I've been using Linux since 1998, and got interested in using it for music composition in 2002. I had been using Windows (and various pieces of software) for composition, under the title "Herding Aardvarks". The music written in Linux is under the project name RS232.
At present, my favoured Midi sequencer is Seq24, although up until very recently, I was using Muse.
I'm currently working on some new material, but here are some older tracks:
My first offering is a piece using Zynaddssubfx and Amsynth sequenced with Muse. The drum loop was written using Hydrogen and the whole recorded using Timemachine.
My second piece is an old-skool computer game style piece, written entirely using Soundtracker. The samples came from music machines and were tweaked using Audacity.
The last piece for the time being was also written using Muse and zynaddsubfx. Each track was recorded separately into Ardour, using midi-sync (before jack-sync existed) and then LADSPA effects added (Barry's Satan Maximizer to the drums - really overdone, and LoFi to the zyn parts.. lots of My Bloody Valentine style slowdown). Believe it or not, I had an even more compressed version (pushed thru jamin).. but this is an example of overkill on the effects!
