Re: xruns(this discussion is not for smart ass remarks, it's to help each other)

The reason I'm posting this is to ask about audio loss (even though if anyone has suggestions of fixing this I'm all ears :mrgreen: ). When I would listen to that audio, I notice no loss in audio quality. I have wondered the same thing! I understand what an xrun is, but I would like to know why som...

Re: lets talk about apple mac

What @rghvdberg said. Ditto. I was an Apple fanboy in the 90s and early 00s. iPods were a dream come true for me, to be able to have so much music on the go. That was amazing. But I got so aggravated at my first iPod :x . I was forced to use it in tandem with iTunes--super frustrating! I disliked i...

That would be excellent news. I could restrain myself from getting the plate for about five minutes.

Re: Audio assault plugins @ linux

I, as a bass player, was triggered and just said in a reply I'd better buy this instead. Today, guys changed my XCTR license to Duality. Incredible. I highly recommend buying their stuff. Fellow bassist here. I agree that Duality is very good. I especially appreciate the blend in the cab IR section...

Re: Bitwig 16 Track

I've been "Wig curious" for a few years but I'm a live band guy not really a EDM/Techno guy (although I do very much enjoy the genre) so this seemed like a decent compromise to learn the ropes.. It's seductive! I had also been seriously wig-curious and tried the full version last year. It...

Re: Tracktion plugins (retromod, waverazor) crash in all my DAWs

I don't know about retromod and waverazor, but I used to love some of the Tracktion stuff (especially the DelayStudio and Master Mix). The crashes started for me a couple years ago. I tried to check out Waveform last year, but it froze my machine entirely. I got no response from the developers after...

Re: Stickers!

Today I was surprised to get an envelope in the mail shipped from "Nederland". I observed a flagrant violation of privacy: somewhere en route it had been torn open and then clumsily taped shut. Inside I found a whole pile of these stickers! Who else wants one of these? I'd def. slap one o...

Re: Distortion plugin for voice

Calf Saturator is good on anything, but it might not be as extreme as you would like.

Couture is super fun for this sort of thing. It's a bargain but not free.

Re: Can somebody demystify JACK for me?

Maybe the first thing to determine is whether you really need JACK. Paul Davis (the original developer of JACK and the primary developer of Ardour) now recommends that people use Ardour5 with ALSA instead of JACK, unless there is a specific reason to use JACK. Michael is right on with this, and it ...

Re: Best Platforms to Share Creative Commons Music?

BandCamp supports CC licensing too. They are not libre, but they give good exposure, offer ease of use, and I think they are actually doing something progressive for the recording industry (supporting alternative licenses, flexible pricing, open file formats for downloads). Only downside for me: no...

Re: 2019 Milestone recording

This is quite something. Amazing that it only took you two days, it sounds like it would have been a massive undertaking getting it all to fit together. It's definitely super-visual, I could imagine it going very well with an animated short where the scene or style changes along with the music.

Re: midi browser

With Mixbus (I assume the same with Ardour) you can audition MIDI files using the import function. It has a browser that lets you scroll through files.

You probably want something standalone, but this would work in a pinch.
