ubuntu studio audio handbook coverAnyone looking to get started with audio and music production on Ubuntu Studio now have an excellent guide to assist them.

The Ubuntu Studio Audio Handbook is comprehensive (and totally free) guide to digital recording and audio production on Ubuntu Linux.

The guide is pitched at amateur and semi-professional audio enthusiasts and covers music making and audio production on Ubuntu Studio using freely available software.

Don’t let the fact that the guide is aimed at users of Ubuntu Studio put you off, either.

Much of the content in the Ubuntu Studio Audio Handbook can be applied to other Linux distros, including regular Ubuntu and Linux Mint.

The online resource is perfect for anyone looking to:

  • Discover open source audio editing software
  • Learn more about music production on Linux
  • Get more out of tools like Audacity & Audour
  • Get to grips with mixing and mastering
  • Publish & share music online
  • Learn technical terminology
  • Troubleshoot common audio issues

I’m not particularly savvy with audio production on Linux (as those of you who strained to hear the narration in our 17.10 video can attest) so, for me, this guide looks fantastic. As soon as it’s available in a PDF I’ll be shoving it on my Kindle to swot up!

The audio handbook is freely available on the Ubuntu Studio wiki:

A PDF download is “coming soon” — perfect if you’re like me and prefer to read dense content in more parseable format using a smartphone, tablet, or Amazon Kindle/ebook reader.
