product description

Are you interested in creating, recording and mixing your own music with Linux? If so, then you've found the right book. Linux Music & Sound is an in-depth introduction to recording, storing, playing and editing music and sound on a Linux system. Musician/programmer Dave Phillips has reviewed dozens of Linux music and sound applications and presented his top picks in this one-of-a-kind volume.

In concise, easy-to-understand English, this book demystifies the Linux audio system set-up, describes basic and advanced use of the system, and profiles the broad range of sound and music applications and development software available for Linux.

The CD-ROM includes all of the software mentioned in the book, including MIDI applications, digital audio and music notation software, games and utilities. The CD also holds an electronic version of the book with live links to hundreds of Internet resources.

You'll also find out about digital audio basics, the hardware you need to get started, and configuring Linux for sound. Don't spend hundreds of dollars on applications that you can get for free--let Linux Music & Sound be your guide to the world of computer and electronic music under Linux.
