  • Ubuntu Studio: Creative Linux Distro

    Ubuntu Studio combines the Ubuntu Linux operating system with a wide range of free creative applications. In this video I install the software and demonstrate the Audacity audio editor, Yoshimi synthesizer, Hydroden drum sequencer, GIMP photo editor, Inkspace vector graphics package, Krita and MyPaint digital painting programs, Scribus DTP package, Blender 3D modeller, and the Kdenlive, OpenShot and Pitivi video editors.

    You can download Ubuntu Studio from: https://ubuntustudio.org/

    The Etcher utility I use to create a bootable USB drive is at: https://etcher.io/

    My previous videos on some of the creative software shown here include:
