Linuxaudio.org is a not-for-profit consortium of libre software projects and artists, companies, institutions, organizations, and hardware vendors using Linux kernel-based systems and allied libre software for audio-related work, with an emphasis on professional tools for the music, production, recording, and broadcast industries.
We are happy to announce the next issue of the Linux Audio Conference (LAC), May 9-12, 2013 @ IEM, the Institute of Electronic Music and Acoustics, in Graz, Austria.
This year's conference is hosted by IEM, Graz, in cooperation with local artists and FLOSS enthusiasts.
The Institute of Electronic Music and Acoustics (IEM) at the University of Music and Performing Arts Graz is considered Austria's leading institution in computer music, acoustics and audio engineering and has gained international reputation for its research on spatial audio and its artistic production and research.
IEM has been embracing Linux audio as a production and research environment since the mid-1990s, and has contributed to FLOSS/Linux projects, amongst others by providing drivers for multichannel audio interfaces and hosting the Pure Data community portal and mailing lists.
The Linux Audio Conference is the international conference about Open Source Software for music, sound and other media with Linux as the main platform.
2012 marks the 10th anniversary of the event and it is the first time the LAC takes place in the United States.
The Linux Audio Conference is an international conference that
brings together musicians, sound artists, software developers and
researchers, working with Linux as an open, stable, professional
platform for audio and media research and music production. LAC includes
paper sessions, workshops, and a diverse program of electronic music.
The upcoming 2012 conference will be hosted at CCRMA, Stanford
University, on April 12-15. The Center for Computer Research in Music
and Acoustics (CCRMA) at Stanford University is a multi-disciplinary
facility where composers and researchers work together using
computer-based technology both as an artistic medium and as a research
tool. CCRMA has been using and developing Linux as an audio platform
Skipped a couple of months in order to get ready for LAC2011. But now that LAC2011 is over I can pick up the monthly round-ups again. I'm not going to cover the months that I skipped so I'll move on with what happened last month, the month of May.
More than a month overdue... It's getting busier
at work (we're in the middle of a reorganization) and also I've spent
quite some time on making music. And LAC2011 is coming closer, I'm
going to do two workshops so I had to prepare my abstracts. Hope you
have a nice read anyway, next time I'll try to publish the round-up a
bit earlier (well, have to hurry up then already...).
Linux Audio Monthly Round-Up #7 - February 2011
The holiday season is over and I actually took advantage of it by not working on the Linux Audio Monthly Round-Up #6 but by making music. With the help of Leigh Dyer's outstanding seq24 tutorials I'm trying to master seq24 and so far I'm really enthusiastic about this sequencer. I've started remixing an older track of mine and seq24 has already proven itself a very valuable tool.
But I did read up on relevant mailinglists and forums to keep in pace with the developments in Linux Audio Land. And December did yield some interesting topics, like the RT_GROUP_SCHED option (cgroups) discussion on the Jack-Devel mailinglist and the refutation that CPU frequency scaling has no use for low-latency real-time audio, and then there was the sheer amount of music made with Linux of course!
