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

I wonder if it is some sync issue. But can't find many things online... only that it should work. How can I do this trobleshooting? I would recommend you open a new thread here: https://linuxmusicians.com/viewforum.php?f=6, and describe in a detailed way what do you do when you observe the problem,...

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...

And if I do notice a difference then I will be able to go along with the text and call myself a discriminating user. Jumping in for a brief pro-tip.

Re: Are there any big artists that use FOSS software?

It depends on what kind of music you are making, if you are recording instruments or playing in a band then I would agree that performance is the key aspect, and generally you can do everything very well in linux with FOSS tools for that. But if you are Doing electronic music with lots of layering ...

Re: SOUL: The First Universal Sound Language

So... Faust is cool I guess. I prefer to think of these things as 'Rapid Application Development' tools, and by that I mean prototyping tools - something you can use to test an idea, before you commit time to coding it up and optimizing it in a real language like C / C++, (as God and nature intende...

Re: Are there any big artists that use FOSS software?

It does not mean FOSS. FOSS cannot compete on the ground of quality and features with dedicated 40hrs/week teams of developers earning their living with innovation, optimized algorithms, user interfaces, IMHO. Whilst this is probably true for music software, I think it is best to clarify it is not ...

But what i mean is, try to do some serious deep going administration on Linux. This I never tried (luckily, it does not like the kind of stuff I would enjoy), but I believe you :wink: By the way, if anybody is interested in knowing in which industries Linux and Open Source are a driving force, ther...

Re: Are there any big artists that use FOSS software?

I apologize for sounding negative, but using hardware that runs Linux counts as much as using an Android smartphone :? How does that affect musicians positively? I think that in practice, it makes little difference if a Korg synth runs the Linux kernel or its own, as long as it's compatible with st...
