You are right, the behavior is completely different when opening after the
first time. It appears that the first time the application is run there
are some resources not yet setup, but when they are created the
application does not load them right away. Run once, shut down, run again
and all the translated text labels and menus are available.
It does look like it could be interesting.
A student of mine is traveling and will be in the San Francisco area
soon (within the next couple weeks). She'd like to see some musical
sites, so of course I've recommended she check out CCRMA. Are there any
other notable places or events - music stores, art museums, concerts -
that she could check out while she's there ? Any and all recommendations
appreciated ! She's a beginner in electronic music production, working
mainly with a Grimes-like setup including Ableton Live, a nice Arturia
controller, a few good VST synth plugins, and - best of all - an open
mind and a receptive ear.
Thanks in advance !
Have you ever wanted to use cm-incudine, but felt like it was too hard
or too much work to install on your Arch Linux-based distro? Now you can
install it with https://github.com/brandflake11/install-cm-incudine
<https://github.com/brandflake11/install-cm-incudine>. This script will
take you from zero to hero, installing emacs, slime, quicklisp, and all
of the dependencies needed for cm-incudine.
Hopefully this helps you install cm-incudine if you've ever been
interested, but couldn't figure out all of the smaller bits. Feedback is
Thank you very much for your time,

Is Open Sound Control still a thing? Was it ever?
I am shopping for a mixer, I am a bit worried that the digital controls
are a bit too propitiatory. I do not want to get orphaned by a firm
going out of business and letting its iPad App rot. OSC looks like a
solution, but it does not seem to be implemented by many vendors
I am hoping that eventually the mixer will be controllable by the
software I am building around a Raspberry Pi
If not me then who? If not now then when? If not here then where?

Hi everyone from a new one to this list.
It is a sort of experiment. Suppose you have a multi channel audio file, i.e.
composed by, say, three, or four different channels. Is it possibile (I guess
it is), and how?, to send each of the four channels into a different
loudspeaker and so listen to the song...? Do you think, e.g., the Behringer
UMC404HD audio interface will allow to do that?
Thanks in advance for any help,
I have recently acquired a Focusrite SaffireLE (analog: 4ins & 6 outs,
firewire) and I am trying to figure out how can I consolidate its analog
ins/outs with the rest of my setup:
The same audio server hosts other soundcards that are happily driven by
alsa. so JACK can see all the rest of the sound cards (through zita-a2j,
Now comes the firewire card. If I start a separate jackd session with the
jackd -R -n firejack -dfirewire
then I get to see 6 ins and 8 outs (digital in/out included). I have 2
problems with this setup:
- how do I connect the 2 jack sessions (with 0ms latency if possible). I
tried with zita-n2j but with anything less than 100ms buffer the sound is
- I tried to route some audio stream to each one of the outputs but from
some outputs I could not get any sound, then routing to out1,2 would play
from physical outs 3,4 - so not ideal.
I tried to use the ffado-mixer to fiddle around with routing , but did not
Then I thought, to use the alsa driver , since alsa "sees" the card
$ cat /proc/asound/cards
6 [SaffireLE ]: BeBoB - SaffireLE
Focusrite SaffireLE (id:2, rev:1), GUID
00130e010004184f at fw1.0, S400
but aplay only registeres a single PCM device:
$ aplay -l
card 6: SaffireLE [SaffireLE], device 0: BeBoB [SaffireLE PCM]
Subdevice #0: subdevice #0
so this is not ideal. IS there a way to get the alsa driver to identify all
the ins and outs ?
Alternatively, is there a better way to use a single jack session and load
the 2nd backend as well ? (maybe through audioadapter or otherwise)
Finally, is there a chance to coordinate 2 jack sessions (each with one of
alsa, firewire backends) with 0 latency between them ? In this setup does
anyone have experience with SaffireLE and how to control the mixer?
