JackLab Audio Distribution
A remastered openSUSE for musicians, producers and media creators.
The JackLab Team is proud to present the first public alpha-release of the
JackLab Audio Distribution (JAD). The 1.2GB DVD iso can be downloaded from
ProAudio for openSUSE Linux
Time for another update on Freewheeling:
( FreeWheeling is an audio tool for live looping. It provides a highly
configurable, fluid user interface for instrumentalists to capture loops
in real-time. FreeWheeling runs under Linux (PC/Mac) and Mac OS X
Freewheeling v0.5.5 is here. What's new? A host of stuff:
- MIDI sync transmit for syncing to Ableton Live / other sequencers
- Select, trigger, and fade multiple loops all at once
- New configuration with more MIDI controls
- Continuously variable feedback for overdubs- EchoPlex style
- Browse patches, scenes, and loops via MIDI program change knobs
- Save over existing scenes
- Toggle-able sync panel for reduced screen clutter
- Better stability
And thank you to a last minute donor for his support. Much appreciated.
It seems many Aldrin users had trouble with the LLVM dependency, so I
added a second option for Lunar to use GCC for building its plugins.
This should make life a bit easier. CCM files will only carry source
We are going to find a different way of installing plugins dynamically.
You find an updated libzzub at the zzub project website.

Thanks for the heads-up. I forgot about support for the Audigy2 ZS, which I
still own! Installing 1.0.14rc1 on your distro must involve breaking a lot of
deps - is there an easier way?

Just a quick note to praise the nVidia 7600GS video card I put in the
AMD64 box yesterday. I bought a fanless model manufactured by Gigabyte,
I have a Gigabyte mobo so I figured the fit should be perfect. I had no
trouble with installing or configuring the card. Actually there was no
configuration step at all: I use nVidia's driver, which recognized the
card immediately. Btw, this card replaced an nVidia 7300GS-based card,
for which the driver was already installed.
There were some cheaper versions of the 7600GS but I decided to go for
one at about $130 (US). Since it's fanless there's absolutely no noise,
and at last I have a quiet machine.
I have a slight problem with glashctl...
If I start it with jackd *not* running, it behaves as expected: jackd (via
qjackctl) and lashd can be started and stopped at will, and stopping jackd also
stops lashd, but leaves the functioning glashctl in the system tray. But if I
start glashctl with jackd already running, and then stop jackd, glashctl dies
also (i.e. the icon disappears from system tray). I suppose this behaviour is
This happens on a Gentoo system, with glashctl-0.4.2, lash-0.5.2,
jack-audio-connection-kit-0.102.20, gcc-4.1.1 etc.

Florian Schmidt was kind enought to point out that I can increase my
system performance by increasing the priority of both the Jack daemon
and the IRQ that my trusty'ol bebob device is hitched to.
I temporarily gave up on putting the device onto another IRQ and will
leaving that up to the kernel developers to sort out; what I am
interested in right now is how to increase the priority of IRQ 10 on my
Florian suggested simply increasing the priority of the 'IRQ 10'
interrupt handling process; but on my system, there is no interrupt
handling process 'IRQ 10', or for any other IRQ, for that matter.
How can I increase the priority of 'IRQ 10' on my Debian based system?
Help much appreciated.
PS: upping JackD priority alone took care of 60% of xruns; thanks Florian!
