Hello i am new to linux and i want to use it for my production studio. Right now i am working with a P4 3.0GHZ PC with 2GB of memory, Digi 001 with 24 bit card, Yamaha HS 50 monitors, Yamaha MG 16/4 Analog mixer, Protools and Nuendo 3.0. It works fine, but i like trying out new things so i want to use the 64 Studio and check things out also i am amazed with linux. How can i use the 64 Studio with the equipment i have? Does the 64 Studio support and digidesign products ?

I agree with Toine, you may be a little disappointed at first, but you also may be amazed at how comparable the open source audio software is to very pricey proprietary counterparts. Check out the link below for a list of compatible hardware. Judging by your setup you may not be ready to dive into linux and get all new hardware, but there are plenty of inexpensive interfaces that you could use to test the waters.

Hey, First of all, you will have to change of sound card : pro tools sound cards are for pro tools software. A lot of great sound cards are very well supported by Linux, so have a look at Echo audio products, or to RME audio too (better than Echo, I think) Then try Ardour2, but you will be a bit disapointed : it is not so complete for the edit than pro-tools. But if your need is to record, mix, add just a bit if plug-ins to enhance the sound (and not to make all the sound with plug-ins, as I see so often in studios....) you will ear that it sounds very great !!
