Re: simple software for digital piano recording

I dunno 'bout the difference between PCM and floating PCM. But CD quality is 16 bit 44.1 kHZ PCM audio (= large file). If you compress/convert that to an 128 kbps MP3 audio (= small file), then tests have proven that most people cannot hear the difference between a CD and said MP3 file. My experien...

It depends on the interface. Some have features controlled by software, others are controlled only by the hardware dials and switches.

I use Focusrite Scarlett 2i4, and have never used alsamixer.


Because it doesn't have a software controllable hardware mixer :)

That should be fixable. Adjust the volume with alsamixer, then run "sudo alsactl store"

Re: Connecting a synth to my laptop ?

Thanks everyone for all the info & links. I was getting disheartened & wasting a lot time getting nowhere. One brief additional Q : Could I route through an additional MIDI keyboard instead of an audio interface ? As they cost about the same I'd get extra versatility . There are some USB MI...

Re: Connecting a synth to my laptop ?

You need to exchange 2 kinds of data: 1) MIDI data for note on/off. Both from the K-Station (recording MIDI clips in Ardour) and to the K-Station (play notes, controlled by Ardour) 2) Audio data (recording audio in Ardour) The K-Station doesn't seem to have an USB connector, so you need a combined a...

Maybe MIDI Clock is missing. Did you enable MMC, SPP and MIDI Clock in View -> Options -> MIDI?

Re: Rainy Day

My son will be attending a percussion class, so we bought him the required bell kit. The day after buying it, I came home to find that he and my daughter had created this duet with the piano and the bell kit. They called it Rainy Day and asked me to record it. My younger son wanted in on the action...

Apologies for offtopic... Since so many desktop applications use Pulseaudio maybe you might rethink your "no Pulseaudio" descision, at least on the desktop PC. I've been using Linux for 13 years and never needed Pulseaudio :wink: I am using Linux for 24 years, never liked Pulseaudio, but ...

Re: Audient ID4 buggy after Firmware update? (1.03)

It looks as if the manufacturers don't test their firmware enough concerning class compliant operation.

I had to install an older firmware in my MOTU UltraLite AVB to fix class compliant operation. I recommend that you install the former firmware.
