dca_hi. good day. i have ubuntu studio 13.04 beta on a Toshiba Satellite P870. with Jack, I get xruns at anything less than 256 frames/period (Sample Rate: 48000, Periods/Buffer: 3). Its a decently-specified machine (i7, 16Gb RAM, 1Tb HD, etc), bought two weeks go. But I'm getting better performance from less well-specified, older machines. Any suggestions appreciated.05:08

smartboyhw_Hello ayc.15:52
aychello smart... please, help me with this15:52
ayci cant see hardware configuration tool15:52
holsteinayc: what are you trying to configure?15:52
smartboyhw_ayc: Which tool?15:53
* smartboyhw_ embraces our support guru holstein:)15:53
ayci want to see which drivers i have installed... and to configure my sound card15:53
holsteinayc: you shouldnt need to configure your sound card, or much of aything15:53
ayci havent sound15:54
holsteinayc: typically, if things can be supported, they are supported "out of the box"15:54
ubottuIf you're having problems with sound, click the Volume applet, then Sound Preferences, and check your Volume, Hardware, Input, and Output settings.  If that fails, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Sound - https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SoundTroubleshooting - http://alsa.opensrc.org/DmixPlugin - For playing audio files,  see !players and !mp3.15:54
ayci have m.audio fast track usb15:54
holsteinayc: what would i do? disable the onboard audio device (if any) then the only audio device will be the fast track15:54
holsteini would use pavucontrol to control the device with pulse15:55
ubottuFor information on professional audio tools in Ubuntu, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UbuntuStudio/ProAudioIntro15:55
ayci have to disable it from bios?15:55
holstein^^ i would refer to that if i wanted to set the fast track up to be used with JACK15:55
holsteinayc: i suggest that.. you dont have to15:55
holsteinayc: i suggest that because it will make things easier for you.. having only one audio device to work with15:56
ayci will try15:56
aycbut, in ubuntu studio, i can't have the "hardware configuration tool" linke in ubuntu?15:56
smartboyhw_ayc: What tool specifically!?15:57
holsteinayc: sure.. what tool are you looking for? also, keep in mind, ubuntustudio is for creating content, so our tools are geared to that15:57
smartboyhw_holstein: Will you be sure on 25/4 around 14:30- 17:00 UTC15:58
smartboyhw_In this channel15:58
aycok, but is a place to view any drivers that i have installed? (for example, i use RAID, high current USB 3.0, drawing pad)15:59
ayci dont know if im using my usb with all their capabilities...15:59
holsteinayc: there are many tools and places.. what are you looking for?15:59
holsteinayc: as i said, if things can be supported, they usually are15:59
holsteinayc: ubuntustudio *is* ubuntu.. so that means, any tool you want is available... also, the hardware support is the same16:00
holsteinayc: when i open a terminal and run "lspci -vv" i get all the information i need.. is that what you are looking for?16:01
aycok, but in a lot of webs, talks about "hardware configuration tool", in System / preferences menu16:01
aycwait, i will try16:01
holsteinayc: what tool.. share a link and i'll help you find it16:01
holsteinayc: as i said, there are many tools for configuring16:01
aycit was good... is there an app that shows me the same info, by graphically?16:04
holsteinayc: there are many.. what are you looking for?16:05
aycan application to see and configure all "lspci" shows, and more16:06
aycall "hardware" relative information16:06
holsteinayc: you can always open the package manager of your choice and search for system info tools.. as i said, there are many16:06
aycsoyy, im using a spanish version.... where are the package manager?16:08
holsteinayc: there are a few of those as well.. i like synaptic but i usually use the command line16:08
aycah, ok... now i know what are u talking about16:09
aycthanks a lot!!16:09
holsteinayc: anytime.. also check #opensourcemusicians ...several of those audio devices there16:09

