Hi folks,
I just wanted to say that you kind people from this list are giving me 
some new and fresh inspiration to make music.

I've completed the transition. I've found every tool I need to work 
under gnu/Linux.

Currently I'm using:

- Jack (obviously)
- Muse (for sequencing and basic recording).
- ZynAddSubFx (an incredible synth, it still just lack realtime tweaking 
with midi controls).
- Every ladspa effect I've found.
- Audacity.
- Slackware 10.2 with kernel 2.6.13 (still my favourite distro).

I'm also planning to use Ardour for more complicate audio editing and 
Jamin for final mastering.

Everything compiled from source.

On the hardware side:

- Edirol UA-25 (I'm still struggling to make my gf UA-20 working).
- Zoom G2.u1 (for guitar amp modeling, through USB).
- Edirol PCRM-30
- Roland A-33

I still looking for some good piano soundfont. So far this is the best 
I've found:


So, I just wanted to say thank you to Paul (Davis), Clemens, Paul (of 
Zyn) and all the people making and mantaining such awesome software, and 
that helped me getting everything working, and everybody else on this 
list, of course. I was tired to use proprietary software. As a developer 
myself, I'm scared about the direction our society is taking. Our 
freedom is in danger, and the open source community is the proof that 
there's still hope.

Sorry for bothering you people on the list. I know this is nothing new, 
I just felt the need to write this.
