I recently ditched WIndows XP because of its shittyness and the hard drive failure, so I moved over to Ubuntu Linux. Any Linux users out there that know some good DAWs (Digital Audio Workstation)? Ones on the Ubuntu software center would be nice.
Literally the only supported (Somewhat good) daw for Ubuntu is "Ubuntu Studio" Although it's not good at is seems (But it's the only daw for Ubuntu that you wont take a freaking lot of time for installation)
(Generic signature goes here)
I don't know about other DAWs, but I've seen Ableton Live run within Ubuntu using Wine.
The biggest problem that I noticed, what that offline activation was required.
I don't know is those are Ubuntu specific, but those work on Linux systems and were designed by the Linux community as a free alternative to commercial software. Later on were ported to Windows but originally those are Linux apps.
Audacity - a sound editor and multi-track, clone of Cool Edit/ Adobe Audition.
LMMS - a free cross-platform alternative to commercial programs like FL Studio.

Pretty much the best open source DAW I have ever seen.
Or you can run Win program under WINE wrapper. FL Studio, Cubase, Modplug and some other work fine.
+1 for Ardour and Mixbus. I wouldn't recommend LMMS for anything serious, much like audacity it's more of a toy. Also disregard everything that the Ubuntu studio guy said, you don't need that distro to do audio.

I'm sorry sir, I tend to disagree. I do everything I do in LMMS :p
I'm going by the mainstream route and name it here. (Although Ardour seems worth of trying out, that's what I'm gonna do now).

Yeah, it's a good sound editor, but does that mean it's a good daw for working on big projects? Apples and oranges.

Many on this forum can't tell the different between a DAW and a sound editor.
Rosegarden, alternative of Finale and Sibelius on Linux, it's a sequencer (MIDI pattern and score), and free!
Anyone has problem with Linux setup can PM me. I have experience in configuration and troubleshooting DAWs and VSTi in Ubuntu, Xubuntu, Mint, Debian and Arch.
