Getting started with music

Post by wunder_musiker »

Hi,

after looking around for half a year getting some tips from this forum I finally registered.
Switched to Ubuntu about 4 years ago and took my family with me. Started last year playing guitar and got into those music applications mid last year.
Gear:
Lenovo W520 20GB RAM
Focusrite Solo Bundle
Arturia Factory Keyboard
Ibanez RG370DX
Yamaha CPX 900NT
and a Rockband Drumkit haha :D

Digging into the Music Apps with currently using:
Ardour 6pre - compiled from github - from my perspective midi editing looks fair
Hydrogen - Great Drum App
Cadence/Carla Jack/LinVST - Great
LMMS - Great to create new sounds
Musecore for notation and furthermore...
Luppp + Seq64 + Non-Sequencer for looping & sequencing or just playing around

for the electric guitar Tonestack, Go-DSP-Guitar, Moddevices,Guitarix and Rakkarack. First two mentioned are the easiest to use for a beginner.

Targets: Improve musical skills. Get to know the Apps and recording. Try & Error. Have fun. :P
DAW: Ardour
Guitars: Acoustic Yamaha CPX900; Ibanez RG 370DX
Audio: Focusrite Scarlett Solo Studio
Keyboard: Arturia Analog Factory Expression
Midi Pad: Akai Professional MPD32
Roland Cube 40GX & Footswitch

Hey there and welcome.

You seem to have a solid hardware and software basis to really live your music.
I like that you commit to the Linux audio modular way with non-sequencer and luppp. I find it quite rewarding to craft once own perfect setup.

Keep us tuned
