Re: Hi all ! Old/New GNU/Linux user

Yes, the improvements to Linux in general have made it so much better than 10 years or so ago! I used to keep going back and forth between Windows & Linux but I finally stuck with Linux last year. I'll tell you one tool that really helped me to stick around - Timeshift . If you haven't got it al...

Re: FL Studio stopped working on Manjaro

Bumping again before I consider reinstalling Manjaro and starting from scratch because I just can't figure this one out..

Re: Scarlett 2i4 under Debian Buster

Does the mic only not work in certain situations (like when using your DAW), or is it always not working? Are you trying to use the mic in a native Linux DAW? I had/have this issue myself. I can't remember the exact cause but I think it appeared when I started using Cadence &/or Jack. I think it...

Re: Kontakt player decided to stop working on me...

Pacman's log is located at /var/log/pacman.log I was just looking through the log and I was thinking, you're saying the issues started around the 26th last month. The last updates I had were on the 25th. Add to that the fact that Manjaro tends to be about a week behind Arch on its updates (apparent...

Re: Kontakt player decided to stop working on me...

I only know what some of those things are. But yeh, I can see why you suspected Systemd. Where did you find those Pacman update logs? It'd be good to compare and see if anything stands out. I've spent most of my time on Debian/Ubuntu based distros so I still haven't learned the Pacman commands yet, ...

Re: Kontakt player decided to stop working on me...

Interesting to know I'm not alone in having odd issues. That got me thinking if it's not the kernel or wine version maybe it's a systemd issue? Tried a few older versions of systemd and related deps but that didn't affect it at all. Yeh I'm not sure. I've been experiencing this issue for about a fe...

Re: Kontakt player decided to stop working on me...

I'm on the Arch based Manjaro and FL Studio recently stopped working on me. As far as I know, it's not a Kernel or Wine version issue. Anyway, I read your thread as I was making my one. I think it's possible we may both be victim to the same issue. Maybe between our two threads we can figure it out....

FL Studio stopped working on Manjaro

I'm on the Arch based Manjaro and for some reason, FL Studio stopped working recently. I've tried going back to previously used Wine & Kernel versions and reinstalling PlayOnLinux + FL Studio (including a fresh FL Studio install in a new prefix), but nothing works. I think there was probably som...

Re: How do you choose your music distributor - e.g. CD Baby, DistroKid, TuneCore?

Hmm. Maybe it's just something the distributor I use for Soundcloud monetisation does then. I don't really like them TBH. If they don't actually need that level of access (which never made sense to me anyway), then I like them a lot less. I haven't heard of Tully, but if you use them, please let us ...

Re: I messed up my WINE

Not sure if this is of much use to you for future situations like this, but I've been using a program called "Timeshift" and it's been amazing for saving me a load of hassle in these situations. It's similar to system restore on Windows if you're familiar with that.

Re: Microphone recommendations for speech

Cool post, j_e_f_f_g. I enjoyed reading that. Seems that no one is afraid to recommend the SM58, budget choice or not. That's why I had to mention it. I've used one on my setup before and I felt it might've had slightly more top than my SM57. I didn't do a proper test though, just felt that way.. An...

Re: PulseAudio issues on Mint 19.1

Sorry to double post but it looks like that did the trick. Was able to plugin the 2i4 before logging in, and when I logged in, Jack had auto-started as it was supposed to and my sound worked right away with Jack sink as the audio device. I love it when a fix is that simple! Made my day :D Thanks for...

Re: PulseAudio issues on Mint 19.1

Try pulseaudio --start to start it. Do you have pulse audio volume control installed? There you can choose the audio device. Are you maybe missing pulseaudio-module-jack ? Ok. I tried starting it that way in both scenarios again and everything's the same. I just didn't get terminal error messages t...
