(I'll bet you thought I was going to say "more cowbell!" huh?)
Today a friend of mine showed me RoseGarden on the Linux platform. It looks like quite the package. I'm wondering if anyone here has had any experience with professional audio on the Linux platform?
I already researched and learned that I can run Kontakt and all my other VSTs in standalone mode in Linux, then the whole "Jack" audio engine in Linux is modular, so its all basically a huge, real-time ReWire environment. That sounds really badazz to me.
Anyway, RoseGarden includes professional audio and midi multitracking, notation, effects, etc, etc. So I thought it wouldn't hurt giving it a shot. I will still be using Overture and SAW Studio on Windows for final mixing and polishing of the audio mixdown and notation I think, but I'm just so tired of the spyware, adware, underware, viruses and everything else that seems to be an issue with my XP PC running like it's ten years older than it actually is.
I've considered "switching" to Tiger or Jaguar or Leopard or whatever it is on the Apple side, but I wanna see how the whole IBM thing goes before investing there. So, any professional composers out there in Linux? and if so... how is it?
