My current linux setup:

Linux Mint (18.3 cinnamon) on a i3 processor, 6g ram
Reaper DAW (Linux version)
ModDuo (pedalboards)
U-He Hive (synths)
Focusrite solo usb interface.

Works like a charm !

Nice neat setup! Do you use Reaper for (virtual) Midi instruments like synthesizers too? Or do you mainly record guitar audio?

Thanks!
It's not a real one though, it's a ceramic one.
I first thought it was a dildo!


I thought it's a battery powered plastic cactus with a builtin microphone that wiggles/dances to music :)

Mostly a guitarist, just launching into the whole "computer as studio" thing after successfully completing a rather involved arrangement for a Church program last Christmas. It was a bit of a steep learning curve, but it beat using a razor blade, scotch tape, and five billion photocopies of the sheet music! :D

Name: mrz80

Purpose: composing, arranging, learning, exasperating the wife :lol:

Main machine
hw: homebrew Phenom II X6, 12GB RAM, 512GB SSD, 1TB spinnydisk, MAudio sound card, Novation Launchkey 25, Akai LPD8
(I have a Macbook with a busted screen waiting in the wings for a screen repair and a RAM upgrade, if I ever get around to it)
(I don't have the space to set it up at present, but there's also my daughter's Casio Privia PX-310 up on edge in a closet)
Half a dozen guitars, and a MicroCube amp
audio: Cheap little Lepai amp, NHT SuperZero speakers at ear level
sw: Ubuntu Studio 18.04, Jack, Hydrogen, Rosegarden, Audacity, Qsynth, Padthv1, Amsynth, Synthv1, Bristol, VCV Rack (that last is an obsession all by itself!)

Portable machine
hw: Acer Chromebook C720 snagged at a hamfest for $25, 2GB RAM, 128MB SSD
audio: whatever is handy where I am, usually either Sony MDR V150 'phones or the church's PA
sw: Same as above

@mrz80: Welcome! :)

What DAW do you use to record your (guitar) audio with?

Only time I've recorded myself was through the church's PA, pulling the house feed into Audacity with one of those little Behringer stereo USB bricks. Worked just fine.
