thanks for the reply!
My needs would be:
Mainly tracking (by now up to 8 channels at given time).
Mixing and monitoring - Yep
Realtime fx - also yes.
Tried AVlinux and found it to be pretty cool, but its 32 bit and till now
I'm used to 64 bit and wouldlike to keep using the more advanced PC
technology. (Finally when Protools 11 takes the leap into 64bit technology
it would be sad to see my Linux system going backwards).
Heard good things about Arch in audio use too. Anyone got experience with
Arch use for pro audio?
