More linux users are having success running the free Spitfire sample player content with their LABS plugin, so I tried again, and had some success. The proper paths and content are there in my wine 5.12 folder, but an error pops up anyway, but it's easy enough to get around, and a 'fix it' button is on the gui to help. The free sounds are nice, i used the 'Guitar Harmonics Plucks' sound, and will easily find a place for it in recordings. I'll try it in wine 6.x on the weekend, as a ton of improvements came forth after the wine 5.1 series. :hyper:

I have the M1 and Wavestation legacy bundle from Korg, but I want to use it in linux. They changed from user.net korg to something else and I got the migration details and download email to download them again from their new website. But somehow the downloaded software won't start in wine at all for install. Anyone here who has the same prob?

I got an update to M1 V2.x a while back, and can run M1 in demo mode in Ubuntu Studio, but the reg system claims it can't find the internet on my computer :dog: You can register a wine bugzilla account to report wine errors, but even that is not a finely tuned machine. Triton demo also runs, but pops an error up: 'missing pcma' yet another :dog:

Maybe the folks who coded the Korg shop where I bought the M1
using the internet on the very same computer, should be offered
a bonus to fix the registration system :hyper: I would have bought
their Wavestation also, if there was hope that I could register it.
There is someone who registered M1 V 1.7, so there are no doubt
some internet oddities out there. Which U-he, IK, and NI have not been caught up in, to date.

Korg's offline reg setup was also a bit of a trainwreck, if it hasn't
already just vanished :scared: Korg: please quit hiring nieces and nephews to code things. Flawed code costs you more money in lost sales, than you save by hiring relatives. (Of course, that's just whimsical speculation on my part, but maybe picking up some of the veteran NI or Cakewalk coders who were laid off, would help?

I had the M1 v1.7 but only in mac modus, no way to get the windows version to put in wine. Shame

I found an IK Multimedia iRig HD2 guitar interface on sale, and eligible for a bundled SampleTank 5 SE, so I took a flyer, based on past experiences. The interface shows up in qjackctl, and works well as an input device. It has a volume control knob,
headphone jack, and both usb and direct-to-amp connectors.

It worked fine with Amplitube 4 and Guitar Rig 6 in Reaper/wine, and also with linux effects like Rakarrack.

It's a small lightweight plastic enclosure, so I'm going to fasten it carefully to my desk, angled to make cabling easy without undue josting/dropping/losing etc It has a small light to show it's getting some juice.

AAS has a free player that comes with 'Swatches', a 500+ presets teaser collection drawn from the many AAS soundsets. No registration is required for the swatches/player combo 8)

I think even the very choosy or genre entrenched folks will find dozens of useful and fun sounds. I also grabbed the AAS Latin Vibes collection from a sale site, probably Plugin Boutique. I had to fiddle with the registration steps, but was successful the third time. I suspect the linux users typical net setup is not always the one expected by commercial devs in the duopoly :dog:

The player has a nice preset handler, and the basic gui likely will
work in most linux setups, and not torment the cpu.

There are some fun and useful plugins among the lv2 collections soon to be available in a linux daw whose users have been asking for it for quite a while.

I put the Infamous Octolo rythmic specialist on a simple clean chain for a gated
pulsing output:

Vitaliam, I assume is the first fork of the newly open-sourced Vital wavetable synth
from Matt Tytel. It's available from Disthro, part of the falkTX software distribution,
I saw it in a synaptic upgrade, so it's probably part of the long running kx-studio repository. No problems for Reaper to drop it in the 'new' area of it's plugin list.
It was installed to /usr/lib/vst. The title reminds me of healthfood powder :dog:
But it will be cool to see how it progresses throughout the year :hyper:
Cheers

Neat! Tried a few, some UIs won't show up, but still YAY


Something else though — all my LinVST stuff won't load. Did WINE 6.3-staging break something perhaps?

Yes, 6.3 broke things, but the wine team has known for several days
and will fix it in a 6.4 release soon. People have rolled back to
wine 6 stable, with good results. If using synaptic package manager,
you can configure it by menu choice to save downloaded packages in it's
cache (/var/cache/apt/archives). And in the package install process,
you can choose to download without installing, so it's easy to collect
.deb installers that might prove valuable in the occasional regressions,
or for custom setups.

The U-he linux synths still work in 6.3, in the interim

I'll wait for 6.4 then; can't be arsed to do the rollback thing :hihi:
I can manage mostly without LinVST, but there's some Kontakt/Sampletank stuff I have no alternative for.
Also, a decent native drum synth VSTi would be nice. (Or maybe there's an LV2 thingumy I missed out on until now…)
