    [YODA MODE ON] Smart guy this Mr. Urs is. [YODA MODE OFF]

    Giving a candy to linux community expecting to recruit buyers.
    But remember Mr. Urs that linux guys like a lot the "free things", ups sorry I meant Open Source things.
    Don't expect to increase your sales too much.

    it doesn't take much effort to build a software for Linux.
    I think he's more trying to test if :
    - it work on end user side
    - there's enough people wanting it.
    - it would make sense to release a commercial build for the platform.

    See it as a test, a poll, there's no question about sales yet...

    I'm a linux guy, and I don't use only free things (+ you're mixing up free, opensource, and free to use...), even there. And my job is what make these "opensource things" not only, not free, but also : pretty damn expensive.

    Some 'new" platform getting attention is ALWAYS good news. You don't have to talk about sales to spoil it. (yesterday you were rantin' about Microsoft monopoly and today about Apple's behavior... don't shoot on new stuff) : the music softwares aren't the same as server or utility tools. Opensource just DON'T work that way. Let the commercial software have a try at it, it won't do any harm.

    Don't believe it ? Android -> based on 90% free software -> + Google -> try to use them without a Gmail account -> meh. (and it's all free of charge)

    I for one am seriously considering forking out for ACE at least when it comes out, even though I'm a cheap skate and freeware lover. :wink: I really like Bazzile and Diva, too. I could make do with Overtone DSP plugins and some of these U-he instruments, EnergyXT with its internal sampler, plus Linux Sampler and CSound. Bitwig will possibly become better and more usable with time, too. It's a start. A rather good one, actually. :wink:

    I have waited for so long and I will have to wait some more to move away from Windows, though. I will continue to make music in Windows, too, just because I have tons of plugins there and I love to work with Reaper. But using both platforms might give me some really interesting results.

    Great times ahead :mates: :wink:

    thats a huge step for Linux and Production.
    i mean there are not a lot Linux Commecial Vsts. i remember Overtone, Inear Display, Loomer? are there more? (commercial ones i mean ...?!)

    @zeus: even one or 2 sales are worth all the hazzle for urs. I mean now that we have Bitwig for Linux urs expecting the Linux Audio Community to grow better and he always was an early adapter of new things in the past.

    No offence... but judging by what you said and how you said it, I take it you're not very knowledgeable about computers, so hardly any authority on the subject? It's a question, not a statement. *yes* I've been into computers since 1983. I grew up with Spectrum, Commodore and Atari later on, making music with it. I've used Windows since 1995 and since 1997 for music. I know Windows to the core and that's why I know it's rubbish. Linux is so much better and it's the future. You just have to know how to set it up and it's getting easier and easier. Don't even think about making music on Linux without installing Jack and RT_PREEMPT Kernel. Do you know what a RT_PREEMPT kernel is? Or Jack for that matter? I could be wrong, but I think you just installed first Ubuntu you could put your hands on, installed Audacity and proclaimed Linux being unusable for audio. On the contrary, it's the best, fastest, most efficient OS for audio of all *available* OSes [BeOS was better]. If you want to try a great distro for those unfamiliar with Linux try this: http://www.bandshed.net/AVLinux.html It comes with RT_PREEMPT kernel, Jack and all the right Linux apps for audio pre-installed. It also comes with all other apps like GIMP, Firefox, LibreOffice, even OpenShot for video editing if I remember correctly, so there's not much left to install. :wink: I use my customised Debian installation since I know how to make it work properly.

    This is a bit off-topic, but somebody might find it interesting. I found Reaper for Linux in the pre-release forum on the Cockos site. It's v4.61 and dated this May 27th... :wink: It's only X64 version, but if you use Linux there's no need for 32-bit version as Linux has been available in 64-bit since more than 10 years ago and it's well "polished". :wink:

    Cheers :mates: !

    Yes articstrom, but it all depends on hardware makers to adapt their interfaces, midi keyboards, controllers and more things to the linux platform. And with the time that has been linux out, and very few makers added linux drivers to their catalog, it will be difficult to consider linux as an alternative.

    I was one of the beta testers of this amazing OS when it came out, which was really promising, but as always, it was not supported by companies and it died.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/BeOS

    Nothing will beat what big companies choose to support.

    I've got a RME HDSP 9652 and TC Electronic Konnekt 48, both working in Linux. However the drivers are developed by the third party so some features are not supported [like I can't use the mixer for TCK48 as it's Windows and OS-X app only, so I use a laptop with W7 to control its mixer] mostly because the manufacturers keep the driver code secret. :snuffy: Linux has a bit of a chicken/egg problem there, yes. If the manufacturers started making drivers for Linux like Nvidia and AMD do that would break another ice and more software developers would jump on board Linux boat and release their commercial software for it.

    That said, RME works great and the 3rd party "Total Mix" works great, too. So I wholeheartedly recommend RME cards for use with Linux. Or M-Audio. M-Audio cards work better with these 3rd party drivers than with M-Audio's drivers! :bleh: I've got one Audiophile card lying around and I tested it without any problems. :wink:

    No problem. Feel free to open another thread, or better since you're the OP, rename it to something like U-He Products Linux Betas maybe :wink:
