Re: A video promoting the use of open-source software for music production

Thanks fro the criticism, jonetsu! I hear you, it's a sure thing that the open-source toolset is not identical in functionality to the proprietary one - as you said, peoele are usually not making a living by doing that (with a few exceptions like Ardour). As for the sound design possibilities - I th...

A video promoting the use of open-source software for music production

I've been working on this one for three weeks. I hope it can really help spreading the word about FLOSS for music production: 02.jpg (click the thumbnail to go to YouTube) EDIT: now you can also watch on PeerTube instead: https://pe.ertu.be/videos/watch/b4d3a3dc-ccc0-44da-a50e-da8a273ed5d8 I hope it...

Re: Elliptic filters?

Whoa! Maybe I can start coding my own plugins with Faust?

I was curious what an elliptic filter would sound like for sound synthesis.

Thank you CrocoDuck for the information!

Elliptic filters?

I've stumbled upon these while trying to understand how Optimod works. The seem to have the steepest possible transition from the pass and to the stopband. Could sound pretty cutting edge I guess ;) Do we have any implentations of these on the Linux audio world? I'm pretty sure SoX has something, bu...

Image-based sound synthesizer?

I have an idea for an LV2 plugin, that'll synthesize sounds based on input images, treating them as spectrograms. Basically, the reverse of generating a spectrogram, in a DAW-friendly way, that'd also allow the users to play musical notes (pitching the synthesized result according to MIDI input). Th...

jack_capture not working in a bash script but working outside of it

Hey! I'm working on a way to capture multichannel audio with OBS video capture, working around some inherent problems (I need PCM 32-bit float, not AAC audio). I've created a nice bash script that monitors changes in a directory and starts recording when a new file is created there. Then monitors th...

A tool to help overcoming producer's block

Sometimes when I work on my music I forget about cool techniques and ideas that used before that could spice up my work and push me further when I feel uninspired. I wished someone would come up and say stuff like: Try badly distorting that bass. Maybe some sidechain compression? Try muting the lead...

Wavetable Convolution?

Are you looking for an idea to code a cool LV2 plugin? I guess we are all familiar with wavetable synthesis - a concept where an oscillator has a list (or a table) of looping waveforms and allows the user to alter the sound by picking different table indexes at any given moment. Mainstream exampls a...
