LXer: Editor's Note: Professional Audio Production on Linux


Published at LXer:

I was happy to read From Windows to Linux: A Sound Decision, by Sam Varghese, which ran earlier this week on IT Wire. Mr. Varghese interviews Geoff Beasley, the owner of Laughing Boy Records, and "a producer, composer, arranger and performer." Because it confirmed what I've felt all along, that Linux is a superior audio production platform. I don't have the skills of people like Geoff Beasley, so I wasn't confident in making that claim. In my own experience, audio production on Mac OS X starts out easier than on Linux or Windows. You don't have to fuss with hardware and system tuning, just hook up your audio gear, load up your software, and away you go. AppleScript is a great scripting language for GUI applications. There are three downsides: cost, inflexibility, and inconsistent application quality. It's the same old bushwah from the beginning of time: Most audio production software runs on both Mac and Windows, and rarely equally well on both, but better on one or the other. Sometimes a lot better. (I'm puzzled why vendors don't mind supporting two completely different platforms, but don't want to bother with OS X's close cousin Linux.)
