Re: [PlanetCCRMA] Music Spin

For this low-level task some engineering would be required? I'm not
this kind of guy who know much about tasks scheduling and priorities
(kernel level) but some people told me that real-time kernels patches
could slow down Fedora and I should not use it. I don't know much
about this or what would be the best fine adjustments to get the best
of the OS for audio.

Planet-CCRMA did most of the work already very nicely :-) Yes, the
first step would be getting all important packages into Fedora. The
idea would be an OS oriented towards audio and score editing,  so the
entire OS including kernel and fine adjustments should be optimized to
audio/low-latencies tasks.

Important things:
- ALL applications should send audio to JACK
- The main sound synthesis/processing software: SuperCollider and Pd-extended
- Audio plugsin LADSPA, DSSI, LV2 (would be possible to include VST support?)
- some kind of audio plugins packaging / modules ?
- Ardour, Jost and QTractor
