Good lord does it feel good to have a linux rig be my primary production rig.

Who knew zynfusion could replace almost all of my other synths.

Im a bit late, but have a

My new EDM production setup, featuring Ardour, Sunvox, Qjackctl, and Sequencer64.

Im in love!

One of the biggest issues I've had with Linux audio production suites, and the modularity of it all is the sheer number of windows.

Today I started playing around with KDE Activities, and holy lord do I love being able to separate things out like that! So much fun!

The hold music for our company's phone system is served by an ancient ipod that's locked in an electrical closet, duck-taped to the wall. Nobody remembers the ipod's unlock code.

Anyone have a for a network audio solution that I can patch into JACK audio?

I've been working on setting up a secondary laptop to handle one of my synthesis engines, but I've hit a snag.

I have set up a stable jack midi over tcp from the main sequencing machine to the synth computer via Qmidinet. I want to be able to send the audio back over ethernet out of the synth back into jack on the main sequencer.

The internet (and primarily Unfa) have recommended zita-n2jbridge, but the sheer lack of documentation is infuriating. Too many bugs to get working it seems...

I really want to try UBPorts, but im unsure of if I have a device it will install on. Who has experience with installing onto a non-supported device?

(Wanting to try it on my LG V30)

Sometimes, when your feeling down, you need a song to get you back up and running.

Live life with great expectations, and see where it takes you!

I've been having so much fun with sunvox lately. What a wonderful project!

So far I've been using a workflow where I do most of my synth fiddling and sequencing in sunvox, then export the midi sequences once I'm ready to enter mix down.

Run seq64 into multiple instances of the sunvox project, then sunvox out to nonmixer via Jack. After all that, I've got it casting audio over my network to my tracking rig running REAPER with 1:1 tracks, constantly recording.

My ISP really needs to get its shit together.

I can't believe I'm paying $80/month for 4mips down, where I get less than 30% uptime on a crucially important deadline day.

No no no, that's actually a GOOD thing about Sourcehut, patches and mailing lists are superior to the GitHub model. Everyone has an email - not everyone has or want to have an account on your platform, especially if they just want to send a quick bug report or a simple patch. Don't lock people into your web UI. @fsf

What do people think of ? The start up times make me somewhat dislike it.

Google is given kind of a pass on this one, but I'm not convinced that's fair. Makes new offerings like the PinePhone look really tempting.

"Attention, phone-makers: Our devices aren't your billboards"

I've been growing more and more dissatisfied by my Youtube Recommended, and have been getting increasingly frustrated about it.

Today i realized its probably because of the fact that I'm watching less on the platform, and feeding google less data in general than I used too.

You know. Its real hard to do web development when your network goes down every 3 hours or so.

Come on mister local ISP, do better. Ive complained time and time again, but apparently their is nothing they can do about the dirty phone line my 5mips connection runs on.

I'm also not allowed to install my own line filter to help prevent this.

I got my partner to play their first game of Magic the Gathering today!

I'm so hype... I feel bad tho, they were a few turns away from wining, and then I green mana ramp trample'd. Woops.

The best life rule I've ever come up with is to leave my Sunday mornings FREE. No helping friends move, visiting family, doing work or taxes, or worrying about anything.

Just a lazy morning in bed, in a warm house, with coffee and possibly pancakes. ❤️

I've been trying to set up a Manjaro audio production station, and aside from some issues with network audio, it's been easy to set up.

That all came tumbling down this morning when I tried to hook up my audio interface. I'm used to a bit of a struggle with getting it to work with Linux, but no matter what I tried i couldn't get it working.

Time to see if Ubuntu studio will ease my pains at all.

I think for now I'll just have to go lower tech and route the audio out of the synth machine via the on board headphone amp. Not ideal, as it builds down to more things inside my instrument, but also not the end of the world.

I need the audio rooted back into my Audio interface to enable a better looking and sequencing workforce and mix down during love sets.

I Was really hoping to not need to utilize the headphone port at all...

I tried zita-njbridge first, but that fails to even connect to a jack server, no matter the operating system or jack configuration. There doesn't seem to be enough of a user base for there to be decent docs or set up guides.

Then I tried jack.trip, which got connected to JACK on the local machine fine. I could see it receiving a connection request from the client, but it never established a full connection. Never errors out tho, only ever simply being totally mute from both ends...
