I'm considering switching for Windows to Linux for my audio stuff. I have a
1) I have some Cubase projects, and I mostly care about the midi sequencing.
If I export them to midi files, will I be able to restore most of the
information in Linux?
2) This is my first install. Can you suggest a distro for a 1.6 GHz Athlon
machine that would be good and stable for audio yet not be too hard to set
up and get working? Preferably something with a 2.6 kernel. I was going to
go with Mandrake, but I really don't know. Definitely something like Debian
or Gentoo is too involved for me right now.
3) I have a Soundblaster Audigy. Should I look into getting a new
soundcard? What is a good internel or external box that is supported well?
4) Can you recommend a set of software that will be enough to get started
with? I know that there are many many options and I would just appreciate a
little direction so I don't get discouraged. I just want to record vocals,
record midi and use my synthesizer, mix them together, and process it all
with some plugins.
That's all, and thanks for any information.
