Anything like protools or garageband for linux if you want to record guitar

Anyone into guitar, that has set up recording on their linux box. I noodle around on guitar, been playing about 3yrs.

Haven't messed with recording at all - not even on windows.

Thinking I'd like to set up some recording; like home version of pro tools, garageband, ect....but i need to buy a piece equipment to hook up to the computer, but wondering what software i can use to record...

Any thoughts...

I'm playing guitar almost 15 years,but I never had the need for involving computer in my music.I think you should check this site if you are looking for a Linux distro for music production.

Quite a few options depending on how simple or complex you want to work.. or how many tracks you wish to be able to record at one time..


The Alsa project site has a list of compatible sound cards. if you decide you want 4, 8 or 16 track recording you would want to look at something like the M-Audio cards.
