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!

Nice. It's probably quicker to copy the jack_ringbuffer.c file out of jack

Those friends can be really cranky sometimes though.
By using atomic operations instead, it's possible to avoid
a lot of headache by not having to synchronize at all.
Performance might be better too. Midishare has lockfree
atomic functions for lifo and fifi queues:
Le Puzzle du Batteur - The Drummer's 'G'igsaw
Polymetric editor for Drums and Percussions based on Lilypond + GUI for
randomization. (midi timing and/or volume)
You have to install:
GNU Lilypond >= 2.12.0
(compile in /usr/local/midicomp...
and move midicomp.bin in /usr/local/bin
Python 2.6.x with Tk option activated.
Already in your Linux distribution.
GNU Bash and GNU sed 4.2
by default in your Linux distribution.
As default midi config I use Timidity++ 2.13.2 with eawpatches.
Untar the archive. (tar jxvf ....)
In your terminal go to your Drummer-s-Gigsaw's repertory.
and run the bash script:
You are done.
* In this new version you no longer need to gvim.
Thus you can use your preferred text editor or even a dedicated editor
like Frescobaldi or Lilypondtool...
* Now you can write all notes values, from whole note (1) up to
* one-hundred-and-twenty-eighth note (128) and even dotted values.
* The manual is updated. (translated in my terrible English)
* Le Puzzle du Batteur/The Drummer's 'G'igsaw is under GPLv3 or +

Can't seem to start jackd in realtime as user on ubuntu studio. It
does start as root, but that's hardly a consolation (unless I run all
audio software as root, which would be kinda daft IMO)
@audio - rtprio 99
@audio - nice -10
@audio - memlock unlimited
have been added to /etc/security/limits.conf
Nevertheless, starting it as user just doesn't seem to work, and I
just can't figure out why. I've googled the issue, and everybody seems
to agree that modifying limits.conf in the above manner should solve
the problem - yet this is what I get:

I have restructured guitarix a bit and split it into a amp head and two
effect racks. It's in svn only for now.
screen-shot from the AMP is here:
I need some testers and feedback before I could make a release out of
it. So please, if you are a guitar player, checkout our Sources and
build gx_head. Let us know if you miss something or if you found a bug
or a misconfiguration.
get the source
svn co http://guitarix.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/guitarix/trunk
(like ever all FAUST.dsp Sources included)
/waf configure --prefix=/usr --includeresampler --includeconvolver
--experimental --optimization --debug --no-faust --build_head
that will build guitarix and also the new gx_head
and build and install

I've just posted a video tutorial for seq24 -- it discusses what seq24
is, and what it isn't, and then proceeds to demonstrate the basics of
building and playing patterns. If you've tried it in the past and been
confused by its somewhat unique interface, hopefully this will get you
past that initial confusion. The direct Youtube link is here:
and the post about it on my blog, which includes a downloadable copy of
the video in WebM format (playable in VLC 1.1, or Firefox 4 beta, among
other players), is here:

Any idea to deal with the problem? What to do?
1) Try to have the money back
2) Try to use a USB_2_ExpressCard converter like this one?
http://www.delock.com/produkte/gruppen/Express-Card/Delock_Express_Card_to_… -> it says linux compatible
If this works, the performance will be similar, better or worst?
Thanks in advance,
PD. I checked a lot of things and grasped a lot of information thinking in my new laptop for audio production... but I never would thought in the USB chipset.
I have uploaded a new mix I have done last night and this morning inspired
by Halloween weekend 2010 in Sydney, Australia and in particular Stacey
Pullen's excellent set. If you listen closely you may hear the influence.
It's a long player - 808 MB - 65mins - flac, 48Khz, stereo
Recorded on a quad core Intel 3Ghz, 8GB RAM, Fedora 12, using ardour3 for
multitracking, AMS for the pulsating bassline and Hydrogen for the drum
Designed to be played loud and immersively, and preferably with a large
blast of dopamines to the brain.
I think it could be enhanced with a seriously funky bassline. If anyone
wants to take a stab at it, that would be cool wid me. It's definitely in
there just about bursting to get out.
