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.

Perhaps $1000 would make Ardour more competitive more quickly, if you put it in a brown paper bag and give it to the right person. (Not me, I'm too busy and too expensive)

You were kind of vague about why Ardour falls short. Were you just concerned that it's not finished ? Or are there things Nuendo does for you that aren't on Ardour's TODO list ? I personally don't know much about audio, I spent a few hours tinkering with CE2K to get a feel for what's expected at the low end, but the high end is mostly a mystery to me.
