meant to post this a few weeks ago.  just way too busy.  as of 12/24/16 it has ben 1 year (now plus) using only linux with no mac to fall back on and more specifically Bodhi.  It has been a sweet experience; just wish i did not have such a bad crazy year so as to learn more about a couple of apps and to try to figure another 1 or 2 that i needed for various uses.

 

Intentions were good but time was limited for experimentation and growth.

 

anyway - that is the name of that tune.

 

:-))))





A big thank you to everyone who contributes to Bodhi Linux

Way to go!  I continue to just tinker, partly because moving my spouse to Linux feels like a non-starter, partly because I used Windows at work anyway, and partly because my music studio PC is Windows and swapping that over to Linux looks like it would be a bigger deal than I want to get involved in.

Thanks but years ago when i was 'into' the music thing and had my own studio i just had to run macs with Digital performer and all of the synths etc.   windows would not cut it and had way too many sound issues and glitches.

 

linux is possible but there are a few things that i would probably stumble over trying to set it up.

 

but since I am old and out of it now i guess i just do not have the time or patience to even try to get it working.

I used to record in Windoz - meh, so much $$$.  Everything you want, oh, just pay a couple hundred dollars...or thousand... "No thanks"

 

This is my first time setting up a recording/music production/DAW system in LInux - a lot of flexibility - but that also means a fair amount of learning curve.  Glad I enjoy learnings and thankfully there are active forums. :)

 

Glad to hear you have been on Linux a year!  Congrats!  This is roughly my fifth - basically, I could no longer stand the direction windoz was heading...subscription based everything (same thing that nailed Adobe's coffin shut for me).  No control over updates?  I mean, what is that?  Oh, an automatic update borked my WiFi...well, hopefully MS releases a fix otherwise, guess I'm out WiFi until I get another adapter, etc, etc, etc.

 

Basically, I made sure to nuke any windoz crutches I may have had around my house, booted Bodhi and said, "No looking back - if you break it, it is broken until you fix it".  That motivation worked for me.  I still don't know anything really, but I'm slowly getting somewhere.  Just picked up the Linux Bible - hoping to dive deeper.

 

Congrats again - it's a great journey to be on :)

You can do it!  Just takes some understanding of routing and finding replacements for VSTs, etc (if needed).
