Is there a URL or program title that you want to tell us about?

There's several good free loudspeaker cab design tools. Is this of what you speak?

Cheers!

I've not worked with that one, but it looks like Spectran, another full featured freeware program. I found it useful for deciphering weak digital radio signals than speakers.

What's your purpose for it? Those aren't the best for speaker designing unless you can change the window (Spectran has the waterfall display, IIRC. It's been a few years since I've worked on Windows).

Cheers!

Default Hi Geek

After that embarrassment, I'm glad someone took a look. I just found it by accident, and just posted it, in case it was any good. I haven't used it myself.

A little off topic - anybody, who would like to try out Lunux - try Ubuntu - easy for beginners.

Back to topic - does anyone know about any other speaker related software for linux? Are there ports of some favorite applications?

Default I tried already

I use two NICs in Windoz, 1 connects to my Cable DSL modem, then another NIC shares my Internet connection over LAN for my Kids. I bought 2 DSL routers and neither worked, nor with Windoz???

Using 2 NICs, works now with ease in WindozXP, I can get it up and running within minutes. Im' dying to go Linux. PCLinuxOS is a nice looking Distro, Ubuntu ain't too bad either, but without the knowledge, I'm stuck with Windoz.

Sorry to be off topic, I reckon if more diyAudio'ers used Linux, it would be a valuable OS for Audio design, no?

Mike

Agreed.

I had no problem getting any Windows based audio design gadget to run on Ubuntu and Wine

I use Jaaa and Japa on Linux (native) and my Linux laptop for portability. Well, it's a sig/noise gen and FFT for speaker sweeping (not intended for that, but it works). They need to be compiled from source.


What I would suggest for anyone doing the "Win-to-Lin" crossover is load Ubuntu on a second computer and tinker with it, or just run it from the CD (you can do that!).

You can dual-boot, but setting that up flawless without killing one or the other OS is tricky for a beginner (before I get shouts - yes, 4 out of 5 times it'll go perfect) and it's best done with a new hard drive anyway with manually configured fdisk partitioning.

Heh, did I get enough audio content in this post?

Cheers!
