this is a new release i have posted, it is ambient/techno/electronica with expiramental leanings. it is free to download/share/stream. i'm posting here to show an example of open source music, made on open source software. it was all done in ubuntu, with audacity (editing, recording, mixing, mastering), modplug tracker (run through wine for composition), and line6usb drivers for a recording interface.
when i first installed linux i was very anxious about finding a new audio set-up to compose and record music by. it took me months to even figure out how to create an audio workstation out of ubuntu. after a year of using ubuntu for my musical projects i can say it is one of the fastest, most versatile OS's i've ever used for such purposes. between jack, ingen, modplug (for vst), and LADSPA i am able to generate any sound my mind could conceive.
to give an example of the powerfulness of my setup; i prefer to build soft synth sounds module by module. starting with a simple wave generator i create a few seconds of sound. then via VST and LADSPA i am able to further sculpt the sound in nearly any manner imaginable. this is something that was too CPU intensive on my previous machines to be useful (it would easily cause system freezes or program crashes on win XP to do the same tasks).
