I know that sibelius 1.4 runs under wine. I haven't been able to get v2 to run yet. I work as a professional transcriptionist. As much as I love linux, rosegarden (et al) is just not mature enough for the industry (it is for more personal type usage). :( Oh well. Currently I am running Sibelius 2, Final Cut Pro, and Protools on my Mac 17" Powerbook. I LOVE it. I just can't wait for Mac on Linux (OS X version) to be released. Then I can run all the linux stuff I love in a virtual machine :).

As a bass player I'd love to see such a prog!
Count me in as beta tester.

puggy:
that sounds awesome. I'm a bass player too!

Zypher:
thanks for your tips on getting jamin up and working.
It might be of interest that a new release of swh-pluggin is out, or will be very soon. It compiles against fftw-3*, so that'll make things simpler in getting a jamin ebuild together. I'll ask on the jamin devel list if they mind a jamin-cvs ebuild.
if not i'll start on it on friday when I come back (if you don't beat me to it.

btw, I have a ssm-cvs ebuild as well. jack object has been working for quite a while now. I have been havin tromendous fun with hydrogen+ssm+ardour.

lastly:

Two probs I had:
Had to ln -s /usrl/lib/ladspa /usr/local/lib/ladspa

LADSPA_PATH is the answer to this one.
Quote:
And the pixmaps were not installed so I copied them to /usr/share/pixmaps.

have to have a look where ardour installs its pixmaps and follow the scheme in case of jamin-cvs ebuild.

Well, I've got exams at the moment but once I'm done I'll look into it a bit more.

It'll probably be a start from scratch on the code as it was rushed together, and a windows app. So if a few people are interested I'll set up a project on sourceforge or something and we can get on it.

Guitarist here! Aspiring metalhead really :lol: trying to emulate the super-talented people in the European metal scene..

I'd love to help! Just that..I've never actually tried to record anything with gentoo yet. I'll have to give it a shot!

i'm looking for a versatile drum loop machine for linux. anyone got reason 2 running under wine? i wonder if there's a similar app for linux too. the only one that i know of is trommler and this one is quite... uhm, pre alpha?

update: ok i found hydrogen that is (at least) a "simple drum machine", i'll take a look.

Try hydrogen (in portage).
The 0.8.0 release is really nice and easy to work with (check the demos!)

fellow musicians,
Here are two ebuilds of two programs that u might enjoy, both cvs.

First is the amazing [url=jamin.sourceforge.net]JAMIN[/url].
WARNING **** BETA SOFTWARE ****
I think I have all the deps right. U need swh-plugin-0.4.2, if its not in portage, just rename swh-plugin-0.4.0.
Code:
inherit cvs           

DESCRIPTION="A mastering application for jack"
HOMEPAGE="http://jamin.sourceforge.net/"

ECVS_SERVER="cvs.jamin.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/jamin"
ECVS_MODULE="jam"
ECVS_TOP_DIR="${DISTDIR}/cvs-src/jamin/"

SRC_URI=""


SLOT="0"
LICENSE="GPL-2 LGPL-2.1"
KEYWORDS="~x86 ~ppc"
DEBUG="yes"
DEPEND="$DEPEND
        dev-libs/glib
   >=media-libs/alsa-lib-0.9.0_rc6
   >=media-libs/libsndfile-1.0.0
   >=media-plugins/swh-plugins-0.4.2
   >=media-sound/jack-cvs-0.7.0"

#S="${WORKDIR}/${P}"
S="${WORKDIR}/${PN/-cvs/}"
src_compile() {
   export WANT_AUTOCONF_2_5=1
   sh autogen.sh
   econf ${myconf}|| die "configure failed"
   emake || die "parallel make failed"
}

src_install() {
       
           einstall || die "make install failed"


    pushd ${WORKDIR}
           cd pixmaps
           dodir /usr/share/jamin/pixmaps
           cp * ${D}/usr/share/jamin/pixmaps
        popd

}


pkg_postinst() {
   einfo "********************************************"
   einfo "edit your .jamrc"
   einfo "pixmaps are in /usr/share/jamin/pixmaps"
   einfo "********************************************"
}

ps: call the ebuild jam-cvs-0.1.ebuild, and put it in /usr/local/portage/media-sound/jam-cvs or where ever is PORTDIR_OVERLAY pointing to.

