State of the Art: Linux Audio 2008

An overview of current capabilities and achievements in Linux audio development.
Outro

In Part II of this article, I'll assess the current state of development of Linux sound and music applications. Until then, stay tuned.

Dave Phillips is a professional musician and writer living in Findlay, Ohio. He's been using Linux since the mid-1990s and was one of the original founders of the Linux Audio Developers group. He is the author of The Book of Linux Music & Sound (No Starch Press, 2000) and has written many articles on Linux music and sound issues for various journals and on-line news sites. When he isn't playing with light and sound, he enjoys reading Latin literature, practicing t'ai chi, chasing shar-pei puppies and spending time with his beloved Ivy.

"Currently supported back ends now include ALSA, OSS, PulseAudio, FreeBob/FFADO (for FireWire devices) and CoreAudio (on OS X)."

Not exactly, PulseAudio is not supported, but a PortAudio driver to be used for Jackdmp Windows version.

Ouch, you're right, I meant Portaudio. Thanks for the correction. :)
