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 +

I'm compiling the 2010 mix at the moment. Unfortunately I lost a few
months worth of data between Jan - May. If you released a track during
that time and you would like it to be considered for the 2010 mix please
send me a link so I can download it again.
Also if you have unreleased tracks or tracks that are not easily
downloaded then I may have missed them. So feel free to shoot me a direct
link if you want to get them into the official mix.
The past couple of years I ended up with about 40 tracks that made the
cut. It would be nice to have even more this year.
There is no discrimination on genre/content. The criteria is if it sounds
good and/or represents an original or unique idea compared to the rest of
the tracks in the final mix.
All the tracks are hosted on djcj.orghttp://djcj.org/audio/lam/
and we even have an icecast stream at linuxaudio.org which Robin Gareus
setup last year.

When I set cpu scaling with sudo cpufreq-set -g performance, I have the
best proaudio performance on my thinkpad T61. But, that will also heat
things up very quickly with as consequence more sound from the fans.
The laptop is more silent when I use, sudo cpufreq-set -g ondemand, but
I get more xruns then.
Is it possible to adjust the ondemand settings to find more balance
between performance and noise? How?
Btw., I use thinkfan to control the temperature and fan speed
My /etc/thinkfan.conf settings are:
sensor /proc/acpi/ibm/thermal (2, 7, 8, 0, 0, 0, 7, 0, 12, 5, 5)
(0, 0, 54)
(1, 50, 57)
(2, 52, 59)
(3, 54, 63)
(4, 56, 65)
(5, 59, 66)
(7, 63, 32767)
Thanks in advance,
since jack1 release is taking pretty long, i decided to stop waiting
with a tschack release.
tschack is an SMP aware fork of jack1.
its a dropin replacement like jack2.
- jack1 mlocking
- controlapi which works even when libjackserver.so is loaded RTLD_LOCAL
- smp aware
- strictly synchronous like jack1. (-> no latency penalty)
- clickless connections.
- shuts down audio processing when cpu is overloaded for too long.
i also released PyJackd which is a wrapper around libjackserver.
- commandline for backendswitching
- pulseaudio dbus reservation.

"Cheshire-Puss," she began, "would you tell me, please,
which way I ought to go from here?"
"That depends a good deal on where you want to get to," said the Cat.
"I don't care much where--" said Alice.
"Then it doesn't matter which way you go," said the Cat.
