Another great Linux app is "TuxGuitar". It is a tab editor and you can use to import or export MIDI files, Guitar Pro (up to version 5. Version 6 is not supported yet) and Power Tab files.

It's interface is very similar to Guitar Pro. There's also version for Windows and Mac Os X. I use it to write my own song partitures and then export each MIDI track to use them in synthesizers.

For a strange reason, I could not make "Tuxguitar" to play sound on my M-Audio Fast Track USB. I have installed "tuxguitar-fluidsynth", "tuxguitar-alsa", "tuxguitar-jack", "timidty" and so on, but no sound is played even when I import a MIDI file to "Tuxguitar".

I have "chorium.sf2" installed and it works properly when I double click on the MIDI file I want to hear.

Right now, I'm trying to make "EZDrummer" runs through WINE and the LePou plugins to run in Ardour. I'll apreciate any help because I switched to GNU/Linux recently.

I followed this tutorial from start to finish and "Reaper" works on my "Xubuntu" installation :cheers:

It's a bit dated, but this one works for me: https://alexanderstechcorner.wordpress. ... ntu-linux/

Why do you need Reaper in Linux? Current Ardour state is awesome, it's a complete solid DAW with all you need for professional music production! falktx developed a very powerfull all-in-one plugin host Carla, which can work as a plugin inside Ardour and load windows VSTs, save it's state and automate them through MIDI. But seriously I don't even load vst's for some time at all. Guitarix now looks and sounds very well, all other stuff is available in linux native LV2 format. There's a new great drum sampler DrumGizzmo for Linux and some great libraries for Hydrogen.

Hum... never knew the fact Ardour can support Windows VSTs :lol:

There some plugins I use, like EZDrummer, Addictive Drums and Broomstick Bass, which I can play MIDI files exported from TuxGuitar. Wil they runs fine in Ardour? If so, I could give Ardour another try.

Ardour doesn't. Carla does ;-)

Carla is an all-in-one plugin host which you can load into Ardour as LV2 plugin. Carla runs windows VSTs externally so they does not affect Ardour in any way and connects audio/midi through JACK, save it's state and load it on next Ardour startup restoring all plugin settings like all other DAWs do.
