Re: Worse performance when power supply plugged in!

Interestingly, on a musical side, I noticed that I am much more sensitive to latency when playing guitar. It seems that on piano I am used to some latency, maybe, because it always takes time for the hammer to hit the string. The mechanics of a piano are quite complex, whereas on the guitar you dir...

Re: Focusrite Scarlett 2i4 dead silent in Debian (no PA)

I thought he said that the thing still works just fine in Windows 10. But thanks for the info! :) Is it? Thank you, I agree. Well it's been done yesterday with a Win 10 system. Initially, to my delight, the interface was dead silent as well, in spite of having been selected as a main card in that W...

Re: Focusrite Scarlett 2i4 dead silent in Debian (no PA)

Hi there! I have just skimmed through the thread, and it definitely rings some bells. I had the very same issue on my old gen Scarlett 2i4. Is your device an old gen? Thanks. Yeah well, your conclusions are logical, however I can't accept it to be broken. There is something fishy about that +48V but...

Re: Moving some KXStudio packages to official Debian repos

The Debian release process is fairly arduous (for good reasons). We tried to get Dragonfly Reverb into the upcoming Debian, but we missed a deadline, so I think the next chance is in 2021. KXStudio's packages are updated so rapidly that it's probably better to keep them separate rather than try to ...

Re: Cut Through Recordings Plug-ins available in LV2 Format

Captain Pedantic reporting: Linux itself is libre Not exactly. The vanilla Linux kernel has proprietary binary blobs into it. But you can install "cleaned up" libre versions in most distributions. It is possible, and actually not hard, to make a fully libre OS, but I do not think that a li...

The easiest thing you could do is make a live medium, and try AVLinux before you install it on your hardware.

Re: Lowpass filters cutting off 20khz-48khz?

Humans can generally only hear from about 20hz-20khz (And that's in a very good scenario. Most of us can't even hear that whole range. The top end starts to disappear more and more as we leave our teenage years and onwards). I am a good example of guy deaf to anything above 16 kHz. but you really d...

Re: Use KDE for audio stuff?

Just a few comments. a) Shouldn't using the rt-kernel ensure that "normal" stuff doesn't get in the way of audio-stuff? That, even if KDE is doing something, this should be postphoned until the audio is processed? No. I am no expert, but as far as I understand a RT kernel implements a part...

Re: switching from apple to linux

Hi there! I have been using Linux exclusively for the past 10 years. I am now so used to it and comfortable with it that I cannot get productive on Windows or Mac no matter what, not only for music but also for anything else. I use a Mac everyday at work, and almost everyday I want to smash it on th...

Re: Open Source, Communities, and the Incoming New EU Copyrights Regulations

The issue for us is how small websites like this will be affected, and if the new laws affect how free software is created and distributed. As far as I understand, websites like this will be affected. If so, it would mean that every post needs to be pre-moderated to grant that there isn't any infri...

Re: Open Source, Communities, and the Incoming New EU Copyrights Regulations

From what I understood by reading a few things in the last days, the reform they are currently pushing for approval is even worse that what it originally was. Forums, like this one, are gonna be impacted. I will try to find the references I was reading and post them here. The rise of populism and th...

Re: make stereo from 2 cheap USB sound cards each with mono in

Firstly I'd like to acknowledge that noone on this forum is obliged to give me any support. 2nd I'm disappointed at the lack of support. I do not really understand what you mean by this. Anyway, I am afraid I cannot help much on .asoundrc stuff, as I am no expert on that. However, I followed your l...

Re: make stereo from 2 cheap USB sound cards each with mono in

Before I go into more detail could someone please tell me if I'm able to use 2 identical USB cards each with mono mic in to simultaneously record 2 channels in Audacity relatively simply? It is possible and people have been doing this for multiple PCI devices quite a lot in the past. Here it is how...
