Ecasound – A Text-Based DAW for Linux!

Why would you want to use a text-based DAW? Well, why not? Plus it runs great on old computers. In this video I show you how to record using this awesome program.

If you have a very low powered PC or just like being a super nerd, Ecasound is one amazing DAW that runs 100% in the Linux command line interface! To install Ecasound just sudo apt install ecasound, and the best place to learn how to use it is here http://bit.ly/2WDs120. See my guide on getting Lubuntu to run on an iBook G4 here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pyuZhuqfQuI. In this video I show how to write chain setup files, then use them in Ecasound to record live audio and internal audio within Jack. Ecasound home page https://ecasound.seul.org/ecasound/
Let me know what you guys think about this software! I love it!

Sample Vinyl, Then Play It With A Pad Controller In Linux with Audacity and Reaper

In this tutorial I’ll show you how to rip some samples from vinyl in Audacity, then assign them to your pad controller in Reaper all within Linux! You could however still do this same technique on mac or windows! Pick up an Akai MPD here https://amzn.to/2UsheXV and get the Reaper Pad Controller Template here http://bit.ly/2tFGApx.

Make an Ableton Style Drum Rack In Reaper (WORKS IN LINUX!)

I went searching for a way to make an Ableton style  drum rack in Linux and found this awesome idea which of course uses the amazing Reaper! I’ve tested it in Lubuntu 18.10 and works great on the Linux Native version. Drag and drop samples work fine too!

Linux 4.18 Arrives With Some Big Changes!


Following a number of delays, Linus Torvalds has finally announced release of a Linux 4.18, the latest stable release of the Linux kernel.

Announcing the arrival of Linux 4.18 on the Linux Kernel Mailing List (LKML), Linus Torvalds writes:

“One week late(r) and here we are – 4.18 is out there. It was a very calm week, and arguably I could just have released on schedule last week, but we did have some minor updates.”

 

In development since June, the Linux 4.18 cycle has taken a little longer to fully form that anticipated, but with a decent change-log attached, I’m sure most won’t mind.

Linux 4.18 is also lighter than previous releases, with nearly 100k fewer lines of (obsolete) code than Linux 4.17.
