Re: Linux music as a major player...

Has anyone ever thought about how the modularity of Linux audio systems offers the possibility for commercial companies to come up with creative licensing schemes for their commercial products, and still leverage open-source development in most of their code? We've had a request this year from a co...

Re: Linux music as a major player...

So, lets say, just for example, a deal is struck, and new versions of Guitarix and Hydrogen, are created as bog standard Mac apps, and also as an integral part of a new AVLinux7, so a buyer would purchase three downloads at one price, regardless of whether all three were planned for immediate use. T...

Re: Linux music as a major player...

I think AristX distro team made it clear that they were attempting to load up their release with 'everything'. After taking the synaptic chainsaw to it, and putting it on an ssd, it wasn't bad. Which implies that many linux apps are well coded, with some degree of interoperability, despite such dive...

Re: Linux music as a major player...

You think anything Commercial could be better than KXStudio?! I don't think so... The idea would be for full-time developement, by a team with leadership, employees, communication with the outside world, and a business plan to follow. Look at public response to the Bitwig release. There were many e...

Re: Anyone using EnergyXT 2.7?

why does it have to be a commercial product? everything I make will always be opensource, that's a price I'm willing to pay myself. it may sound a very bad business practice, but I'm not here for the money. Despite the more obvious rewards of fame, and wild women, what law states that open source c...

Very good advice, and the learning opportunities abound. It's pretty funny to hear
ones own oldies, and wonder who is to be blamed for such shoddy productions :wink:

Re: Linux music as a major player...

In my struggle to arrive at a viable, explicitly Linux-based solution I never arrived at this point, apart from the unexpressive sound fonts (but that is another point). If someone could teach me: I am really eager to learn. But no excuses please w/r/to "special hardware configurations that need to...

Re: Linux music as a major player...

we as a community have to be the FLOSS marketing team and we are failing. A community has borders, rules, and accepted standards. Who gets to choose the members of 'we'? Who decides which people ''have to be the...(fill in the blank)?' What FLOSS projects are saleable products? 'Team' implies exist...

Re: Linux music as a major player...

Does everyone really need 2,800 presets? When Google launched their chromebooks, one of their big selling points was that ChromeOS would upgrade free of charge. The market has shown most buyers want 28,000, from which 2800 will be auditioned, 280 may be used in recordings, and maybe 28 will ever be...

Re: Linux music as a major player...

Essentially, the hardware I am imagining is just an entry level PC with a decent soundcard. A decent soundcard needn't be super expensive - if I remember rightly, I paid about £100 for my M Audio Delta 1010LT. Computer and their parts are commodities, with tight sales margins, and little profit. Th...

Re: Linux music as a major player...

Cubase currently costs £488. Then you say to people that for that price they can not only get an excellent DAW but also the hardware to run it on, designed and preconfigured to just work straightaway out of the box with that DAW and - unlike Cubase - all upgrades would be free of charge, so it woul...

Re: Linux music as a major player...

Linux Audio focused commercial distro - before we discuss making another, perhaps a long hard look at reasons for those failures is necessary. A persistant and positive presence, in the necessary locations, is key to any venture. You must make yourself, and the products/services you provide, known,...

Re: Linux music as a major player...

I get 8 great months of stability then maybe 4 that aern't so great with linux. It just can't be that way. If someone updates their linux studio in month nine, when it was stable and working in month 8, they alone are to blame if it fails. Especially since it is trivial in linux, to have multiple t...
