Not bad at all! Fedora 19 is an awesome release... I upgraded via yum
from F17 (since F18 didn't really go over very well). For me, this seems
like the least quirky and most reliable release since F13.
Its very quiet on this list at the moment, so tell us what you've
doing with music! Fedora / Linux / recording etc etc
It's always quiet on the list. Good idea to start up discussion about,
you know, music!
Me, I've been trying to organize my many samples into sfz format
use. Also found new interest in guitar (my new schecter rocks!)
Samples of what?
I'm no drummer, but have been studying drumming a lot lately to
some triggered recordings. Would love to hear other peoples experience
in this area.
How are you "studying?" Are you taking lessons?
My current musical projects:
1.) Two "major research papers" toward the completion of my MA... almost
2.) Rewriting---yet again---a music analysis program that's part of a
relatively large research project at McGill/Yale/MIT/Aberdeen/BBC. I'll
write more about this in the (sort of) near future.
3.) Overhauling my website. I've decided it's not helping anybody that
my work isn't available anywhere, and although I wouldn't say that any
of my work is particularly valuable, it might be just the thing somebody
else is looking for.
4.) Making an SFZ file for the University of Iowa B-flat clarinet
samples, which I'll use along with the "Sonatina Symphonic Orchestra"
samples (for other instruments) in the next project.
5.) Synthesizing the start of the second movement of Brahms' third
symphony with Qtractor (and others), just to see how well it sounds with
FOSS software. With Vienna Symphonic Orchestra samples, frankly, it just
doesn't sound real.
6.) "Recomposing" that same symphony, based on contrapuntal analysis
results from the software in point (2) above, using SuperCollider.
7.) Learning Bach's BWV 857 prelude and fugue (F minor, Book 1 of
Well-Tempered Clavier), to prove that I can. Considering I don't even
really play piano, this was a bad idea, but now that I'm almost
finished, I can't give up.
That's it. Keep sharing, everybody! Do you have recordings of what
you're doing or have already done?
