RE: Was: (Gibson jacks up Echoplex price) Now nifty hardware platforms

I just setup a spare box to run Fedora 2 and the install was relatively
trouble free except for the bootloader has one minor issue (have to look at
my bios settings ??? ) Well I might try out Sooper Looper on the Sound
Blaster Audigy card installed in that machine once I get to checking out
whether it is working right ;D
The SB isn't my ideal card but, I know they function under Linux with few
difficulties. I would like to check out one of those Mini Itx boards as 
would be the way I would want to go dedicated hardware as opposed to 
a full PC around.

Your link got scewed up so I will repost the link

And once again Sooper Looper (I know it's been posted before)

Know of any good Mini ITX developer forums?

hi Alan and list,

I just wanted to comment on the Agnula link.  I've been playing around with
the Agnula Demudi live CD (that's also mentioned in the Project Idea link
you provided).  For anyone interested in looking at linux as an audio
machine but not wanting to go for a full hard drive install, this CD is
great.  It's basically a fully stacked linux audio production suite,
covering most aspects of digital audio production, on an easy to use CD 
you just stick in your box and boot up.  It doesn't offer the performance 
a full install (loading apps from the cd is a little slow for instance), 
it does give a great idea of just how far linux has progressed into 
a highly usable audio production environment. 

The CD has no real looping application by default, but using PD and the
right hardware you can use something like this :  
for an 8 channel realtime looping sampler!  there are other PD based 
patches, but this seems to have the most polished interface.
