    I just stumbled on this Fedora Musician's Guide on the Fedora website:
    Fedora 16 Musician's Guide
    Fedora 18 Musician's Guide

    It appears to be a step-by-step guide on how to setup Fedora for multi-track recording.
    This includes:
    • Sound Cards
    • Audio Connections
    • Sample Rates, Sample Formats, Bit Rate
    • Bit Rates
    • Pulseaudio, JACK, Phonon
    • Latency
    Audio Software:
    • Audacity
    • Digital Audio Workstations
    • Ardour
    • Qtractor
    • Rosegarden
    • FluidSynth
    • Super Collider
    • Lilypond
    • DNU Solfedge

    Its been over 12 years since I recorded and music, but I plan to build an amateur studio one day and start recording again. I would love to use Linux for my studio software and it appears Fedora may be a good option.

    I have also heard about UbuntuStudio as well.
    Seems like there are some nice options other than Mac and Windows

    Great thread, thank you for sharing it. I think I will look into these programs some time soon.

    No problem. I always recorded with Windows and Cakewalk Sonor, but its been a long time and a lot has changed. Its funny, most of the recording gear is pretty much the same: Mics, mixing boards, input/output hardware, but software has changed a lot.
    I would love to build a dedicated computer just for recording in Linux.
