Linux Audio

Why a Linux Audio Wiki at DIY-Audio?

As we all DIY enthusiasts know, building your own stuff or tweaking what's out there to get the best achievable quality out of it, can be a pretty challenging though satisfying journey.
Linux I'd consider a tweakers paradise. Its openness allows you to do anything with that system - depending on your competence level of course.
As DIY enthusiasts we are not limited to any constraints and limitations that commercial products won't ever get around.
We are able to build solutions, which 100% meet our needs.

At least for me I can say, I don't experience more satisfaction then sitting in front of my self-made audio system. Commercial systems just bore me to death.

The good news, I consider Linux no longer a hackers paradise. It still has its limitations - yes. Though there are Linux distributions, which will easily manageable by a Microsoft Windows or OSX convert, without generating frustration after 5 minutes.
By choosing a Linux system you choose an operating system, which is able to challenge anything else out there in terms of soundquality delivered by a PC.

However - to squeeze most out of a Linux installation, it still needs some hacking. That's why you are here. You'll manage - I promise.

I am not aware of any place on the internet, where you'll find a rather comprehensive collection of Linux-Audio related topics.
I hope you'll find some interesting information over here. I try to be as precise as possible, so that even Linux beginners are able to follow what's described.

The success of a Wiki or any guide is based on its reliability. I consider it a real challenge to accomplish this reliability - and as important - to maintain it - over time.
That's why you're all invited to contribute to these pages and/or to report problems or missing or unclear descriptions.

As it is with all Wiki's, I consider this page Work In Progress.

Many of the described topics and recommendations will be based on my personal knowledge, preferences, experiences and opinions - I'd really appreciate, if you'd contribute your own findings to the Wiki.

Note1: Most of the information will refer to Debian based systems, such as Ubuntu, Linux Mint. Though many of the information can also be applied to other Linux systems with slight adaptations.
Note2: I prepared a kind of template - see Miscellaneous - if you like to contribute I'd appreciate if you could use that one as far as possible. If you modify a page please leave a note at the changelogs on each if the pages.

Enjoy. Let's get started. :D


P.S: Feedback: You can PM me or you can meet me in the Linux Audio - The way to Go Thread.
