Before the Disco Dingo release, there were questions about whether Ubuntu Studio would remain the official flavor of Canonical's operating system. I, who used it for a while about 10 years ago, I think it does not need to exist and that it will end up disappearing, but for now it continues to hold, partly thanks to the user community who disagrees with me. The next version will be Ubuntu Studio 19.10 Eoan Ermine, a version in development phase that already includes some noteworthy news.
Ubuntu Studio 19.10 will be officially released along with the rest of the Ubuntu family components on October 17. In Disco Dingo some bugs have already been corrected, such as the MIDI ALSA-Jack bridge that did not survive a reboot. Taking advantage of the launch of Eoan Ermine, the multimedia version of Ubuntu will include new functions, some of them coming to Ubuntu Studio Controls. You have more of these news after the cut.
What's new now available in Ubuntu Studio 19.10
- PulseAudio multiple bridges (for individual application routing).
- Jack Status indicator inside the window.
- DSP usage meter.
- Quick links to QASMixer, Carla and Pulse Audio Control.
- LSP Plugins (Linux Studio Plugins). It is a collection of 91 Ladspa, LV2, VST plugins compatible with Carla, Ardor and other DAWs. They will be included by default in Ubuntu 19.10 Eoan Ermine. For older versions, they are available in your Backports repository.
La Eoan Ermine development phase It started at the beginning of May, which means that it is still taking its first steps. There are still about 4 months until its official launch, so it is expected that they will still announce many more news. Movement of add default LSP plugins it may be an attempt to offer all possible options / functions to convince us that Ubuntu Studio does make sense, something that I personally am not very clear about. Do you think Ubuntu Studio should continue to exist or are you one of those who prefers to install the necessary software separately?
