Re: DoReMiFa Solfege

I think muscle memory is awesome to have, it's something I'm trying to work towards myself. I envy musicians who can play "by feel" as opposed to "by head". :) Are you struggling with music theory in general, or just with connecting the movements and sounds with the concepts? I ...

Re: DoReMiFa Solfege

The confusion is that there are various systems of using the St. John hymn syllables. Afaik in Spanish it's indeed just alternative names for the notes. However, there's a thing called the Kodály method, which uses movable-do, la minor solfege along with clapping rhythms and simple folk songs. (Whi...

Re: drums in syntesized midi

I use qjackctl, rosegarden and qsynth mostly with standard midi synths or the ZYNADDSUBFX dssi plugin and/or Hydrogen. I'd like to get a drum sound similar to what 's in here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fEeqramL4mQ Any suggestions? Is that a kick? I normally set my backing tracks up in rosegard...

Re: drums in syntesized midi

Thanks guys! now i have something to go on, like it is in fact a kick sound. I would never have thought of using effects on it. I can try hydrogen or midi to begin, then i'll amplify and compress, etc. The sidechaining i never heard about before but it's very interesting for other jobs as well. I lo...

Re: Rosegarden 17.12 couple of probs

Have you contacted the developers? Rosegarden is actively being worked on. Not yet, I'll put myself on the mailing list Meanwhile i seem to have got rid of another problem. Two of the tracks in one piece kept reverting to another instrument regardless of what synth was assigned (gm or zyn). I final...

Re: Rosegarden 17.12 couple of probs

I did get my tumbleweed working again by recovering a month-old earlier image and Rosegarden-19.06 bundled with it has working sliders. The channel numbers still show only before loading a file though. I also have a Debian based studio AV-Linux installation but haven't booted it in ages because one...

{SOLVED} Re: Suse TW + Pulse, Audacity: cannot record (AGAIN)

Thank you. What would disabling the sound card(s) accomplish? How can you get sound without them? My guitar is plugged into the Me-80 effectbox the 'RecOut' from which is plugged into the Line-In socket of the sound-card.
