define "crappy laptop". While I think demudi would be the way to go any distro can be set up for linux audio (and yes this will probably require patching and recompiling the kernel but don't make it sound imposible just 'involved'). there are several choices for software. what hardware do you have and what do you want to do with it. ecasound doesn't take much power (that is if running your studio from a command line only doesn't scare you.)

certainly didn't mean to give the wrong impression.
recording on Linux works great.
my posts were in response to O/Ps opening line

never used linux
and then everyone says "just pick one -- any one"

sure is nice to have it work out of the box for beginners
hard enough to use new audio apps as it is.
more time making music
less time sorting
Code:
JACK: unable to mlock() port buffers: Operation not permitted
jack_create_thread: error -1 switching current thread to rt for inheritance: Unknown error 4294967295

MMMM, not really what i had in mind. When i say crappy laptop, it isnt that bad, a few years old 1.5ghz pentium (celeron), 352mb ram. As for installing a new distro and recompiling the kernel, that's just not feasible. I've spent enough time getting fedora up and running, and really have not got the inclination or the time to start over. I basically want some software that is like Acid on XP, where i can use my synth via the audio in on my computer. Ideas?
Regards,
Graham
