The 64 Studio Community is amazing tolerant, something that is seldom
for Linux communities
. I don't know linuxmusicians.com, but I do know
some German Linux forums and there's no tolerance and especially
real-time audio is a PITA at those forums. Anyway, I agree that there's
the need to breath new life into the 64 Studio forums and users mailing
Btw. it seems to be, that you and I have a similar history regarding to
music and computers. I've got a 40MB (in words "forty mega bytes") SCSI
hard disk with a LACOM controller for my Atari ST
. There's something
unbelievable, this Seablade HD sometimes needs several starts before
it's fine, but it's still fine, while a lot of modern hard disks I had
are junk within 2 or 3 years. For my C64 I never had a hard disk
I used it for producing music without SMPTE, just with an interface that
produced a click for sync, without any position code.
