Topic: GPO on Linux

    GPO on Linux

    I would personally like to see Garritan Personal Orchestra able to work on Ubuntu Linux. And I don't mean in wine. I would like to see a version that could work natively. I would like to get full use of my RAM (instead of being left with about 256 MB after Windows and its processes take over 768 MB of RAM) and my processor. It's just Sibelius and GPO (coupled with a corrupted install of Audacity on my Linux systems) that are holding me back on Windows. I would find this rather nice even if it were to be an out of date version of the libraries (mine already is as I haven't updated it, at least it can save audio files).

    I fully support this!

    GPO, Sibelius, JABB, Cubase SX and the Native Instruments stuff are the only things that are holding me back from switching to Linux and saying goodbye to the DRM/Virus/Vista-madness that will get even worse in the next few years.

    Maybe it will become financially feasable to develop professional audio applications for Linux in a few years... One can always dream...

    If Gary would release the source, I could probably do it at school for my C++ programming class on Ubuntu...

    It's not so much an issue with the plugins themselves, but rather the lack of a Linux native VST host. Every case of using VST on Linux that I've heard involves WINE.

    Lol. Yes, run away.


    I'd be interested to know Tom Crowning's view on this, as i believe he's using linux successfully. It would be useful to know which programmes he finds better to use, and which plugins he uses, with additional info on how easy it is to install and use Linux software.
