Audio software
 
Is there any audio editing software available to Linux? I'm an owner of Live!, I don't know how good the driversupport is when it comes to input/output..

Is there any software which can compare to Windows' alternatives?

Be honest.. :)

regards,
Cyth

I see you use Slacky, cool. I have an SB Live! also and I have one thing to say. My card actually works BETTER in Linux than Windows. I get full duplex I/O operation with my input and aux jacks, and Windows doesn't have a clue. Not that i've tried hard to fix it, but Slacky confingered it perfectly right off. As far as editing software, I am sure there is some out there, I usually check out Tucows Linux for the newest GPL apps for the week. Which Windows alternatives do you speak of? Cakewalk type, or MixMan/wav editors/studios?

On the same topic - taz: With your SB Live! can you get _both_ mixers working in your setup? I have a Windows client who has dipped into Linux for his desktop and we're trying to get controls for all four speakers (something he can do easily in Winders).

I did a search on www.linux.com and there was alot of interesting stuff in this subject(google will probably also show alot of neat stuff).

taz, I've been using Slackware for a couple of years(I'm not just that active on this forum). I actually started with Redhat(not saying it's easier to start with redhat..) and then later on converted to slack.
In other words I'm not that cool ;)

as for sound editing you may want to check out SoundTracker.

its only at around 6.x (unless they have taken huge leaps ahead) but it is very usable. Docs aren;t to hot but once you know that sort of thing your sorted.

it does sound sampling so may not be what you are looking for but hey.

i assume you've tried freshmeat.net and sourceforge.net ?

As of yet, I haven't set anything up special. Just using the EMU10K1 module after install. What/How much, does your client want to control exactly? I wanna be sure we're on the same page as to what we're talking about.

There's also Audacity. Don't think it's open-source, but it is free. Haven't used it much, as I only installed it the other day. Only opens samples (wav, aiff, etc), not midi files or tracker stuff.

Sound Forge?
 
I found a whole bunch of free linux sound editing software at http://www.hitsquad.com/ but i don't know what any of it is! and not having any real way to download a bunch of stuff and try it out, i would like to know what the best stuff is from word of mouth beforehand.
I bought Sound Forge 5 last year.
It is only for windows, and it is the Photoshop of audio.
The makers, Sonic Foundry seem to be taking a very Macromedia approach to UNIX (ignore it, and it might never happen) which is VERY irritating as their program is fantastic.
Is there anything as good in linux?
while i'm on the subject, is there anything like Sonic Foundry ACID for linux as well?

I would trawl through all the linux audio programs but i am not looking forward to coming up with 20 half finished command line wav players et cetera.
I don't mean to be derogatory, i'm sure you are all aware of the phenomenon i mean.
So, what's the best audio editing and looping software out there? it doesn't have to be free mind, i'd just like to know what the creme de la creme is...
ta everybody!

If anyone is into DAWs, then ardour is definately the way to go. I think the site is ardour.org.

Otherwise audacity is the best editor.
