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

Thanks falkTX, that's a starting point for me, but if anybody knows of proper documentation or a tutorial and could post a link to it, it would be even better.

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

I have been searching everywhere but I can't find a tutorial or some documentation that explains how the VST API is used to write pure MIDI plugins (such as synth editors). All I can find is examples and tutorials on how to write sound plugins. Purely looking at source code of existing MIDI plugins ...

Re: Anyone up for a KXStudio discord server?

It also seems a very popular service these days, especially amongst Windows users, so it could mean more people with a casual interest asking questions and engaging which can only be a good thing. I have never used discord and have no idea what it is but my impression of kxstudio is that it aims to...

Re: Anyone up for a KXStudio discord server?

If I went to view everything as you say, then I'd have to stop using youtube, twitch, vimeo and other video platforms. That's a completely unfitting example. These are public web sites usable with any modern browser (including opensource browsers), therefore not proprietary at all but rather based ...

In that case a forum like this one is the better option for them. Still don't see the reason for some proprietary cloud service.

Re: Anyone up for a KXStudio discord server?

IMHO IRC is just fine. IRC chats can be archived and stored as web pages that can be indexed by search engines too (so that if any good tips or solutions to problems get posted in the chat they can be found by other people in future too), there are bots available for that. People don't even need a s...

Re: Anyone up for a KXStudio discord server?

This is true for any cloud-side platform though, that was my point before... When someone hosts a service for you, that someone else has control over your data - does not matter if the underlying code is open or not. And even in opensource platforms, they can sometimes drop legacy or random feature...

Re: Anyone up for a KXStudio discord server?

By proprietary I mean not based on open and standard protocols to which you can connect with any client that implements the open standard. IRC and XMPP are examples of open platforms, Whatsapp, Skype and Discord are examples of proprietary platforms. Any platform that requires you to use their clien...

I find a forum topic a lot more appropriate than some proprietary chat solution.

Re: ELK - The Music Operating System

So I bet that complying with the GPL won't be at the top of their todo list... Before starting to throw around random GPL violation accusations maybe you should re-read and truly understand the GPL licensing terms. The GPL only obliges them to provide the source code to whom they provide the binari...

Re: Open Source and the new Korg Prologue

That's hardly open source, it's simply a user customizable feature that they wrongly call open source to attract attention.

Besides that at €2000 with only one LFO and without even an aftertouch keyboard it's way overpriced.

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

not the linux ALSA driver as I can select and record only the two SPDIF channels arecord is doing what BackupBand does. You ask the app for 2 chans. Alsa driver says "Sorry it's 10 channels or nothing." So the app replies "THen gimme 10 chans. As the data (0 values or "digital silence") is pouring ...

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

Jeff thanks for your reply but the problem is not the linux ALSA driver as I can select and record only the two SPDIF channels just fine when using ALSA directly with 'arecord' or even with 'mhwaveedit'. The problem is in the portaudio library that Audacity unfortunately uses. I did notice other pro...

Found this thread about the same subject on the linux-audio-user mailing list: https://lists.linuxaudio.org/pipermail/linux-audio-user/2014-August/thread.html#98263 Looks like this is a problem/limitation of the portaudio library which Audacity uses. With Mhwaveedit I have no problems recording just...

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

I just noticed that if I set Audacity to record 12 tracks (instead of 'stereo') it will record the SPDIF input on tracks 9 and 10 and on tracks 11 and 12. So it seems I have to record all 12 virtual tracks of the M-Audio 2496 and then just delete all empty unwanted tracks? Is there no way with Audac...
