Linux on the desktop


#182

I noticed that recently, especially nice was that includes a bunch of software I had previously installed via the AUR.

Yeah it seems like the collection must be relatively new? Lots of packages in here I’ve never heard of before too, I’ve been having fun poking around: https://www.archlinux.org/groups/x86_64/pro-audio/

Like sweep: http://www.metadecks.org/software/sweep/

Feels like the first time I fired up puredyne, lots of stuff to explore!

I’ve been collating links relating to Linux audio on my personal wiki for a while now, might be interesting for some: https://wiki.thingsandstuff.org/Audio. Some topics are broken out into their own pages which can be found via the menu at the top.

For anyone who uses IRC, check out Freenode #opensourcemusicians for general chat, #lad for software development, #jack for JACK chat, #archlinux-proaudio, #lv2 (the plugin format), #kxstudio (Debian based distro/repos), #lau (smaller general chat), #alsa, #pulseaudio, and #audacity. Other related channels include ##audio, ##music-electronics, #audiovisual, ##xenharmonic (microtonal orientated), #RedditAudio, and #pipewire.
