Graphical frontend for jack_bufsize

This little helper is now easier to adapt to your needs. It's a simple shell script. Changes to older versions: ⋅ different list of bufsizes dependent on the sample rate ⋅ easier modification of the offered bufsizes ⋅ use of notify_send, e.g. for XFCE4 ⋅ handl...

Re: How to record deezer songs to mp3?

If everything else fails: Everything that can be played can be recorded. Like in those times where I sat in front of the radio and recorded the songs with ma tape recorder. If you set up jackd and configure Pulseaudio to output via jack-sink then you can record everything with Audacity using its jac...

Re: Qtractor: automatic mixer window placement

How exactly do you use Deverspie? Is there a tutorial? Seems useful. I configure it with gDevilspie. It's self-explaining. I found its rules/receipts in .devilspie in my home dir. Devilspie has to be active permanently. GDevilspie offers to start/stop it (useful when adding or changing receipts) an...

Re: Notebook Tuning

I have no idea how to measure it. It's about those RT CPU spikes that cause xruns occasionally and force me to use a bigger buffer size. Now my Qtractor projects run slightly better and I can choose somewhat lower buffer sizes without xruns.

Notebook Tuning

Ihave the impression that blacklisting the modules for the built-in USB cam and Bluetooth makes audio processing more reliable. I put the two attachments into /etc/modprobe.d blacklist-uvcvideo.conf blacklist uvcvideo blacklist-bluetooth.conf blacklist bluetooth blacklist btrtl blacklist btintel bla...

Re: Ultralite AVB

AFAIR, it's better to set the sample-rate in a script as well, since the interface keeps it's settings/presets somehow sample-rate specific. For me, the Interface changes samplerate to 192kHz when booting up a USB-connected PC sometimes. In other words: It doesn't "remember" the eq becaus...

Beware:Only 1st and 2nd Gen are perfect for Linux.

The upcoming 3rd Gen is probably broken because you need Windows or Mac to switch it to Class Compliant mode.

But 1st and 2nd Gen are great.

Re: Microphone recommendations for speech

I'm on the market for a nice microphone for speech - think webcast/podcast material, but I want it to sound professional. I already have a UA-25EX interface, so either an XLR or a USB mic would work. Budget is, say, up to EUR 100 - though I'd be interested to learn what the quality differences are ...
