Does anyone know of a good plugin that will generate subharmonics?
I would like to put a little more low frequency "oomph" into my bass
track. Preferrable LADSPA, but VST would work, too.
Thanks for any help!
Where is a guide to doing this?
I tried this:
with patch-2.6.19-rc6-rt9 and linux-2.6.19-rc6.tar.gz.
Won't boot. I get various messages... I wanted to ask, is there
something I can post, and where, to show what is wrong with my
One thing I get repeatedly is "hda_codec invalid_dep_range". I get
lots of hits on google- of people asking the same question.
The only kernel I have working is not real-time, and jack can't keep
up. I see lots of references to how low-latency operation is well
understood, but it seems everything changes very quickly and none of
the references I can find are definitive.
I tried this before, and came away deciding people with deadlines
don't use Linux; a real-time kernel has proven to be a pipe dream for
me. I have two weeks until the end of the semester and lots of music
to do, but I'd still like to use Linux for it.
I'm running a laptop with a 2 Ghz AMD64. Any help is appreciated.

Any news on this one? IIRC, there was some talk that such a feature would be
sponsored by Google's summer of code, but am not sure if this was the case
or if anything ever became of it?
Okay, sorted out some file installation difficulties
and now it's up! Pretty cool. I wonder if there's a
program that can just "stick" a midi note for me
though for the carrier...

when i try to remember a poem my brain creates images and i walk trough
them, when i reproduce it. when i learn a piece of music it does other
stuff (i'm a pianist and singer) but in the end i have a very complex
thing in my mind, just think of a bach fugue. i have the fugue also in
"the fingers". different areas of the brain work together. i have the
same oppinion as you, we are very good in using a visual UI. we trained
it for a long time. but there could be other combinations that work
nearly as good as "mouse-to-eye".

i think it's all a matter of training. you do the
"display-keyboard-mouse-combination" for long years and you became
professional in speed and precision. watch a pro-gamer gaming with
mouse.. what's about data-gloves? whats with feet-controlers and other

I am looking for suitable hardware to handle digital i/o between a Linux
system and an RME ADI-2 ad/da converter that I just bought. I don't need lots
of channels, but reliability of the data transfer is important, including
jitter reduction. An RME card would be excellent but it is somewhat outside my
budget. Also, connectivity to a laptop would be desirable, suggesting either a
USB interface or waiting until http://freebob.sourceforge.net/ (the Alsa
firewire project) matures. I don't plan to run any OS besides Linux with this
hardware, so Alsa support is crucial. As this is for home/personal use I'm not
in a hurry. M-Audio hardware is high on my list of possibilities at the
Now to the software question: does there exist any sound editor with a
non-graphical interface, i.e., one that can be operated from the Linux console
for inserting, deleting, copying and otherwise editing audio? Due to a
vision-related disability I can't use a graphical display and therefore need a
text-only solution - but all the sound editors appear to require X11. Surely
it should be possible to design an audio interface to a digital sound editor.
I've discussed hardware on this list once before, and the USB options weren't
highly regarded at the time.
I just recieved the monthly magazine from my musicstore and found an
interesting microphone in sE Electronics usb2200a. It seems to be a
studio condenser mic with build-in usb 2.0 interface.
1) ...tried this with linux, and has any successes or failures to report?
2) ...has heard and can comment on the sound of the non-usb version sE2200A?
If the store actually has it in stock, I think I might bring my laptop
friday and see if I can get it working...
peace, love & harmony

as this is quite a gentoo specific post, I have marked it as off topic,
but it should be interesting for others.
So I have tried the kororaa installation. The install on itself is very
easy, it looks like a debian install and it tooks less than 1 hour to have
a fully functionnal but outdated Gentoo system.
Alsaconf is used to detect the audio hardware, so my USB cards was not
The kernel provided is quite old : 2.6.14
The install is using prebuild packages, but updating a package switch
emerge to use the compilation way.
After the installation, we have an outdated system, and here begin a
nightmare that would totally disgusting any newcommers to the Gentoo
system. The kororaa mainteners have masked or unmasked tons of packages,
so the emerge world needs a lot of masking and unmasking work to be
launched properly. In short, the upgrade process is directly broken.
So to conclude, I would advise newcommers to Gentoo to use the
traditionnal way of installing gentoo even if it takes 1 day and needs to
use the command line.
To complete my base audio setup I got a M-Audio Axiom 25 keyboard.
The small size makes it easy to fiddle (no pun) around with apps using
both the machine keyboard and this music keyboard at the same desk,
without moving the chair.
Getting it out of the box I noticed the paper about setting it up on
Windows. About 10 steps in small print. Sheesh. And then me with
Linux. Was I looking at a yet 3-day installfest ? Fortunately, not. I
plugged the USB cable of the thing, started Jack, et voilá, it simply
appeared and was ready to be connected to Zyn.
One funny thing to add on this is that the Axiom documentation
(which has nothing on Linux) troubleshooting section mentions that it
can be that the keyboard at one point eventually stops working. In that
case it is said that Windows users should re-install the driver.
Well, you know, I still have to see the day when a Linux kernel module
that is perfectly working stops to do so !
On with the question.
I'd like to use the rotary knobs for interesting things such as
changing some of the so many parameters of the Zyn synth. Is
this possible ? Is it possible with another synth ?
Anyone out there using those Axiom rotary knobs in creative ways ?
And, is it possible to use the play/stop/backward/forward buttons with
Ardour or MuSE ?
