You suggested mwaveedit and, as I'm rather new, I loaded it using
synaptic (ubuntu Karmic 9.10) it installed without problems and it
loaded rather fast.
However, my first impression is that for the task I want to perform
mixing 4 tracks recorded from 2 piano's,(2 recorded with 2 microphones
and 2 from the output of an E-piano), the view of qtractor where all
channels can be combined together is easier than 4 separate windows,
although it seems much easier to change the presentation of each
channel individually in mwaveedit.
Primarily I'm musician (former computer-'expert', programming in
various languages) and not at all familiar with the 'language' used in
the digital audio world. So I have to get to know what the LADSPA
filternames mean as the names has no meaning to me. But at the moment my
most pressing problem is the fact that I get lots of XRUN errors which
clip the sound so a notmal mix cannot be made. I cannot understand why
this should happen as I have an AMD Phenom II (4-core) processor so I
assume more than sufficient computing power: I have it as well in
qtractor as in mwaveedit.
If somebody can give some clues what to change I would be very grateful.
I use the plain Karmic kernel with no extra sound modules. Stopping
pulsaudio (pulseaudio -k) doesn't make any difference.
