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...

Re: When you release your music, do you credit Linux?

My stance on the matter has changed along the years. I used to credit Linux and stick logos wherever I could. But at a certain point, stating the fact so much started to feel a bit forced to me. Like when a country with a small film industry launches a movie and they say things like "a movie th...

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
