64 Studio

Ubuntu LogoAbout 64 Studio

64 Studio is a collection of software for digital content creation on x86_64 hardware (AMDís 64-bit CPUs and Intelís EM64T chips). Itís based on the pure 64 bit port of Debian GNU/Linux, but with a specialised package selection and lots of other customisations.

It has a custom kernel with realtime patches applied, some pre-configuration and a custom package selection designed to meet the needs of creative desktop users.

Founded by Daniel James, one of the Debian developers on the Multimedia team, 64 Studio is designed to be installed to a hard disk, and for the distro to be ready to use in under 30 minutes.

Notable inclusions in the distro are:
  • Rosegarden - a professional audio and MIDI sequencer, score editor, and general-purpose music composition and editing environment.
  • Hydrogen - an advanced drum machine with the goal of bringing professional yet simple and intuitive pattern-based drum programming to Linux.
  • JAMin - the JACK Audio Connection Kit (JACK) Audio Mastering interface. JAMin is an open source application designed to perform professional audio mastering of stereo input streams.
  • Ardour - a digital audio workstation. You can use it to record, edit and mix multi-track audio.
  • Jack - a low-latency audio server. It can connect a number of different applications to an audio device, as well as allowing them to share audio between themselves
