A Basic Text-Based Recording Studio
As we have demonstrated, it is possible to create a simple multitrack recording using a handful of Linux audio tools. Once we started jackd, it was a simple process of telling Ecasound where to receive input from and where to send output to as we recorded our initial track and overdubbed a series of subsequent tracks.
Each of these tracks has been stored in its own individual .wav file. This allows us to use any other soundfile editor to make manual modifications to the track before mixing a final track, which can then also be tweaked. Common applications for processing audio files include Ecasound, SoX and Audacity.
We have really just scratched the surface of this particular aspect of a large field. With luck, it will form a solid foundation on which you can build your creative genius!
