Re: Can the Low-Latency & KX Studios various software be installed on Lubuntu?

Lubuntu is good lightweight desktop and was a good base for a DAW when i used it

Should be not much difference to Ubuntu or Mint to add KX repositories and install

i find JACK works better at 48kHz compared to 44.1kHz with most audio interfaces

Re: Peavey USB-P DAC

This appears to be a line level audio DAC device has USB connection from PC, 2*XLR outputs & a mono/stereo switch no hardware controls like some interfaces so level settings should be in alsamixer 'this unit complies with part 15 of the FCC rules' = class-compliant if it is visible in ALSA, sugg...

Re: script for quick switch between audio interfaces via commandline

I am primarily interested in switching the master instead of restarting jack completely. do not see how you can switch out system device that is part of the command to start JACK without restarting maybe if started JACK with dummy device, then alsa_in and alsa_out commands to load ALSA device would...

Re: No one should ever bother with bridging ALSA and JACK.

I spent a couple of years trying to get ALSA loopbacks and never found a solution that worked well but Pulseaudio Jack Sink/Source connections have been no problem for me since Pulseaudio v6.0 it isn't necessary for a lot of audio tasks but many users still want to hear Pulseaudio I find Pulseaudio ...

Re: Gah....

turning pulseaudio off, is virtually impossible, for anyone without any real linux know how. For Ubuntu and other distributions using systemd, to stop Pulseaudio for current session: systemctl --user stop pulseaudio.socket pulseaudio.service Replace 'stop' with 'start' to turn it back on without re...

Re: Gah....

I meant that it was not following the open source ethic to incorporate some package or other into a piece of software such that the piece of software becomes exclusive. As for name calling, all I did was point out that it is in breach of what is the accepted opensource software 'contract' to publis...

Re: EEK. Ubuntu studio using system wide instance of pulseaudio

I have always been advised to never run pulsaudio as a system wide instance, for security reasons. Pulseaudio documentation confirms it is usually not good to run Pulseaudio as system-wide daemon But Pulseaudio running under systemd is not running as system-wide daemon it still uses daemon.conf and...

Re: Installing Ubuntu Studio

I prefer to do partitioning before installing
then choose manual install option ('do something else')
because automatic installs can create a different partition layout

there is not usually much difference either way to how partitions are created

Re: Best current Ubuntu for KXStudio

This is bad news for me; I've just installed Ubuntu Studio last weekend and was about to add the KX repos (and amongst other things I wanted to use Cadence instead of Ubuntu Studio Controls). Do you remember where you read that? Do you have a link maybe? Erich Eickmeyer from Ubuntu Studio has said ...

Re: Best current Ubuntu for KXStudio

KX Studio developer is on a break until later in the year and there does not appear to have been any updates for KX released since Ubuntu 19.04 came out so for KX packages may be better sticking with 18.04 LTS Ubuntu Studio 19.04 has a new package 'Ubuntu Studio Controls' for JACK appears to be very...
