Multimedia, AV Browsing Freshmeat tonight, the premier online Linux software repository, I came across to these two great (and brand new) applications, ReBorn and ReZound. Reborn, a Rebirth clone that will soon become open source according to the developer, provides a software emulation of three of Roland's most famous electronic musical instruments. It got me thinking as to how much more viable Linux is today as a professional (or semi-professional) audio platform than it used to be two years ago. Update: On a related multimedia notice, WinAMP 3.0 for Windows was released yesterday.

Check out Ardour, that one's supposed to be capable of multitrack 24/96 recording.

The forgotten ones: There are some more MIDI sequencers of different flavors like Brahms or Jazz, aRts is a modular Synthesizer and then there are of course CSound and PD.

As always, I am a little surprised as why those developers don't join their efforts and work on one sequencer instead of ten and why everyone's so focused on Linux when one could write free audio software also for Windows or MacOS, where you already have decent hardware support and software around it (those MIDI sequencers would be a lot more fun if I could use Dynamo with it).
