just getting my ubuntustudio iso now. i think ardour or something is the audio editor. is there something out there (free?) to isolate instruments? and how about vocals. i tried voice trap, but didnt like results enuf. are this windows/wine things, or is code platform irrelevant? like, can i use directx vst. are there linux plugins if so?

giving xubuntu test run right now. package manager showed a few things for ubuntustudio search (desktop not one of them tho). but these LADSPA and DSSI plugins, they replace my vst and directx? sry, waiting for reply on how to install programs so cant test nothing myself.

Yes, they are audio plugins much like VST. There is a thread kicking around here by Stochastic on how to use VST plugins in linux.

To install programs simply check them off in the Synaptic package manager and hit Apply.

Ardour RULES!

A parametric or multi-band equalizer is what you need for that, but there is no way you will ever completely isolate one instrument in a recording from the rest of the band. We hear different instruments, but our ears, as well as signal processors, are only reacting to one sound wave.
