Honestly I don’t know how to start and describe “What I’ve done” (screenshots down below)
Long story short.
I’ve started project on 1.60 Ghz HP 356 and XFCE was too much for this brave laptop when recording session had more than fifteen tracks and tons of plugins (compressors, equalizers etc). PC always was on last place because all money I invested in music equipment and related things. So I don’t had many options (meanwhile I discovered OpenBox and i3) and I started to think…
Back to the subject.
Basically it’s redesigned OpenBox (regular) made by fhdk with Obsuite from William (alfalfa) and “jgmenu trick” from Piotrek (nwg). So credits go to gentlemen
My copycat work is “Studio and Daily” mode, few pdfs with plugins description, system configuration, Ardour configuration, tips for beginners, install scripts, Frankenstein obmenu and few things I don’t remember now.
Main goals is to have one system for daily and studio work and ergonomic graphical environment. What i mean is guitar on leg and keyboard they don’t like each other.
For now I can’t say that RecBox is done in 100% I think it will never be. It’s always something that can be done better and cool plugin worth to be mentioned. Btw last days I’ve added enable and disable cpu power and RTC services item to obmenu, so manjaro behave almost like a normal system. I need to do something with disabling threadirqs when is not needed but it’s matter of time. Probably shell script do the job.
Now Increasing RTC, enabling cpupower service, and threadirqs are managed by WorkFlow > Studio and Daily options. No need do this manually
I always forget to mention it. If in RecBox is something you like but you don’t want to drop your desktop environment I’ll be happy to help you with “transplantation”
I’ll be appreciated for all suggestions and happy christmas
I’ve made Matcha color scheme based theme for Ardour.
If you enjoy it you can grab theme from separated repo or AUR if you don’t want whole RecBox Stuff.
