Linux DAW?

Long story short I spilled a drink on my windows laptop and it's trashed. I have another laptop running linux has anyone had any success or suggestions too hold me over until i can afford to replace it?

Re: Linux DAW?

There's a few threads on here that focus on working with Linux..you'll find most of them listed in the following thread I'm linking you to here - [Only registered and activated users can see links. Click here to register]


There's very possibly others, but these should be enough to help you find what you're looking for..but if not, then just hit the search feature on here yourself.The main issue I have personally when it comes to using Linux for producing, is that I'm heavily invested in Windows-based VSTs..meaning I've paid for them..and most still have yet to offer a crossover version of their products. I know you can get some really goods Linux-based stuff out there, but my experience has always been that there's this very real difference between making music with LInux and making it with Windows..one feel like you're driving a brand new car..while the other feels like you're having to build a basic go-cart yourself.

I'm just waiting for the time when Linux feels like you're driving a car..which will come in time..it has to. Until then, I can do without having to patch shit together..running buggy WINE that may or may not work..and trying to find Linux synths and software that comes close to what I've already paid for..in both sound quality and performance.

All of that is just personal stuff I'm dumping out here..but if YOU are totally bent on going down the Linux route, then I suggest you give the Linux Mint Mate distro a try, as it's pretty close to Windows in looks, as well as being one of the most stable versions out there.