Next is SpiralSynthModular, cvs ebuild. The CVS version has several enhancement, including much better jack support.
Code:
inherit cvs

DESCRIPTION="SSM is a object oriented modular softsynth/ sequencer/ sampler."
HOMEPAGE="http://www.pawfal.org/Software/SSM/"
#SRC_URI="mirror://sourceforge/spiralmodular/${P}.tar.gz"

#ECVS_SERVER="cvs.spiralmodular.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/spiralmodular"
ECVS_MODULE="ssm"
ECVS_TOP_DIR="$DISTDIR/cvs-src/spiralmodular"

#SRC_URI=""

LICENSE="GPL-2"
SLOT="0"
KEYWORDS="~x86"
RDEPEND=">=x11-libs/fltk-1.1 \
   media-libs/ladspa-sdk"

DEPEND=">=x11-libs/fltk-1.1 \
   virtual/jack \
   media-libs/ladspa-sdk"

S="$WORKDIR/${PN/-cvs/}"

src_compile () {

   sh autogen.sh
   for i in `find . -name Makefile.in`
   do    cat $i|sed s/CXXFLAGS=\\t@CXXFLAGS@/CXXFLAGS=\\t@CXXFLAGS@\ @FLTK_CXXFLAGS@/ |sed s/CFLAGS\\t=\\t@CFLAGS@/CFLAGS\\t=\\t@CFLAGS@\ @FLTK_CFLAGS@/ > $i.new
      mv $i $i.old
      mv $i.new $i
      rm $i.old
   done
        myconf="--enable-shared  --enable-jack"
   econf ${myconf} || die "configure failed"
   emake || die
}

src_install() {
   dodir /usr/bin /usr/lib /usr/share/man /usr/share/info
   dodoc Examples/*
   make bindir=${D}/usr/bin libdir=${D}/usr/lib mandir=${D}/usr/share/man infodir=${D}/usr/share/info datadir=${D}/usr/share install || die
}

pkg_postinst() {

        einfo ""
        einfo "Remember to remove any old ~/.sprialmodular files"
        einfo ""
}

this one is called ssm-cvs-0.1.ebuild

:lol:
They are both in bugzilla, and I am thinking about submitting them to breakmygentoo :wink:

my apologies for skipping the bulk of this thread, but i'm very VERY tired and i wanted to add my voice.
I've been drumming for 6 years since the age of 11 and I've been mixing mp3s (atomixmp3 for windows --- great app) for about a year now. in the past few months i've been able to transfer the skills i learned with atomix to turntables and i'm a pretty good dj sometimes.
I've also dabbled with FruityLoops, another great app for windows and plan on learning Reason and Logic as soon as i have the time. High school is interfereing with my serious plans, but soon i'll be moving to a very chilling, very blazing school where the work will be eeeeasy so i'll have more time to devote to the new music

I haven't yet compiled any of the sound apps mentioned, and my computer's being very finicky lately with the random crashes and whatnot. In the process of moving to my new home I'll clean out all the dust in my computer cage and place it in a more well circulated area. Untill then I'll try to compile some apps and try it out. What i'm looking for ATM is mostly live MP3 mixing and Step/Drum sequencers w/playlist/arrangement editor. As my technical skill progresses, so will my hardware collection and preference in software. I plan on aquiring a high-quality digital MIDI drumkit at some point in the near future as well as turntables and a keyboard.

I'm working towards the progression of Jungle and Drum n Bass as well as breaks and goa trance/psytrance. My aim is to smash each of these genres into a million tiny pieces and sloppily glue them back together into new and frightening soundforms. Are there any Sample/Drumsound producers in LinuxLand who want to help out??? send me an email and we can discuss the future of our music!!!

happy listening!!!

