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.

Bah, ProTools has to be the most overrated app in the music industry. There are a lot better software like Samplitude Studio for example.

Software-wise, sure it's got it's flaws. ProTools definitely lacks with MIDI/Synth, but it's not overrated, because I'm not talking about software necessarily. When talking about PT, you really have to mention HD/MIX/TDM. Judging by the app alone isn't going to show it's worth. There's a reason why it's widely used, and it's nothing to do with hype.
