Re: good notebook (and maybe soundcard) for composing and li

Hi. I'm testing my laptop as an effects station and synthetizer to use live (controlling presets and effect's parameters with the same MIDI controller I use for play synths). My laptop is a Compaq Presario CQ 61, maybe too big for you (15"), but after 3 years of linuxing it's still working very...

Re: Need Advice for a 25 or 37 keys usb midi controller

Thanks for the reply. I have a M-Audio keystation 88es, that is plug and play with ubuntu since 10.04. The keystation mini 32 is actually of the same series (so expectations are good), but is younger. Here we see the attributes for the keystation 88es: http://www.m-audio.com/products/en_us/Keystatio...

Re: Best desktop for low latency performance?

Hi, maybe DE is not so essential for audio performance, expecially if you have a brand new computer. But on my 8 years old little-tux-home-recording machine with 512 Mb of ram switching to lxde made xrun number visibly smaller, running jack, Ardour and Guitarix with 5.33 ms of latency and good stabi...

Re: linux-realtime freezes on "Loading initial ramdisk"

Thanks for reply. I'm testing both with snd_hda_intel (the soundcard of the laptop) and a Behringher UCA202 USB audio interface, that works great with an old computer I have. Currently I'm on xfce4, I also tried lxde too.

linux-realtime freezes on "Loading initial ramdisk"
