I've just had my computer OS reinstalled this time I've gone with Ubuntu Studio.

 

So a question for the Linux gurus any tips on getting the best out of the Studio edition?

 

I'm still a relative newbie to Linux so any pointers will be appreciated.

I went with linux mint, about 4 weeks ago and still learning myself. All I can say is look on the Ubuntu forums and google and youtube when you have certain problems, those have been my best bet so far. Might also check out the mint forums if you can't find an answer at Ubuntu. I'm still trying to get a grasp of Wine and Play on Linux for running a couple of windows programs. I like it so far, quicker and faster. Best of luck!

I've been on 6/7 different distros of Linux this past 18 months. If i get stuck I do have the other half to help out with anything should Linux go wrong.

 

When I said relative newbie I meant I'm still learning things it's just taking some getting used to like XP did back with my first PC.

 

I mainly wanted to know if there were any audio benefits with Ubuntu studio over other linux distros. Especially for production of shows etc? Apart from Audacity what should I be using to record stuff with?

You can also use Reaper with wine and playonlinux. I just installed today and was messing around with it. Seems to work just like it did in windows, I used a few of the plugins that come with reaper and no problems at all. I haven't tried installing any of my other plugins yet. If I can get most of those working, I will be down to 2 programs that I have to keep a copy of windows for. One will never work in Linux, since I have to have an ilok key to get it to work in windows. The other, I haven't tried to get it up and running yet.

 

Reaper is a pretty decent DAW, and comes with a fair selection of plugins to get you up and running. They give you a 60 day trial period to try it out and then purchase for $60.00. It will still work even after your 60 day trial with no limitations or interrupts in audio. It's based on the honor system.

 

I tried out Ardour and jack, it was okay, but I am more comfortable using Reaper. I found info saying that Reaper would work in Linux, so I decided to download and try it. Since it's working, that's the way I'm going to go with Linux.

 

Other programs reported to work with PlayOnLinux includes Ableton Live 8 & 9, Absynth 5, FL Studio 10, Guitar Rig 5, Reaper 4, Reason 5, and Trektor Pro 2 (2+2 DJ control mixer).
