I started using the KXStudio repositories for Ubuntu about six months

After about 45 minutes of downloads and one or two reboots I had a
machine with the latest versions of all major media software; the
whole system running on JACK; midi, pulseaudio, and alsa working in

plugins (LV2, DSSI, LADSPA, Linux VST and even most Windows VST and
VSTi) and everything "just works". I highly recommend it to any
