Re: MOD Devices sponsors Linuxmusicians.com

I'm feeling pretty bad. Not because the sponsorship is so important to me per se (though I still think it's a reasonable choice), but because of the lack of support/empathy. People seem quick to judge, bicker, and tell me how I should do things differently. Not just in this thread, but others come t...

Re: MOD Devices sponsors Linuxmusicians.com

There are times where I dont check these forums very often, I think this was one of them. No problem! I definitely don't see everything either ;) Just feels to me, being the costs modest as you say, we should not sell out for pennies and get ugly advertising and promotion to companies. They have a ...

Re: MOD Devices sponsors Linuxmusicians.com

Going to be as direct as I can be here, no joke. I really hate it, and don't want to see it in things I personally use. Either that, or don't count on me moderating this forum anymore. I'm really bummed to hear this. As you well know you're one of the main driving forces behind this forum and an ex...

MOD Devices sponsors Linuxmusicians.com

Although modest, there are some costs associated with keeping this site running. Until now, I have footed this bill myself, with the help of several very generous donations by forum members. While this works, I have been reaching out to companies relevant to our community for sponsorship. The post t...

Re: Soloist with computer accompaniment

Computers/software are only as intelligent as their makers/programmers/designers. They *must* follow a logical sequence, whereas man doesn't have to. When you get into details, this is not as clear-cut as it may seem. We have a fairly good idea of how the brain works, at the "atoms-and-electri...

Re: Haven: Keep Watch - Snowden’s New App (GPLv3)

I get your point.. but.. This should never have been posted in here on a music forum. I've moved the post from "Android Audio" to "Backstage", seems to fit a little better. For me music, art, hobbies, science, programming is a "safe haven" from politics, religion, fear...

Re: Why learn music theory?

One of my friend has created something like 10 records of melodic / opera metal. Beginning of production was played with real guitar and bass, programmed synths and drums, real vocals. He says that about 5 years ago he stopped recording guitars, and started to make them with midi. He could play the...

Re: vember audio surge is now opensource

The installer oddly puts the vst2 .dll file in Program Files/Common Files/VST2, so adjust as needed for wine/linvst/airwave to find it. It claims it supports both VST2 and VST3 though, perhaps it'd be reasonable to skip the VST2 version on Linux since it's problematic anyway, and focus on VST3? Or ...

Re: Soloist with computer accompaniment

An interesting pdf artice about the use of computer intelligence to accompany, in this particular case, a soloist: here Any thoughts/reflections? I think this is super interesting, and indeed for the 'non-improvised' case that this article covers it sounds fairly doable. One consideration is that t...

Re: i guess most of them are bots

I haven't and don't plan to delete accounts that have at least 1 post in all of history. Yes, that's how I read and understood it. I wanted to say that there are sometimes personal circumstances, which is why you are not present in a forum for a longer time. OK, since you were active before you wer...

Re: i guess most of them are bots

Many forums can delete by options. I know for sure that phpbb has these kind of options in the admin. :wink: Unfortunately when the query returns too many results, the feature does nothing :( Deleted about 2000 inactive accounts, calling it a day, this is no way to spend a Sunday. You could choose ...

I would have found it a pity if I had been deleted.

Re: No access to 'Linux Powered Mobile Devices'

Super weird, I copied the permissions from another forum but apparently that didn't have the desired effect. Did it again just now and seems to have worked now... could you verify?
