What started out as a script on a wiki to run on an Ubuntu installation became a full-fledged Desktop Linux installation complete with everything a creative individual would need in the realms of audio, graphics, photography, and video. Eventually, development stalled-out. In 2018, it was picked-up and is now better than ever! Now it can be used in live production in addition to pre-production, post-production, and use cases that stretch as far as the imagination and are only limited by human creativity.
Join project leader Erich Eickmeyer as we explore Ubuntu Studio: what it was, what it is, and what it could be.
