This week we’re going to dive into the world of Audio in Linux. For the majority of users Pulseaudio seems to do most everything you expect, however, that’s not always the case when it comes to more professional audio support. This is why we have projects like Jack and the up and coming PipeWire in hopes of bringing professional and easier audio capability into Linux. We’re going to be digging deep into this topic and some news from one particular distro that’s looking to push Audio in Linux into the future. In addition we will be covering community feedback and of course we have our popular tips/tricks and software picks. All of this and so much more this week on Destination Linux.

    Thanks, everyone, very fun and informative as ever :slight_smile: Lovely to see @jill_linuxgirl leading the presentation this week :+1: I’m still trying to find @dasgeek 's TikTok link in the show notes though :wink:

    I agree with everyone on PipeWire in Fedora. Could be another revolutionary change, especially coupled with Wayland and Btrfs. I also strongly agree with right to repair, and although the UK has recently voted to leave the EU I am strongly in support of it. I’ve not been able to purchase new hardware for some time now, but when I do, I’ll certainly favour firms that offer longevity, if I am able to. I remember studying the algorithms behind ray tracing in Computer Graphics course, one of my favourites when I was an undergraduate. Interesting to find hardware support for this coming, a couple of decades down-the-line. I’m not much of a gamer myself, but I can certainly imagine the benefits!

  2. Aaahhww, thank you again @ak2020!!! So true about ray tracing! Been using it in animation programs since the 80’s :grinning: It’s nice to see it finally coming to the mainstream in gaming on Linux!! Cheers and :hugs:!! :heart_eyes::joy::penguin::penguin::penguin:

    When I was studying Computer Vision, which involved some of the hardest maths I ever did, I never would have dreamt it would be applied in augmented reality applications like Snapchat in real-time. I don’t use it but it fascinates me to see what computer vision is being used for now in real-time!
