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.

VST

VST under Linux is possible, but the main goal, in the long run, is to get better performance and co-operation between tools.
I would rather use LADPSA, pay the price of sound quality (in some cases), and gain performance!
Already now Ardour and LADPSA is fully usable. With the full envelope-support, and all the plannes features fully implemented, it will easily beat Cooledit, and possibly protools, at least on a home-setup.
Cubase is a MIDI-sequencer wich got audio-features. Ardour is a 'Pro-tools beater', and doesn't attempt to compete with Cubase. For that you can (in the future, at least), run Ardour and Rosegarden in sync through Jack. How does that compare to Cubase and/or Protools, and what is the minimum system req for doing similar things on win/os x?
