(i just found this!) the developers of noteedit say on their site they
want to end noteedit development because nobody cares about noteedit.
this makes me angry.
on their official page, they are blaming us for this situation. (maybe
they are right, maybe they are wrong.)
NOTEEDIT (which is GPL), THE BEST USER-FRIENDLY SCORE EDITOR FOR
GNU/LINUX (cause that's what it is!), doesn't deserve to be ignored.
what is wrong with us? i wonder why most of us ignore it...
is it because noteedit is a kde app and most of us are gnome supporters?
is it because we all afford to buy finale and don't need a GPL score
i really don't understand why we keep on ignoring it. it's a... mystery
to me why almost nobody even mentions it... (maybe they didn't choose a
very memorable name? are you confusing it with an application class
name?) honestly, i would be very sad if the noteedit project was
i am not related to the noteedit project in any way, as i am a newbye to
anything gnu/linux. however, noteedit is one of the reasons for me to
feel comfortable in gnu/linux.
maybe we could do something about it? i don't know... advertizing the
project... promoting it... whatever... or just take a look at it (if
you haven't already) and think for yourself. it may not be *perfect*,
but it's THE BEST we have...

A while ago I promised to post what LADSPA FX I used to get a decent electric
guitar sound (sorry I can't find the post this should be replying to - the
joys of computer hopping).
These are all caps plug-ins by Tim Goetze. In order I use:
Tube preamp emulation + tone controls
Verstaile plate reverb
adjusting each as required, it is where jack rack is handy as you can save
patches for different guitars.
Hope this helps someone

I am going to be upgrading my studio machine from a M-Audio 2496 to a
Delta 1010, msinly becuase I need to the capability of recording drum
kits. Since these cards use the same drivers, I assume I won't need to
recompile my ALSA drivers? What are people's experience with the Delta
1010? Are there any gotchas or wierd issues with it? The 2496 has
faithfully served me for a couple of years and I hope the Delta 1010
serves me just as well.
I solved a really irritating problem yesterday, and since one of the
irritating things about it was that the top google hit for several of
the ways to google it was a question by me to this list about a
previous incarnation, I figured I'd post the solution here.
I run a Debian unstable system with alsa, and from time to time, pysol
has stopped making sounds. The error message I would get is:
pysolsoundserver.error: unable to open audio: No available audio device
I finally solved the problem for this incarnation by installing
libsdl1.2debian-all, instead of libsdl1.2debian-oss. I suspect the
underlying cause of this problem, and possibly lots of other sound
problems, is that the dependancy tree isn't sophisticated enough to
take into account what sound system is running, and the packaging of
the sound libraries isn't sophisticated enough to package everything
It's one of the few cases where being able to read code was actually
crucial to solving the problem. Not that I even thought about
changing the code, but grepping it to find where the error message was
coming from was what gave me the idea to google the message with SDL
instead of pysol, and that led me to a post on a game site that
suggested installing libsdl1.2debian-all.

I bought a wireless PCMCIA card and had the oddest things happen when
I load the module. As soon as I do that it seems like all programs
get put on hold. When I move the mouse or press a key on the keyboard
they activate. For instance, if mozilla is loading a site you have to
move the mouse all over the place or it just hangs there doing nothing
... not even an indicator. The text input cursor in applications
stays in the on/off value it was in and starts blinking again when you
move the mouse. Trying to get out of X and reboot is not possible
because the whole system hangs as soon as it stops listening to the
mouse and keyboard.
This consistently happens when that driver is loaded but I thought
maybe it could be RT related? AFAICT the threads for the IRQs the
card is on are not currently set high ... though until I let emerge
mess up my system I think it would have because I believe that is the
same IRQ for my soundcard.
Anyway, I have never seen this type of thing happen. It seems
obviously to be an interrupt based issue (like unless the mouse or
keyboard interrupts the system the kernel seems to get stuck trying to
talk with the card or something) so right now I am wondering about the
RT patch. What do you guys think?

This issue has been fixed. I closed the bug on mantis. You either have to
wait for the 0.99.1 release, 2.0 beta releases or get the current ardour1
CVS from the nightly tarball:
So far I've only played with Jamin by feeding it with Alsaplayer.
Today I tried for the first time to use it on real work.
I have 3 songs I've exported from ardour (0.99) in float 44.1kHz wav files.
These files seem to be OK - I can load them into Audacity,
play them with sox, etc. But my first thought - re-import the
mixes into a new Ardour session, put them in sequence, and hook it up to
Jack - failed with the problem I describe here:
So, I thought, I'll just play them with alsaplayer -o jack. I have
alsaplayer version 0.99.76. But when I do, alsaplayer loads the files
without complaint (well, mostly; there's some messages like "short_mask
= 0x6" on stdout...) ... the UI indicates that it's playing, and it says
"sndfile supported format" -- but the output is silent! Could it be a
problem with routing or mixer controls? Nope, I can hear any other file
I load, but not these mixes. Weird.
Hey, I know, I'll use Audacity! .... except... it doesn't support jack?
Aargh. (version 1.2.1)
Any other suggestions?
I guess i could route my session directly from ardour through
jamin but I dooubt my old P3 can handle the load, I'm kinda pushing
the CPU as it is...

Is this a 64bit system? Or is it a 32bit system with some 64bit PCI
