As for programs to create and edit audio, I that two things are clear: the best is the software available for Apple computers. His GarageBand is free, and from there we can do everything, even let a drummer improvise according to our orders. The other thing that seems clear is that, although there is no software that gathers everything like the mentioned GarageBand, for Linux we have everything, such as Audacity, LMMS, Hydrogen or a protagonist of this article who just launched Muse 4.0.
For the operation of a program, the design is not the most important thing. Yes, its distribution can be, and here I am not talking about an operating system or a flavor, but where things are placed. A good distribution will make a program intuitive, something that I personally ask of any software, although it is also true that you always have to learn even a little. Thinking about this, the most notable change that has come with MuSe 4.0 is that have redesigned their user interface.
Highlights of MuSe 4.0
- The main feature of version 4.0 is the redesign of the user interface with a lot of improvements in the quality of life.
- Tabbed user interface, with docks for common utility editors such as the bookmark list, master track list, and event list.
- New dark theme with many graphical improvements, including many reworked icons in vector format.
- Many new toolbars for quick access to the most common operations.
- Many of the menu operations now have a corresponding keyboard shortcut.
- Many new keyboard shortcuts.
- An AppImage is available to facilitate installation in all distributions, both for the stable versions and for the development version.
- Many other fixes and improvements.
