I'm still very new to Linux Audio Workstations 
(I've been a Cakewalk/Sonar/SoundForge user for 
years), so please forgive me if the question seems 
very basic...

I'd like to build a computer to take with me for 
live gigs that can replace sound module racks (do 
softsynth/sample playback, multi-timbral, 
polyphony, etc.).  In other words can it replace 
an Alesis QSR, a Kurzweil K2000RS and a Korg TR? 
Can I do this and still have great 

So the question is can a Linux DAW do this?  If 
yes, what are the specs for such a machine?
CPU?  RAM?  Motherboard?  Sound card (very 
important, eh)?

Thanks to all who post!
