Libre Music Production!

New community driven online project, Libre Music Production, launches today, Sunday 17th August 2014.

This new resource focuses on promoting music creation and composition using Free/Libre/Open Source Software.

The idea of Libre Music Production (LMP) was born out of a perceived lack of integrated resources, and in particular a lack of information aimed at new and non-technical users.

"On LMP you will find both text and video tutorials, as well as articles, that present a workflow for making music with FLOSS software," says Gabriel Nordeborn, Co-Founder of LMP.

Libre Music Production features articles on the basic steps in a FLOSS music workflow such as:

  • Selecting an audio-orientated Linux distribution
  • Getting the right hardware for recording
  • Understanding JACK, the all-important Linux audio server
  • Producing music with FLOSS software

The articles and tutorials are supported by a Jargon Buster and FAQ-section, as well as a comprehensive tools listing, which are linked to throughout the website.

Libre Music Production is a community-driven project, originally founded by Gabriel Nordeborn (Sweden), Staffan Melin (Sweden) and Conor Mc Cormack (Ireland).
