You should grasp that you just don't want a mackintosh and a few overpriced application (Cubase etc) to start out creating music. If you've got associate Ubuntu installation on your pc there square measure various free applications to start out creating music. initially a basic audio card is comfortable, you'll upgrade later to some USB audio module if you think that that you just want higher sound quality and different capabilities. Even MIDI keyboard isn't necessary within the starting (and if you discover trackers square measure your issue, then you would possibly not even want them).

How complicated music you're ready to create is settled by the process power of you machine. If you've got some straightforward netbook, don't expect miracles. Too several tracks, samples, instruments and effects, and you may notice that machine cannot sustain. If you've got hyper-threading quadcore i7 with sixteen GB of memory and smart sound card, you'll get terribly artistic. in fact bear in mind this: range of tracks, layers, instruments and effects isn't a live of fine music. All i'm locution is that miserable hardware might limit your creativeness.

Easiest way to line up all necessary software system is to confirm that you just have partner, backports and Medibuntu repositories activated so issue
sudo apt-get install ubuntustudio-audio
from commandline. this may install most stuff you may want and doubtless various applications you are doing essentially want. however this manner obligatory stuff is put in and organized that saves ton of hassle.

Amongst of these applications there's UNIX system multimedia system Studio (LMMS) that is admittedly smart sequencer – considering that it's free. it's several predetermined instruments and samples, and you'll add your own if you want.

There is one application that's not put in since it's not in Ubuntu repositories. Sunvox may be a extremely fascinating synthesizer/tracker, that you just will transfer from its own webpage. there's a Debian package that is simple to put in in Ubuntu (with dpkg, of course).

MIDI works in Ubuntu too, therefore you'll enter your MIDI keyboard and connect it to LMMS. generally this might want complicated operations with Jack if you're exploitation another application.
Remember that trendy trackers, sequencers and synthesizers square measure quite complicated, therefore learning curve is steep initially. Even with tutorials, examples and manuals it's a frightening task. And it takes lots of experimentation and skill to know however all those small bits mix and have an effect on one another.

It helps lots if grasp somebody World Health Organization has expertise with this type of software system. And you ought to have some rudimentary data of music theory, of course.
Best thing during this case is, that if you discover out that this can be not your issue, it didn't price you any further.

Ubuntu 12.04 Top Tweaks

Ubuntu 12.04 Top Tweaks

Ubuntu 12.04 is here and I’ve been using it for almost a month now. It’s the Long Term Support version so it’s going to be around for many years to come. Also Canonical, the company behind Ubuntu, is doing a fantastic job of getting Ubuntu pre-installed on PC’s in favour of Windows. However, there are some significant changes to the UI that Ubuntu has introduced in the past year or so that take some getting used to. Here are some tips to get the most out of this latest version with the minimum sweat.


As TweakUI is to Windows, Unsettings is to Ubuntu 12.x. You need it, trust me. You can do any of the following if you want to (all option, hey, you might even like the New Way, somebody has to):
  • Disable the global menu
  • Disable overlay scrollbars
  • Add items to the systray whitelist
  • Tweak the launcher look and feel
  • Customise the ‘Start button’ (Dash)
  • Tweak fonts (size, antialiasing, etc.)
  • Put icons back on the desktop
Things I did straight away: disable the overlay scrollbars (these are a boon on a tiny netbook display but not worth the hassle if you have the screen real estate) and reduce the size of the icons on the launcher bar (mitigating the extra screen used by having nice old skool scroll bars).
In order to get Unsettings:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:diesch/testing
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install unsettings

Managing Icons in the Launcher Bar

This isn’t obvious. I’ve seen a bazillion posts talking about adding items to the Desktop in Ubuntu 11 and 12, but not to the launcher bar (that bar on the left with the icons, a.k.a. the Unity bar). It’s easy, once you know. Go to the Dash and start your app. This will show the icon for the app that you wanted in the launcher bar. Now right-click on the icon in the launcher bar and select ‘Lock to Launcher’. Now, when you close the app window, you still have an icon there to launch it again. The corollary applies (and is somewhat more intuitive) – you can remove icons that you might hardly use (like LibreOffice icons) just by right-clicking on the icon the launcher bar and selecting ‘Unlock from Launcher’.
