Best Distro For Audio Recording?


I have used Ubuntu since April, just installed the new vers. (7.10), & still no good with audio recording. (It will not capture stream audio, audacity edit, etc). Is there a distro that is good for home recording work?

How about UbuntuStudio? Open Synaptic, scroll down to Meta packages, and you can install it from there I think.

Thank you for the suggestion, I will give that a try. My thinking was that Ubuntu itself was to blame with my audio capture problem, but I will try your suggestion.

Installed. Had a boot issue with my nvidia video card, but got past that. Same problem with the audio, though. It will not record any stream/other...

Any ideas?

No, I haven't done anything like that. I just thought UbuntuStudio would be the easiest option for you to try. You're bound to get more answers from other members who know more about that subject though.

I am guessing it must be hardware related; Under sound preferences, I tested everything, & the capture device fails, no matter what I do...

When I do a test for sound capture in sound preferences, this is what I get; No matter which device I choose under capture, I still get the same error. Does this make sense to anyone? http://img135.imageshack.us/img135/9...undtestxs0.jpg

No, and I have to second that Ubuntu Studio is your best option right now. Agnula is dead, JAD, although Jacklab has done great stuff so far is not really stable enough... at least for me. Maybe its getting there, but Ubuntu definitely has the Userbase. Fedora with CCRMA is also an option though.

I agree to some extent. Although you should get a basic audio workstation ready without much trouble. And windows is only better if you want to invest in a decent audio workstation. Per default windows can only record one stereo Track for 30 seconds :P
You might want to start another thread for your audio capture problem.
