I'm going to buy one of these cards, and I was wondering what about the
differences from one to each other and concernig ALSA's support.
By ALSA's website seems they are completly supported, but I would like to
have some users' confimations.
On RME website I focused this words:
HDSP 9652 is the long-awaited successor of the well-known PCI card Project
Hammerfall (DIGI9652). Like the original Hammerfall, HDSP 9652 offers 3 x
ADAT optical I/O, ADAT-Sync In, SPDIF I/O and word clock I/O. On top, there
are 2 MIDI I/Os and TotalMix, a DSP-based real-time mixer/router.
apart from MIDI I/Os which I do not care about, I didn't understand what
TotalMix will do on HDSP9652 and under Linux.
Thanks in advance to anyone who will help!
I'l be kicking around in boston over a weekend a couple of weeks from now,
due to the airlines stupid bussiness flights policies, so if theres anyone
in that area I'd be more than happy to meet up to sample the local brew
I was just wondering whether anyone had an idea what could be done with the
1) I start vstserver (all is installed fine from Thac's rpms on Mdk 10.0
2) I get the usual info about trying to re-run the vstserver if it hangs for
40 secs or if it continually tries to reload the same plugin
3) The next message is something like this (sorry currently away from my
Trying to load NorthPole.dll
wine: L"E://whatever-path/NorthPole.dll" is not an executable
and keeps retrying approx. every 10 seconds.
Obviously following the initial advice I try to restart vstserver, but no
matter how many times I try it keeps failing in the same way.
Vstserver version is 0.3.1. Wine is ~April 2004 (whatever Thac has).
Jack_fst works just fine. $VST_PATH is properly set.

the conference programme of the International Linux Audio Conference 2005
(LAC2005) in Karlsruhe, Germany, on April 21st-24th, 2005, is now online
at http://lac.zkm.de. Small changes are still possible, though.
Also, registration (free) for the conference is now possible, too, at
Quote from that page:
"Admission to this year's conference requires a registration. This helps us
to estimate how many visitors we may expect, what individuals the audience
is made of, and allows to produce name tags for all attendees so that it
becomes easier to identify each other.
The registration is free - and so is the conference (except for the concerts).
The data you enter here is purely for our own informational purposes, and
will never be given away or sold to anyone. If you register, no confirmation
of any kind will be sent to you. You can even completely omit the E-Mail

human behind a registered identity or rather a robot/spambot."
So, there you have it. Go ahead, read, register and come :-)

They sound quite boring because the sounds are clustered to
one point in the stereo space. Anyone would have a solution?
Would sospubs or prorec have articles on this?

But if you want an ultimate experience in mixing and effecting,
please check out, e.g., The Eye album of Yello (www.yello.ch).
Last summer Start-AB at Germany held a remix contest with the
Yello provided loops. It was a great success: 300 remixes were
submitted. In my opinion, the downside was that nobody actually
used the provided loops to the extend that Boris Blank himself
used. The loops are at
The contest loops are in contest2004.tar.gz but there are
other, earlier loop sets provided by Boris.
Hearing the contest loops individually really shows how complex
mixes Boris does. All loops are used in his mix.

I know some word of mouth has already gone around about the new
SooperLooper, but I might as well make a public announcement
about it sometime. That time is now.
SooperLooper is a live looping sampler capable of immediate loop
recording, overdubbing, multiplying, reversing and more. It
allows for multiple simultaneous multi-channel loops limited only
by your computer's available memory. The feature-set and
operation was inspired by the impressive Gibson Echoplex Digital
Pro (EDP). When used with a low-latency audio configuration it
is capable of truly realtime live performance looping.
SooperLooper is currently supported on Linux/Unix and OS X
platforms that support JACK (http://jackit.sf.net).
The application is a standalone JACK client with an engine
controllable via OSC and MIDI. It also includes a GUI which
communicates with the engine via OSC (even over a network) for
user-friendly control on a desktop. However, this kind of live
performance looping tool is most effectively used via hardware
(midi footpedals, etc) and the engine can be run standalone on a
computer without a monitor. A few sample MIDI binding presets
are supplied, including a basic EDP Loop IV binding.
Future plans include possible DSSI, VST or AU plugin versions
for all appropriate platforms, with some reduction in flexibility
from the JACK version.
You might compare it to the recently released FreeWheeling, which
is an excellent tool when looping with lots of multiple
simultaneous loops. SooperLooper is more suited for
detailed live manipulation of a given loop, although it also
supports multiple simultaneous looping.

it, give copies to your friends, modify it, throw it away, etc.

My question appears here most likely quite often, but I think I ask
anyway since googling the Internet did not give any useful results.
I'm searching for tools for serious music compositon. I don't want to
generate some poor PC speaker noise, but something that sounds good. I
don't care much whatever the method of generating the music is. Using
a midi sequencer with soft synth or writing my compositions in a
musical language are both OK, I can even use a tracker if the sound
quality and ability to fine-tune everything are not
compromised. Productivity is also an important factor since writing
1000 lines of code to get a single note out from soundcard is not
effort. The only (and probably the one which makes all this impossible) is that
I'm blind and can only use text-based applications. So I'm interested
about all possibilities available.
Thanks a lot for all answers.
I'm not visually impaired, but I prefer text-based composition tools
myself. I'd recommend checking out (in no particular order)
compo (built on tom of cm/clm/cmn)
midge (perl module for making midi files)
haskore (if you're a programmer)
I use all these and some home-grown python code to produce and mangle
midi files into a final form I'm happy with, then I use csound or
timidity to render the midi files to audio, then ecasound to mix the
audio together. No gui required from start to end.
