A new community-driven online project that focuses on promoting music creation and composition using free & open source software has launched, Libre Music Production.
The goal of the site it to provide hands-on guides, tutorials, articles and news updates that will help users find and use free and open music software.
“A wonderful and wide range of options exist for people who want to create music with Free/Libre/Open Source Software,” says Gabriel Nordeborn, Co-Founder of LMP. “However, a single resource to bring it all together has been lacking. This is no longer the case.”
Libre Music Production features articles on the basic steps in a FLOSS music workflow:
- Selecting an audio-orientated Linux distribution
- Getting the right hardware for recording
- Understanding JACK, the all-important Linux audio server
- Producing music with FLOSS software
