Recording sound in Linux Mint

Postby badmotor » Tue Jun 10, 2008 10:41 pm

Is anyone using Mint to do any recording? I have installed Ardour and opened up an old project that I recorded on Ubuntu, and there is lots of crackling and bad sound. Did plenty of research into configuring Jack and setting up Ardour - still no difference.

I'm hoping I don't need to use a real-time kernel, otherwise I imagine that wouldn't work in Mint so well. I recorded this project on Ubuntu Hardy, so it would have the same kernel anyway? Should be fine.... I don't get.

I love Mint to pieces, and don't want to have to get another machine to throw Ubuntu Studio on. I only use Ardour/Audacity/Hydrogen anyway. :|

I've only did audio recording in Audacity in LM 5, and that works fine.
The topic of a "studio" version of Linux Mint has been discussed lately, I believe that you would have to install the "low-latence" kernell and in LM 4 it borked the system, so if that's important, you may want to try Ubuntu Studio or Dynebolic...

Hi Zwopper, I don't suppose you could clear something up for me - I just tried running the Dynebolic live cd for the first time, and it asked me for a password.... I never set one up? It means I can't carry on!

i looked in the online manual, but couldn't find an answer - I'm sure I'm missing something obvious here.
