Re: New album released

I'm just hearing it for the first time thanks to the bump. The style is way off my regular menu but I think it's EXCELLENT.

Re: Any guitarists have ideas for creating this effect with plugins? Shallow Water

Thanks for the great pointers! To get Shallow Water it might be worth thinking about VCV rack, or PD where there are LFOs, filters and randomness. I thought VCV was a synth--I can put audio through it? That might be interesting if yes. What is "PD"? I can get close to some of the sounds th...

Any guitarists have ideas for creating this effect with plugins? Shallow Water

I find this sound captivating. It seems like, in theory, I should be able to replicate what it is doing. I messed around with various plug-in chains using Calf tape emulation and chorus stuff to try and replicate it but can't even get close. I think it's the randomness and also the "low pass ga...

Re: what is xrun?

Also, sometimes xruns make a click or a pop, but much of the time they leave no audible trace. So it's good to minimize them, but you don't need to obsess about them if you're not having trouble. Ardour and Mixbus (maybe others?) have a setting that will place a marker when an xrun occurs. This is a...

Klangfreund LUFS and Multimeter

Looks like official Linux versions are released (the Multimeter is new) at klangfreund.com . I've played with a native beta of their LUFS meter before, it's pretty handy the way it works across multiple tracks and can help set up an easy starting point for a mix ( this is an old video, but it shows ...

Re: Ubuntustudio 19.04 Jack Gui with new functionality

Bumping this on release day to see if anyone has tried the new Ubuntu Studio 19.04? I'm mostly curious about Ubuntu Studio Controls (the reason for this thread, which somehow escaped me before). It looks like a nice user-friendly alternative to Cadence or QjackCtl. I'm not looking to hop at the mome...

Re: The Incontinentals - "Brandy"

You guys really have the process down--this is excellent in every regard.

50 years of playing together! All of a sudden I don't feel so old. Why do I have the feeling this didn't take too long to track and the mixing was pretty painless as well? ;)

Edited to note my delight in the band name.

Re: switching from apple to linux

On top of all that it also has a 130 page illustrated User Manual full of detailed information on installing, setting up your system and getting started with Ardour. Even if you don't end up using AV, print and read the manual. It's one of (or maybe THE) best primers for getting started + learning ...

None of this should work, but somehow it all fits together and creates something beautiful. Well done!

Re: funky album produced on the big tux itself

Thanks for dropping this here Mark! Another stellar collection. The tunes are catchy as all get out, and your writing is top notch. You have a great ability to hit that sweet spot between sincere sentiment + cleverness. The move to the bridge in the song "Cheers" sounds like a Brian Wilson...

Re: Spicing up existing vocals

I agree it is hard to interpret what you want to do, but I understand it is challenging to put subtle concepts like this into words and have everyone understand the same thing. I wish people wouldn't be so easily frustrated by this challenge. When you talk about the emotion of the delivery, I think ...

Re: Fair Enough aka The AFAICT Song

I absolutely loved this. Solid pickin' and the way the vocals lift a bit in the last verse brought the ears back around. I heard a little JJ Cale in your voice as well. Looking forward to the clearing of backlog!

Re: New BSR Release - They/Them - "Taster Pack Vol. 1"

If only the Beatles was used Linux, I think they wrote something like this :wink: + some 90s vibes in the guitar and vocal sounds. This is solid stuff! Love the variety of approaches these guys can fit very comfortably inside a song. It sounds straightforward but there are all sorts of thoughtful, ...
