Re: Hacked: Github service from Gentoo

This is nowhere near as bad as you seem to think. Quoting from the announcement: This does NOT affect any code hosted on the Gentoo infrastructure. Since the master Gentoo ebuild repository is hosted on our own infrastructure and since Github is only a mirror for it , you are fine as long as you are...

Re: Fanless video card

Look for the Zotac GeForce GT-710 2GB (ZT-71302-20L), it's available for about 40€ here in Europe and has VGA, DVI, HDMI outputs.

Re: Peertube is the new FLOSS (and decentralized) alternative to YTube

That's right, only I (and others) had maaany unsuccessful stories with it. I'm not kidding, I've been trying to setup an XMMP-based solution ever since the Jabber days ; Still, you're right, Jitsi/XMMP can do it. I guess you are talking about setting up your own server, because the Jitsi client wor...

Re: Peertube is the new FLOSS (and decentralized) alternative to YTube

Note that I did not talk about any replacement for this application (instant MSG+VOIP+rooms+screen sharing/remote desktop) because you guys are right, there are still no FLOSS federated alternative yet :( Jitsi can do all of that and has been available for many years and is FOSS. It's a XMPP client...

Re: Re-use of PCI cards with a modern laptop

AFAIK spdif is not multichannel ???? I don't need multichannel audio into the PC, I do the mixing and the insert effects (using rack FX units) on the mixer. I only record the final mix over SPDIF into the PC using audacity. But as I said there are more modern desktop mixers that have built in multi...

Re: Re-use of PCI cards with a modern laptop

I actually completely bypassed the problem by using a 20 channel desktop mixer which has a SPDIF output (Soundcraft M12), so all I need on the Linux PC is a single SPDIF input. These days there are also many desktop mixers with built in USB audio interface (some are even multichannel, not just the s...

Re: Re-use of PCI cards with a modern laptop

There's no need to open a laptop if it has an Expresscard slot (Expresscard slots are compatible with PCI-e x1), you can use an external adapter for PCI-e cards like this one: https://www.ebay.com/itm/112116083244 But why PCI-e (rather than plain PCI), I thought there aren't any PCI-e studio soundca...

Re: Recording the SPDIF input of M-Audio Audiophile 2496 PCI card in Audacity, how?

You need to check the following setting in the Envy24 Control Utility in the hardware settings tab: Master Clock should be S/PDIF IN Showstopper, huh? That it is. It takes the jack down and no audio until reboot. I'm not sure what you mean. S/PDIF input works fine on my card when I set 'Master Cloc...

Some still do, mostly Lenovos and only the higher end ones:

Re: DAW with labeled MIDI editor

Rosegarden uses 'device definition files' (.rgd), these are mainly used to label banks, patches and CC numbers for hardware synths but they should work for software synths too. You can make your own too, or convert from Cakewalk device definition files (.ins) files: https://www.rosegardenmusic.com/r...

Yeah, I have written a few editors over the past 6 years, this is my current work in progress: http://jdxi-manager.linuxtech.net/ I use Perl as it well suited to write synth editors (it allows quite rapid development and is very suitable for manipulating sysex data) and since Perl is multi-platform ...

Re: does a tutorial exist on how to write a MIDI VST plugin?

It needs to be VST as it has to be multi-platform and work with all common DAWs.

Or does some kind of wrapper exist to use a LV2 in VST compatible DAWs?
