Website of the Week
Linuxaudio.org is a not-for-profit consortium of libre software projects and artists, companies, institutions, organizations, and hardware vendors using Linux kernel-based systems and allied libre software for audio-related work, with an emphasis on professional tools for the music, production, recording, and broadcast industries.
Tip of the Week
- Inexpensive, external low-latency USB audio interfaces such as the Behringer UCA 202 and 222 can allow you to connect musical instruments to your Linux Digital Audio Workstation. Tascam and M-Audio offer similar products. Additionally, by placing the audio interface outside the computer (away from interference from other components) you can eliminate buzz and hum from your recordings.
- Send in mintCast logos and T-Shirt designs for a chance to win one of the new mintCast T-Shirts in our contest.
The best logos and designs will win a free T-Shirt, so send in your designs by July 31th.
