Re: I messed up my WINE

I've seen extremely strange behaviors by win audio apps in their native haunts lately, and I think some Visual C++ Redistributable packages have hit the future's fan, and were brown inside, instead of golden. Companies that rely on them are dancing with a sticky and smelly partner, and the heat of c...

Re: dll titles too long to enter in winecfg over-ride text area

The solution above worked in Mint 18, but not in Arch Manjaro,
both with a wine-staging 4.11

Vintage diffs :wink:

dll titles too long to enter in winecfg over-ride text area

The winecfg panel doesn't seem to be sizeable, is the size configurable in a text somewhere? When I reach the last available character when typing in a long .dll title, winecfg just crashes. EDIT: found a solution: in the graphics tab, I boosted the dpi slider to 144, and that allowed for enough tex...

Re: Has anyone tried the hardware iLok USB device with linux?

I haven't. Never owned an iLok. But the reason I'm replying is to say that you don't need one for iZotope plugins. I have a bunch of them and I activate them without an iLok. However, I can't get mine activated on Linux via Wine. I sent some debug info to iZotope and am hoping they figure out how t...

Re: Has anyone tried the hardware iLok USB device with linux?

I have the iLok license manager running and working on Manjaro with a few different plugins. I don't have an iLok device yet, but am considering getting one, since iZotope plugins require it to authenticate. Has anyone tried this? I've never used an iLok dongle on any platform, so I'm not sure how ...

Re: DiscoDSP's cloud

This is probably just financial fallout settling after George's medical issues. Which may have led to employees/contractors moving on. And then a drop-off in product updates and new products. He doesn't sell massive sample libraries requiring lots of bandwidth and drive space, so the cloud subscript...

Re: Jack and Carla?

Maybe there are system lib/app mis-matches, as mint 17 is good, but old.
If you have an external drive for test setups, installing a current release of Mint
could be a more stable use of the Kx repos.
I have a Mint 18 that is very stable, although aging fast :( :wink:

Re: Dragonfly Room Reverb - Testers needed

For a torture test, I opened linux reaper, and chained your linux vsts on an audio track with a UNO synth playing, then opened both standalones routed to the same synth, then started the windows reaper in wine, loaded a plugin synth (Maxsynths Crisalys) and chained both windows version reverbs to th...

Re: Problem when I load plugins NadIr and Emissary with linvst

Emissary is split, having Clean and Lead channels, turn all knobs, and the Channel switch, to the left. Bring the Clean Master knob up to 75% then, in this order, bring up the gain, mids, treble, and bass to 60%, and adjust to taste Now turn all those knobs down, flip the Channel switch to Lead, bri...

Re: Audio engineering on Linux

I of course will disagree completely with that, based on experience. Fair enough, and you certainly make it work (very) well. Would you really recommend that to a new Linux user though?
