Re: quickest way to loop a MIDI drum file?

Thanks for the reminder!! I have an old copy of BackupBand and liked it. I see development has continued! Yay! I still want to know in general the quickest, simplest way to open MIDI files and play them with the ability loop and change tempo etc. But the alternate suggestion here is also totally wel...

quickest way to loop a MIDI drum file?

Okay, so I have some MIDI files of drum beats. I want to just open them and loop them. What's the fastest options? I successfully dragged one to Qtractor, looped it, set output of Qtractor to Qsynth. That worked, but it's a bit tedious. I got it to play in VLC, but it won't loop for some reason! I t...

qtractor not showing in launcher

Maybe this is a bug to report at the repo issues on GitHub…

Qtractor is installed, but I can only start it from CLI or Claudia Launcher. I don't see it in krunner or my application menu etc.

I'm using KXStudio with KDE Neon

Re: Nootka has continued getting updated!

That seems like a reasonable request to submit to the author or even to code up if someone's capable of it. I'm most excited about the long-term possibility for software like this to interact with Musescore and things like that.

Nootka has continued getting updated!

This isn't latest news, but no news has been posted here in a long time. http://nootka.sourceforge.net is still being updated and works better than ever. Works on both GNU/Linux and Android, and it's fully FLO software

Re: Swingify / Waltzify other alterations? How to?

Sure, MIDI is easy in this regard (relatively anyway). In fact, MIDI is easy enough that there's all the complex things of various groove-quantizing but I have the impression no FLO program supports that even though it's been in proprietary DAWs for decades… It's clearly *possible* with audio, and y...

Re: PlayItSlowly doesn't start after reinstalling KUbuntu

Mixxx also does beat analyzing and key analysis and can automatically loop a number of beats and do key changes… The ideal would be for someone to design a new skin for Mixxx specifically for this purpose where there's only one deck instead of two and highlighting the interface elements relevant to ...

Re: Breaking changes in Carla Plugin Host

strange. i can see all my windoze plugins installed with wine on one system (ubunty 18.04), but no windoze plugins show up on another system (ubuntu 16.04), both use wine-rt from KXStudio repos and 32-bit windows architecture. anyway, i don't care much about them, since using windose stuff only for...

Re: Breaking changes in Carla Plugin Host

Right, but I did *all* of those things (enable experimental, go to that section, enable bridges, then rescan (Windows VST does show in the list of formats there), and I made sure the locations included Windows VSTs. I *still* see none of the Windows VSTs I have showing in Carla.

Re: Breaking changes in Carla Plugin Host

Thanks for your principles and standing up for all us users. I'm not sure about the direct issues with JUCE, and while I don't like zero-tolerance or black-and-white "you're with us or against us" type of thinking, I think responsible developers should make sure they fully understand concerns before...

Re: PlayItSlowly doesn't start after reinstalling KUbuntu

Side-note: there are better tools than PlayItSlowly even within fully-FLO software. I found Mixxx to be very good for this (adjust the prefs to allow +/- 80% tempo shift), and there's also Sonic Visualiser which has huge range of sound and lots of transcribing tools… The PlayItSlowly dev himself ack...

Swingify / Waltzify other alterations? How to?

This must be feasible enough, but I need some help to actually do this (and I want it to become easy for other end-users too). The original http://swingify.cloudapp.net/ is long gone (it's on Wayback Machine but not usable). There's this working thing: http://www.musinformatics.com/swingify which I'...

Re: transition everything to Discourse

Here's another reason why not to have Discourse: No JavaScript? You can't browse the forums and threads at all. The page will just be white. I know that sounds silly, but have you guys ever used NoScript in Firefox? It's a handy tool for blocking out malicious scripts. This is outdated. I don't kno...
