I love and use my Mac and Windows setups to death, but maybe it’s time for a three-platform world. Desktop Linux is slowly gaining ground, and it’s particularly strong in the area of music software. There’s a new Linux music blog, and I like the title:

Linux Rock Star, by DCZX

Highlights:

  1. ALSA Modular Synth, pictured, for getting your synthesis on
  2. How-to set up a free LADSPA vocoder
  3. Interview with an Ardour developer; Ardour is the high-end open source Linux DAW
  4. Finally, a solution for musical package management on SUSE, from what I can see

DCZX, do let us know who you are. Via forums.

  • I've found that modular synth on screenshot interesting and downloaded it. ALSA Modular Synth really rocks! Check it out and you won't sorry.
