hi all!

since we're talking about music authoring... doesnt Creox fit in here? its a program to add a wide range of effects to whatever comes in the input... mainly meant for the guitar though. And it makes me sound waaaay better than i really do :-) I've used it so much this year and its even part of the Ubuntu Studio Project!

Please add Creox...

RoseGarden is the only useful linux notation editor in Linux. Doesn't seem to fit in with the others in this category, actually.

GramoFile is my favourite for ripping vinyl to ogg.

Since that's not listed, I'll go with Audacity. Great for tidying up albums manually on the few occasions where GramoFile's automatic processing produces an unsatisfactory result.

I have not voted, as I like some of them just as much.

Audacity: pretty much the standard audio editor. Good for editing wavefiles & such.

Muse & Rosegarden : very nice (midi) sequencers. Haven't really made up my mind which I like best. The perfect linux sequencer would be a combination of both I guess.

Other 'missing' apps include lmms and beast.

Ardour is a much heavier, more powerful tool than audacity, but it can be a bit of a pain to set up JACK.

I started using Audacity when I was a (puke) Window$ user. I just find everything I need in there.

Audacity & JACK

If audacity worked with JACK, it would indeed be sweet. I can't vote for any program that doesn't jive with JACK, Jack. If it did though.... cowabunga!
