Best website to explain FOSS music making

Postby English Guy » Fri Dec 21, 2012 9:25 pm

Hi

I was talking to a friend about music production & he uses a windows workflow. Does anyone know of a good web page that gives a basic explanation of how & why to make music in a FOSS environment?

Website? Dunno. I too am interested to hear any recommendations here.

For an intro and general overview to FOSS music making, I'd recommend the AVL6 manual.

http://www.bandshed.net/pdf/AV6Manual.pdf

Of course, make them aware of KXStudio and Dreamstudio etc too

They should then have a play with both Ardour and qtractor, decide which suits them best then read the appropriate manual if/as required. The qtractor manual is linked on its homepage and then http://en.flossmanuals.net/ardour/ for Ardour.
Are you new to Linux Audio? This manual explains how to install KXStudio, set up and use JACK, mimimize latency, lists the best Linux AV apps and much more all in a concise and easy to understand format.
