Q: why do you care so much about the economics and politics of music production?

A: because it's gamed to disadvantage anybody but cishet white dudes with money

Promotion - Poise Under Chaos preview 

Just getting started, but coming along well so far

I want to see people wearing this on their back, with cables running to their glasses.

For sale, music creation, synth 

Before I put it on eBay: Korg wavestate synth for sale, in fantastic condition, with original box and manual. AUD$600 plus delivery.

Looking for technical help recovering files from an SD card (using computer with Ubuntu) 

So today I was copying some sound files that I recorded on a Zoom H1 from a micro-SD in an adapter to my computer. My SD reader had some problems with that adapter before, and this time it lost the connection during copying.

So I connected the H1 with a cable by USB, to my horror two of the files were now, although still named as .WAV, apparently text files of 0 bytes size. When I look at the used space on the card, I see that the 700mb space they take up is still being taken up, so they must somehow still be there.

Is there some program or method that can help me recover them on Ubuntu? I have tried to install "PhotoRec" but couldn't get it to work yet.

Would be grateful for any tips. One of the files is kind of important, luckily I had two mics on the interview so its not the end of the world, but there's some wind on the other mic so I'd really like to recover this file.

Boosts also welcome.

Has Teenage Engineering released a $10,000 air fryer yet

Oh, to clarify: not just VoiceLive, all the TC Helicon stuff as well. Like a Mic Mechanic, or any of the various vocal-focused pedals they've made over the years, as long as it has a lot of boost.

Also, using a clean gain piugin along with ok sounding compression works as well. The risk of things not sounding that good is real, but that's another approach.

In any case, just sharing some stuff, while dealing with a thing.

It's bugged me for years that most (all?) audio interfaces that are primarily that, and not mic pres that are also audio interfaces, don't have much in the way of signal boost to them. "No audible vocals for you, bucko! Only normalizers for ye."

It seems like an obvious way to make a lot of people happy, but *shrugs* what can you do.

Show thread

Some of them function better than others, so you might want to do some research first -- but other than that, they've come in handy when nothing else worked, and I didn't want to spend money on a good pre (which is $$ and up), or take a risk that a cheaper one isn't crap.

Show thread

Hey, here's a thing: if you need a mic pre for vocals, there's a whole range of used VoiceLive hardware out there these days. i've had both a cheap one and a pricey one, and they both work well for that task (and other things as well.)
