Just a quick to anyone using slackware.
I've been converting all of my software into
easily maintained SLackBuilds.
(Its a slackware thing.)
Anyways I have the audio basics up and running.
If anybody is interested:
I do this for myself, but it greatly simplifies/automates
the transition from a default install to a low-lat
I'm still adding packages (I think I'm gonna work
thru someone here's Vocoder Blog Howto thingy next.)
I'd be happy to explain or add new packages.
I tried using a metronome the other day that complained that
there was no /dev/sequencer (The device file is there).
I have Alsa statically compiled in the kernel with oss support.
What do I need to do to get the device working?
I am installing Gentoo on my dell Inspiron 9300. I am slightly confused as
to how Alsa should be set up. When I try to run alsamixer I get the message:
no mixer elms found.
In the Kernel config I have set sound card support to "yes" and left all the
Alsa options blank. I have emerged the alsa-driver and alsa-utils packages.
The Internal soundcard is an Intel AC97 controller or module Intel8x0. I
have added alsa to load on boot and added the alsa and Intel8x0 modules to
load on boot. And the SAVE_ON_STOP variable is set to "yes". Eventually I
would like to add my Mackie Onyx 1640 using freebob (but after I solve the
alsa issue first ^_^ ).
I'm looking to do some high sample rate stuff - 500kHz or more - for
modulated ultrasonics experiments. Anyone know of a card that will do this ?
All I've seen is data aquisition cards that cost silly money, and the sound
cards I've found seem to top out at 192kHz. Any pointers appreciated.
Cross posted as this is a request for advice rather than a bug/issue report.
When playing media using mplayer or xine, and outputting using
ac3/dts passthru spdif, if I pause and resume playback, or seek, there
are brief, horrible clicking noises when playback resumes, I assume
this is because the stream is interrupted and resumes wherever it left
off, so it outputs some garbage data that causes the noises.
Is there any way to prevent this? Perhaps it is possible to make alsa
dump the first 1/2 or even 1/4 second of audio that is played? That
would avoid the noises and I could live with a slight delay when
hi All ...
i had recorded a classical guitar concert using a DAT player and a couple
of Dynamic mics (Shure 606). To get stereo recording... now the concert
hall where i did this recording was an old one with very noisy/creeky
chairs. I really wanted to remove all this from the recording along with
all the coughs and the faint A/c hum. Can anyone please recommend a
procedure i can use to remove these unwanted noise without damaging the
recording.. and what is the right procedure to record classical or Acoustic
recitals ie what mics should one use with that and at what settings etc
Could someone help me understand how MIDI connections work in MusE (the
documentation on the MusE wiki is not complete . . .)? I am basically
trying to connect different tracks to different synthesizers running under
- I can successfully start qjackctl, one fst, MusE, add a MIDI track, and
connect the track it to the synthesizer by routing the track through the
MIDI "through port 0" from within MusE and routing the "MIDI through port 0"
to the software synthesizer from within qjackctl's MIDI connections (I find
the "through port 0" in MusE's MIDI setup)
- However, even when I start more than one syntheisizer (e.g. multiple
instances of fst), I am still left with only the 1 MIDI port (the "through
port 0") in MusE's MIDI connections. So no matter how many tracks I add,
they each must use the same "through port 0", and I can't find a way to
distinguish between them in qjackctl and route each track to a different
Any help would be appreciated to correct my error . . .

Greetings, list. So far while playing with Hydrogen I've found out that:
1) I can set JACK transport off and program Hydrogen from a sequencer (trigger
drum hits in the piano roll), but it's unclear to me if Hydrogen is then
performing in realtime mode (from JACK's point of view) or not. Is it?
This feature is nice, but I like Hydrogen's pattern editor much more than any
sequencer's piano/drum roll.
2) I can leave JACK transport on, in which case Hydrogen will play its song
score completely synced with the sequencer score. (If I start the sequencer
from 1:01, Hydrogen will start from 1:01, and so on.)
This is cool, but I don't want to compose two different scores to create one
My question is: Can I simply create patterns in Hydrogen and map those to keys,
so that I could trigger patterns in the sequencer's piano roll? I'd love the
ability to start and stop any pattern at any point just by pressing and
releasing a key, and having it all in perfect JACK sync of course.
Please tell me this is possible! And if it's not, well, I guess the developers
can take this as a hint... :)

I'm wondering if anyone has experience with the Terratec SixPack 5.1 card
under linux. I'm in the process of assessing an organisation shift to linux,
and one of the few concerns is the audio production suite. Does this card
work well under linux?
I've found conflicting reports online, as some users claim the record funtion
doesn't work. Obviously this is a critical feature. I'll be doing a test
using Agnula sometime next week, but a heads up on any experiences / issues
would be appreciated.
