The latest version of the GNU/Linux distribution for creatives is here; Ubuntu Studio 20.10 ‘Groovy Gorilla’.
In this video I will be highlighting the main changes between this version and the previous version (20.04 LTS), as well as going through the software that comes installed in this version of the distribution.
Also, sorry for the later than expected upload of this video. I’ve been pretty busy recently and this video took a long time to edit.
Recently I had been running out of space on my Audio/Video Production Workstation, so I decided to buy some more SSDs.
I’ll be adding a 1TB ADATA XPG NVMe SSD, with the help of a Silverstone M.2 to PCIe card. I will also be adding a 1TB Crucial SATA SSD, which will be going into a Silverstone 5.25″ 4 slot 2.5″ drive bay.
Originally this was going to be a dual subject video. As well as being about upgrading the storage on my audio production workstation it was also going to be documenting if it was indeed possible to install an NVMe SSD (by using a PCIe card) onto an AMD FX based motherboard, AND if that was possible if it would be able to become my main boot drive.
It does indeed work, however, the amount of video footage I ended up filming trying to get it to work made me realise that this needs a video of its own. For this reason there are a couple of jump cuts in this video where I was talking about compatibility to do with the NVMe drive and the FX processor.
The video about getting the NVMe drive to work with my FX based motherboard is currently in the works.
For almost a decade now I have been powering my pedalboard with a trusty Dunlop DC Brick. However, as my pedalboard has grown and more power hungry pedals have come to the market, this power supply is no longer going to cut it.
It’s time to find a new, more powerful power supply with at least 11 outputs.
Since 2010 I’ve been using Pro Tools as my primary Digital Audio Workstation (or DAW for short), and as good as it has been to me I am finding myself becoming bored with it and wanting to switch to a different DAW.
This is the first in a multi-part journey to finding a new DAW. If you have any suggestions of DAWs I should try, please feel free to comment letting me know!
Also in this video I learnt that I pronounce the work ‘Headache’ very strangely.
For various reasons (listed in this video) I have decided to make channels on both Dailymotion and LBRY to go alongside my YouTube channel. Don’t worry I’m not leaving YouTube, and going forward all of my videos will be uploaded to all three platforms.
You can find me on Dailymotion under the channel name: Adam Thomas Music, and on LBRY under @AdamThomasMusic.
Also it seemed like a good time for a general channel update!
