Probably going to use to build games and apps.

I'd like to learn enough C + Ruby to be weirdly deadly.

Going to be using LMMS / Ardour to make music to stick onto my bandcamp.

Going to be using (i don't know yet, calibre?) for writing ebooks for publication. Learning ebooks. Useful ebooks.

@minimaldotclick I'd say avoid using LMMS if you can. There's a long answer for this, but the gist is that it their core sound engine is basically somewhere between objectively bad and just broken (and beyond repair). Don't let the pretty UI trick you.

Ardour might have it's quirks, but it's much more solid than LMMS.

@paul good advice on LMMS, thanks. I'm moving from Ableton & Logic which I have extensive experience with to something more... open. The only one that was close was Ardour.

@minimaldotclick @paul Just going to mention Reaper here. It’s not OS or free per se, but it’s very actively developed, runs on Linux, and the price is very reasonable for the quality of the product. I’m coming from Logic and Renoise.


@flowb @paul

I love Reaper and have used it before. It’s not open and so cannot be part of my setup here.

If it wasn’t for that I’d use it in a heartbeat.
