How to setup

Step 01
Preparation


Welcome

This instructional guide outlines the techniques I use when making high quality music and other audio on the Ubuntu/Linux platform. It is also a quick reference that is particularly useful when various hardware and software components need to work together.
Although
this guide discusses a specific set of products that I have thoroughly tested, the principles of getting similar components to work together on other Linux-based platforms may require minor modifications.

Although it is possible to install software intended for the Linux platform by downloading the software from various distribution websites on the Internet, I recommended that you use your distributions package manager. If you are uncertain about what that means you can find detailed instructions on installing new software on the Ubuntu/Linux platform here.
