Essential information for new users

Postby nathan » Thu Jun 26, 2008 11:25 pm

We are certainly grateful and honored to have new Linux users, as well seasoned gurus that contribute to our community. If you're just getting into creating music on Linux, you'll want to check out these resources before you jump in a start posting.

First, head on over to the About Linux Musicians section. You'll find out the basics about this site and what we're all about, including our Our Mission Statement, Values, and Vision, as well as the ever important Forum Posting Guidelines.

Also, make sure to check out the newbie section on our wiki. You'll find great info to get you started there.

After you register, consider automatically logging in every time you visit. This way, we can all see when others are online...it really adds to the sense community. Feel free to also create a custom signature with information like your country of origin, instrument(s) played, and musical interests...you can also upload a custom avatar, if you like.

We encourage you to share your music with us in the Original Scores & Recordings forum! Once you've posted a few times, feel free to join The Rehearsal Room as well.

Welcome!

Thank you, Nathan for your welcoming me to the Linux Musicians community. I feel that I am a seasoned musician and songwriter but I am relatively new to Linux. I think that I have more to offer to a community that is based an open source philosophy. Since I am using Linux programs I feel that it is only fair that I contribute to a community that understands the philosophy of freedom.

Hi Lion,

Thanks for your question! It'd probably be better to start a new topic for your problem. Could you also describe in more detail what you've already tried?

thanks for the forum. its been many years since i have had a music production computer. i started out with impulse tracker on a 486 and moved up to a some sort of pentium with sound forge and cakewalk and cubase and ableton... you know all that expensive stuff. the old 486 ended up with slackware on it, but somewhere along the line i stopped making music.

now i am hoping to build a machine with decent audio capabilities and get back into music production. since i havn't run anything but linux in about 10 years, im really glad to find this forum. so again, thanks for being here.

FAQ says:

Why does my post need to be approved?
The board administrator may have decided that posts in the forum you are posting to require review before submission. It is also possible that the administrator has placed you in a group of users whose posts require review before submission. Please contact the board administrator for further details.

What is actual status, is whole forum moderated, or is it just newbies posts checked? If it is newbie-problem, does fixing it require some actions, or just few more posts?

it was a counter-measure against the huge amount of spam we got here.
things seem to be slightly better with the phpbb update, but there's still new spammers every 1-2 days. :(

Yes, I perfectly understand reason and I'm not questioning this procedure. I just want to know if this is for all / should I do something?

It's only the 1st post for new users that needs to be approved, at least in theory.
After your account has had an approved post, you should be able to post without issues.

I have now 1 new thread, and dozen replys. Editing my own post results message 'your post will be reviewed' or something like that.

I noticed that... some setting changed with the phpbb update. investigating...

EDIT: all seemed ok...
if the problem keeps happening let me know, perhaps it's time to disable the new-post-needs-approval thing.

Good evening my friends! I'm 26 years old from Greece. I play classical guitar and started piano lessons a few months ago. Although I am not a Linux user, I'm planning to begin a project with a single board computer like raspberry pi, odroid etc and I seek informations. I like the idea of open source os and software and that's the reason I want to learn more about linux. My projects goal is a budget and portable music station for midi recording, editing sheets, music notation etc.
Glad to meet you and have a nice musical week

Their MIDI implementation is awful. Apart from that, it's very good.

I see other problems in it, but a lot more on the personal side.

Hi from Germany

Postby wjl » Fri Mar 17, 2017 12:43 pm

Hi all,

new user here - not so new to Linux, or to music (since I've just turned 60).

But ok - since music "rested" a few years, I'm pretty new to the "make music with Linux" stuff. I'm on Debian 8, using Ardour with a Focusrite Scarlett 6i6 2nd gen interface - which works fine out of the proverbial box.

Living in Germany and married to a Malaysian.

Nice to - virtually - "meet" all of you here.

Cheers,
Wolfgang
