Long time music producer. (Relatively) new to linux

Post by Drainer333 »

Hello everyone

I've just joined and I'm hoping to be much more active here than I usually am on forums. I haven't been producing much music recently but I'm looking to get back into it on linux.

Glad to be here :)

I've already got Reaper and I'd much rather run it natively than have to deal with running Ableton through wine. Gettings yabridge working is the main challenge at the moment, not sure what's wrong with it.

Maybe you can start a separate topic on yabridge. I remember that it's very sensitive for the version of Wine you have...

Good luck!

Is there any reason people use linux and then use wine to use Ableton?

Wouldn't it just make sense to have a dual boot and run Ableton from Windows?

I don't think many Linuxers do that. And yes: dual bot is better for that. If you really need to use the odd Windows app for a short time then there's Wine. If it's an application the you use for hours that can be quite the CPU and resources hog: look for an alternative or dual boot.
