Just a quickie …
What are the options for a decent / lightweight Linux distro to run Ardour on .
I would be using this combo / config for simultaenous multitrack recording @ 96KHz, 32Bit, Mono .
I wouldn’t be using any plugins during the recording, just multitracking my acoustic drumkit using a 8 to 16 mic-setup … and leaving the mixing / processing to a dedicated machine .
My audio hardware is a TASCAM US-16x08 external box … so there pretty much has to be support for it .
The Laptop’s Specs ;
Fujitsu-Siemens Amilo La1703 ([Amilo L Series]
AMD Mobile Sempron 3200+
[VIA S3G UniChrome Pro] - 128 MB
15.4 inch 16:10, 1280 x 800 pixel, WXGA
Mainboard / Chipset
Main / System Memory : 2GB
I’m currently “running” Windows 8 x64 on this laptop, but it’s very, very sluggish .
Would Puppy Linux / Puppy Studio be worthwhile checking out ? if so … Does Ardour run on it and what is the latest version of Ardour for that platform ? I’ve seen this one … ardour-4.7.0.sfs
