    Default homerecording OS

    I am very satisfied user of openSUSE 11.1
    But I wonder what OS I should best choose for homerecording with jack and Ardour 2.8.x there is no Jacklab anymore.

    I hear 64studio is the best choice or is it possible to make a even as good homerecording distribution with openSUSE by choosing music and recording applications and the realtime kernel.

    SUSE Studio - openSUSE

    greetings
    Anton

    Yes, 64 Studio is the best choice for that. Even better if you can dual boot with it (as I did). It's debian based, but with cutting edge multimedia packages built or backported in-house, and the 3.0 beta uses ubuntu repos for the day to day packages. The application expertise available in the 64 Studio forum with the pre-configured applications are reason enough. Once you have achieved your best homerecording setup on 64 Studio, you can approach Suse Studio in an attempt to recreate a similar setup with realtime kernel and appropriate applications.

    Not by reputation previous to 9.04. I didn't actually try Ubuntu Studio, although more glossy than 64 Studio, it's much less "industrial" strength. The knowledge of users/musicians in the 64 Studio forum is important, and the distro team offers professional services. Ubuntu studio had a lot of problems with its kernel, and more users seem to move from that distro to 64 Studio, than go the other way (if any). That's an impression I formed from reading posts, rather than any stats.

    Why would 64 Studio be a better choice then either Ubuntu Studio or
    Dyne.bolic?

    Further to that, you may be interested in this older, short thread, in this forum apr/may time, and worth going back through its posts. That user was happy to arrive at 64 Studio and was posting there soon after. See post #6 for his reference to Ubuntu studio as a toy, and post #8 for his reaction to the early 3.0 beta.

    The question wasn't aimed at you, but at @69_rs_ss.

    I gave you my reasons for 64 Studio, and for rejecting Ububtu Studio at the time I did my research, plus the link to a previous thread. Also, having looked at dyne.bolic website, I wouldn't personally consider it, whatever rasta software means .

    If you think Ubuntu studio 9.04 has improved with a realtime kernel, give it a spin. I suggest first you try and check the level of application integration, default setup, documentation, and support (forum) beforehand.

    I have installed Ubuntu Studio 64 with the realtime kernel
    everthing works fine so far.
    I asked because 64studio 3.0 is still beta 3 for months.
    Installed 64studio looks like it is based on an older real time kernel.
