By the way, I currently have a couple of hours a week to spend on this project (that's why progress is slow, but progress is there.) I'm still stuck on Buzz to make music, but I'd like to use Buzztrax as my go-to music program since I'm tired of going to Windows, and I want to be able to tinker with the source. I also want a free software program to recommend to people who ask me how they should start making music. I'm happy to take guidance from you as to how you'd like to make use of this time!
I'm an experienced C++ dev but have been away from C for a long time, audio/DSP amateur, total GTK novice. I've been in GC-land for many years now, so memory management is quite rusty. Thanks for your patience in helping me get to grips with GTK and the project's coding style.
I miss Linux. As soon as I'm back on Linux, Buzztrax will be one of the first things to get installed. I plan to buy a new Linux workstation very soon . Can't wait! I'm really glad such a program as Buzztrax exists, and is open source on top of it.
I sold my devices when I needed cash, living barely by my means (which was fun), and then I got a job and work has given me MacBooks. But the latest MacBooks are so far impossible to install Linux on, due to the new Apple T2 security module. There's nothing on ArchLinux on how to get passed that yet.
ZBook Studio x360 G5 with Intel® Core™ i9-8950HK processor (2.9 GHz, up to 4.8 GHz with Turbo Boost, 12 MB cache, 6 core) + NVIDIA® Quadro® P2000 (4 GB GDDR5 dedicated) (5SJ36AV), with selected 64GB RAM, and 4k "DreamColor" display. This one, after configuration.
Right laptop. I not sure whats the situation with the new Ryzen CPU and the new Navi GPUs for laptops. I just brought a new desktop, so that my kids can play the latest games. Steam works better on linux every day :)
Huh! Been a while since I tried Steam, back in the day when I was playing Day of Defeat (Half Life mod).
4GB GPU mem is okay for everything but games
Yeah, but still like having 6 integrated intel GPUs, which is better than one of those. I guess that's the best one that's available on an all-in-one laptop/tablet combo so far.
