Advice for a DAW under Linux (don't laugh, please!)

Postby jlborges » Fri Sep 23, 2016 8:44 am

Hi all.
My main objective is to compose music and render it in high quality audio files.
I've been using LMMS with SF2 soundfonts and a few VST plugins (windows DLLs). Now it stopped working for some reason even on a fresh clean install with the KXStudio repos.
I've just tried MuSE but it simply dumps the core and doesn't start.
Is there any other software I can run under Linux to do the same?

renoise, tracktion, bitwig, ardour, qtractor, non suite

If you want to use windows vsts then there are two options, you can use carla to load them or airwave. Then you can load them up in your chosen host. I use airwave inside renoise myself, and ardour for audio editing (vocals etc).

Also, reaper is pretty solid running under wine and from my experience with it windows vsts are more stable in that than carla or airwave in ardour etc. Depends what you need though.

Audacity is very simple and user friendly interface and can do high quality audio formats included Wav and Flac. I suppose ardour does the job well enough too and qtractor is a well developed DAW aswell.

Fosile topic. :mrgreen:

But with me first the question rases what kind of music you want to go produce. The anwer is important for the right choises.
