Re: The hard Linux audio experience

I might have missed it, if already suggested, but if I was you, baconature, I'd install the KXStudio ISO or AV Linux. This should give a ready-to-roll system with the very least of research/fiddling. In KXStudio, it is very easy to configure a bridge so that all ALSA sound is sent to JACK. This mean...

Re: Best motherboard/CPU for recording?

You might find linuxquestions.org good for the more general stuff. One to add to the list, anyway.

Re: Why learn music theory?

Very nicely put, and, even though I guess I knew this,
chords do not hang in the air by themselfs it's what's around them that gives them flavor
The way you put it makes it click --- so you taught me some music theory :)

Re: The Friday Interview

Great!

I can't imagine liking anything described as "brutal death metal, but I can imagine liking Bent!"

As the interviews move outside of the small circle that I have encountered online, they bring more and more. Truly horizon-widening.

Re: Why learn music theory?

Surely, if a person is interested in music, then they are ... interested in music? This goes for listeners/audience just as much as music makers. Yes, maybe it is optional, but if a person can spend hours understanding software and making it work, I'd be surprised if that person has no interest in h...

Re: Latency

There is an expectation that virtualisation will work magic. This is partly because it is a technology that has been sold heavily into commercial situations as working magic. Running three machines? Virtualise two of them and throw away the "unwanted" hardware. True, my understanding is su...

Re: Internet connection with KXStudio

I could actually go buy a router and avoid this whole issue but that goes counter to my will to reduce energy usage by adding yet another piece of equipment that plugs in, demanding more electricity. I hate that stuff. Yes, but really, it is the way to go. running PPoE on your computer is kludge fo...

Re: Basics of Recording

I gave up pretensions of musicianship a few years ago and I haven't needed to record anything in a while --- but I still find this stuff fascinating, and...
