Make music the free, open and easy way with Libre Music Production!

New community driven online project, Libre Music Production (www.libremusicproduction.com), launches today, Sunday 17th August 2014.

This new resource focuses on promoting music creation and composition using Free/Libre/Open Source Software (FLOSS).

The idea of Libre Music Production (LMP) was born out of a perceived lack of integrated resources, and in particular a lack of information aimed at new and non-technical users.

By providing hands-on material submitted by the community, such as guides, tutorials, articles and news updates, Libre Music Production shows you that there is great FLOSS audio software out there, and also how to practically use that software to make music.

"On LMP you will find both text and video tutorials, as well as articles, that present a workflow for making music with FLOSS software," says Gabriel Nordeborn, Co-Founder of LMP.

Gabriel adds, "A wonderful and wide range of options exist for people who want to create music with FLOSS tools. However, a single resource to bring it all together has been lacking. This is no longer the case."

Libre Music Production features articles on the basic steps in a FLOSS music workflow such as:

  • Selecting an audio-orientated Linux distribution
  • Getting the right hardware for recording
  • Understanding JACK, the all-important Linux audio server
  • Producing music with FLOSS software

The articles and tutorials are supported by a Jargon Buster and FAQ-section, as well as a comprehensive tools listing, which are linked to throughout the website.

"While we have already filled LMP with a lot of useful content, an important goal for this project is to involve the community as much as possible and build on those resources in the same way as the FLOSS software that we feature," says Conor Mc Cormack, Co-Founder.

"We are an international team, with members from Sweden, Ireland, Italy and the USA. Collaboration is at the heart of FLOSS and it is in that spirit that we have set up Libre Music Production. Editorial contributions to help grow Libre Music Production are therefore very welcome," says Staffan Melin, Co-Founder.

As Libre Music Production is a community driven project, we need contributions from people like you, the user, to make it successful. Creating articles and tutorials, submitting news tips or sending in corrections, are just some of the ways that you can get involved.
