor things to figure out by y...

"Cyber Funky" by unfa

Hey! This track is made with LMMS and ZynAddSubFX - no samples, pure synthesis. I wanted to get those modern drumandbassish punchy drums feel, a bit influenced with neurofunk sounds. Would you party to this? unfa - Cyber Funky (v. 09) on Soundcloud https://i4.sndcdn.com/artworks-000078147324-39ent1-...

Re: Can't start JACK - " jackdbus is not available"

Thanks Eino, however the problem has somehow solved itself after rebooting.
Now Cadence seems to work fine with JACK again.
Everything has got back to normal - maybe it was the lack of jackd2 package?
I'm not sure if I dare to try reproducing this behvoir right now...

Can't start JACK - " jackdbus is not available"

I've installed KX Studio 14.04 today - a fresh start (Ubuntu Studio 14.04 had Audacity and LMMS problems so I decided to go with KX this time). I've installed Tux Guitar (I need to edit guitar TABs compatible with Guitar Pro) and during the installation, something changed with jack server. I can't q...

Looking for a lookahead sidechain gate plugin

Hey! I'm trying to get a "auto duck" effect in Ardour first for podcasting, but later on probably as a seperate effect for live broadcastng. The main goal is to make background music play much louder when the voice is silent, but to atenuate quickly when something is being said. I thougt that having...

Demixing stereo track into multiple sources

Hi! I've been thinking of a signal processing unit that could be used to extract multiple mono tracks from a single stereo track based on different loudnesses (X/Y mode) and/or timing/phase (A/B mode) of nearly identical spectral patterns present in L and R channels. The first test could be to extra...

What is Calf Emphasis effect?

I've installed Ubuntu Studio 14.04 Beta 2 and started playing around with the exciting new stuff. Then I found this - it looks like some specialized hard-coded EQ: CalfEmphasis.jpg I've heard that vinyl masters needed a special "tilt EQ" applied to reduce bass and emphesize the tops, and that a reve...

Why do we sing out of tune on stage?

Hey! I've released an album lately, and I've played a live gig to promote it. I was singing alone to played-back instrumental tracks. It was a small place, and small show (under 40 people in the audience) and it wasn't very loud. I had 2 front speakers (I was standing right between them) and one mon...

Re: Looking for a graphical waveshaper (distortion)

Thanks, guys!

As I'm looking for OpenSource stuff, the AMS to LV2 stuff is probably going to hit the spot I guess.

Maybe I should pass this idea to the makers of Calf plugins - they got some really neat stuff and know how to make great GUIs too.

Looking for a graphical waveshaper (distortion)

Years ago I've seen such an effect processor in FL Studio (Fruity Loops): http://amplifon-audio.com/sound/html/img_plug/plugin_fx_waveshaper.gif I've been using similar but simplified signal processor in ALSA Modular Synth (AMS). Is there open implementation? Maybe a LV2 plugin that does that? I thi...
