I was curious if anyone actually hangs out here.

danielstockton13:02:04

Maybe there is somewhere else where overtone enthusiasts like to gather?

mozinator13:02:14

the overtone google group has the most activity

mozinator13:02:30

overtone has been losing some traction

mozinator13:02:48

I want to solve that by fixing some of the scsynth issues. First have to find some time to do it though.

mozinator14:02:08

The first thing that people run into is that (boot) crashes

danielstockton14:02:46

I have had no end of trouble getting it running on arch linux. I often find myself wanting to play with it, spend a couple of hours trying to get it to work, then give up.

danielstockton14:02:06

I guess most people use macos

mozinator14:02:29

good to hear that it works good on arch linux

mozinator14:02:36

no jack issues ?

danielstockton14:02:02

No, you misunderstood :smile: I have had it working at some point in the past but then I found it broken at a later date by some unknown update.

danielstockton14:02:52

Could be jack issues, I never find the time to properly understand the sound servers/interfaces.

mozinator14:02:54

its always tricky with linux. there are so many audio systems, so many glibc versions

danielstockton14:02:29

ALSA/jack is the setup i'm going for, I find I get general sound issues if I add pulseaudio to the mix.

mozinator14:02:11

my feeling is that overtone should be compiled with ALSA as default the ALSA library will work if pulseaudio is used

mozinator14:02:46

glad to hear that my suspicion of JACK is not based on a fantasy :wink:

mozinator14:02:02

the problem is that JACK wants absolute control over the audio device

hlolli14:02:23

there's an overtone group also in the live-coding team, at least there you'll find samaaron lurking on that channel, if he ever gets seperated from sonicpi there is to say.

hlolli14:02:41

not on clojurians

mozinator14:02:00

other slack group ?

danielstockton14:02:14

I already have so many slack groups to manage :disappointed:

hlolli14:02:29

yes, called live-coding, that overtone group is still not active and probably wont.

hlolli14:02:01

well, it's a bit active, meh.

danielstockton14:02:07

At least I know people are quietly lurking here.
