Web. But I have a script to resample to 44.1 for CD.

WAV for my own personal backups, but I post OGG's. On I like to post FLAC's.

I do 48Khz, 32-bit float-- the JACK native format.

I have a script to do the conversions for me. It forks so it is "multi-processor-friendly" for my hardware.

Not sure what this means?

Biggest problem I have is that FreeBoB currently doesn't support freewheeling mode. So, I can't use Ardour to export my sessions. I have to use jack_capture, then open the file in ReZound (which *sucks* becuase it's apparently not RT-safe), edit out the silence at beginning and end of the file, then save it.

Yeah, an audio editor for Linux which works with JACK in RT-mode. Sweep crashes jackd, audacity isn't JACK-capable, and ReZound is not RT-capable.


I haven't played wih JAMin yet but it looks very very powerful. My peices are mostly softsynth based and don't have vocals or much guitar or other live instruments. If they did, I'd probably need JAMin on the final mixes.

So far, my mixes sound good to me on my equipment and on various people's desktop PC's and laptop speakers, iPods, etc, which is where they're most likely to be listened to anyway.
