Re: is Hydrogen better than Ardour for drums

I can't help but mention another option, I don't know if very popular but just to put it on the table... I used to have this kind of problems. Ardour (version 4 I think), and later Qtractor's Midi editor were both highly unstable, lacking basic functionality like reliable copy-paste (!) and sometime...

Re: Getting "cannot allocate memory" error, although running in real time

any idea of what they could mean? They all happen within a second, so I think this is simply part of the process of shutting down JACK. Nothing to worry about. :) Yup, I've been using my system some more these days and it's rock solid (I'm able to record midi drums LIVE for the first time ever!), s...

In the case of Ubuntu Studio 19, didn't have to install it, it came with it already.

Re: Getting "cannot allocate memory" error, although running in real time

Success! Thank you so much merlyn, the jack_control command finally did the trick: good bye to the cannot allocate error, for all qjackctl configurations, and even after rebooting. There's a peculiar side effect, though. Things go well during the session (although I still have to test further), but ...

Re: Getting "cannot allocate memory" error, although running in real time

Thank you for all the answers. This error is not really critical, my system is quite stable now, but I wanted to "iron out" the problem just in case it could influence others... So I think by the moment I'm going to live with it and wait until Ubuntu updates systemd (or better said, until ...

Re: Getting "cannot allocate memory" error, although running in real time

Thank you so much to both of you for your suggestions... @Linuxmusician01: I've tried the command you provide and, on the positive side, the output shows no "lockdown" message. I opened a project in Reaper and it seemed to work and be very stable. However, it seems to have a very high late...

Getting "cannot allocate memory" error, although running in real time

Hi, I recently installed Ubuntu Studio 19, and I'm in the process of optimizing it for my laptop. I recently completed the tests of Realtime Config Quick Scan, with everything showing "good" with the exception of "Realtime kernel" (a requirement that, as I understand according to...

Re: Where do you "Set $SOUND_CARD_IRQ"?

Thank you again for all the responses. I love it when I get to know a bit better how everything works at the "guts" level... @Crocoduck: thank you for the system to check IRQ. I was doing it in a different way and I wasn't sure if I did it right; I checked interrupts with cat /proc/interru...

Re: Where do you "Set $SOUND_CARD_IRQ"?

Thank you again for all the info. It's been very useful and of great clarification to me. are you on the latest version of the script? Aaah, nope, sorry, just noticed. I found that script a long time ago, and kept it in my computer; I didn't know that it was an "alive" project, and was afr...

Re: Where do you "Set $SOUND_CARD_IRQ"?

Thank you for the responses. The video is unfortunately unwatchable, at least for my eyes/screen :roll: I can't distinguish what the terminal says. So I tried raboof's command: $ SOUND_CARD_IRQ=129 ./realTimeConfigQuickScan.pl and I get: Can't locate QuickScanEngine.pm in @INC (you may need to insta...

Where do you "Set $SOUND_CARD_IRQ"?

Hi, I'm going through the points of Realtime Config Quick Scan script in order to tune my new system, so far with great success, but now I've found something I don't know how to do: ** Set $SOUND_CARD_IRQ to the IRQ of your soundcard to enable more checks. Where exactly do you set that variable? I'v...

Re: Latest recordings -- what can i improve

The first one: what a great voice and song! I have a bit of a pet peeve with the "gaspings" at the beginning of the phrasings, they take me a bit out of the song, and I usually lower them down or even remove them in my own stuff, but I've observed that a lot of people just leave them as th...

Re: Issues with recording with audacity + rakarak!!

From what you describe, what might be happening is that you think you're recording Rakarrack, but in fact what Audacity is recording is the direct input from the guitar. Then that recorded track gets directed to Rakarrack, and that's why it changes as you change Rakarrack settings. To test this, try...

Re: Other Software: vlc simple alternatives ?

My favorite was Aqualung, which had the exact number of features for me, but I haven't been able to find it recently, maybe it has been discontinued. So I recently found Audacious, which is very simple to use, has a non-bloated interface, and yet it allows creating playlists, drag and drop of files....

Re: Drums in Ardour

For what is worth, I got kicked out of drums editing out of frustration from Ardour (surrealistic behavior, instability proved in 20" after failing to perform the simplest operations), and Qtractor (more stable, but lacking very basic functionalities, and having the nerve of DESTROYING your wor...
