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.

Introducing The Macintosh SE/30 Raspberry Pi

This is a project I’ve wanted to do for a long time, and I finally did it and decided to make a youtube vid about it. I took an old Mac SE30 case and built an all in 1 Raspberry Pi DAW computer into it. I really think it came out fantastically well and wanted to share my tips in making one for your self. Thanks for watching and please watch more of my videos!

Here’s all the links to buy everything talked about in the vid:

Ubuntu 17.10 released and waves goodbye to Unity Desktop!

Ubuntu just announced their new release, 17.10 and it is using Gnome as it’s default Desktop Manager. This is a big change since Ubuntu has been using Unity as its default DE for many years now.

This will come as a welcome change to a lot of people since Unity really wasn’t getting much love from the masses. I personally never hated Unity, I just don’t use it. But I don’t use Gnome either. I use IceWM. I’m still waiting for my “Icebuntu” release, haha.

Anyway, I’m curious if any of my readers have tried it yet, and if so what are your thoughts?
