Thank you very much!
Recording that.
Is LSP and foobar2000 an own plugin format like LADSPA, DSSI, Vamp, LV2, VST, AU, AAX, RTAS?
I'll leave that out for now. If it is a format of its own, I will of course include it. This is about the different plugin formats. Meta level. :-)

EDIT: Maybe LSP and foobar2000 fits better into "Linux Plugins (LADSPA, DSSI, Vamp, LV2, VST)" >> viewtopic.php?f=48&t=18663

Maybe also the availability of "standard of industry" software? For example Pro Tools and the like.

I thought that was included in point eight.
By dividing it into software in general and "industry standard" software, it is easier to see at a glance what is going on where and how.
Then one would have to roughly define beforehand what all falls under "industry standard" software i.e. 2 - x programs.
I don't know what kind of software there is, so let's do it together.

LSP plugins internally have their own common interface which is simply adopted to JACK, LADSPA, LV2 and VST by a thin layer of wrappers.
Standalone (JACK) version has additional benifit: is very easy to debug and develop, there is no need of any LADSPA/LV2/VST host.

So LSP is an own plugin format? I'll put it on the list. If I misunderstood, please correct me.

I am not too sure about it. The only information about this that I have is a friend of mine, who has a recording studio, stating that he would not switch to Linux due to preferring to run Pro Tools which, by being a sort of "standard", enabled him to easily cooperate with other studios. This happened some 5-6 years ago, I don't know whether the landscape changed in the meanwhile.

This is also the main argument here in Germany: Program xy does not run on Linux.
I don't know so many (~important) audio programs ( "standard of industry" software) of the other platforms so just collect/list what you can think of.
Pro Tools, Logic Audio, Cubase, Reaper, Ableton(?), Bitwig(?),...?
Then I can't think of any.

same for ukraine, russia and other ex-USSR countries.

Pro Tools, Cubase and Ableton are definitely considered industry standard.
Bitwig is still not, but i wish them to be in the same league ASAP, because actually Bitwig is even better than Ableton.

I have seen few recording studios using this: http://motu.com/products/software/dp. It might be more of a niche than a standard for all I know though. Anyone else knowing more about it?

Here is a meticulous listing of the different DAWs from a nice forum member from another forum. https://www.sequencer.de/synthesizer/th ... aw.124855/

Here are some more polls from some other "nice" forum members...

https://audiosex.pro/threads/which-daws ... oll.19570/

https://www.gearslutz.com/board/music-c ... -most.html

depending who you ask, you will get different answers, or ?
Audio and Midi files can allways be imported by any DAW software, so being compatible may not be so important.
Some companies like apple and steinberg, trying to push their products into markets by having cooperations with other hard and software companies and bundling demo versions with any other hard or software.

10.) "Standard of industry" software - fortuitously snapshot: from all three websites/surveys (1, 2, 3) the first 2 DAW's selected. # OK?

thanks. looks good.

and maybe it is worth mentioning, that with reaper native linux, bitwig native linux, mackie tracktion for linux and harrison mix bus the modern linux musician has some nice DAW host software to chose between.

Also, a quite serious guy told me he knew one of the first ableton live developpers and that ableton live was first developped for linux.

OM fakebake

Which DAW's run under Linux can be seen on different homepages.
If someone is seriously interested in Linux and music he will hopefully consider this for himself. Thinking. ;-)
I find it very interesting what the professional musician uses for official software.
I myself am not a musician and therefore I don't know anything about it.

I would be more interested in further surveys to refine the result more neutrally.
If you know any more polls, please post them.
