Re: Automated Arch/pacman binary packages of AUR entries

Also, the build has failed three times with three of the -git vcv modules, a nanovg path issue in the PKGBUILD I think. Thanks for trying. The one that is essential is 'Fundamental'. Even if that worked I'm not sure that vcvrack-git would work because the 'External' modules are missing -- the modul...

Re: Automated Arch/pacman binary packages of AUR entries

VCV Rack + Arch seems to be a bit messed up. I remember now why I was using vcvrack-bin -- it's the plugins. vcvrack-git doesn't come with plugins, or it can't find them or ... And when I tried the plugins from the AUR they wouldn't build. I could look into this when I have more time. For the moment...

Re: Automated Arch/pacman binary packages of AUR entries

Great. Thanks!

It's a bit weird because the git version according to the AUR search is 1.1.0.r10.g266b63d-1.

I can see the version in aur-av-bin is 1.1.6 so that's good however it worked. :)

Re: Automated Arch/pacman binary packages of AUR entries

I've started using VCV Rack and the only package that works is

vcvrack-bin

There's some controversy around this, with the developer not making packaging easy. If you think it would be a good addition you can add it. If not, no problem.

Re: Roland UA-4FX2

What audio interfaces compatiable with linux can you recommend? To be able to provide a sensible answer the question has to be narrowed down. What USB interfaces around £100? My own feeling is that the effects on the UA-4FX2 are a bit of a gimmick. You could do all that in software after you record...

Re: Roland UA-4FX2

This isn't looking so good. It's unlikely you'll get full functionality with Linux -- that would require a proprietary driver. I have a Roland GR-55 guitar synth and Roland are not at all Linux friendly.

If you want to use Linux a different interface would be better.

Re: 2 interfaces, 2 jackd, couple them

First of all I should probably say that audioadapter does not turn two Scarlett Solos into a 2i2 :D If you want four inputs a four input soundcard is the best solution. If you already have two soundcards and want to use them together audioadapter lets you do that. I use audioadapter to allow me to r...

Re: Roland UA-4FX2

If you see it in sound settings -- it's working with Linux. I imagine the sound settings you're referring to is in PulseAudio.

Have you installed Audacity?

Re: Ubuntu Studio 19.10 review

An interesting article, thanks.

This is more evidence that music production on Linux is getting more interest. It seems to be slow but steady progress.

Re: Why does jackdbus priority remain unchanged in realtime mode?

jackdbus can be running when JACK (the JACK server) is stopped. The command that's running is : jackdbus auto jackdbus listens for D-Bus messages then starts the JACK server when it receives the message. The original jackdbus is still running with normal priority but now there is another thread wit...

Re: 2 interfaces, 2 jackd, couple them

The different audio/MIDI interfaces must be synchronized with each other. Not many soundcards have that option, especially not budget USB cards. alsa_in, zita-a2j and audioadapter are ways of using multiple soundcards that don't have word clock or S/PDIF sync. I have found that alsa_in is quite rub...

Re: 2 interfaces, 2 jackd, couple them

Audioadapter increased its buffer without reason, I see. Is that while it was playing back? Or do you mean one day the latency was OK, then the next day the latency was bad? I've used audioadapter and it seems pretty good. I haven't done involved testing. I use it with jackdbus so I use jack_contro...
