Anyone interested in Open Source music production? If there's an interest, I could put together some stuff around LMMS, and other open source audio production applications.

Oooh this is great.  I love this idea about music production.  Unfortunately I will not be able to make it Wednesday.

Haven't heard of chuck specifically, but I was planning to talk about faust, which is a similar concept.

What is LMMS? Is there a link I can learn from?

LMMS is a MIDI/audio DAW similar to Fruity Loops. If you're running
Linux it should be installable via the distro's package manager.

I've got my own little package, MIDI only, written using Qt & C++,
supporting ALSA, JACK, and Windows MultiMedia.

Now if I could only afford a Korg :-D

What's good software for music remixing?

On Linux, my guess would be Ardour: https://ardour.org/

It also runs on Windows.

Another would be Bitwig: https://www.bitwig.com/ but it is not free.

If you're using Linux, check out a fellow name Unfa on YouTube.

Remixing could be any number of programs. Ardour and LMMS are "Digital Audio Workstations", meaning that they can have MIDI devices (think Keyboards and controllers) integrated with software synths, soundfonts, VST plugins, etc...

For multi-track audio recording/mixing, Audacity was the "gold standard" until it went commercial and the open source fork "Tenacity" is basically the new replacement.

Remixing might also include using tools to remove backing vocals or background music so that you can add new layers/tracks alongside, and that can be done with plugins or Tenacity. There are also some (early) real-time tools for that as well.

Chuck looks really cool. Is there a library of content made with it anywhere?

lastly - https://soundlab.cs.princeton.edu/listen/

it's not clear if all those sounds are from chuck.

FYI, here's what I am thinking I could show and anyone who is interested could add more:

  • LMMS - Linux MultiMedia System - DAW (Digital Audio Workstation)
    • MIDI Connectivity with my Korg KONTROL 49
    • Pro Audio with my Behringer X1204 Mixer/USB Audio Controller
    • Compressor Mic
  • Ardour - DAW
  • Faust - Music Programming Language
  • Rosegarden - Basic DAW and Music Authoring
  • Tenacity - Multi-track recording, editing, mixing, and effects
  • Pipewire - PipeWire is a server and user space API to deal with multimedia pipelines, Jack
  • JACK - is a professional sound server API and pair of daemon implementations to provide real-time, low-latency connections for both audio and MIDI data
Cheers,

Deven

Hmmm, used Audacity, didn't know it went rogue. Will investigate! Thanks!

I could add a bit about Csound and Cabbage.

Csound is a synthesis and DSP language, and Cabbage lets you make GUIs for Csound effects and synths as standalone apps and DAW plugins.

Hi all,

I have been working on mlperf for the last couple of months, so besides digital audio, if anyone is interested in machine learning performance evaluation, I can put up a demo and a few slides for a quick demonstration. :)

thanks so much for providing those slides - i can't believe i had to miss that to get my car up to be serviced before 9p.

will definitely try to install pieces of CSound and see what i get.

Deven - thanks for hauling all your stuff in and doing such a fun show and tell - really learned a lot about sound and music in the Linux environment.  i won't feel as lost as i usually do when trying to do anything related to sound.
