Playback software for Linux?
I apologize in advance for posting this here since it doesn't really have anything to do with Ardour itself, but this is the best Linux audio forum I know of.
Does anyone know of a Linux based automated playback system? I'm looking for something like SFX from Stage Research, or QLab from Figure 53, but that will run on Linux (and be resonably priced or free). This is software which is designed for multi-channel playback for live theatre productions, and includes features such as fades, cross-fades, delays, MIDI triggers, and playback of multiple sound cues, to multiple speakers at the same time.
SFX costs about $400 for just the software, and only runs on Windows. QLab has a basic version that is free, and an advanced version that only costs a couple hundred dollars, but it only runs on OS X. I'm looking for something that runs well on Linux, natively.
Is there anything out there?
Many great thanks,
