Re: Rude but Has a Point?

My experience in general is that folks who can't or won't make the effort to present their case with tact usually don't have much valuable to contribute to the discussion... I'm following a self-imposed rule: Post only positive messages or don't post at all. I say again, the kill filters here work ...

Re: E17 released

In the interest of fairness, Bodhi has just done a big update to Enlightenment & it does seem to be a big improvement. Still some issues with default icons. I may try & see how a clean install does when I next have time. EDIT: Five minutes later - already had a crash that required a wm resta...

Re: Any apps for finding Keys & Scales for a song?

There is also an app called play it slowly. Very useful for transcribing as it slows music without changing pitch. As a guitarist, I use it a lot for figuring stuff out.

Re: Muse 2.1 out today!

Muse is the app that convinced me to start making music on Linux (Being used to cubasis in those days) & I still love it. I find it productive and intuitive. The team are friendly & I have got help & bug fixes through the using mailing list. A great app.

Re: E17 released

I just found enlightenment counter intuitive. it's diferent from all the others. a new concept. It's like switching an OS, you gotta get used to it. With respect, I used it for several _months_ & I still maintain that it is counter intuitive. I regard that time as time wasted & am sure many...

Re: Distro Comparison, Benchmarking, Latency

I know this topic is veering all over the place but here is a thought. Could someone (more knowledgeable than me!) come up with a composition - not a genius piece, more a musical stress test, to put a rig through its paces so we could compare not only distro's but hardware and configuration.

Best website to explain FOSS music making

Hi

I was talking to a friend about music production & he uses a windows workflow. Does anyone know of a good web page that gives a basic explanation of how & why to make music in a FOSS environment?

Re: Dream Studio + Jack/Pulse

The Dream Studio forum is really helpful as well. The chances are Dick MacInnis (the dream studio dev) will be around & answer your post himself.
