So, music production on linux. A while ago I talked about using , and . This is what I found out:

- Ardour is great for big projects and it really comes down to getting used to it. It's powerful and you can do almost anything there, although I still think it slows my flow down. An upside for me is its integration with zynFusion (a new UI for zynaddsubfx).

- LMMS is fast and dirty, and I see myself opening it more frequently than ardour, as I can make a quick beat and throw samples everywhere and also use good synth (with classic zynaddsubfx).

- Rosegarden have not worked properly so far. Maybe with more patience I could set it up, I don't know, but it seems buggy.

I'm also using for musical notation stuff and i love it

funkwhale looks great so far... there's tons of good chill out / ambient music already
