Unhappy Sound Recording from analog to digital


Is there a software for Linux, particularly Ubuntu, that with which you can record old LP's and audio cassettes onto your computer? In other words, is there a product like the excellent Audiograbber in Windows for Linux?

Audacity and many others. The Linux repositories contain so many Audio capture/editor variants that it is hard to list them all and a bit daunting to choose one. However, Audacity is very complete, elegant, highly graphical and sophisticated. A bit of a learning curve, but well worth the effort. For cassettes, you can probably just use the line output of any good cassette player plugged into your computer audio interface's line input. For LP's, I've had much better results using a USB turntable (Numark I think). The software that comes with it is Windows only (i.e., useless), but since the turntable appears as a standard USB audio class Linux/Audacity could care less.

Photoshop and Illustrator. I might need them for work later in life and I'd prefer to work under GNU/Linux when at home.
Playchess would be nice too! I could play personally on chess.com, but I need to be able to test chess IA by making them play against a good number of human players.

UBUNTU 10.04 has a chess game that lets you play yourself.

Dreamweaver - there's nothing really like it in a native Linux application.

Quickbooks - Once again, there's no native Linux program with this kind of functionality.

Xara Extreme - I know there's a Linux port, but it hasn't been worked on in years, it should be brought up to date so there's full compatibility with the Windows version.

Sort of. Only when you use the built-in database does it have those inferior limits (like maximum column and/or row counts and extreme corruption due to concurrent use).

I would never use any non-concurrent DBMS for anything large and / or for multiple users. That would be like aiming for trouble.

But Access works on other DBMS systems as well. It's very well tied to MS-SQL Server (as you'd expect) - in which case the limits are then gone and concurrency is at least not an issue anymore. But it's also possible to link Access to MySQL/PostGre/FireBird if you so wish.

The reason Access is so good is not because of it's database engine (which is P!$$ poor - even worse than Paradox), but due to its User Interface. I've never seen such a powerful yet easy to use and efficient for design Form Designer in anything else. E.g. making a combo-box which looks up a value from another table but saves a key from the selected value's row into the form's datasource's field is a snap (taking no more than 10 seconds to make) in Access, but requires coding in all other stuff (including OOoBase) - which could take hours (if you know what you're doing), or days (if you don't).

The current versions of Quicken Premier and TurboTax Premier both are needed on Linux. That's all it'll take for me to be done with WinOS.

Do your taxes online with TaxAct or something similar and you won't need those programs.

Keith, here are some answers for you:
1) iTunes - I doubt Apple will ever port this to another operating system unless it sees a big market share of people to convert; however, I'd like to see it, too!
2) Skype - is available for Linux already
3) Video editor - there are a few video editors already for Linux; Wikipedia has a page listing them

I'm using Ubuntu 12.04 LTS and it's working fine

Regards,
Brian.

You people don't really understand that MS products won't be ported to Linux.....To me thats the whole point behind Linux, its to forget MS.

I still wouldn't mind seeing a better Photoshop program, Gimp is ok...but people have gotten used to the Photoshop layout. I also want to see ImageReady...It'd be handy to have, it won't run on Wine either
Sorry, I wouldn't even call gimp OK - I use paint before I use gimp.. I totally agree with you, like 100%

I guess most of the stuff other than image editors that I use work fine on linux.. and google is trying to get silverlight to work for netflix so I have nothing better to recommend =[

I guess a skype that isn't horrible would be cool

Kdenlive (for video editing) is very amazing, I worked with final cut pro (apple) for a few years and learning kdenlive took only a few days... it works pretty good too!

Kyodai, because that's the only Windows program I have to get going in Wine on my wife's computer. Linux mahjonggs don't come close to the excellence of Kyodai.

I would be delighted to pay for a Linux version.
