LInux Multitrack Studio
I have been playing with Ardour for about a week now and find it intriguing. I am looking for recommendations for a multiple input sound card that plays well with Linux. If i were to try to build a multitrack studio (just for personal use, not a big professional rig), what are some recommendations for hardware and software?
Current setup is:
SUse 9.3 Pro
Athlon XP 2000+
Onboard AC97 audio
For hardware, apart form the M-audio delta's and the RME Hammerfall series documented on the ardour website an audigy soundblaster is good enough for personal use. The main requirement is good alsa support. Jack (as you probably know) at http://jackit.sourceforge.net is a must.
For related software, you could try
Muse, at http://www.muse-sequencer.org/
Hydrogen, at http://www.hydrogen-music.org/
fluidsynth at http://savannah.nongnu.org/projects/iiwusynth/
This is a very short list. Most of these sites have links to many more sites.
if you wanna do any sortta audio work check out the Planet CCRMA website:
there's a load of excellent sequencers, processing software, all the JACK stuff, midi software etc. Definetly recommended!!
Since I see this thread... if I wanted to do voice recording, what kind of microhone do I need for some decent quality? (Not musical, but interviews, etc.)
I'm using ardour / ecasound with an M-Audio Delta 1010LT this thing took like 10 min to setup with linux and works great. I like Sure mics and they have a whole line of mics for speech.
