Hope that Fedora works out for you - as others have already said, it's
possible to get linux audio working on any distro, but it is more/less
work depending on how well your components are supported.
> Yes that's pretty much exactly what I'm saying. And what I've been trying to
Regarding Linux Sampler - I have never had any issues with it at all
(Debian and Ubuntu). I just followed the instructions on the LS site
and compiled/installed from source. There are several libraries that
need to be compiled/installed before it will work, but it is well
documented on the site. You probably do need to get jack working first
though.. I would recommend qsampler as the GUI frontend to LS.
Regarding creating/editing samples/banks - I'm not sure what you are
after. My workflow (if I wanted to get sample-based instruments into
fluidsynth) would probably be:
1) run jack (using qjackclt)
2) Linux-based synths: zynaddsubfx/bristol/AMS/phasex/... others? with
audio output routed (via jack) to:
3) time-machine (note - if you wanted to make "wet" samples, you could
route the audio output from the synth through something like jack-rack
to run some ladspa effects before routing on to time machine).
4) load audio snippets recorded using time machine into:
5) Audacity - edit samples, normalise, maybe add effects?
6) Make soundfonts using Swami (or if using linuxsampler as playback
engine maybe make gig files using gigedit, or maybe sfx files with
hand-editing a text file).
