Re: XRUNS on native linux DAWs

I found installing cpufrequtils and setting the CPU governor to performance helped. There is a test utility that you can run on your system, I do have the details on my PC when I can get to it. Perhaps in the meantime someone else can post it. I also get better results out of the Liquorix kernel tha...

Re: What tools are you missing

I second the call for a mastering suite. Is there any way JAMIN (the jack audio mastering interface) could be converted to a plugin?

Re: headphones always muted at restart

I had a similar problem and the culprit was Pulseaudio. The solution was to install Pulseaudio Volume Control and set the volume from there, then it survives boot up.

Discovering the solution was a great demonstration of the value of verbose messages at boot time!

Re: Do you have an interface that works best with 48000 instead of 44100?

I have an alesis io2. It is hard wired at 48000. If it was run at 44000 it would be constantly converting

Re: How long do you need to finish a song?

When it comes to composition, I can get stuck. I am just finally finishing a song that I began twenty years ago.

Re: Poll: What samplerate do you use with jack?

My interface is hardwired to 48k so that is what I use.

Re: Experiences with Bodhi Linux?

I tried it but in the end opted for Debian. I found it clunky compared to Debian and Xfce.

Whether you use Bodhi or Debian make sure to add the kxstudio repos to get the best most up-to-date music packages.

Re: The new Raspberry PI 3B+ audio-related review

Very interested, just a shame they have not upgraded the on board sound, even to 16 bit.

MusE 3 Debian Binary

Hi
Does anyone know where I can get a MusE binary for Debian Stable please. I have Googled to no avail; I do not currently have a computer with the toolchain for building from source and was hoping to avoid setting that up. Thanks in advance.

Re: Skip the ISO and focus on documentation?

I voted against the iso. I went from being a fan to hating KDE and prefer my distro of choice (Debian) with the repos anyway. I would prefer to see more software and updates than an iso I will never use.

The repos are awesome.

Re: Why Linux? And why Linux for pro-audio?

Late to the discussion, but I am not sure I could do what I do in another operating system so easily: 1) I control the installation to give me a lightweight environment, choosing Debian and Xfce. 2)I use a high performance custom kernel (Liquorix) 3) I use the KXStudio repositories to create an ecos...

Re: Ardour vs Other DAWs

Mixbus is the Ardour transport but with a custom mixer, built to emulate the workflow of a Harrison analog console. The eq, compression/ limiting and high pass filter are built into the mixer, as is a very nice tape saturation and a limiter on the master bus. Because it is based on Ardour, transitio...

I am wrestling with the same problem. Connecting to Ardour or Mixbus and trying to record midi fails as well.
