terrible days configuring linux audio hell


running between alsa and jack cutting each other out
in the meantime supercollider moderates and sometimes
i can't hear the results. the alienware got bricked
way beforehand. misery. audio randomly disappears and
linuxmint audio configuration guis are also miserable.
supercollider works with jack. jack kills alsa. alsa
sneaks back through jack. jack dies and on reboot
there's alsa again. up pops jack and alsa's dead as a
doornail, an expression i don't understand. too much
configuration to make it through the night performing
with linux mint. windows works or doesn't but win10
tanked the alienware. i just realized bricked and
tanked somehow play together. it's 4:20 and last night
i was trying unsuccessfully to straighten the mess out.
a week from now i'm performing. i'll use violin and
hope for the best. there's nothing like a good violin.

anyway the result is a few brief pieces that pass for
signals because that's what they are, spewing noise
that says something to me.
