Re: My new metal song

I'm terrible at this stuff, so take my comments for what they are worth... just trying to provide some feedback... The overall sound quality is great: all the instruments come through clearly... Maybe some more low end is needed? But maybe it's just the combination of YouTube quality + my headphones...

Re: Soloing strategies

in the middle I've got this big synth solo Generally, if I say this sentence, it means that I have a fragment of that solo already in my head (that's how I know that a solo belongs in there). Then, out of simple cohabitation with the song, new ideas emerge. I treasure especially moments when I'm di...

Re: Jam Loops - A rock jam app for Android made with open software

Thank you for your feedback, I'm glad you enjoyed the app. :) I would love to use F-Droid, however only the tracks inside the app are created with open source; the app itself was created using an .apk generator service that, alas, is closed software (I can't program in Java). As for releasing the tr...

Jam Loops - A rock jam app for Android made with open software

This is an app I made, a collection of rock loops for Android with different tempos from 84 to 166 bpm. They were made with the usual suspects Ardour, Audacity, Hydrogen and Rakarrack. I thought I'd put it here in case someone likes to take a peek... :) https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=...

Re: The cult of John Option

For our videos and our music we don’t use proprietary software.
In particular, for our videos, we use kdenlive.


Good to know that Linux is in such good state in the video producing area. I knew about the good results in audio, but I thought video was not still there. Cool. :D

Re: The cult of John Option

Thank you for your music, I just listened to a few tunes ("Where is my car" is in my head right now... very catchy!) Also, the videos are very creative, how did you do the scrolling effect in "you fill my soul"? And, I'm afraid I won't like the answer, but do you do the videos wi...

Re: Electric guitar time stretch - quality differences between Ardour and Audacity?

Thank you for your replies guys. I actually bit the bullet yesterday and did some AB test of a guitar track, and, unless I'm doing something silly elsewhere configuration wise, I can confirm that Audacity time stretching works better; the same guitar track, with a 10% stretch in Ardour sounded like ...

Electric guitar time stretch - quality differences between Ardour and Audacity?

I've stretched vocals and bass using Audacity, and the results have been good (by stretch I mean stretching the reference track to a lower tempo, then recording bass or singing to it, and then shrinking the recorded track into the original tempo we want the song to be). I then export those tracks to...

Why is there values mismatch between amixer and alsamixer?

I'd like to set a keyboard-driven volume control (+ key for volume up, - for volume down) that is coherent with the volume levels used by alsamixer. My Internet research shows that the command to use for that would be amixer sset. However, if I open alsamixer, and in a different terminal I send amix...

Re: Kick starting creativity

I compose most of my songs in a crappy old guitar, with a crack covered with dutch tape and the strings waay far from the neck. Very often nothing comes out of it, but under such constrains, when something is good you really know it's good, because there's no place to hide: voice+creaky chords, and ...

Re: best distro for old pc, or other solutions

Puppy Studio is very fast because it runs in RAM + it uses the Real Time kernel.
But it is not longer maintained... :roll:
