Multimedia, AV I wanted to write something about the great progress being carried on linux as OS of choice for a professional Digital Audio Workstation (DAW) since a long time. With the inclusion of the Advanced Linux Sound Architecture (ALSA) into the 2.6 kernels, time has come to extend my experiences to all of you.

I don't know whether it can match a Mac or PC running Cubase but I'll give it a try.
When we're jamming and need to record something we got a P4 with 1 GB RAM a descent amount of HD space, Cubase SX 2.0 on WinXP for that purpose. It sounds great and its very stable but its a wee bit out of my price range for that kind of system at home.
Sure I just upgraded my system to a P4 2.8 GHz machine but Cubase is a bit too expensive for me right now and when I'm already running Linux box at home it might just be that Ardour can handle my needs.
