Re: AV Linux takes very long to boot

Yes, you're right, I guess it's a good practice doing so, due note taken for the future. The thing is my previous distro for a long time has been Puppy Linux, which, on top of running as root, has a strange folder structure, so it took me a while to get a hold of the "normal" Linux file hi...

Re: Guitar distortion has become harsh and I don't know why

Yeah, I've tried using 48000 several times along this process and didn't seem to help. I've usually used more often 44000 for "legacy" reasons (the project was started with that rate, and changing it halfway was a mess), and because 48000 gives a slightly superior latency, but I'll keep in...

Re: Guitar distortion has become harsh and I don't know why

Hi, it's me again. In this time tried to move to AV Linux but it didn't work well in my system (~1 minute to boot, lost wifi, etc...), so I finally moved back to Ubuntu Studio. Therefore I haven't been able to update my Guitarix version (let it be known in the world wide web: updating Guitarix in Ub...

Re: AV Linux takes very long to boot

Thank you for the info, I'm not going to try it now, but I will in the future (I'm back to Ubuntu Studio, with everything configured, and of course to discover that despite all my prep efforts I've lost some valuable stuff... it seems an unavoidable risk you get with every reinstall)...

Re: AV Linux takes very long to boot

Thank you, I've given up at the moment after suffering other problems (wifi disappeared and nowhere to be recovered, new install from scratch showing the same slowness, locales acting funny...). This is too steep of a learning curve for me atm, but these tools will be very useful when I try next tim...

AV Linux takes very long to boot

Hi, I just installed AV Linux on my laptop, and I've noticed its boot time is very long; from Grub to login screen, it takes 1 minute 2 seconds, while all the other distros I've ever used are in the 10 seconds ballpark. Additionally, during the booting I get screens and screens of messages, first wi...

Re: Need a new Linux-compatible audio Interface

Thank you for all the info, and sorry if my comments on Behringer caused some blisters... Munch munch... This is the sound of me eating my prejudices towards that brand. I can do without the Amazonian Rainforest Virgins at the moment... :P

Re: Need a new Linux-compatible audio Interface

Thank you all for the info... Despite a lot of good reviews, I'm trying to avoid at all costs the Focusrite because I have a laptop, and they have a bad record of "USB whining" (found several cases). As for Behringer, I saw an audiophile forum thread that really takes away from you any des...

Re: Need a new Linux-compatible audio Interface

I have no problems with the Scarletts' headphone amps (Solo, 2i2, 2i4). I use AKG K702 and K812 headphones. Thank you for the info. From what I've gathered, with the Focusrite it's a hit-or-miss thing depending on what headphones you use. It seems (at least according to this video: https://www.yout...

Re: Need a new Linux-compatible audio Interface

Hi, from what I've read, low headphone output seems to be the weak spot of the Focusrite. Does NI Komplete have adequate headphone levels?

Re: Guitar distortion has become harsh and I don't know why

Thank you so much for the instructions... Upgrading Guitarix was a breeze, and it will remain that way from now on... :D I checked alsamixer. My audio interface (Samson Gtrack) only has one control, "PCM". Indeed it was at 100%, so I reduced it to 70%, but it didn't seem to change the soun...

Re: Guitar distortion has become harsh and I don't know why

Hi, thank you for replying... The Guitarix version I use is 0.34.0 When you mentioned it in the previous thread, I looked into updating Guitarix, but it seemed not an easy task, I didn't really understand the process; the information I found mentioned that first you had to uninstall manually your cu...
