I'm happy to announce the newly created Linux-Audio-User (LAU)
It is intended to provide a forum for people using Linux for audio
editing, composition, MIDI sequencing etc.
Since the old Linux-Sound list has apparently gone into oblivion
when the vger.rutgers.edu machine died, some folks on the
Linux-Audio-Dev list felt that it might be time to start a new one
especially for users.
On LAU, we'd like to talk about:
* which application is best suited for a particular job
* how apps can be made to work together
* how to tune your system for low latency
* how to get the best audio quality out of your system
* sharing tips & tricks for audio editing/synthesis/recording, etc.
* how you use your linux box as a guitar FX rack/P.A. equalizer/
* record release announcements "made with Linux"
* announcements for new applications and/or updates
* streaming media
* audio encoding
We suggest not to post driver issues and very basic "my hardware
does not play sounds" questions. There is no better place for this
There are many different lists with audio subjects, but most are
project-specific or centered around one special tool (like the
Common Music or Csound lists).
LAU is intended to be a common exchange point for *all* audio users
(although it remains a good idea to follow the mailing list of your
favourite programs as well).
Another goal is being close to the application developers. Many
software authors and contributors to the Linux-Audio-Dev list lurk
on LAU, ready to listen to users' woes and wishes :)
For the subscription procedure, please visit
This site also has a searchable list archive, news, infos and links
to many audio-related sites.
Thanks for your time,
[If you read other mailing lists or newsgroups that might be
interested in this announcement, please forward it.]
