linux based

intro

First of all, Linux audio is a bit different than Windows. There is no Killer application like cubase, which has all the features you need builtin (although Ardour is the one application which tends to get near) . Nevertheless, Linux audio is really powerful beause of the audio and midi I/O routing capabilities. Basically, you can build stream chains between programs, routing the signals as you like. So the possibility to combinate programs IS Linux audio. This is accomplished through JACK. The Jack audio connenction kit does its magic upon other technologies like ALSA, OSS4, pulse audio. All have their place, some do the same thing; Many things to know (and to explore) here. See Background technologies. Generally, if you click an application in audio, jack will be started in background for you (except for the ones that do not need it) You can also start jack (via jack control) before starting any audio applications. This gives you more control. Samplerate, etc.

Reverb. REV1 is a reworked version of the reverb originally developed for Aeolus. Its character is more 'hall' than 'plate', but it can be used on a wide variety of instruments or voices. It is not a spatialiser - the early reflections are different for the L and R inputs, but do not correspond to any real room. They have been tuned to match left and right sources to some extent.

I would recommend trying the DSSI synth plugins, which make songs considerably easier to create and manage. The fluidsynth, sampler and xsynth DSSI plugins are especially useful.

Qtractor

<html><img src="Qtractor-screenshot4.png">

<html><img src="qtractor.png">

a digital audio and MIDI multi-track composition and arranger software application. Besides its name, it should be noted, Qtractor is not a music “tracker” type of program. However, it has all the potential to do that job, if needed.

Qtractor is a non-destructive sequencer and arranger. It does not affect, alter or modify in any way, the audio and/or MIDI files that are displayed as Clip Objects. What is destructive are files resulting from capture and recording operations, and explicit changes made through specialized Clip editing (e.g., MIDI Editor).

written in C++ with the Qt4 framework.

Currently the Qtractor project is simply the hobby of one developer. Development was started April 2005, initially as a Qt3 application. Since October 2006, it is officially a Qt4 application.

Qtractor is natively hardwired and exclusive to the JACK Audio Connection Kit infrastructure, and the ALSA sequencer for MIDI, thus currently being a Linux-only application.

reaper

I use Reaper live all the time to play backing tracks and then input monitor my guitar with effects on another track. the input monitoring is so darn effective, it’s really up to your machine and interface as to how low you can get your latency down to. I’m using a late 2009 I7 920 based PC with a 6-7 year old EMU 1820M and can get pretty low latency (~6-7ms). REAPER is also my favorite studio DAW too. The takes and comping functions are so much better now The best thing is, the whole development was carried out while listening to the users, on a continuous base! That’s one of the best things in Reaper… pitch envelopes are AWESOME. One thing that always annoyed me about previous versions was that you had to right click + drag just to make a marquee selection. Well now at least there’s a new option in preferences to make Left click + Drag do the same thing. In other words Now you can make it behave like literally Every other program out there (to an extent, anyways). • REAPER is so much more efficient that Live (my other DAW). In REAPER I can run several huge Kontakt instruments and still track with minimal latency. For me REAPER doesn’t replace Live, but it certainly replaces Logic. there is a real time investment required. It DOES do a few basic things differently. The more comfortable you are with integrating keyboard shortcuts into your workflow, the better off you will be. FWIW I found the tutorials at Groove3 really helpful. Also, check out some of the UIs offered in the user forums. RADO v4the bone of the best DAW interfaces I have ever used. There is a feature in Reaper that I really like. It’s the feature that turns on and turns off VST’s right under the M,S buttons. When I’m doing a mixdown of a track I click on those buttons endlessly as if I’m performing and I generating remixes so no two mix downs are ever a like. I know other DAWS can do it but Reaper does it effortlessly on one of the slowest laptops I have and have never had the laptop or hard drive hiccup when performing these mix downs in realtime. First impressions are huge, especially when trying to get users coming from a different DAW. So while Reaper can behave however you’d like, the default settings should be immediately familiar. Another awkward thing is when loading a plug-in, one has to open the FX dialog, then open the load plugin dialog, then find the plugin. Too many steps. I know that it’s configurable, but the average user isn’t going to know how to do that. as with most things in REAPER, you can configure it to work as you wish. I save a Track Template and/or FX chains for each VST and load them by right cicking on the FX button. Or you can keep the FX browser window open and docked, and drag and drop VSTs onto tracks. Guess you know this, but I just wanted to show the uninitiated that there is usually a way to customize REAPER to your requirements. as someone who has used everything out there, and protools since it was in beta, i can tell you reaper is amazing, especially for the price. if you need a basic nuts and bolts daw, this is it. and from what i see in v4, wow….. too bad every friggin studio and post house is avid controlled………… yeah when i have to do large scale sessions, with many inputs and plugs, pt tdm rules. but for 90% of my pro work, reaper would suffice easily….. and i love the pitch and 3d stuff………….. 60 bucks? amazing…

People often mention Reaper as a free VST host, but please note that Reaper is actually commercial software with a 30-day trial period. Although the actual software installation never expires, you should purchase a licence if you use it longer than 30 days (there is however Reaper v0.999 which is still available for free, many thanks to vian for sharing the info in the comments!).
