I'd suggest Rosegarden if you're looking for a cool Linux MIDI Sequencer. At least, until they finish up the MIDI in Ardour.

Not me, for sure.
So i guess I'll stick to that for some time
Same here. I do however envy those who have sonar's midi and surround, renoise's lfo device and the group/folder tracks of just about any other sequencer.

I haven't used Rosegarden extensively, but I've tried to get into it several times. My impression is that it seems really buggy, unstable, and unpolished. I haven't been able to successfully use it for actual work. If your experience differs, speak up.

I've also had the same experience with Rosegarden. My sequencer of choice for linux would be seq24

Re: Favorite DAW/Sequencer?

Damn Renoise users are popping up all over the place now. Weird. Also...


Where is Hydrogen?! Best drum sequencer ever! (Better than Renose TBH, though it ought to be since that's basically all it does)

Its actually pretty stable and polished now, I've been using it for about a year. Doesn't support vsts and not that full featured or customizable, but still really good for a free program.

Re: Favorite DAW/Sequencer?

Ableton Live for me. Been using it since version 4. Before that I used Sony Acid.

I am very quick at working in live so I never see any need to move of it. Done 3 albums and 3 eps with it. I know its midi editing isn't supposed to be as good as some of the other mature sequencers, but I have never used them so don't know what I am missing and therefore happy :-)

Re: Favorite DAW/Sequencer?

Definitely FL Studio,

but I think it's the same as so many people around: if I learned another one 10 years ago I probably would made another choice... now FL is like my fingernails, I use it since the first version!

I think the most important part is the workflow you achieve to get with a DAW, then it's possible to make very good music with each and every one.

Re: Favorite DAW/Sequencer?

I started on FL, tried Cubase, (hated it) used Reason for awhile, and eventually found Renoise. Just goes to show that the DAW you start with isn't necessarily the one you're going to be most comfortable with.

Of course, I may just be picky. I'll admit that every once in awhile I miss Reason. It has the best synths, and a decent drum machine.
