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!
With ongoing preparation to "Integrate End User and Developer Resources
at linuxaudio.org" (workshop @ LAC2007) we are proud to announce a first
version of Dave's linux-sound application index as public-wiki:
this is by far no cute end-user resource portal yet, but a first
step in merging data and setting up a prototype back-end!
We are looking for interested people to contribute at various levels and
suggest to use the mailing list for general discussion while keeping
dokuwiki and style related requests at
Further [major] back-end development on http://apps.linuxaudio.org/ will
probably not happen until LAC2007, but we are interested to tweak the
look and feel, fix bugs, and collect feedback.
We're also looking for qualified LAU's and LAD's to verify and maintain
the current content with editor privileges, responsibilities and deeds.
next up: docs.linuxaudio.org:
- static documentation (docbook, LateX, [x]html)
- slides and presentations (PDF, ps, png jpg,..??)
- music (collaborate with or outsource to freesound et al.)
- include (external?) video presentations, movies, etc
- source code (coding examples: wiki-page; svn-mirror/server ??)
for each hosted documentation there will be an option for user
annotation(s). eg. wiki-discussion page, blog-comments,
email-notify[-mailing-list]? - some of it will be merged with
apps.linuxaudio.org which will provide automatic indexing; details
remain to be discussed.
some of the intended supported formats imply moderation / maintained
upload or installation of static documentation. - the ring of
maintainers could evolve with key-signatures, and parts of the system
may become completely open. - suggestions:

I have no idea if anyone's ever used a tracker to create a hit song, but
it is unfortunate that trackers are usually associated with a particular
style of music. I have heard some very cool stuff in module formats,
though I'll agree that most of the music-made-with-trackers that I've
heard tends towards rather uninteresting dance beat music. I don't
believe that trackers necessarily impose any kind of style restriction,
you can bend them into doing non-beat oriented stuff. Kuno's "Substantia
Grisea" is an excellent example.
Developers are often surprised at what users wind up doing with their
Trackers seem to have come along at a time just before cheap samplers
hit the market, which might have drawn attention away from the
developing tracker communities. Nevertheless, those communities remain
strong, a lot of people like to make music with trackers, and I don't
think they're overly concerned with their lack of popular success. ;)
Hi guys. Hope you can help me figure this all out ... I've been reading
this list for awhile and, even though I figure I'm a not-so-bad musician
and fairly computer literate ... I have to admit that half the
comments/questions I read here just turn to jelly in my brain.
Anyway, what I want to do is to create some decent recordings using MMA
backing tracks and me playing sax. So, what I'm doing right now is to
play the MMA midi file though a keyboard and record that onto a little
multi-track recorder. Then, I listen to the background track and record
myself playing sax. Next, I transfer the tracks to the computer and do
some rudimentary mixing with Audacity. Honestly, it doesn't sound all
that awful (for my latest effort,
http://mellowood.ca/music/recordings/). Biggest problem I see with this
is that I can't tweak just the (for example) bass or piano in audacity
since all the background is "mixed" into a stereo track.
But, I'd like to do better :)
So, I see a need to be able to split the MMA track into several audio
tracks ... one for each MIDI track. So, question 1: what linux software
will act as a synth which will split the midi out into separate audio
tracks? I looked at timidity, and it doesn't appear to have that
feature. If I've missed something there, I still have a problem with the
quite awful default sounds it has ... so if I need to use timidity,
where would I get better sounds. Or would I be better off to play/record
the background multiple times though the hardware synth ... But I don't
see how I'd ever get that synchronized.
Question 2: Assuming that I have recorded a decent multi-track
background, can I use audacity to record my sax playing off a mixer
board? I've got a ICE1712 - M Audio Audiophile 24/96 audio card.
Question 3: what questions have I forgotten to ask?

I listened to the tracks that Leonard Ritter posted recently and then
listened to my own latest track immediately after, which made me realise
how innadequate it sounds, no matter how loud I turn it up. Does anyone
have any mastering tips? I have no idea about mastering. Leonard, how
do you get your stuff to sound so fat? Here's my track that doesn't
sound fat enough:
It's also written in a tracker.
I have a problem burning standard audio CDs. On Ubuntu (Dapper Drake),
using K3b I am able to burn all variety of disks (wavs, mp3s, etc) but
when I create a standard audio CD I get dropouts. They do not sound like
a disconnect, but rather more like a controlled fade, followed
immediately by a fade to full volume. The whole dropout usually lasts
1/4 sec or so, though occasionally a dropout is not restored for the
remainder of the track. The format of the source material is irrelevant.
(PS. The drive was taken from an XP box where it creates audio CDs
I've looked about for answers, but have never heard this symptom
Does anyone have any ideas?
I'm considering getting a dual-core desktop machine for audio work. But
I'm wondering how well the two cores would be used for audio work. For
instance can clients running on different cores connect to the same jack?
Apparently I'm pretty ignorant concerning dual-core in the first place.
Is there any online info I should/could read that would give some
insight on how an audio environment is setup and performs on dual core?
peace, love & harmony

The amiga version, that is. Not that useless windows version.
