Though I'm not as "in the know" as I once was... in all my years
watching shows, talking to bands, hanging with "real" musicians, I've
never once come across anyone using linux besides myself for audio.
This is Chicago btw. I've tried to proselytize but to no avail ;-)

I agree. I've participated in some user groups where Pd, Max/MSP, SC3
and other experimental apps were featured... all on mac or pc. People
are surprised to learn there are even such tools to be found on linux
(yes really). It'd be nice if linux could leech further into the halls
of learning.

The 001 and mbox are pretty much the entry-level standard in the
pro/prosumer market from my experience. Neither one works on linux
afaik.

And ProTools would therefore be the defacto DAW (though Steinberg stuff
probably holds the "bedroom studio" market). When in the studio,
musicians are often presented a hard disk with their "pro-tools session"
on it, in this form it's useless on linux unfortunately.

Hardware and software non-interoperability is probably the #2 reason
(behind the shortage of native audio software) for people NOT switching
to linux.

As a friend recently said; "You can do a hell of a lot more on mac/pc,
but you can do a hell of a lot more for free on linux."

Anyway, the reason I'm responding is to:

1) second the validity of your statements regarding OS representation
(LAU is a pretty insular community, sometimes it feels bigger than it
is)

2) raise a question as to how the message can get out that "linux audio
exists"

3) partially answer my own question :P

About #2... Firstly, I know I often need encouragement to actually get
out there to create and/or perform. But actually taking it to the
streets and demonstrating linux audio would surely help spread the word.
Playing out (if that's your thing) is good for you and also good for
"the cause". I mean the more people see linux-laptops making awesome
sound the more interest will follow.

I'm a teacher and I must admit, I do sneak linux into the classroom
often. Hmm... though I get rather low traffic, I think I'll revamp my
website to more prominently feature linux audio.

http://ruinaudio.com

Hmm... I wonder if Tape Op (a great FREE magazine http://tapeop.com/ )
would accept articles about linux.

Anyway, if anyone has any other ideas about how to increase linux-audio
awareness, I'd be interested to hear.
