Re: Linux-based softsynths

Triceratops looks interesting, I'll have to give it a whirl.

Re: Doctor Who Title Theme cover

Love it!

Haven't missed an episode since 1974 :-) The show is 50 years old in November.

Might be a topic for a VSE competition later in the year? :-)

Re: Linux-based softsynths

The calf plugins are some of my favourites on any platform.

Sometimes I might fire up rakkarack instead (or as well!). Works great with external hardware, or with hydrogen drum sequencer.

Re: Linux-based softsynths

Yes it's pretty cool. Unfortunately I only have a low-end laptop with intel graphics, I get nothing but xruns with it.

Re: Linux-based softsynths

Just installed ardour3. Took a little while to figure out why it named all my VST plugins "stephen", but I soon fixed that by copying them to /usr/lib/vst and exporting LXVST_PATH. I normally keep my VSTs in ~/.vst Renoise doesn't yet support LV2, so it was good to fire up the calf plugins in ardour...

Re: Linux-based softsynths

I'd love to see more linux synths available. But what I find amusing is that when I went back to windows I was looking forward to the huge range of VSTs. Most of the freebies ended up being a waste of time, and most of the commercial ones were outside my price range. I'd spend all my time messing ar...

Re: Linux-based softsynths

And my only gripe with renoise is that it currently doesn't support LV2.... but I'm sure it will at some point.

The calf plugins are some of my favourites on any platform. I use them in qtractor.

Re: Linux-based softsynths

Yep, another linux renoiser here. I use it alongside Loomer Aspect, and zynaddsubfx is a great source of sounds for building instruments. And yes I do like amsynth too - nice to see it is still going strong (I'm also a linuxmusicians.com lurker ;-) ) I'm looking forward to seeing Loomer Epoch - wiri...

It's apocalypse proof. You can burn it for heat. Hopefully we won't need a Geiger counter to verify its safety. :lol:
It should have a geiger counter effect. Called Geigerizer. Or Kraftotron.

Re: iPad vs Android tablets

I think for music, ipad wins easily. Better instruments, low latency, more choice, etc. But for general use I prefer android. I sold my ipad to get a Nexus 7, no regrets. I *do* regret selling other things to fund the ipad in the first place.... I just didn't get along with it, both with instruments...

Re: Aalto on sale!

I'm in the market for a couple of decent quality softsynths so I'll check the demo. I'm also looking at Zebra and Dark Zebra...

Mind you I'm starting to see ads for minibrute, only £384... choices choices!
