Smile Home Studio Recording

Hey Gang,

I'm a drummer and do home recording/editing on projects for my band. I use the windows platform for this right now.

I currently have a Debian workstation up and would like to ask all for suggetions on software that I can use.

I've found Rosegarden and Sweep sound studio.

Any comments on these?

Are there any musicians out there with suggetions.

Thank you in advance...

Have you tried Audacity already? The other two may be more sophisticated, but for quick and easy recording (track by track), Audacity is really delivering, and there also is a Debian package (Sarge is at 1.2.3 - a bit dated; Etch has 1.2.4b - stereo recording; Sid sports 1.3.2beta).

the majic combination seems to be
Jack audio connection kit as sound server
QJackCtl helps with running jack
Ardour for multi track recording
JAMin for mixing/mastering
rosegarden or Muse for midi
LADSPA are you effects plugins
there is also session managers if you want to be able to reenter a complex configuration again after exit like ladccad.

Home Studio (it's an older article but still useful):

Have fun!
