Re: qjackctl with "JACK Bridges"

Pulseaudio JACK connections can launch automatically with D-Bus when JACK starts If so, Cadence option to load Pulseaudio JACK connections may not be needed, unless 2nd pair of connections is wanted If not using D-Bus, Pulseaudio connections can be created after JACK is started with commands: pactl ...

Re: Manjaro?

could easily get used to it if I didn't have a great working Debian/KXStudio machine already. Debian does make more sense for a stable DAW There are couple of good developers maintaining a many of audio packages in Manjaro community repository I think all the KX packages are there, but I only use C...

Re: qjackctl with "JACK Bridges"

Pulseaudio to JACK bridge on Cadence is redundant If Pulseaudio is correctly configured with module-jackdbus-detect, Pulseaudio JACK Sink/Source connections are automatically loaded when JACK starts I have seen a few Cadence users turn on the Pulseaudio bridge option without noticing that connection...

Re: One month and counting without RT kernel on Arch Linux

Manjaro developers pushed v4.20 kernel to all users just before Christmas can't see any difference from v4.19 yet - both are excellent Not had need to use RT kernel for about a year, removed it to reduce clutter last spring and not missed it stock kernel is well capable of managing a lot more than i...

Re: Manjaro?

Manjaro has their own package manager pamac on most desktops, not yet for KDE
and cli version intended to be similar to debian/ubuntu (eg sudo pamac-update)

pacman and many other arch package managers are available too

Re: Manjaro?

I have been using Manjaro XFCE on main machine for just over 4 years, really responsive and very reliable Stock Manjaro kernel is equal or better than lowlatency Ubuntu/Debian The extra layers of testing and unstable branches prevent or mitigate a lot of problems before stable branch package manager...

Re: Any modern browsers with built-in support for JACK2?

Not aware of any other browser having JACK playback option I do not consider recompiling Firefox worthwhile if JACK connections are still non-persistent and auto-connect to JACK system default output Found it better for my use to reconfigure Pulseaudio to only connect to JACK and never ALSA. 'Pulsea...

Mostly Firefox, but I also use Chromium

Stock Pulseaudio is not a good fit alongside JACK
but I have it re-configured to have no contact with ALSA and settings locked to same as JACK

Re: Jack setup issueswith some software

Pulse won't work w/ Jack. Because you have to choose between Jack or Pulse Just not true pulseaudio-module-jack as already mentioned will allow use of both audio servers the commands i posted before work to add Pulseaudio connections for a single JACK session For regular Pulseaudio connections to J...

Re: Jack setup issueswith some software

Killing Pulseaudio would make it impossible to listen to Audio streams in Pulseaudio To hear Pulseaudio playback whilst JACK is running use these commands: pactl load-module module-jack-sink channels=2 connect=0 pactl set-default-sink jack_out (omit 'connect = 0' from first command if you want audio...

Re: KXStudio --> to install or not to install? --> Better Options

Not all Arch distributions require building KX packages from AUR
KX packages are available from Manjaro community repository

AVLinux has KX repositories already added, probably best choice alternative to KX ISO at this time

Re: MUSIC DISTROS

Re: Why Iso and not as a Software

Do you mean why you have to install the KX repository manually instead of installing the desired packages directly from your distribution's package manager? This - just by using your package manager of your distribution - would be more convenient than adding the KX repository afterwards. Manjaro co...

Re: pulseaudio can't play sound when jack is on with jack-pulseaudio-bridge is enabled by cadence

no need to stop and start Pulseaudio to start JACK Pulseaudio module jackdbus-detect can sometimes be awkward setting up on some distributions but it will take care of automating JACK start and loading Pulseaudio Sink / Source Even without jackdbus, single command in QjackCtl "execute script on...
