Re: pod x3 using ubuntu

I'm mostly interested to send Midi commands to the pod and to be able to download some tone patches (l6t files). Has anybody succeeded with that in any Linux? Apologies for reviving this old thread, but I've been wondering the same thing... Many years ago, I owned a Pod Pro and I was very happy wit...

Re: The Golden Bottom

Really nice! While I agree that the choice of sounds may be improved (it sounds like the background classical guitar is MIDI too?), I enjoyed the music. The beginning reminded me of some of the quieter Rondo Veneziano tracks, while the guitar part brought Gary Moore to mind, maybe because it has a c...

Re: Só Danço Samba (Yet another Friday lunch jam session)

Thanks everybody. I love bossanova, and have always been particularly envious of who can play it: I wouldn't know how to start! Great track! I don't really know much about bossanova at all, this just happened to be in the book we're playing from: The Real Easy Book . I guess it's because bossanova ...

Re: Last Summer

Thank you all for the nice words! The ukulele sounds like the input gain was a little high, or maybe the mic was too close. Yeah, I tried to fix that a bit, but in some parts the gain remained way too high. The mic is a small round pick-up that you put on the Ukulele itself, so I don't think you can...

Re: The landscape with the mill

I particularly love the acoustic arpeggio in the background in the first minute, and how the electric guitar plays on that: it reminds me of some brief instrumentals Malmsteen played in some older albums, good work!

Re: Routing different MIDI instruments to different applications

qmidiroute and its configurable number of ports was definitely what I needed! Very easy to route specific notes/program changes from a specific channel to a specific MIDI port. Thanks for the quick reply and the good help!

Re: Routing different MIDI instruments to different applications

Someone else mentioned qmidiroute as well, which does have a GUI and seems easier with its rules, but also seems limited to two output ports: For qmidiroute 2 ports is default, but there is command line option to select number of ports. I knew I was missing something obvious... Thanks! I'll start t...

Routing different MIDI instruments to different applications

Hi all, not sure if my question belongs here or to the "Recorders & Sequencers" section, since it's more MIDI related, but since it all starts from a requirement I have using Lilypond and Frescobaldi I thought I'd ask here. Please let me know if this should be moved elsewhere. Just to ...

Last Summer

It's been a few weeks since I last published something. The reason is I've been working on 4-5 tracks at the same time, none of which I'm even close to completing since work has started taking its toll, and it's hard to find the time or energy... A couple of days ago, though, I picked my Ukulele and...

Re: Eurydice

Thanks for posting this. Very nice work with this track. Tchaikovsky was the master of program music, and this is a solid stab in that direction. (The 1812 Overture always makes me cry.) There are so many pieces by Tchaikovsky that make me emotional, or unsettle me in a "good" way. As a g...

Thanks! And that's the exact picture I chose to use on Soundcloud, as I felt it matched the myth perfectly.

Re: Eurydice

I can already tell we're going to be great friends. I have his book about harmony as a reference. Ah, I never read that. I did read the Principles of Orchestration by Rimsky-Korsakov, another one of my favourites. I was a tough one for me, as while I can very slowly read music (I never had formal t...

Re: Intro (to the album I'll never publish!)

I quite liked it! You can work those Rakarrack presets, for sure! I agree. That Angel's Chorus preset sounds awesome! It really is, and I've found I particularly love the "cleaner" presets in Rakarrack, which is where I think it really excels. Apart from the "Succulent clean" I ...
