audio recording software
 
I bought a TASCAM us-122 and I was looking around for a good audio recording-mixing software program. Does anyone have any ideas on what would be good to use? I'm just going to record my guitar, one track at a time. Nothing fancy.
Thanx

Athlon xp 3200
Suse 10.0

Audacity is probably the easiest one to get installed.

my vote is ardour combined with jamin

To do serious audio work you need more as just a good software as ardour, but a multimedia kernel too.
Agnula/Demudi is certainly what you have dreamed about as musician. http://demudi.agnula.org/

Can anyone enlighten me about multi-media kernels. I've been using audacity for some time to cut and paste audio files and clean them up a bit, but I'd like to get it working as a recording app to digitalize some of my older tapes and LPs. However, I'd prefer to do it in my own distro (I mean, not change to another) and keep working with my normal apps as well.

A realtime kernel is basiquely a vanilla kernel with Ugo Molnar's patch and the realtime-lsm module.

You must have some scipts too, in order to fix the realtime priorities when booting. The rtc (real time clock) must have the higger hardware priority, followed by the sound cards, one by one, followed by the other hardwares, one vy one.

After, you must define the software priorities. For that, you must be in the audio group, and this group must have an higger priority as the other groups. So all the programs you will use will have an higger priority as the other, and that as a normal user. So, it is not necessary or recommanded to use jack as root.

A distro that have all that is Agnula-Demudi.
Otherwise, you can take a look at

Good luck!

Be aware at it can be problems with a realtime kernel and buggy hardwares as VIA chipset or even SIS chipset.
Good luck!

For gentoo's users, it is a good howto proaudio Realtime Kernel

For french speakers, this site is really amazing: MAO Linux
