If you take a closer look at the disk-read/write tests I think there is less cpu-latency with the ck-kernel.

Well, actually I will test the new gaming-sources available in portage (and the plain vanilla kernel just to compare the graphs with the other three).

Mybe I see a bit clearer then.

I'll post the results here.

Hi

I have playing with Spiral synth modular quite a beat (alongside with Hydrogen) but I can't get SSM to work with jack. It connects, Jack sees it but there is no sound
anybody had any success?

soundiver replacement for linux?

I use emagic sounddiver to interface my Bass Pod to my midi inputs/outputs on my soundcard. It'd be sweet if I could use this functionality in linux as it extends the functionality of my pod by a lot. I've tried it running using wine but it didn't like that at all. I've not got a lot of experience with midi so I don't even know if the ports are set up properly with alsa. *shrugs*

well, i used to make music using screamtracker on the pc. i'd be very interested in this project :)

i had a quick scoot around the net and found a couple of cool apps that people might be interested in looking at:

Compiling wine to use with VSTServer.
Vstserver enables you to use vst plugins in linux.

I'll let you know how well it works and maybe write a little howto if successfull wish me luck!

One more month before I graduate, and then I want to start on a comprehensive howto music application in linux, so if you are testing some music apps, I'd like to hear your experience, tips etc...

benchmarks of different kernels would be usefull too.

Just a piece of information:
There a a big Linux Conference in July in Karlsruhe, Germany.
If you have a look at Saturdays schedule
http://www.linuxtag.org/2003/de/conferences/program-12.07.2003.html
you see a bit of linux-and-sound presentations.
I plan to attend Sat. and Sun.
Usually all the papers and presentations are available for download or can be ordered on cd after the conference weekend, might be quite interesting for all of you who cannot be there.

Just like to mention that I'm running the jackd audio server with a latency of 64 samples while compiling(!). Experiencing no underruns at all, and this is after days of struggling with Alsa (at best I get mono output). Using the latest gaming-sources.

This is a pleasant surprise indeed, with crackles in Windows even at high latencies. I don't really think Windows is to blame in this matter though, as there seems to be some weirdness related to this motherboard (A7N8X), probably IRQ sharing.

Hey guys, still interrested in doing that gentoo soundtrack? I've been working on an electronic project for quite a while now and I'd love to contribute a track or two. So let me know!

I'm also a gentoo-musician. I write mainly experimental electronic and some techno. I've been way to busy to write any music lately, but that will hopefully change this summer. I'm a huge fan of csound, and at the moment am using it mainly to compose pieces with granular synthesis. I'm hoping to get my keyboard plugged into my computer this summer so I can start playing with (and maybe even developing) pd. I've worked with Max/MSP recently as part of an avant garde electronic music classs that I'm in, and I think that type of environment has a lot of potential.

In true linux spirit I'd be interested in collaborating with some other musicians in creating tracks together. Maybe this could be a new use for CVS?! :-)

Volunteering myself as bass player... :-D

CVS eh? I think that's a great idea.

i'm a violinist and aspiring composer...

i use noteedit and highly reccomend it. i can export what i write as midi and get playback using timidity++ or kmidi. if there's a better music editing program for gnome, i'd be interested (since gnome is my primary de).

a gentoo theme song could be anywhere in the range of sort of cool to really lame. but it'd definitely be fun for us musicians.

Surely some purists might say this one is evil :twisted:, but here is a link to a blog on devdsp.net, how to run Buzz on Linux using WINE.
http://devdsp.net/index.pl?main=articles_full&blockid=1102
I tried it and at least Buzz started and did not crash...

Ok,
life has just got brighter for me:
http://jamin.sourceforge.net/
this is CVS only, and i'll work on a ebuild at the week end.
now, this bad boy requires a couple of things to compile.
first is autoconf 2.5:
Code:
 WANT_AUTOCONF_2_5="yes" sh autogen.sh


next it wants fftw-3.0.
fine, just rename the fftw-2.5.ebuild.
it builds fine.
now make, make install, jam is done. edit .jamrc.
start jack, jamin and....
complains about not having the swh pluggins at runtime. :?
so I go ahead and compile the new swh ebuild, and boom:
Code:
checking for fftw_one in -lsfftw... no
checking for fftw_one in -lfftw... no
configure: error: Could not find working fftw library. Package now requires it

!!! ERROR: media-plugins/swh-plugins-0.4.0 failed.
!!! Function econf, Line 273, Exitcode 1
!!! econf failed
:cry:
can anybody try and compare experience?

PS: I wish I had found about this 2 weeks ago. My recording portfolio is due in on wednesday, and I could have done with some mastering at home... :?

The swh-plugins need fftw-2*.
It's in the install-docs on the jamin site.
I compiled fftw-3* by hand and emerged swh (including fftw-2*) without probs.
I just can't compile jamin from cvs right now.
Will try again soon.
Maybe we should try to make an ebuild for this?

Ok, got it up and running...
Two probs I had:
Had to ln -s /usrl/lib/ladspa /usr/local/lib/ladspa
(I installed everything --prefix=/usr)
And the pixmaps were not installed so I copied them to /usr/share/pixmaps.

Oh, and there is a '}' missing in the .jamrc file (line 143) but that'll soon be fixed in cvs I think.

But it's a dirty hack to symlink a lib-directory, just look at the console output of jack-rack and you know why.
It'll complain about the same plugin in two different directories.
Nevertheless, jam looks very promising!

No, it is the dog's B******s. Honest, I just mastered one tune, consisting of tablas, violin, clarinet, music box and 2 percussionist with an aray of small percussions.
I have been able to do what i couldn't on our protools rig at uni!!
this is EXTREMELY impressive.

For a neural-networks project last year a friend of mine and I wrote a piece of software which could pick out a bass-line from amongst a standard musical track and print it out in tab or whatever. Is this original or have people done it before by simpler methods? I'm wondering if nobody has ever done it before as you'd think otherwise all the tab on the net wouldn't be so shit.

If
A: This is original
and
B: People think they'd love this (Even if just to auto-score their own playing)
then
I'd be interested in making it work properly (As at the moment it isn't 100% succesful, and has some serious problems with repeated notes, and also has seriously crap training times) and possibly opening up the project for others to work on to if they were interested.

Let me know.

Puggy
