Hi @ll, I'm interested in getting to know more about MIDI under Linux machines. Especially I need to know if the programs that are available for Linux offer the same or even more options, and if they do their jobs as good as do Cubasis, Logic Audio etc. on Windows machines. Does it pay off to move to Linux? How about softsynths - I like working with SoundFonts (*.SF2) and I have found out that they can be used with some applications under Linux as well as under Windows. What are the Linux-softsynths like? Do they work as good as do their commercial Windows counterparts? My computer (AMD 2000+, 512MB) should be fast enough for this, as far as hardware is concerned. All kinds of hints welcome, thx for Your help. Kind regards, Lutz.
