Re: is smoking in a room bad for the output of a synth

Tar can sound exist of what some ones perception of what tar sounds like. Unless your are a Linux/Unix geek. Any hoo. On smoking by your synths or in a room enclosed while you smoke. For one, a burn on the keys puts a damper on the value of the synth or gear. Equipment smelling like tobacco or weed ...

Yet, that monster can still pack a punch. Thus getting to my next subject. Name some of songs with the ...

I think it is Ubies Studio that is the problem. I got Jack to link up with Zynn and the midi trigger is just bad. So I DL S64 live cd and I am damn impressed. After getting the sound debug and going. It works like a champ. There are soft synths that I could not get working with Ubie and works fine w...

I think it is Ubies Studio causing problems. Jackd is not working 100%, however I can make the link from the midisport to Zyn. Yet, the delay trigger is really bad and endless looping. I tested out Studio 64, if I can get sound to work with my SB live. I'll be set. I ran the live CD of S64 and looks...

I'll try what you said and reply back. Midisport driver is installed and I did some research and there is a bug with Rosegarden with Zyn running Ubuntu. The looping and trigger delays. At least Midisport was in Synaptic and Ubies repos.

Midi ZynAddSubFX

I went and got a Midisport Uno and got it working just fine running Ubuntu Linux O/S. Ya Linux! Any ways, I cannot seem to get Zyn to trigger. I can get it to trigger if I have Rosegarden running, but the trigger speed is poor and it the sound will loop. I would like to by pass Rosegarden and just p...

Open Suse is great O/S. I have 10.1 installed on a other box. I will have to check out some the programs you listed. I do love Hydrogen. You are 100% correct on that tasty program. I am thinking about putting realtime kernel on my Ubie. It is unstable and do not want to jack my ubie box.

I tried using Ams and it works some times. It is a poor design soft modulator synth. Qsynth reminds of PAiA.

Most linux distro's like Ubuntu and Musix have a Live/install CD and you do not need to install it. Just have the CD rom to boot first. The live CD runs slower than being on the HD. At least you can test drive before installing.

I agree with ryryoftokyo. There is so many synths out there and it can be mind boggling on what to get. Mainly on what type of style of music or sound you are going for? Name some bands is a good start. There is oodles of people here that can name that synth off a band.
