Nice to see such a forum!

Anyway,

let's compile a list of audio software for Linux. I'll kick off with some:

pd
SuperCollider
mixxx
CSound
Festival

I remember a physical modeling program (non-realtime) that could emulate steel bars and bells, anyone remember?

Yes, great idea. If anyone has new software, please keep the links in this thread! We can discuss the use of particular software in their own threads. If this explodes, maybe we'll break it up into Recording, Synths, MIDI, etc.

Here's one place to start:

And the homebase of most things Linux/Audio:

Oh my,

that's a big list Wink

Now we should have some reader feedback on which one to tackle (what with lots of linux software requiring some free hours to build&test)....

Great list! I'll try some of those...

I see some mentions of VSTi adapters for Linux... this wouldn't mean I'd be able to fire up .dll's on linux right?

I was just wondering about that yesterday, and it just might work (if you wouldn't fire up the GUI and running on a i386)... hmmm, I'll look into that.

Well, there's a lot more music stuff for Linux than I imagined. That's great... Lot's to look at.

I'll add stuff I actually got to work (and which pleased my ears) in my original post.

Today's addition: festival!

Non-realtime speech synthesis program, the lovechild of several Ph.Ds and other professional geeks. Pretty cool.

When I have some time on my hands I'll start building some apps on my new linux machine (which is gathering dust under my desk, looking at it's baby brother which is actually put to work) and try to report some of the basic steps needed to transform a standard linux install into a DAW(ish).

There is a whole slew of libs and stuff needed for most programs, but they might be included in the current distro's.

Assuming you include MIDI things in the category of audio software,
here's a pointer to an article in this month's Linux Journal
about keykit: http://www.linuxjournal.com/article/8153

That is really a nice article. Congratulations, Tim.

Here's a secret that now out of the bag. Tim will be presenting a talk/performance at electro-music 2005. Be there or be sinusoidal.

some of the apps that I use to produce my stuff:

ardour (recording, mixing, mastering)
jamin (mastering)
sox (command line chopping, batch processing and fx)
rezound (editing)
audacity (editing)
snd (editing)
chuck (synthesis, rendering, composition)
cheesetracker (uhhh...tracking Wink
jack-rack (fx)
keykit (midi, sequencing)
faust (dsp development)

to name a few...i'm sure I've forgotten some and that's not including the audio hacks I write myself and don't ever release.

great thread!

here's my apps: (ubuntu)

ams (amazing mod synth, mind blowing!)
ardour (outstanding hard disk recorder)
cecilia (csound front)
chuck (music oop, live coding)
hydrogen (awesome drum machine, best on any platform imo)
jack control (jack server and connector)
jack rack (effects rack)
kaconnect (alsa connector)
puredata (music oop, graphical)
qsynth (soundfont player)
rezound (wave editor)
rosegarden (better than cubase DAW!)
soundtracker (i love trackers, damnit! blow me.)
specimen (sampler)
supercollider (oop, text)
zynaddsubfx (vst like synth)


you can do no wrong with that list, and your creativity should be unhampered. with feisty fawn release, ubuntu plans on releasing ubuntustudio as well. looking forward to it! just a pass-on to those interested.

Here's an interesting synth I found yesterday,

Mx44

a little idiosyncratic, one for fiddlers.

Anyone used the linux sampler yet?

http://www.linuxsampler.org/

For the moment you can only use gig sampler files with it, it's still quite early stage software, but worth keeping your eye on.

I wanted to try linux sampler but I couldn't get it to compile and didn't have the time to get it working unfortunately.

My favorite straight sampler is chionic (basically the sound engine of cheesetracker with some added features) since it's really fast (low cpu usage) and loads XI instruments natively and has a pretty cool plugin/channel routing architecture for FX.
