as every year the famous german LinuxTag is taking place. This year in
Wiesbaden from 3. to 6. May. Yes, this is just one week after LAC2006,
which has several advantages and disadvantages:
+ It is a good chance to come to Germany for LAC, have one or two
days of holiday and then join the LA-Group at LinuxTag!
+ Maybe even repeat your LAC-Talk at LinuxTag? (see www.linuxtag.org
for details on the Call-for-Papers but be aware that it ends January
+ Wiesbaden is more in the center of germany so perhaps some LA-folks
from the north of germany can join us?
- The new place for LinuxTag together with LAC being a week before
enforce two of the main-booth-members of the last years (Christoph
Eckert and Frank Neumann) to be only a visitor at LinuxTag or even
less... That leaves a hole in the organisational part. :-(
So here is my call:
I am willing to do some work organizing a booth and a group of staff
but I need YOUR help! If you are a german LA[DU]-member and have some
spare time, join in!
A booth at LinuxTag is a good opportunity to present Linux Audio to
the people, not only to developers but more to users. The crowd is
mostly industry (producers, technicians, musicians) at the weekdays
and home-recording-users at the weekend. Don't be afraid, there won't
be much questions about setting up drivers for consumer-cards (and If
there are, we usually send them to their distributions booth :-) ).
But there will be a lot people thinking about using your app in
studio! So you definitly don't want to miss this chance!
If I get positive answers from at least two other people by weekend, I
will apply for a booth and things start rolling, so don't hesitate,
check your calendar, plan for another week of holiday and join me
So long and thanks for all the fish,

I have an onboard sound card with a game port. JACK identifies the card as a "C-Media PCI" card. I want to use the game port for my MIDI keyboard, but I'm not sure if JACK is seeing it. I have 2 Delta 1010 cards installed, and JACK shows their MIDI ports, but the only other MIDI port that shows in JACK is called "Midi Through", which doesn't appear to be from the onboard C-Media card, and I get no MIDI signal in Qsynth when I connect it. The card is enabled in the BIOS. Does anyone know how do I get this working?
i'm think to switch from mandriva to a more specific distribution for
audio with linux. so i would like to try demudi.
does demudi need any kind of configuration after his installation
process (like kernel patch, etc. etc.) or it is yet well configured by
and what about planetCCRMA?
what is for you the best between demudi and planetCCRMA?
Ladies and Gents,
I can hack specimen while working full time. And, I can hack specimen
while studying full time. But, and this is empirically verifiable, I
can't hack specimen while both working and studying full time. And my
situation is not likely to change for another year or so.
What this means is that I'm just not cut out to run a project right now,
unless I want to put it into maintenance mode. Really, that's where
specimen has been for the past six months anyway, and I've been doing a
rather piss poor job at that modest role! My efforts are better applied
to tasks where smaller chunks of time can go a greater distance.
I don't have any regrets --- this was my first real programming project,
and I learned a lot. But the truth is that LMMS is more specimen than
specimen right now, and it has an active development and user community
surrounding it. Plus, I've always been a musician and an artist first,
and a programmer second.
All told, it's time to throw in the towel on this one. In a way, this
is a bummer --- I've put a lot of sweat and tears (literally) into this
project over the past couple of years, and it has come an incredible
distance. But I'd be a fool to think that I'm better off keeping it
afloat than making music and contributing to other projects.
And truthfully, it's a huge relief to get this announcement out. A
sense of obligation is what kept me from making it sooner, but in
retrospect, that's pretty ridiculous. Considering that I'm an "open
source, just for fun" guy, and not a "free software, as in freedom"
type, it doesn't make a lot of sense to keep going when pain exceeds
This isn't the end of my open source music development, however. I hope
to help take LMMS to the next level, and contribute to other projects
that will help make Linux a competitor in the music industry. Things
like ardour2, lash, jack-midi, vst, dssi, ladspa et al are the keys to
our future in this regard. And I look forward to getting back to
hardcore hacking in a few years, when I've got my life settled down and
I'm not putting in 80 hours of work and school a week.
Take care everybody, and may the funk be with you.
"So this baby seal walks into a club."
I have been playing with DRC and Brutefir for room correction and
digital crossover capabilities. The results have been positive and now
would like to quiet down one of my PC's in order to keep it in my stereo
system. I am looking for a particularly quiet case, CPU fan (for Athlon
64), and a video card that does not need a fan (hopefully NVidia based
or something that is easy to configure in Linux). I can't afford the
expensive fanless PC cases (heat pipe style).
For those who have tried to silence their PC, any information on the
component brands and model numbers that you have had success with would
be much appreciated.
I use 1GB (2x512) Ram. :)

I see there are a few people here who have a Griffin iMic, and are
using it successfully. I bought one a few months ago, and have tried
several distros & kernel versions, but have never been able to get it
Current machine is running latest Ubuntu, with kernel 2.6.12-10-386,
alsa-utils version 1.0.9a-4ubuntu5. uhci_hcd recognizes the card &
snd_usb_audio is automatically loaded.
If I open the Gnome Sound Recorder, I can select the device "iMic USB
Audio System (Alsa Mixer)" under Run Mixer->File->Change Device, turn
up the volume, and hit "Record", but the resulting file is silent
I've also tried "arecord -Dplughw:0,1 -f cd -t wav test.wav" &
audacity using /dev/dsp1 as the recording device, again, the files are
I have verified that there is sound going into the iMic, & just to be
sure, tried both jacks/switch positions on the iMic itself. I'm
beginning to think the thing is a dud, but am hoping someone can point
out something I am doing wrong
Oh, I have never been able to get sound from the builtin mic jack
either.. the audio controller is Intel Corp. 82801FB/FBM/FR/FW/FRW
(ICH6 Family) AC'97 Audio Controller (rev 03)
anyone know about the unstable kernel of debian : 2.6.15-1: is it true
that this kernel is already patched for low latency (maybe *Ingo* Molnar
patch or *Con* Kolivas) and *preemptive kernel ?
next thing i need to know is why realtime-lsm is not working. it
complains about a security not set in the kernel. i really don't want to
recompile the kernel. is there a way to start jackd -R without realtime-lsm.
if not, i will use sudo qjackctl, but it doesn't save my preference???
(like system tray icon or stuff like that). you know why?

Jacklaunch it is. Will freeze up my system every time and must hit the switch
to restart. Thankful for ext3.
