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.

Freebirth does work. Alas, it isn't maintained and it could definitely use a File Save function. But it has great sound and is very easy to use.

My apologies, I thought I had written "Thanks" in there somewhere... I also didn't think my message was an ad hominem attack, I'm sorry you took it like that. So, following your advice, I'm going out now.
