Hi Linux Audio Users and Developers
Last week the MOD Duo kickstarter campaign was successfully funded and we’re now heading towards turning the Duo into a reality!
As most, if not all, of our software is related to Linux Audio we would like to have the community involved in the development as much as we can.
To do so we created a mailing list and registered an IRC channel.
The mailing list located at http://portalmod.com/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/developers
and the IRC channel is #portalmod at freenode.
We’re soon to start discussions regarding the ControlChain (our LV2 hardware communication protocol) and also methods of optimizing the plugin graph cpu usage and we’d like to have as many people involved as we can.
Of course the discussion is not limited to those topics and any thing regarding the MOD can be discussed at such places.
Hope to see you guys on our lists.
Best wishes to everyone
The MOD Team
A long time i didn't post here, and now for something a bit OT:
I just finished to write a tiny Qt based software for DIYers on
loudspeaker enclosure design, under Linux. It is inspired by the
discontinued gspeakers Gtk+ based software. For the moment it has
basic only features, but it is usable, though there is a long TODO.
I you are interested, (and if some debian packager is around here,
[whisling] ;-) you can checkout the svn tree and try it yourself:
$ svn co https://dbx.gtmp.org/svn/qspeakers/ [*]
$ cd qspeakers; qmake -config release && make && sudo make install
(it will install in /usr/local/..)
There is a 4 or 5 speakers DB for a start, but it won't be visible
if qspeaker is not _installed_. After installation, first run will
copy the DB into ~/.local/share/data/Herewe/QSpeakers so that you
can edit it with your own speaker's Thiele-Small parameters.
Thank you for trying !
[*] thanks to Mid', a friend of mine, who gave me some space on his server.

You could try checking whether the PCI card is detected in the cases where
the firmware is not loaded. It is PCI and not PCIe?
Compare the output of lspci in the good vs. failing case and verify that
the PCI card is detected, because the driver will never load and attempt
to find the external interface if the PCI part of the interface is not
I made this one-off hack based on the vorbis lib sample code, for concatenating ogg files. The README has more details:
That itch is now scratched; but others might find it useful too, so here it is.
Keith McMillen has marketed their QuNeo controller as "Open Source" on
Kickstarter and other places (google "quneo open source"), while
actually it is not "open source" for any reasonable definition of the
term. Editor software source code, which is crucial for using the
device with Linux, has only reluctantly been released to a closed group
of beta testers. People are understandably disappointed.
What do you think?
The following is from Keith McMillen forum:

I have a project in Ardour which has much more iterations of verses
than the fnal project wil have, for the sake of explorations,
improvisations, etc. Is it practical to work on the structure itself
or should I redo all the tracks from scratch with a new count of
verses ? By 'practical' I mean are there tools and tricks that would
make it easier to take out one verse made out of say, 7 tracks ? The
project is in sync with the metronome, if it helps. I can see that it
is possible to select one verse across all the tracks and then delete
it. Since I do not know that much all that Ardour can do, I'm asking
here if there are better ways to do that using specific Ardour commands
that might be better to the task than selecting with a mouse on a
finer-grained display of the tracks. Is it also possible to store a
cut-out verse somewhere persistently to use it later ? - thanks for
any comments and suggestions !
My system (with ubuntu 14.04) is loading the hdsp firmware for an RME
Multiface only 50% of the time on start up. It's like flipping a coin.
I've not been able to figure out how to fix it.
I've saved the dmesg printout from a successful boot (good) and an
unsuccessful (bad) here:
and the keyword to search for is "hammerfall".
I was having trouble with the NVidia driver some time back and perhaps
there's a conflict there but I don't know.
If anyone can help - please do!
