First off a merry Christmas to all and a happy New Year for 2014. Hopefully yours will be filled with lots of good music and Linux to help you make it. Excitement builds as we open our gifts and discover what we can do with them. I decided to start this blog to share some of the presents given by this great and malleable operating system I have come to love and cherish over the years passed. You might use Linux now already, for business or pleasure, but did you know there are plenty of really good programs available to help you make quality sounding audio productions. Having heard some really good tunes lately from artist who use Linux as their platform of choice, it fills the geek heart. True, great flexibility comes with great complexity, but those willing to venture beyond point and click can create great symphonies of creative and technological splendor. I’m not only referring to EDM music but also to Metal and Rock Pop productions. It’s a very elaborate subject to venture into but it’s always good to have a partner to show the path less trodden. May you enjoy the way as much as I do.
