Interview with zthmusic

Gabbe Nord does a weekly interview series that he calls, "The Friday Interview".  Each Friday, he interviews someone in the Linux Audio community.  This week, I had the good fortune of being interviewed by Gabbe.  Check it out.

Thanks to Gabbe for taking the time to interview me.


Video Tutorial on `synthclone`

Glen MacArthur, the creator of AVLinux, recorded a video tutorial about `synthclone`, and how he used `synthclone` to create a Hydrogen drum kit using the sounds from Addictive Drums.

Glen did a fantastic job of addressing the different parts of the `synthclone` workflow.  I highly recommend this tutorial to anyone attempting to get up to speed on using `synthclone`.

Thanks, Glen!