Did anything ever happen to the promotional CD concept that folks were talking about making when this all got started a year ago?

CVS Ebuilds by policy aren't allowed in portage if i understand properly. Go on over to breakmygentoo.net, read our new policies on ebuilds, and then submit to bugs.breakmygentoo.net. Be sure to read the policies....they now determine whether we will put your ebuild on the public site.

Did anyone ever do the how to that was talked about earlier?

I am a musician - but haven't done any computer recording since moving to linux a few years ago...

Also - I can't get jack started. I installed from CVS and I get the following when I run it as root:

Code:
 jackd -d alsa -d hw:0
jackd 0.78.2
Copyright 2001-2003 Paul Davis and others.
jackd comes with ABSOLUTELY NO WARRANTY
This is free software, and you are welcome to redistribute it
under certain conditions; see the file COPYING for details

JACK compiled with System V SHM support
loading driver ..
creating alsa driver ... hw:0|hw:0|1024|2|48000|nomon|swmeter|rt
open
ALSA: cannot set number of periods to 2 for capture
ALSA: cannot configure capture channel
starting engine
engine driver not set; cannot start
cannot start main JACK thread
jack main caught signal 15
received signal 11 during shutdown (ignored)


Any clues? Also - I read that people are supposed to run this as a normal user - any hints on how that's done?

I'm also a musician, guitarist/keyboardist with tendencies to basically play whatever else I need to. Just starting into the whole computer-DIY-recording thing and thus I'm dual-booting with WinXP.. I also have a WinXP virtual machine with VMware but I can't see MIDI working too well with that. I'd love for some real good multitracking software to come out of the free software community, I'd help coding it where I could, too...

ive been writing electronica for about a year now
i mainly use sonic foundry acid 4.0 in windows (mainly for its nice beat chopping facility), but i also use cubase sometimes
i dont really stick to one app, i use whatever gives me the sound i want
its a shame thre arent really any apps like this for linux
i doubt it'll be easy setting up my usb synth either, hehe
i play drums and i bought a bass a couple of days ago.. i record drums through my audigy 2 plat ex and plug my bass in a line-in until i get an amp - so im pretty much dependant on windows for my musical needs right now

What is everyone running who is happy with the performance of JACK/Ardour? Actually, I love the ardour application, but I consistantly get XRUNs when running with a low latency (-n 4 -p 128) :cry:.

When I run a higher latency (-n 16 -p 512) I get XRUNs a lot less frequently (hardly ever I think), but I am not happy with trying to record at that latency (it gets a little hard to keep time when you have to anticipate the beat by fractions of a second).

Anyway, I was running the gaming-sources and it wasn't really doing the trick, so I went up to 2.6 mm sources, but I couldn't find the low latency option in menuconfig.

I am going to try the ck-sources and gentoo-sources later this week. Anyway, I won't be happy if I have to move back to ProTools....

Any configuration suggestions to try out?

Hi,

I had problems with ck-2.4.20 kernel sources (X crashed during heavy disk access), but with ck-2.4.22, it is completelly rock solid. These sources have pre-emptive kernel and low-latency scheduling patches applied. Can't comment on jack performance because I haven't used it in quite some time.

I tried to get the ck-sources last night, but I got a compilation failure (probably somthing I mucked up in menuconfig) so I just went to bed. Anyone know if the 2.6 kernel has the Low Latency and Preemptive patches merged as one? If not, has anyone seen any low latency patches for the 2.6 yet?

I'm _still_ waiting for a realtime guitar effects processor for Linux that actually works. I've found two so far which are subpar at best. I just realised the other day how long its been since I've played and the reason I haven't played is because there are no Linux apps worth using. I used to just plug my guitar into my soundcard and jam for hours just because it was fun to make noise. I miss that. :(
