Re: Tracktion plugins (retromod, waverazor) crash in all my DAWs

I don't know about retromod and waverazor, but I used to love some of the Tracktion stuff (especially the DelayStudio and Master Mix). The crashes started for me a couple years ago. I tried to check out Waveform last year, but it froze my machine entirely. I got no response from the developers after...

Thanks as always hermann. I use Guitarix all the time, it's my #1 amp sim by a mile.

Re: Stickers!

Today I was surprised to get an envelope in the mail shipped from "Nederland". I observed a flagrant violation of privacy: somewhere en route it had been torn open and then clumsily taped shut. Inside I found a whole pile of these stickers! Who else wants one of these? I'd def. slap one of these on...

Re: Distortion plugin for voice

Calf Saturator is good on anything, but it might not be as extreme as you would like.

Couture is super fun for this sort of thing. It's a bargain but not free.

Re: Can somebody demystify JACK for me?

Maybe the first thing to determine is whether you really need JACK. Paul Davis (the original developer of JACK and the primary developer of Ardour) now recommends that people use Ardour5 with ALSA instead of JACK, unless there is a specific reason to use JACK. Michael is right on with this, and it ...

Re: Best Platforms to Share Creative Commons Music?

BandCamp supports CC licensing too. They are not libre, but they give good exposure, offer ease of use, and I think they are actually doing something progressive for the recording industry (supporting alternative licenses, flexible pricing, open file formats for downloads). Only downside for me: no...

Re: 2019 Milestone recording

This is quite something. Amazing that it only took you two days, it sounds like it would have been a massive undertaking getting it all to fit together. It's definitely super-visual, I could imagine it going very well with an animated short where the scene or style changes along with the music.

Re: midi browser

With Mixbus (I assume the same with Ardour) you can audition MIDI files using the import function. It has a browser that lets you scroll through files.

You probably want something standalone, but this would work in a pinch.

Happy Birthday Ardour

There are a lot of great DAWs on Linux, but where would we be without Ardour? 20 years is impressive for any project.

Re: Controlled By Unseen Forces - Electro, G#min, 94 bpm

Really nice and unusual groove you have going here and I love the detailed craftsmanship. I would wish for a little something more in the bass part but it certainly doesn't need it.

Re: Lost and Found - My "Albumatross"

Congratulations on getting this out milo! It sounds lovely. I may be back with comments after digesting it more, but I'm not sure if I'll have anything to add--these sound like honest, personal songs sincerely performed and well-produced. Isn't that what we're all going for in the end? My hat is off...

Re: Overdrive/distortion recommendation

Also try using the Guitarix Tube Screamer (or any of their pedal sims) as a send effect. You can blend in and EQ to taste.

Re: ableton

It's hard to understand exactly what you want (this kind of music is sort of alien to me) but Bitwig has an area to the left of the track editor with which can play "scenes" or clips or loops or whatever you call them. You can play Bitwig with a touch interface if you have one. https://cdn.bitwig.co...

Re: Any good Rhodes sfz, lv2, vst?

Two nice Rhodes and a Wurly are available as an add on from Pianoteq. Not cheap but they're native and sound great.
