Welcome Steven! Florida is probably one of my favourite places on earth. What kind of music do you want to make?

Welcome Steven.

Did you know that you can make jackd your always running master sound system even when playing Youtube-videos, games and with virtual machines?

- The standard install of pulseaudio redicrects ALSA-clients to pulseaudio
- You can redirect pulseaudio to jackd with module-jack-sink

Then you can record anything that makes sound in perfect quality, e.g. with audacity

Thanks guys!

I've got module-jack-sink installed, but haven't used it yet other than a quick test to see if it worked here. Thanks for the encouragement, will set it all up soon! Really like Jack. I was thinking about creating an ALSA plug that just redirects to Jack instead of Pulseaudio, still considering that as well, what do you think?

Florida is probably one of my favourite places on earth.


Nice! What do you like about FL? I love the biodiversity, climate, and beaches :)

What kind of music do you want to make?


Well, I'm not sure to be perfectly honest. I really enjoy good music, especially live recordings (or being there live, like orchestral, jazz, etc). I am a big fan of independent artists, especially those on the horizon, there's some real creativity there in my opinion. Joined this forum to glean wisdom from the pro's and read how you guys do things.

Thanks,
Steven

The piano roll...oh wait, you aren't talking about FL Studio :lol: You pretty much nailed it. I also like the metal bands from there!

Right on man! :D

I'm going to peruse these fine forums for the "best" Linux audiophile distro. I'm using my workstation right now as a source unit and I think there's just too much contention, getting pops whenever I multi-task while playing music (even with Jack running in realtime with extra buffering). Workstation is openSuSE, not known for it's audio-friendliness from what I've read. See ya round guys! Thanks for being so friendly and welcoming!
