Linux has made great strides forward in the provision of professional applications for the creation, manipulation, and recording of audio and music. It is now possible to create a professional level Digital Audio Workstation (DAW) using only Free Software. For a number of years audio applications for Red Hat Enterprise Linux and Fedora Core have been packaged by Fernando Lopez-Lezcano in the Planet CCRMA repository; recently a Fedora Extras SIG has been created for audio.

Christoph plans to cover:

  • a high-level overview of the projects & goals
  • an evaluation of the competitive (proprietary & OSS) landscape
  • trends and industry standards
  • high level overview of MIDI
  • high level overview of firewire & audio
  • summary of installation & configuration
  • demonstration of Rosegraden (midi-sequencing)
  • demonstration of Ardour is likely, not guaranteed
