Experts will be available to give advice and useful hints, while several concerts and a sound installation will demonstrate using Linux software for music composition and production. The end of the conference will be marked by a panel discussion about the future of libre audio software under Linux.
During the conference the brand-new Lionstracs Mediastation will be on show. This keyboard, targeted towards music production, is based almost completely on Linux software. Also promised is a CD-bootable Live Linux audio system, developed to help newcomers try out the Linux platform.
