Music Production


Hello,

I'm going to start using Linux for my Music studio and I was wondering what programs I should use for recording vocals, drums, bass, etc.

It'd be really helpful, thank you.

Bariman, who's a professional musician, has a couple of podcasts at HackerPublicRadio about his studio setup:

You might also get some ideas from Klaatu's SlackerMedia site:

My friend records all his music using Ardour I believe it's very powerful.

If I were you, I'd install a specialist distro for that, and you'll get excellent tools and software:
