OK Fediverse, I want to get back into some music production (first time since my transition to Linux 12 years ago). Every time I get to the point of wanting to try something the big stumbling block is JACK. Anyone have good tutorials they recommend on JACK?

@cobra2 Holy Frijoles, I can't believe I didn't already think of that! Of course @klaatu already has it laid out.

@thaj
I use Qjackctl for controlling JACK. Makes it easier. Also, you need to make some changes to /etc/security/limits.conf and add yourself to the group that has increased limits

@claudiom @thaj

I see ClaudioM was a bit nicer and didn't say rtfm right off the bat.

@randynose @cobra2 @claudiom Regardless of whether he did or not since I didn't think of someone having written it up, it was still helpful.

@cobra2
Lots of good info there. Favorited for future reference. 👍

@claudiom @randynose @thaj
That's the book by the masterful @klaatu


he needs a donation page or something.
@claudiom @randynose @thaj @klaatu

i know.... even if he had a donation page it would redirect to other FOSS projects.... it's more of just a method to show appreciation.

@cobra2 Good idea. As I work to restructure my sites, I'll try to remember to do just that. A donation-redirect from Slackermedia to Slackware is a great idea.

@klaatu while you restructure, remove links that you don't own anymore.

Also.... Ansible.

@cobra2 I should elaborate on my request for elaboration: I understand what you mean by removing links I don't own, but I'm wondering if you have anything I've missed in mind?

And yeah, what about Ansible?

@klaatu

It is not yours anymore.


Ansible,
Setup your nginx configs for servers and specific configs in ansible. So that you can migrate from one backend/OS to another easily.

@cobra2 @thaj @randynose @claudiom I just re-read my docs for QA, and I support cobra2's recommendation: my docs are indeed worth reading.

Read the JACK section first to understand JACK itself, then take a look at the QJackCtl section slackermedia.info/handbook/dok for a better understanding of the most common (but not ONLY) frontend. Patchage is also worth looking at. That's how I run it, these days: JACK2 in a terminal, and Patchage for quick routing.

@cobra2 @thaj @claudiom

Ah... Man. You're such a hardass! 😜

You're right. Claudio is just too nice of a guy.
