New roundup of Linux audio-editing tools

story imageLinux is not exactly the heavyweight OS for audiophiles and musicians. Apple still holds the crown on that one, and the real professional Digital Audio Workstation (DAW) software packages target Windows as well. But things are looking up. Tech Republic just published this round-up of open source tools for musicians, and some of this software is looking pretty good indeed. Have a look at:
  1. Audacity
  2. Ardour
  3. Traverso
  4. QTractor, and
  5. Linux Multimedia Studio
I've been using Audacity since about 14 years ago, and it's truly come a long, long way. Now if we can just sort out the PulseAudio/ALSA mess, we'll be able to make some sweet music indeed.

MuseScore (Score: 1)

This is not exactly the right thread perhaps... but MuseScore is an excellent musical notation software available for Linux systems. I switched a friend from Sibelius to MuseScore about three or four years ago and for his needs he says he likes MuseScore better (than the version of Sibelius going at that time). Admittedly he is not a power user, but he does draft up a surprising amount of scores in very little time...
