hello all - got a question - I've only recently been stopping and taking a
look at my studio computer's performance and in the almost year since I
change from Red Hat 9 to gentoo, it's been more solid on some things, but I
notice a huge latency difference - ie: I have to run Jack at -p 8192 to get
anything done in Ardour
Anybody have any tips on what to look at to tweak it? Seems like it should
do better than that... I didn't see it as a problem until in the last few
days I started playing with playing softsynths live directly into Ardour -
you've gotta be running at -p 1024 or there's a latency that screws up your
playing - at 8192 it's a downright 8th note delay...
Here's some vitals that I can think of:
OS: gentoo 2.6.6-rc1 kernel (alsa built in)
jack command line:
jackd -R -d alsa -d hw:0 -r 48000 -p 8192 <------- (or whatever)
io support: 32 bit
use dma on
chip: 2ghz amd (I THINK - not at computer now)
thanks for any ideas! :)

Please do so. Make the files available from your site or
Note: If we end up to conclusion that the samples cannot
be put freely available, then I could make the samples
privately available for the following kind of project.
Research experts should analyse the sounds and come up
with synthesis method which generates as similar sounds
as possible. I'm aware of such research teams and I could
ask them to analyse the samples.
I also have a plenty of research papers on such analysis/synthesis
methods. I could place the papers privately available for anyone
who wish to write the analysis/synthesis software.

I just got a Frontier Design Tranzport and after a little bit of work,
I finally got it working with Linux. I was wondering if anyone was
interested in knowing how it works and what not. If so, I will put
together some documentation and source code and post it somewhere.

What apps can I use to gauge (meter) audio RMS and peak levels? I need yo know
exactly the average of peak levels, and the RMS loudness of an audio file.
As instance, suppose I want to master my song at a similar RMS level as
another audio file has.
What should I use?

While recording a session with Ardour I noticed that when I use the
TAP reverb any "movement" action such as relocating the playback cursor
or moving a region results in a truly horrible noise when the action is
Is this a known problem ?
Ardour 0.99 (my my own build on Planet C RH9), JACK 0.99. Audio
interface card is a Delta 66.
I'm having trouble finding an audio utility for linux
which can rip individual files using indices on the
CD's not just tracks. I have a large library of audio
CD's I need to rip, and they all use indices as they
all have more than 99 tracks. Can anybody recommend a
tool that can handle these?
Thanks in advance,

I connected my new SB Live External USB to my GNU/Debian Sid box and
it "just worked".
The only thing that doesn't work is the mixer. In alsamixer only get I
one control (PCM). If I start alsa with the -V a option I get two
controls (PCM and PCM Capt).
So for recording I have no means of setting which source to record from.
Beofore I supply you with more detailed diagnostics I just wanted to
ask if there are any usual suspects for this problem.

Hi. Got myself a load of soundfonts from hammerfall. I'm ok for unpacking
the .zips and .rar's on my Linux box, but I've never seen .sfArk files
before. Is there a tool I can install on my Linux box to unpack these? Nigel.
I also have a Fujitsu laptop with this soundcard. It seems the problem is the
multi-function ports. The I/O on this card can be altered from input status
to output depending on what you plug into the socket but this is software
driven. I don't know if such features are upported in Linux.
I think a post to the alsa-dev list might be in order...
let's see who get's to do it first !
