What instruments do you play and want to record? What kinds of sounds?Veerstryngh Thynner wrote:Hello all,

What genres of music? Everybody is off in the weeds commenting on nuts and bolts
and technicalities, and getting you nowhere. What are your artistic goals?
As you know, your desktop is far superior for audio production. And full midi i/o is an essential,
in almost all cases these days, in which scenarios, a full-featured midi controller keyboard
connected to an audio/midi interface that actually works with linux, will serve you far better
than some hardware and sliders, which don't.
If the zoom meets many/all of your recording needs as a standalone device,
that's great, but to get involved in computer based production,
you need an interface that works. One with full audio and midi
integration, to use with daw apps that feature fine software mixers
and mastering plugins. Such as the Komplete Audio 6, among others,
and linux daw apps like reaper, bitwig and mixbus.
I also think your laptop took a hard fall, perhaps loosening a connection(s),
perhaps has failing solder somewhere, or cooling issues leading to componant failure,
and or a damaged/weakened battery, maybe all four, based on the connection drop-outs,
radio play, and keyboard input issue.
Hope you're up and running soon! More info about your plans
will yield more focussed answers. A drummer and a cellist need not
have the same gear
