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...

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

I used to get a recorded distorted guitar with a tone that I was happy with, distorted yet controlled: https://www.dropbox.com/s/3mqbvo84dq8hw8t/take_GOOD.wav?dl=0 I just used Guitarix with one of its default settings (been a while and didn't document it, but I'm 99% sure it was kokoko3/dist2). It w...

Re: My Gx_head_amp recordings get "fried" no matter what I do

Well, as long you ain't involve a stereo modulation plugin like Chorus,Flanger or Phasor, both channels been identical, so recording only one channel will give you a proper mono signal, the same as if it was just one mono channel, not only a half channel or signal. At least, a stereo channel consis...

Re: My Gx_head recordings get "fried" no matter what I do

Thank you both for replying @Tramp: Ouch, your reply outsmarts me and leaves me k.o. on the floor from the second line. I had it coming for asking, but hey, I had to try. Thank you for taking the time to explain, in the parts that I don't get I'll take your word for it... ;) This is the thing with t...

Re: My Gx_head recordings get "fried" no matter what I do

Ok, so I guess that replies my question: Gx_Head_amp gets "fried" the moment you take knobs beyond zero... This creates me a doubt: Guitarix mimics analog amps. Analog gear does not clip at 0db. However, from your reply, one would say the gx_head_amp db values get transferred "as is&q...

Re: My Gx_head recordings get "fried" no matter what I do

Thank you for replying. Could you answer me this simple question?: if you try to record Gx_head_amp in your DAW, does it clip to +18db minimum? In other words, is that expected Guitarix behavior, or it's just me? From what I gather you are somewhat involved in Guitarix development, so your answer wo...

If it was yesterday on IRC that was drwhat and me. Yes, it was, and yes you were... :) Thank you for giving it a try (I wrote "forum" by mistake before, I meant the IRC)... This is my Guitarix setup, it's just the Nuclear/Standard preset, with the output volume lowered to 0: guitarix_pres...

My Gx_head_amp recordings get "fried" no matter what I do

Hi, firstly a clarification, by gx_head_amp I mean the Guitarix module that usually goes connected to gx_head_fx... (I've seen that there's another project called gx_head that works as standalone). Here is my case: I try to record gx_head_amp into a DAW (I've tried: Reaper, Ardour, and also Audacity...

Re: ladspa to vst wrapper?

I just want to say a quick thank you for this wrapper. I recently moved to Reaper and, although overall I love it, I was finding hard to use Reaper's plugins after 9 years used to LADSPA. Of course there is always Carla, but it creates an additional step in the workflow and it's a bit cumbersome... ...

Re: Embarassing things you did in your first recordings

In my, not one, but two first demos after I started the home recording thing, I wanted to stay sparse, so the songs were only 1 voice + 1 guitar track. In fact I was so parse that the guitar was recorded DI, and that was it; as the guitar was acoustic, I thought it was fine. I didn't discover the cr...

Re: Guitar tone sounds harsh and boxy

@ Funkmuscle, thank you for your recommendation, I'll have to check it out when my gear budget recovers from some recent acquisitions I had to make. I have to tell, however, that I don't understand the sales process of these guys; their site has a lot of letter but no sound at all. If you want to li...

Re: Guitar tone sounds harsh and boxy

Thank you for the suggestions. Wow, I didn't know neither Airwindows Energy (which just worked ootb into Carla, and what a great tool it is), nor how to use a convolver; both have already been great improvements to my tone. Tramp (or anybody), would you have a suggestion of another impulse response ...

Guitar tone sounds harsh and boxy

Hello, would someone check this guitar excerpt and try to tell me what is wrong with my guitar sound? https://www.dropbox.com/s/5sbfkmoko0kimxx/random_fragment.ogg?dl=0 Lately it's been sounding harsh and grainy, and I just can't find the cause. I've A/B tested my whole sound chain to and fro, and r...