aycthanks again holstein!!!16:12
ayci have downloaded some apps16:13
aycthat arent in package16:13
holsteinayc: from where? and why?16:13
aycfor example, OppenOffice16:13
holsteinayc: you want libreoffice.. its in the repos16:13
holsteinsudo apt-get install libreoffice16:13
holstein!info libreoffice16:14
ubottulibreoffice (source: libreoffice): office productivity suite (metapackage). In component universe, is optional. Version 1:3.6.2~rc2-0ubuntu4 (quantal), package size 29 kB, installed size 166 kB16:14
ayclibreoffice <> openoffice16:14
holsteinayc: libreoffice is the modern fork of openoffice.. you dont need to download it.. you just use a package manager and install libreoffice16:14
holsteinayc: for the most part, you want to install from the repos.. you shouldnt need to download anything from anywhere else16:16
ayci come from W, and some terms arent familiar for me... when i put "sudo apt-get install libreoffice"...  from where "comes" the "libreoffice"???16:16
aycwhere is the repository?16:16
holsteinayc: the official ubuntu repositories16:16
holsteinayc: the place where your upgrades come from.. where all the packages are stored, and maintained for you16:17
aycok, synaptic or gdebi?16:17
aycthese are the rep?16:17
holsteinayc: doesnt matter.. those are package managers16:17
holsteinayc: synaptic allows you to install from your sources16:18
smartboyhw_ayc: Why do you prefer OpenOffice over LibreOffice?16:18
ayci don't only want to know how to do the things, i want to know how the linux works too16:18
holsteinfor example, to over simplify the process.. when a new firefox comes out for example, the ubuntu team would package it and put it in the official repos.. you upgrade and it comes in automaticallly.. and its been tested to work16:18
holsteinayc: the "linux" is just the kernel16:19
aycthere are a lot of things to learn!!!16:19
ayci have to go, thanks a lot to all of you,16:19
holsteinsmartboyhw_: i dont think ayc prefers it.. i think ayc was unaware that libreoffice was the lates version16:19
smartboyhw_ayc: Sure it takes a new user years to learn Linux:)16:19
smartboyhw_holstein: :(16:19
holsteinits not clear that libreoffice is the latest version, really16:20
smartboyhw_bye ayc;)16:20

Jasper_Good evening17:01
thebishophi everyone18:25
contrapunctusHey, thebishop o.o18:33
thebishopi'm getting back into linux audio after a few months off.  are there any hot new projects i should try?  i'm especially interested in options for recording with loops (already have sooperlooper)18:46
holsteinthebishop: sooperlooper is arguably the best, and probably most actively developed18:49
thebishopholstein, yeah, it's a great piece of software, but i've had mixed results running it with a synchronized tempo18:49
thebishopin the past, it's worked well unless the tempo changed18:50
holsteinsync it to an external source18:50
thebishopyeah that's what i've done18:50
holsteinif its not syncing, then, its not syncing18:50
thebishopalso, and this may just be a limitation of midi, but there doesn't seem to be a way to stop a loop by holding in a midi control18:50
holsteinthere wont be anything better at that18:50
holsteinthebishop: you can map whatever you want to whatever you want in sooperlooper18:51
thebishopi have to have a separate record/overdub, and pause assignment18:51
holsteinmidi, keyboard shortcuts.. you can stop, start.. whatever you like18:51
thebishopholstein, i know, but there doesn't seem to be a concept of 'hold'18:51
holsteinthebishop: what are you wanting to hold?18:51
thebishopat least there wasn't 9 months ago18:51
holsteinyou can stop18:51
thebishopholstein, i have a behringer FCB1010 footswitch18:51
holsteinso, you map something to stop18:51
thebishopi'd like to have tap to record/overdub, hold to stop18:52
holsteinyou can just hit a button, and stop18:52
thebishopusing twice as many inputs18:52
holsteinyou can ask pipemanmusic in #opensourcemusicians18:52
holsteinhe just got that pedal18:52
holsteinanyways.. im out for a bit18:52
thebishopalright thanks man18:52
