Yes, I will learn to use Jack "soon" and will use the videos; thanks
for making them. "learning audio", well, I've never working with audio
before other than simple analog. Don't know the jargon, don't
quite understand why I can't record over a track in Rezound like I record
over a track on tape; what's a cue used for; why isn't there pause button
on alsaplayer. But I'm learning, and using Linux audio. Where I am
now is my office/music-room that's setup for playing all the time. Our
group of players get together about once a week to play and learn play
better. Keyboard (sounds from Linux) ready 24/7; 5 good mikes, stands,
chairs and room for more. Instrument amps, congas, .... Using Rezound,
QAMix, Realplayer (alsaplayer ...) to record/playback snippets of internet
radio jazz shows to study tunes. Listening is a key to learning to play
better. I listening streaming radio most of the time I'm in the room;
listening to CJRT right now using Realplay. Rezound is ready to capture
a snippet when I want to.
Jack, Ardour recording what we play, ... comes "soon". I'm slow, you know.
