This is Steinway_IMIS soundfont, version 2.2.
This version fixes the issue with loops. I hope this is the good one
and there are no more remaining major bugs.
Marcos is a little busy right now, so he asked me to make this fix. He
is thinking to make other improvements, so expect more updates soon.
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!
Hi guys (and gals),
a good friend of mine is in the market for a mixer that is at least
capable of recording a whole band simultaneously.
He thinks that 16 channels might be a minimum for that, but he isn't
exactly experienced, and me neither.
It would be nice if it would work as firewire audio interface as well,
like the mackie onyx mixers, mainly because it might mean less trouble
Those onyx mixers look nice, and are supported by ffado, but we'd
like to have some more options.
Linux support isn't a strict requirement but it would be really nice to
have as option. So far it didn't work for him, but when the hardware
works with linux I can show him what's there and what's new from time
In this case he has a budget of up to 3000 Euros or possibly more, but
the stuff really needs to work for a studio.
Thanks in advance for any advice,

I have some limited experience playing other keyboards/E-Pianos than my own old
Roland JX-305, which is a 61-semi weighted keys synth which specialised in
'Dance, R&B, Techno' etc kind of sounds. It was the keyboard version of the
MC-505 Groovebox in fact. Initially, I started off as a guitarist and just
wanted to have a keyboard/synth to play some accompaniments to my guitar
noodling. Today I play more keyboard then guitar, also for other reasons.
I have tried/played some diff. keyboards/controllers, like i.e. the M-Audio
Keystation Pro 88 (favoring a controller/softsynth approach), some of the better
Roland/Yamaha Stagepianos, the Yamaha CP-series and then some...
I personally most often preferred the Roland keys in the lower pricerange, the
Yamaha keys win in the upper pricerange IMHO. The CP series i.e. are all high
quality, keys and soundwise. But then these are all outta your pricerange I
guess, unless you'll find some 2nd hand top offer.

Polyphony is the max playable number of notes that can be played at any one
time. So, if you're playing a simple C chord, you'll use up 3 voices of
polyphony (C - E - G). But if now you keep them ringing with the sustain pedal
to play some single notes over your chord, you stack up the voices.
Since Piano/E-Piano playing very much involves your sustain pedal, it quickly
builds up to way more then 32 voices.

Good luck in your search. It may be worth checking local garage sales, flea
markets and the 'for sale' columns of your local newspaper/hebdomadal magazines.

following a basic rule for open source project "publish early and often" I
release the very first (but quite feature-rich) version of TapStart to the
TapStart is a basic tempo-measurement where you tap some beats and get the
(averaged) tempo displayed. But there is more to it:
- TapStart also updates the jack-tempo (if a running jack was found during
startup) and can even start the jack transport after a defined number of
taps. This is implemented for using this thing in jam-sessions to get a
click/drum-computer to play in a tempo not known before.
- TapStart can also send OSC-messages with the tempo/delay-value as argument
to any gives host and path.

and has to be installed beforehand.

As recent PCs have no joystick port, my DA-15 adapters are not
much good any more. Guess it's purchase time again. While I'm at
it, I'd like more ports.
I gather that these days, instead of standalone MIDI matrixes, you
have multi-port boxes that have built-in MIDI matrix functionality
and a USB port so they can double as a MIDI interface for a PC. Is
that right ?
The Edirol UM-880 looked good and was supported by ALSA, but it's
not made any more and used ones don't seem to be so common. What's
still in the stores is :
- MOTU MIDI Timepiece (around 600 EUR)
- MOTU Express XT (around 400 EUR)
- MOTU MIDI Express 128 (around 200 EUR)
For the price, I'm guessing the Express 128 does just I/O, not
matrix functions. What else is there to know ?
I've heard complaints about the latency of the MOTU interfaces.
How is it under Linux ?
Is the MIDI Timepiece worth the extra money over the Express XT if
all you're doing is talking to synths and maybe a Syncman
Are there any other 8-I/O port interfaces still being made ? Or
good ones that are out of production but available on the used

Here's a report from the first ever fight Pd vs. Max/MSP from one of
I knew, David and Dafydd would do it!

Subject: Re: [PD] Pd/MAX grudge match in Toronto next Thursday
So the event was a success - lots of fun, good-natured competition,
beer and general nonsense.
Pd won 9-6, but several people pointed out that since there was only
one person on the MAX team and two on Pd, maybe the score should have
been 6-4.5 in MAX's favour. Before the final Pong match the score was
4-2 for Pd. We then won Pong 5-4 and added the scores together.
Pd crashed once during the final challenge (building Pong, which
neither team actually ended up doing - we both used the versions we'd
built previously as we were running out of time). David composed a
scathing error report to Apple. MAX forfeited on one challenge (make
Nohands dance), also for time reasons.
One really interesting thing is that both our host, Misha Glouberman
and one blogger, Jordan, neither of whom had had any experience with
patching, seemed to come away with the impression that Pd is much
easier and more efficient to use than MAX.
A great blog post, pictures and video here:
We're already thinking of ways we could do it better next time and of
variations on the theme.

I've found a bunch of how-tos on using a Wiimote as a mouse, but can't find
anything Linux specific on turning all of those movements into MIDI notes -
Any experience with this or any other Wiimote > Music applications out
I'm using my bassguitar without an amp. I use a dmp 3 preamp and my
maudio audiophile 24/96. How can I make my bassguitar sounds good this
way? Is there software which can make the sound better and how?
Thanks in advance,
