Music creation on GNU/Linux

Any music producers around? What do you use to make music on GNU/Linux?

I know about a few programs such as rosegarden, wired (that I never actually gotten to work, though I should try again) and LMMS (Linux Multi Media Studio) which aims to be as friendly and powerful as proprietary FL Studio (at least some day).

Of all of the above I've found LMMS to be the easiest to grasp and get started making music. The only problem is that the built in generators and samples aren't something to encite a "wow" effect out of anyone. I like trance music which requires a sound to be absolutely perfect, professional sounding and smooth..

I haven't had much time to play with it, thus me being rather slow at learning some of these available options, but I'd welcome any pointers, thoughts and advice nevertheless.

Thanks

I had a look into audacity, which looks quite cool and seems really good. Anyway, I didn't use my 303 for quite a while, and for real production I should try to get that Midi-port for my sound-card.

Yes audacity is a great

Yes audacity is a great program. I've used it a bit even on windows two years ago and it was really nice.

It is just for sound editing and processing and not so much for generating and composing samples into patterns and structure, as it is done for electronic music.

Jokosher

You may find Jokosher interesting once it has been finnished, it's a project based around LUGRadio and aims for ease of use.

That's another audio editor?

Judging from screenshots it looks pretty cool. Gotta put it on my candidates list. Smiling

Thanks for a suggestion.

I actually gave AGNULA a try

I actually gave AGNULA a try briefly. I think it's called differently now though, something like "Demudi". It has lots of cool tools, but to be honest I'd prefer installing programs per my own choice on the main distro installation.

I might give a few more music production distros a try though, at least to see what is available and taste the programs to know what to download on my main distro.

Thanks for the suggestion
