Free & Open Libre Music Production Site Launches


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

  1. Hehe – funny how “Produce the Music” gets one of the smallest sections on the chart!! Even with help this is one of the biggest and most under-rated areas of music, everything else pales in comparison.

    1. Something tells me that the steps are not scaled according to the time/effort investment. And for that matter, no two musicians are going to have the same trials at each step.

  2. This is pretty cool – I’ve resisted making the transit to Linux because I was unsure of the best path to be able to produce music on that platform, this gives a decent thumbnail of some directions to explore. Awesome!

  3. Been using Xubuntu/JACK/Ardour for a couple of years on a computer I built specifically for music production. Yes, very steep learning curve, but is very satisfying producing a track with freeware of comparable quality to one produced by someone who spent thousands on their software.

  4. It’s perfect time to make some plans for the future and it’s time to be happy.
