Hello psybient friends, Please let me know if you are someone who likes to use open source audio editor or operating system to work on your music. Personally, I like to use the Reaper software on a customized operating system (Arch Linux). In order to make Reaper function on the unix-like operating system, the Wine package is used to run the program and VST plugin. To route the sound output, jack audio is used in combination with wineasio, qjackctl, cadence, ALSA, etc. This allows me to have extremely low latency and full usage of the typical ASIO output including MIDI. By recompiling the Linux kernel using special patch, it is possible to reconfigure the scheduler optimizer for audio purposes (instead of default server configuration). This way, latency can be reduced further for real-time purposes. Now I have switched to this setup for almost a year already, it is the only setup I use now. It works very well and I am very satisfied with the level of audio control I get. Some of the newest VST plugins may not work, but most robust plugins designed in the past work excellently, 64bit or 32bit is your choice. If anyone is considering a setup on alternative OS like GNU-Linux or BSD, I highly recommend to do it! The time has already been ripe! Let me know your thoughts..
