Re: [solved] setbfree as plugin in qtractor

Hi, I have another problem with setbfree in qtractor: With all other plugins, the sound cannot be heard unless I mark it with "monitor" in the mixer or I click on the track (auto monitor). The setbfree organ is "always on", to turn if off, I need to de-activate the plugin. Is thi...

Re: Behringer UM2, Guitarix and Jack

Hi,
if you have set up your soundcard correctly, the needed connections are:

System Capture 1 - gx Head in

gx Head FX 0 and 1 to system Playback 1 and 2

Guitarix also have an auto-connect feature which usually does the right thing when playing guitar solo.

Re: Worse performance when power supply plugged in!

Hi,

do you have a doc on cyclictest for audio profiling?

I have never used that, and the docs are not so simple.

Re: Standard test needed to benchmark XRUNs

Hi, this is, of course hardware-dependent, but it is usual for modern cpus. You can read that in most hardware-tests. For notebooks, testers usually make a stress test to see how long the highest frequencies can be kept, as this is highly dependent on the power of the cooling system. The turbo-boost...

Re: Standard test needed to benchmark XRUNs

cpu governor performance does not need to be the best solution. performance sets the cpu to the highest turbo-boost speed. Being turbo-boost, this is a clock speed that the cpu cannot hold for a longer time. I have tested which cpu-speed can be kept with my system for a longer time (using prime95 st...

Re: Standard test needed to benchmark XRUNs

Hi,
if the dsp load goes backwards this means (as far as I know) that the cpu changes its clock (goes higher), thus the dsp load (in percent) goes down even though the load in xruncounter goes up.
For xruncounter to make any sense you must ensure that your cpu runs at a fixed speed!

Re: QTractor: Export Channel strip

Hi, thank you, this helps (even though it is not exactly what I want). In this case, it's about guitar sounds which consist of a chain of plugins. Normally, one would use guitarix for that, but guitarix cannot be automated when used as an lv2-plugin (with a carla wrapper around). So I build my guita...

Re: Worse performance when power supply plugged in!

Thank you, too! I skipped through the article (I knew quite a bit of that before). In the article, there was a distinction between "guitarists" and "piano players". I am that in one person, and found it interesting that I still percieved latency much worse with guitar. So it is n...

QTractor: Export Channel strip

Hi,
is there a possibility to export a channel with all settings and plugins to another project in QTractor?

If, for instance, I created a nice guitar sound in one project and would like to use that in another project.

Thanks, Andreas

Re: setbfree as plugin in qtractor

I found out what happened (my mistake) : I had (in track properties) set a bank and a sound for setbfree. That was why everytime the track was loaded, this sound was set, no matter what settings I changed in setbfree. And that was why the problem did not occur in the minimal sample. Thank you for yo...

Re: setbfree as plugin in qtractor

Well, that is the way I usually add my plugins. Create a new track, go to the plugins-tab and then add my plugins. I found a workaround: If I change a setting, then de-activate the plugin and acitvate it again, the ok-button is no longer greyed out and the plugin state is saved when I hit ok (and sa...

Re: setbfree as plugin in qtractor

To clarify this: if I add the plugin, the given plugin-url is the one you gave here for the lv2 plugin.
But the plugin does have its own gui (the one that looks like a real organ).

Re: setbfree as plugin in qtractor

I am using the lv2-plugin.

QTractor version is 0.9.7.

If I, for instance, set percussion to "on", then the ok-button in qtractor plugins dialog is still greyed out. So it seems that qtractor does not notice that I have changed something in setbfree.

Thank you,
Andreas

Re: Worse performance when power supply plugged in!

I had a rehearsal last evening. This time I was there early and set up things and stuff. In the beginning, I had the occasional xrun. Later on, there weren't any more, even though I reduced the buffersize to 64 bit / 2 periods. So this confirms that not the power supply is the problem but loading th...

[unsolved again] setbfree as plugin in qtractor

Hi, I use setbfree as a plugin in qtractor. The problem: The settings are not stored. Whenever I restart qtractor setbfree is in a default-setting and I need to recall my preset manually. As there are lots of things to be set in setbfree, this is quite some problem. Does anyone know a trick or worka...
