The Linux-Based Recording Studio
Good studio practice is more than a computer and its fancy open-source applications. For example, don't forget to take tracks outside of the computer's domain. You may want to use a tube preamp, a classic reverb or an outboard compressor. Experiment, don't be afraid to fuse the old with the new and admit when your software isn't giving you what you really want. A drum machine never can replace a drummer.
You also want to be wise about your cabling and general studio maintenance. Keep audio cables away from AC cables, cross them only at right angles when absolutely necessary and keep your connections clean. See the Resources page on the Web for some general recording information that should be helpful.
There you have it, the fusion of computer geek and recording nerd. You're now a few steps closer to your Linux-based studio. When you need help, check out the Mailing Lists on the Resources page. Good luck, and raise your glass to some ingenious open-source records appearing in stores everywhere.
