Re: No Distortion/Drive in Rackarac/Ardour

The issue turned out to be I was "su" at the time of install and then ran Rakarrack as such. I started Qjactl before as my user. My issue now is wondering why the icon didn't populate out to the menu or anywhere visible. I guess I will have to start it manually from command line if can't track it do...

Re: No Distortion/Drive in Rackarac/Ardour

Strange I have to run Rackarrack without Qjactl to get it to work. I do get thedistortion though. No icon either. I actually need to make it work with Jack so I can use the effects in Ardour. After I start Qjactl and then run Rakarrack from command line, I get this: audioserv / # rakarrack rakarrack...

Re: No Distortion/Drive in Rackarac/Ardour

Do I change all Case 4's or just the one near line 49? Also, The file looks different than that posted above as well. Hopefully still the same stuff.

Re: No Distortion/Drive in Rackarac/Ardour

As regards the solutions they put on that other forum from the link above and post below, how would I enter this and where? " I think the problems comes from the GUI. I have a work around: diff --git a/src/Waveshaper.C b/src/Waveshaper.C index f4d339c..1a5a4b7 100644 --- a/src/Waveshaper.C +++ b/src...

Re: No Distortion/Drive in Rackarac/Ardour

The new Tango Studio where they switched to Debian is what I am using. I am trying currently to install an older version of Rackarrack as maybe that would remedy some have said. So I downloaded the 0.5.8 and untar the file. But when I ./configure, it tells me user@audioserv:~/Downloads/rakarrack-0.5...

Re: Jack problems

Yeah there is not even a hint of distortion with any of the plugins, just some slight gain and then volume goes down.

Re: No Distortion/Drive in Rackarac/Ardour

None of the distortion plugins are creating distortion for me either in Rackarrack or Ardour. There has to be something more OS or kernel related here. I am not the best Linux troubleshooter. Whatever files make the distortion effects work with the applications seems like that is the problem. Can an...

Re: No Distortion/Drive in Rackarac/Ardour

Okay I will try and real back my version later tonight when I'm home. Unfortunately that won't solve the problem with Ardour as well. Nobody I guess really knew how the Rackarrack issue was fixed for Anthony in those posts....but there has to be something he did. hmmm..... I read that Rackarrack use...

No Distortion/Drive in Rackarac/Ardour

All the presets are there but they don't really change the sound . They actually cut it down into harmonics when i turn them up. All the other effects seem to work whenever I tool with them or select a preset. This is the same in Ardour with any distortion/overdrive/saturation effects. I just instal...

Re: Jack problems

Got it. It actually magically just started working but I do understand now the route. My ardour issues also resolved except a new one I discovered........which is not being able to play any distortion plugins, either in Ardour or in Rackarrack. It will play all other effects. Just no overdrive, satu...

Re: Jack problems

Just wondering if their is a way to use my onboard soundcard for playing regular multimedia stuff and then use Jack for the Scarlett. I guess the ability to use both in tandem? The USB Scarlett 2i2 seems to blow out the regular onboard card, I can't adjust the sound in any non-jack related applicati...

Re: Jack problems

Thanks. I will work on tuning Jack very soon. Right now I notice that the volume doesn't turn up or down within the OS. I can click on the sound thing in Tango's desktop or any within any program and its unadjustable. Is that normal? In addition just tried starting Qjactl after a reboot and not able...

Re: Jack problems

I figured that Ardour issue is because of the plugins tied to the sessions I did on Tango Linux 1 which had an earlier version of Ardour 2.6. The new Tango Linux distro comes with 2.8. Now I have to figure out which ones they were and try and grab'em. Another issue I will be working on is the other ...
