Re: What preference do you have for DAWs?

Ha! I knew I was going to forget some things. Yes, Trackion Waveform, Renoise, Muse, and even Audacity probably warrant at least a cursory investigation to see if they would work for you. I think the first thing is to identify what you want to do. Based on some of your previous posts, it seems like ...

Re: What preference do you have for DAWs?

Ok, I'm back. I guess I'll get this thing started. To briefly summarize: Use LMMS if you want to make electronica Use Qtractor if you want a good midi sequencer that also happens to support audio tracks. Use Ardour if you want good multi-track audio recording/mixing that also happens to support midi...

Re: Getting "cannot allocate memory" error, although running in real time

Did you yell "TASTE COLD STEEL!" when you crossed swords? :lol: No, too bad I didn't... To be honest it was more like Monty Python's bard, "he bravely ran away..." :) His head smashed in And his heart cut out And his liver removed ...and other stuff I won't repeat so that I don'...

Re: MIDI Channels

x42's midi plugins will help:

Try the midi filter to only allow a single channel through. Midi channel map if you want to transform it to a different channel.

That's great news. At some point you might consider getting an external sound interface, but if your onboard sound is working for you, by all means keep working with that. I'm looking forward to hearing your music!

Last month I took my daughter to an empty parking lot and let her sit in the driver seat. Accelerate, brake, accelerate, brake, just to get used to it.

Re: Tenor Madness - Jazz Improv

Thanks everybody. I'm trying to learn more about live recording. This was just a simple stereo mic setup on the side of a large storage room with no sound treatment and piles of surplus desks, file cabinets, light fixtures, and such. For not putting much effort into it, we were surprised that the re...

Re: New Goa trance track (Ardour)

This is great, you have put together some really fun sounds. I like some of the modulated effects.

Re: simple software for digital piano recording

I'm curious about what's wrong with the Audacity + line out setup? Seems like it should be ok, but it depends on what you want. Sure, you're probably not going to get a world-class recording that way, but it seems like a decent way to start out.

Rainy Day

My son will be attending a percussion class, so we bought him the required bell kit. The day after buying it, I came home to find that he and my daughter had created this duet with the piano and the bell kit. They called it Rainy Day and asked me to record it. My younger son wanted in on the action,...
