Installing Linux & Ardour/using midi controllers?
Yes, I am a complete newb! To Linux and Ardour that is. I've been using Sonar on PC and Reason on Mac for many years.
I am hoping someone can explain the steps to do the following>
Install Linux on a PC that has XP installed. I'd like to Reformat and have a clean install.
Install my DA interface (M-audio)
Configure it so I can use midi controllers (Keyboards, Akai Wind EWI USB, etc)
Also, could I install my VSTs? they are PC only.
Does Ardour have a Softsynth (like the TTS-1 for Cakewalk, etc?)
Sorry for all the questions, I've never even seen Linux in Action, but I would also like to know if my midi/audio latency would be lower than on Windows?
Last question, does Propellerheads Reason work in Linux? If so, what changes would I have to make for it to work?
Thanks so much in advance for your help,
