Hi all,

I think it's really interesting to learn about people's different workflows, especially in more professional settings like in this case.

I guess it would also be nice to know what people might like in terms of more 'sequencer' related features. For me Rosegarden has always been primarily a sequencer with lots of really cool 'bonus' so to say features. For instance, I think Rosegarden's notation support is fantastis (I'm thinking primarily of composition, but its export to Lilypond is also really nice).

Honestly I have never used the audio features that much, but that's because my Linux set-ups are always very modular and I try to focus on different parts. i.e. I mostly use Ardour for audio and if needed I sync with jack transport.

IIRC the LV2 (and plugins) issues has often come up with new or 'wannabe' Rosegarden users, but if the real user community doesn't see it as a priority, personally I can live with a no-plugins Rosegarden... For instance when composing with Yoshimi my workflow is exactly like Will's: rosegarden connected to Yoshimi via alsa-midi and saving Rosegarden file and yoshmi states, the only difference is that for the final 'master' I use mhwaveeditor which is a rather minimalistic single-file wave editor and works very well with jack, I will then just touch the global volume do a fade-out adjustment and that's it.

As some people maybe know I even did an entire feature film original soundtrack entirely with Rosegarden + a bunch of stand-alone synths including Yoshimi (85%), fluidsynth, hexter, linuxsampler. jack transport with xjadeo was a key feature to sync with the video and other probably mostly unknown Rosegarden features such as the ability to have the start of a piece _after_ measure 1.

I _did_ miss because of time constraints and length of music a way to 'render' stuff directly to an audio file without having to 'record' it. If you think about it, it doesn't really make much sense unless you are doing something interactive or live to have to manually 'record' stuff digitally :)

Sorry for the long email, we are locked at home here in Italy and maybe more prone to techno-philosophical thoughts :D

Lorenzo.

Yeah, I do something similar.  I record the raw audio tracks with Rosegarden
and then when I have all the tracks (and then some), I pull them into
Audacity for editing, mixing, and processing.  Outputs are usually stereo,
5.1, and 7.1 flac files to be merged with video.

I use a Linux cluster and quite a bit of external MIDI gear.  Jack, MIDI,
and Netjack interfacing are important to my uses.


Just adding my take on the audio front.

I frequently collaborate with people who send me audio guitar and/or vocal
tracks. I load these into Rosegarden, then produce MIDI tracks to make my
additions. On very rare occasion I'll do some processing of the audio with
plugins in Rosegarden, but I prefer to pre-process externally, usually
with Audacity.

Once I have a project complete, I'll then play the audio from Rosegarden
into
Audacity in parallel with audio from Yoshimi to produce the complete
stereo
track. Finally, in Audacity, I'll trim start and end, and maybe run the
fast
lookahead limiter and set the overall level.

For anyone interested below is a typical example from some years back.
Vocal and
guitar is from Ged, the rest is Yoshimi.

Say you have a poem and I have a tune.
Exchange them and we can both have a poem, a tune, and a song.
