Linux Music and Sound
Founded in 2000,Linux Journal Press publishes books on cutting-edge Linux topics that will make a difference for users at all levels of expertise. The imprint's goal is to assist in advancing the acceptance and usability of Linux. The first of 8 titles planned in the imprint's first calendar year, Linux Music & Sound will make an important contribution to the continuing development of Linux.
The advancement of music and sound under Linux is crucial to the operating system's success on the desktop. Author Dave Phillips, a performing musician for over 30 years, is an expert in MIDI, Csound, and Linux. He maintains a Linux MIDI and Sound informational web site found atwww.bright.net/~dlphilp/linuxsound. In Linux Music & Sound he explains the basics of digital sound and tackles Linux-specific software and hardware issues. Phillips covers general Linux audio set-up, describes basic and advanced use of the system, and profiles and evaluates the broad range of Linux sound and music applications.

The Blender Book, by Carsten Wartmann (Nov. 2000,ISBN:1-886411-44-1) walks readers through Blender, a free 3D modeling and animation tool that runs on multiple platforms, including Windows, Linux, and FreeBSD.

With all the industry talk about the benefits of Linux on Power and all the performance advantages offered by its open architecture, you may be considering a move in that direction. If you are thinking about analytics, big data and cloud computing, you would be right to evaluate Power. The idea of using commodity x86 hardware and replacing it every three years is an outdated cost model. It doesn’t consider the total cost of ownership, and it doesn’t consider the advantage of real processing power, high-availability and multithreading like a demon.
This ebook takes a look at some of the practical applications of the Linux on Power platform and ways you might bring all the performance power of this open architecture to bear for your organization. There are no smoke and mirrors here—just hard, cold, empirical evidence provided by independent sources. I also consider some innovative ways Linux on Power will be used in the future.Get the Guide
