Re: [Rosegarden-user] Rosegarden App Icon

2020-05-22 Thread rhkramer
Ok, another comment about #9 (added to my previous comment about maybe 
inverting the whole thing, showing triplets (or 3 notes, maybe an eighth and 
two sixteenths and maybe staggered, ascending, or descending.

I guess I don't like the circular "buds" behind (well, currently above) the 
red roses -- I wonder what it would look like without those.

Maybe ascending, with 2 sixteenths followed by an eighth, with the stems 
underneath and a sloped "bar" (not sure of the right word for that).

Like David said, thanks for sharing (or asking for opinions)!

Top posting for variety -- not really -- this is a general comment without 
specifics. ;-)

I just realized that the icons are shown both in the upper left corner (large) 
and icon sized down in the group of icons -- I didn't really notice / look at 
those at first, and may change my opinion after spending some time looking at 
the small icons.

I always have a light background vs. a dark background, I guess I'll want to 
think about that, also.

I like option 1 best.  If the stem was bent differently then it could look
like clef, which would then suggest music.

Stay safe, and best regards,

Thanks for sharing!

Opinions by option number:

1. I like this. Clearly a rose, with the stem curling around. Doesn't
   say anything about music, though. I like #5 better.
2. Looks OK. The square frame looks like a frame rather than a rose
   stem, if it's intended to look like a rose stem.
3. Looks like 3 tulips to me, not roses. So far, I prefer the
   single-rose designs. With or without a solid background.
4. NO, just no. Not roses, looks like bars or some completely-different
   flower.
5. Interesting! Kind of an abstracted or deconstructed rose that I
   recognized right off. Adding the piano keys shows that it's a music
   program. I like this one best so far.
6. NO, no, no. Yuck. Not even close to a rose, nothing about music in it.
7. Abstracted geometric rose that seems to me to be more of a Star of
   David. Doesn't say "rose" or Rosegarden to me.
8. Even more abstracted "rose" that doesn't communicate rose,
   Rosegarden, or music to me.
9. Cute, but just, no. A couple of rosebuds, has music notes, but the
   music notes don't look particularly good to me.

I like #5 so much I just might screen grab it and use it for my 
Rosegarden icon here. Are the source files (preferably SVG) available?

  It's just a USB audio interface with an instrument level input stage. 
 No MIDI.

I was going to ask earlier, but what does a Guitar to USB cable do -- does it 
simply take the output from the guitar pick ups (analog signal) and pass it 
through to a USB -- oh, hmm, I guess USB would have to be serial, so it must 
have some conversion, or do some A/D converters (or sound cards) accept analog 
via a USB port.

Or does it magically convert the guitar signal to MIDI?

  Probably.  The active components are usually hidden in the USB end.  
It's like one of those microscopic flash drives that are so easy to  
lose.



Anybody using one of these with Rosegarden? On Linux, hopefully?


  I'm *not* using one, but some suggestions from researching these  
things in the past:


1. The cheap ones probably aren't worth it.  I wouldn't spend less  
than $50.


2. They probably all work just fine with Linux.  But to be safe, pick  
a model and check the reviews on amazon to see if anyone's tested  
that model with Linux.  A google search might turn up something as  
well. E.g. a google search on 'behringer ucg102 linux' turns up a  
link on linuxmusicians.com that talks about that one and all of the  
others working fine in Linux.


3. Consider getting one someplace you can return it easily (e.g.  
brick-and-mortar) in case you can't find reviews indicating it will  
work with Linux.  Might not be easy in the time of coronavirus.


Ted.


Thanks Ted. I was hoping to hear from somebody with an endorsement of  
something they're using with Rosegard. But barring that, I'll heed your  
advice.
