Hello Everyone! Jeramiah Ross here from New Zealand, hope your all well and doing ok through COVID.
During lockdown, I had time to go deep into this new world of micro-computers and linux and open source audio, It’s been a really exciting time for me! I have done lots with sound/creating since a young age, It is my life and more than likley will be to it is no longer.
So, Patchbox OS with the hardware is very very good…I have been telling and showing everyone here.
But, The first thing people are going to want to know is what DAW is best…Open source DAWs are great but Bitwig is very close to what most people are using (ie Ableton). Pure Data, SuperCollider, modep,Terminal, IP, Github, configs and loading in Module’s is or could be overwhelming for most .Actually building the Pi’s and getting them working. Flashing SSD drives ect… It’s a process.
Transitions into new operating systems (both, Linux, Pi’s & the human interaction/processes) needs some sort of explanation…a welcome mat of sorts…in a way in that makes sense to Musicians and Artists. otherwises its hours, days needed for Tutorials, Config, Deep Understanding…
Being a Musician/Composer myself and very lucky blessed with very deep understanding of Computer, Linux, Hardware, Synth , Signal, Modulation, Playing acoustic instruments world…I want to help in this process…
What would the community here, (including it’s creators) suggest or agree on is the best out of the box DAW, Ardour is the only thing I have seen that feels right on the Linux platform unless I am missing something, Audacity is fine as a wave editor with those sorts of "“functions”, But in terms of Protools, Cubase and Ableton Live users, https://ardour.org/ feels slightly familiar.
I have been looking deeply into LV2 as a new format to work with DAW’s, It’s very promising to make stuff with that’. And worth a investment I feel personally. It talks to itself nicely…and mostly put together with C but im sure there will be a Interpreter around…haven’t got that far yet! anyway before I go off topic…What are your thoughts around this?
