New Garage Band Recorder

Post by ericjmcd »

Hey folks - new member from outside LA. I'm a father of 3 boys that found some other parent musicians who started jamming in my garage. I set up an old Windows laptop with Ubuntu 18.04 and Ardour along with a Tascam US-16x08 to do some live recordings for a reality check (mostly to hear my rusty guitar chops).

Hoping to find some help here with handling these live recordings in Ardour and then share some knowledge (assume I learn something).

There's nothing specific about mixing on Linux. It's the same as on any other platform. Setting up a Linux audio workstation is certainly different than with macOS/Windows, but once you did that, you can use your studio PC for years without any maintenance but installing updates, which also include new plugin versions and stuff.
Being creative does not imply being lazy, stupid, or illiterate.

Working in Harrison Mixbus and Ardour on KDE Neon + KXStudio.

Welcome. Lots of good stuff here. Though some on here are into the sythy stuff, which has some different requirements to recording a band.

I am sure a good Google will get you some helpful videos

Yes, there are a handful of us here that like to record human beings playing conventional instruments. :) We're happy to share our tools and knowledge with you, and hope that you will share yours with us. And also your recordings -- please post them!

Welcome to the forum!
