Re: hints for stable setup for jack + linuxsampler + pd HELP

so i switched to jack1 and it does indeed seem more stable! at one point i was getting the "broken cd player" audio buffer repeat for about a minute but then it miracuously recovered and didnt crash ... very good! i couldnt figure out how to do this with cadence so i did it with qjackctl ... is ther...

Re: Loading Windows VSTs within Carla

just saw this brilliant indeed! you might want to include plugins by variety of sound. those are high end and free, tape delay, compressor and eq are especially nice.

Re: hints for stable setup for jack + linuxsampler + pd HELP

thats very possible ... i need fireface 800 and not so many laptops have this built in and compatible. that why i think a macbook pro would be a good idea. do those work for fireface/linux? anybody using a macbook here?

Re: hints for stable setup for jack + linuxsampler + pd HELP

The number one priority is to try and choose and use FireWire audio devices that are FULLY supported by FFADO, the fireface 800 is fully supported by ffado as far as i can tell. its really an amazing interface, the best part is that the new ffado mixer supports saving the mixer state to its flash m...

Re: hints for stable setup for jack + linuxsampler + pd HELP

so the main question that remains to be answered is: what is a stable firewire/ffado setup? i cant believe ffado is not working reliable or firewire itself is unstable. it must be the hardware. is somebody running something like this: - laptop, maybe macintosh - built in firewire 800 - ffado based m...

Re: hints for stable setup for jack + linuxsampler + pd HELP

you are probably right unfortunately! im really big on high end sound and the rme fireface 800 is about the best deal in professional multi channel setup. i even sold my fireface 400 uc which was usb when i switched to linux! there is no rme usb interface supported the moment i think or has that cha...

Re: hints for stable setup for jack + linuxsampler + pd HELP

i think i have two man problem areas: - one i think is the alsa-jack bridge in connection with firefox. im trying to eliminate that by using the built in soundcard for everything alsa and firewire for the studio but then i get no sound in firefox. it seems to be set for the bridge thing. - second is...
