Subject: RE: Recording Software
Audacity is fine for simple edits of mono or stereo material, but
Ardour's multitrack recording and editing capabilities are in a completely different league. It's worth learning but you do need a low-latency or real time kernel if you want to do overdubs or build up recordings a track at a time, or you'll get too much monitoring delay. The best way to install it is to get the whole AVLinux distribution - when I did, everything just worked, after I'd spent about a week messing with 64studio and Ubuntu Studio and getting nowhere. I have a separate PC for it, but actually it's good for ordinary office stuff too, and the same PC even dual-boots Windows.
