When recording acoustic guitar wearing headphones, the delay between
the note being played and the headphone output is so noticeable that
for fingerpicking with only but a soft synth pad as background, it is
difficult to play a good track. It is way too distracting. The
workaround is to put a click, a high hat for instance and be oblivious
of anything else and try for the best. But it is certainly not free
playing as if playing along when the same is coming out the speakers.
In Ardour 4.6.0 changing the monitoring from Ardour to hardware does not
improve anything. Any advice, hints, suggestions will be much
appreciated. Here is the setup. 1010LT card with playback outputs 3
and 4 send to a Behringer HA400 headphone amp. Just about no plugins
in Ardour, No xruns seen in quite some time (eg. i5 3.40GHz CPU is very
likely running under no stress) 16G RAM.
It would be so nice to have no delay at all!

For Ubuntu kernels 4.4.X (e.g. for upcoming 16.04 LTS), the above bug and
missing snd-ice1712.ko appears to be the problem.
I've added some comments to the above, and also linked the bug to
application mudita24(1) that is disabled by lack of snd_ice1712 module in
the 4.4 kernel:
The ice1712 .ko file is missing in 4.4.X:
$ ls -l /lib/modules/4.4.1-040401-generic/kernel/sound/pci/ice1712/
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 247046 Jan 31 12:48 snd-ice1724.ko
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 9230 Jan 31 12:48 snd-ice17xx-ak4xxx.ko
In the 4.3.X kernel, snd-ice1712.ko is present and envy24 soundcards work:
$ ls -l /lib/modules/4.3.0-040300-generic/kernel/sound/pci/ice1712/
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 120838 Nov 2 07:01 snd-ice1712.ko
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 246270 Nov 2 07:01 snd-ice1724.ko
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 9230 Nov 2 07:01 snd-ice17xx-ak4xxx.ko
If this doesn't get fixed, people upgrading to Ubuntu 16.04 LTS will not
have use of soundcards such as M-Audio Delta 1010, Delta 1010LT, Delta DiO
2496, Delta 66, Delta 44, Delta 410 and Audiophile 2496. Terratec EWS 88MT,
EWS 88D, EWX 24/96, DMX 6Fire, Phase 88. Hoontech Soundtrack DSP 24,
Soundtrack DSP 24 Value, Soundtrack DSP 24 Media 7.1. Event Electronics
EZ8. Digigram VX442. Lionstracs, Mediastaton. Terrasoniq TS 88.
To the "end user", application mudita24(1) will exit inexplicably, printing
only a message to stdout they're unlikely to see:
No ICE1712 cards found
PS: this message brought to you by Skylake, which necessitates a > 4.3
PPS: anybody have a pointer to a 4.4.1-compiled snd-ice1712.ko they coaxed
out of the build by themselves?
have had this android 5.1 tablet klipad smart i745 as a gift, and it
will be fun to use it to do the fader automation in Ardour.
Is there somebody on the list, that could say that it's possible to do,
or if am losing my time to try this?
At this point, am always searching a way to communicate between the
tablet and the pc, and am not sure at all if it's via USB or thru the
router that it have to be done..
A new release of the guitarix-webui is out, it fix a issue in the
controller value commitment to the engine.
The guitarix webui is a browser based UI to control guitarix remotely
either from a PC or a Android device.

That is not correct (DRC only for Windows).
If you read just a little past the section 4 with the theory of operation,
section 5 begins with this:
"DRC can be compiled either under Win32 or Linux, but because of its
simplicity it will probably work under most operating systems with a
decent C++ compiler with support for the standard template library (STL)."
I'm searching for an alternative to jack-play. I don't like using an
The main use is to send different one-shot-samples across different
outputs of my HDSP9652 in a bash-script (or similar).
What are my options?
This is a short improv on a simple riff. Two acoustic guitars, one
acoustic bass guitar, a bit of synth here and there. A bit more than a
minute and a half. What's new here is the use of two mics for
the instruments. I have a M-Audio Pulsar (not Pulsar 2) that I forgot
about since I got the AT-2020 a year ago. So I uncovered it, plugged
it, aimed both and pressed record. The strumming went along. I kept
it, then I added the lead and bass, and some colours. Then fiddled a
bit with the volumes, EQ, reverb (using the free U-he Protoverb), wave
volume editing in Ardour.
I have a GeneralMusic RealPiano Expander tone generator, a one-unit high
rack-mount half-width hardware sound source, to give away free to
someone who may be interested.
This sound module or tone generator responds to MIDI signals and
produces a variety of sounds (pianos, electric pianos, vibes, etc.). It
was very well-regarded in its day (just 12-15 years ago), and
GeneralMusic was famous for modeling sympathetic string resonance into
their piano samples/sounds, before Roland later "invented" modeled
string resonance for their piano sound engines in their digital pianos
(such as the current RD-800) and rack-mounted tone generators (such as
This GeneralMusic tone generator still works great, EXCEPT that the
front LCD display seems to be nearly worn out and does not give a very
good indication of changes made when front-panel buttons are pushed. I'm
not enough of an electronic tinkerer to fix or replace the LCD screen,
so this tone module might better be given to someone who is more
proficient at taking electronic devices apart and working a little on them.
It's free to whomever might like it, although if the shipping expenses
are high I might ask the recipient to help pay for the shipping. It's a
small unit though and shouldn't cost too much to ship within the United
States, and perhaps not too much to ship to Europe or elsewhere with
help from the recipient.
If you are interested in this very nice, somewhat older MIDI tone
generator / sound-module, let me know at my email address,
I may not choose the first person to express an interest in the device;
instead, I will consider several factors before making a decision as to
whom to give it to. I love the sounds it produces, but as I mentioned it
needs a little work (unless someone wants to use it "blind," without
having much feedback from the LCD screen (the manual will be included))
and have plenty of other sound sources to work with now.
