Re: Orchestra Template for Ardour

Any opinions about replacing the Maestro Concert Grand with the Salamander Grand Piano? I've had some people report issues with downloading the Maestro Concert Grand, and I'm a little concerned that there only seems to be one legitimate place to download it. Furthermore, the legal terms of the Salam...

Re: Orchestra Template for Ardour

Each articulation is on a separate track. I tried the keyswitch option, didn't like it, and decided that I preferred separate tracks. The default view only shows one track per section, the other articulations start out hidden, to avoid an initial overwhelming view of over 50 tracks. Go to the Mixer ...

It would have to be opt-in by the musicians, probably an agreement on some flavor of Creative Commons would be best to avoid any trouble.

Re: [SOLVED] Problems with Muse and qtractor

After having some more time to try the different options, let us know which one you settled on. I tried Rosegarden, Muse, and briefly LMMS and QTractor, and finally settled on Ardour after it got midi capabilities, but you may find that something else works better for what you want to do. Best of lu...

Re: Sharing ardour projects that have LV2 and VST plugins

Thanks rghvdberg and sadko4u. I think the next step is to have him try creating a new project with a single midi track having the LinuxSampler VST, and then check the unique-id to see if it is different than the one in my project.

Sharing ardour projects that have LV2 and VST plugins

Many here already know about my orchestra template: https://github.com/michaelwillis/virtual-playing-orchestra-ardour-template It uses LV2 plugins and one VST plugin. I had somebody on #ardour IRC report that they tried to use it, it loaded the LV2 plugins but refused to load the VST. We checked tha...

Re: Guitarix on a Raspberry Pi 2

I don't like to admit it, but I kinda need somebody to hold my hand through the process of installing this system on the Pi and making it all work, since my current knowlege is limited to simply following tutorials. :( That's fine, everybody has to start from somewhere. Hopefully you took copious n...

Re: Studio setup/software /hardware

Do you want a notation editor like Finale has, or will a piano-roll editor work for you? Many people are happy with Ardour, but it does not have a notation editor. Some other possibilities that will give you a notation editor are RoseGarden and MuseScore. What kind of virtual instruments do you want...

Re: How to use KlangFalter

Blah, Ardour refuses to load KlangFalter LV2: [WARNING]: Ignoring LV2 plugin "KlangFalter" because its buffer-size requirements cannot be satisfied. I was able to load it in Carla, and it sounds great, but as I'm trying to make an orchestral template that I can easily share with others, I'...

Re: How to use KlangFalter

Are you using the vst or lv2 version? I noticed the same thing in the vst version but haven't got around to opening a bug report.


Nice catch! I am using the VST, I'll have to try the LV2 version later today. Thanks!

How to use KlangFalter

I'm trying to use KlangFalter. I installed it succesfully from the KXStudio repos, added it as a plugin in Ardour, and opened up its GUI. When I try to load impulses (that I downloaded from http://www.samplicity.com/download/ and http://legacy.spa.aalto.fi/projects/poririrs/ ), the part of the inter...
