Here’s a pretty 90s sounding ambient song that I could see in an old top down RPG in some exotic land. I composed the track in Rosegarden and used the Qsynth/Fluidsynth soundfont player for sounds. The soundfont is of a Kawai K1 Synthesizer. Dedicated to Fornax Void.
I used these tutorials for learning how to create a soundfount in Linux enabling my MPD 24 to work great with Linux and Jack! Thanks so much to Linux Music for making these!
If you’re looking for a great ableton drum rack replacement that is open source, this will do the trick!
This tutorial if for those who want to record music in Linux, but are having problems with Ardour3, or more precisely, the Jack Audio Connection Kit. In this tutorial I’m using the wonderful Elementary OS https://elementary.io/. But this should work in Ubuntu as well.
Jack nearly never works when first installed, hopefully this tutorial will change that for you. If you have any trouble or questions, feel free to leave a comment below.
