PipeWire: The Linux audio/video bus

> For more than a decade, PulseAudio has been serving the Linux desktop as its predominant audio mixing and routing daemon — and its audio API. Unfortunately, PulseAudio's internal architecture does not fit the growing sandboxed-applications use case, even though there have been attempts to amend that. PipeWire, a new daemon created (in part) out of these attempts, will replace PulseAudio in the upcoming Fedora 34 release. It is a coming transition that deserves a look.

I’ve been working in-house for a year now, but my most important survival tip for #freelance work is to not work without a contract. Even if it’s brief – just make sure both sides are clear on scope, cash, distribution rights and number of revisions. It will save you so many headaches later on.

It's shocking how many artists work on blind faith with randos, send over highres final files, and then just kind of hope that it will work out - recipe for disaster and very preventable.

There's been a lot of new supporters joining my Patreon lately - thank you! One day I shall be making FOSS audio tutorials as my main job :)

cancelled my spotify subscription. Going to move to free alternatives and use the $10 a month to buy an album from bandcamp every month.

Re: Your Privacy 

Your privacy is delicious to us.

Your privacy is juicy-sweet and crunchy and wine-dark red and breathes a rich, savage musk-like scent, heavy on iron and with notes of truffle and mushroom and old, buried bones in the forest floor.

Your privacy dribbles gently down our lips as we chew, and after long, fragrant, eternities, swallow. Gulping, wolfing it down.

We would do ANYTHING to keep you handing us your precious, precious privacy.

Can we please stop using Discord for Free software and open source projects, thanks!

@openmastering Some of my songs I've released for free under CC-BY, but I like to maintain control over who's licensing. So I usually release under (C), but I'm absolutely giving out free licenses left and right if I'm asked nicely. :)

"By definition, being a professional means having to spend at least some amount of time thinking about the marketplace. Is there an audience for the music you’re making? If not, you’re guaranteed to fail. Amateurs, on the other hand, never have to think about this question at all. This frees them to make music entirely for themselves, on their own terms."

My favorite quote from "Making Music" by Dennis Desantis

L'April fait #libreavous par elle-même… et elle le documente!

L'équipe en charge de la régie tient ainsi à jour un wiki où elle présente les outils et précise les procédures.
Ce qui facilite beaucoup la formation de nouvelles recrues😁
