A video from a recent performance of my band playing one of my songs:
My brother shot it with a new recorder, he doesn't quite have the audio
settings optimized, but it's the best vid we've got of the band so far.
Just so I wouldn't be utterly OT I did the titles and rendering with the
latest Kdenlive. :)
With Ardour 3 coming along, and looking set to support only LV2 synth
plugins, I've just been writing up some notes on the various LV2 synth
plugins that are around at the moment. I've listed them here:
I hope I've covered all the big ones, but are there any that I'm
missing? I'd love for this to be a handy resource for new users when
Ardour hits the big 3.0.
i've recently bought a Behringer ADA8000 but i can't make it work with my
RME Multiface II. I can't get any signal from the RME ADAT input.
The Multiface II is set to master and the ADA8000 as slave and they are
connected via wordclock and with a toslink cable (ADA8000 out -> Multiface
II in). ADA8000 says it's locked, hdspconf says nothing is locked, and i
have no lights on or blinking on the front panel of the Multiface II.
Has anyone a clue?
Thank you in advance.
Don't know how many of you follow the progress of video / animation development, but Blender has a GSOC project involving 3D audio. It includes things such a audio sources moving in
3D space as well as things like the doppler effect for moving audio sources. There is an iteresting video demonstrating the current progress.
Which packages are needed for ambisonics? In other words, which packages
should be in a distro, to provide people the right tools for working
I did a little research and found:
Any missing or unneeded packages here?
I have two files, file reports the following on them:
RIFF (little-endian) data, WAVE audio, mono 44100 Hz
RIFF (little-endian) data, WAVE audio, Microsoft PCM, 16 bit, mono 44100 Hz
How can I convert the first to something that has the "Microsoft PCM, 16
bit"-part in file's output? Sox always seems to output the former...
NB: It's for input into another program that is very picky with it's
file type, so far it seems that only files with "Microsoft PCM..." works.
Does anybody know writings about binaural (and ambisonics) how to handle
overhead and underfoot issues? I suspect that there are some tricks to
handle it, even if it might be impossible to do it perfectly. I'm not
especially interested in being able to produce overhead and underfoot
sound, but to prevent that sound became unwanted overhead or underfoot.
Friends and I did amateur microphonics in the 80's, inspired by
professional recordings we heard from the 70's. Reading the web I found
that it's a well known issue, but there were no hints how to handle this
issue. Does it help to use some kind of software, e.g. ambisonics to
calculate better binaural results? Are there any audio examples for
overhead and underfoot that can be heard with stereo headphones? I had a
telephone chat with somebody from the list, he will produce and send me
an example, unfortunately he's on a trip (travel not drug ;) at the
moment. If there should exist already such an example, it would be nice
to give me a link.

We are on about putting documentary material in
loop in specific radio (webradio) stations.
People can hear some radios, do a live mix,
resulting on a new webradio station (link).
This was done twice (or three times, dont recall)
here in Brasil as a national activitie, always on saturdays:
We called it 'collective and diffuse webradio' (translated from
Brazilian Portuguese), or simply 'diffuse webradio'.
I like the idea of putting Wikileaks stuff. Maybe
do a special session on it or always have some wikileaks
A special on the 'Collateral Murder' audio (from video)?
ps. this is not only for documentary material, some musical mixes
can be done. We cannot count on sync afaik...
Some PD patches were made for live mixing bunch of webradios.
Using Rivendell or Airtime are possibilities not yet explored afaik.
This sounds really interesting. :-)

I've just seen, that youtube obviously is encouraging yet another new format
on their website. Now it's webM. Is there a simple way to play these files?
Again mark one restraint for my setup: It has to be commandline?
