    Sibelius (or at least file format support in Rosegarden). Good thing is, I am switched completely to Ubuntu. I just have an XP virtual machine with Sibelius in it

    I would be pleased if my Guitarport from Line6 would work with Linux, but I can live without it. I don't even think they support Mac yet, even though they've said they would do for years.

    voted other --> Energy XT
    a) because it is a awesome aplication
    b) because it is currently being ported to linux
    c) because it will be the first host that supports native linux vst. It will already ship with mda's plugins ported to linux. The dev is sure other vsts will get ported to linux as well.. hopefully he is right.
    on the downside, there don't seem to be plans for ladspa and dssi support

    none of the above

    I want VST freed, with native support in our great free studio apps.

    Other than having to use wine for VST, I'm happy with the free native audio apps.

    And You?
    Have you tried seeing if it can be run through WINE?

    Its not a VST host, its a sequencer (I don't like the term VST host anyway), but ProTools would be good. Then again its already in Darwin....sorry...OSX

    Pro-Tools is one reason I would never be only Linux (one of many if I'm honest, I don't see the point in limiting myself for a flawed philosophy)

    Re: Poll for Musician - Proprietary Audio Programs and Linux.

    I have a dedicated semi-pro studio for recording and I am afraid that Linux will never be in there in my lifetime. None of the real industry standard stuff is ported to Linux and I'm not about to try to kludge something together with Wine. Why? I have enough problems without that mess.

    IF Steinberg ported Cubase to Linux and somehow made all the industry-standard VSTi plugins (Waves, Antares, etc.) seamlessly work in it without kludgy emulators, it'd be different -- but that's just not going to happen.

    Additionally, I don't use amateur software on that machine after having some freeware VSTi freak out and nearly blow out my monitors, never mind the general bugginess. Why screw around with junk? Get warez of the real thing.
