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.
today we have published the video of another single of John Option: Any.
Of course the song is published under the terms of the Creative Commons
License (CC-BY-SA) and it's completely produced with free software:
Ardour, Hydrogen, Jack, Qsynth, CALF, and many other
great free audio software that we used under Debian GNU/Linux.
Here you can listen the single and see the video (made with kdenlive):
As for the previous songs we have done a little more in the direction of
freedom and we published in our website the single recording tracks
and the complete Ardour session. All this material is published under
the terms of the Creative Commons license Attribution Share alike so
that anyone can use our tracks to produce a remix of our song or even a
new song that have to be published under the same license.

I hope that you like our choice of freedom. If you feel like I'd love
to read your feedback, because the encouragement of the people who
listen to us and appreciate the philosophy of our project is the only
fuel for us to continue. And if you like to be updated about our next

I'm happy to report that as of this morning, 100-Watt KNYO-FM in Fort Bragg California (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/KNYO-LP) is running on Linux, Linux Audio and Free Software.
(Well, then again, I can't speak for their website; I didn't set that up, and it looks like an F5 box, dunno what they run. But the actual streaming and broadcast radio signal chain up to the transmitter is Linux.)
The FM transmitter is in a remote location getting its audio program from a Raspberry Pi running Raspbian connected via DSL to a Linode running Airtime and Icecast2 for station automation and streaming. The studio machine is a Linux Mint XFCE box running The BUTT connected via DSL to the Linode and Airtime. I've done a few Liquidsoap customizations to Airtime to fill in missing features (AutoDJ, saving incoming streams, etc) and will be doing more, possibly contributing them upstream if I can keep them clean and general enough.
I'm the (un?)lucky owner of an M-Audio Fast Track Pro USB audio
interface and I'm having some serious problems getting this device to
record audio reliably under Linux.
I've been using arecord and occasionally Audacity for all of my
testing. My problem is this: Recording a take works about 80% of the
time. In the remaining ~20% of cases, the captured audio is extremely
loud with severe digital distortion. Once this problem shows up, it
persists for any subsequent takes. The only way I've found to make
the problem go away, at least temporarily, is to power-cycle the Fast
I considered the possibility that this particular device might be
defective, but it seems to work wonderfully under Windows.
I'm calling out to other Fast Track Pro users in the hope that someone
out there has encountered the same problem and better still, found a
Any suggestions at all would be greatly appreciated!
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!
Research tells me that QSynth seems to be the only currently
available/usable GUI for FluidSynth, but I get big xruns whenever I try and
use it. FluidSynth itself doesn't cause me problems (I know because I'm able
to use the FluidSynth-DSSI plugin fine in Rosegarden etc). The problem is
that I want to use FluidSynth with Ardour3, but Ardour3 doesn't support DSSI
plugins yet. So the only solution I have is to find a standalone interface
for FluidSynth and then to link up using Jack. I looked at the old GUI
'FluidGUI' but it seems to be so old that it won't properly install on
recent versions of Ubuntu.
So does anyone know of:
1) A GUI for FluidSynth other than QSynth and FluidGUI?... or
2) An application other than the above 2 which would allow me to load
Thanks in advance.
I was very excited to find a video of the
Tristan and Isolde on YouTube recently,
I used the youtube-dl utility to grab the video,
when I began playing the copy on my hard-drive
totem, to my horror, the English subtitles
not there! To repeat, the subtitles are on
youtube.com but not in the .webm file that
downloaded with youtube-dl.
Can someone coach me how to download a version
with the English subtitles? Or are there subtitles
in my downloaded version and totem is just not

I found this old discussion about the Zoom R16 in the archive of LAU.
Strangely, in that archive there is a missing reply from Mr. Brett McCoy.
(You can find the missing one a the bottom of this archive:
Mr. McCoy claims to have enabled the Zoom R8 (yes, there is quite a
difference between r16 and r8) as a multi-input soundcard for ardour and
also as a control surface in 12.04 64bits.
There is no information as to which driver is being in use in his post. And
searching the web only leads me to various WIP to get the R16 running on
My question is, has anyone got any news about this device and a possible
Specifically to Mr. Brett McCoy: what driver did you use to make jack aware
of your r8?
Thank full for any hints, yours,
