List of speakers and proposed talks
The (first) conference of the "Linux Audio Developers" gives you the chance
to inform yourself firsthand about the current state of developments of
audio under Linux.
With the Advanced Linux Sound Architecture (ALSA) becoming more and more
stable, the list of free audio-related software for the open-source operating
system Linux is growing quickly. The presentations held during the conference
cover a wide range, starting with the technical basics of the sound driver
architecture (ALSA, JACK), up to applications dealing with the topics
harddisk recording, MIDI sequencing, software synthesis and score editing.
Also, a lecture about LADSPA (Linux Audio Developers Plugin API)
deals with methods of digital signal processing.
The presentation on Friday at 8:00 PM (Overview "Linux und Sound", held in
German language) and the Session III ("Applications and Distributions"),
starting at 5:00 PM on Saturday especially
address people who are less interested in the software development aspects and
are more interested in "making music". The conference ends on Saturday evening
with a "Linux Sound Night" which shall demonstrate how music can be made
and produced under Linux. The audience is invited to participate in this
event by asking questions about certain applications. All presentations (unless
specified) are held in English language.
In addition to the public talks the conference will offer the opportunity
for Linux Audio Developers to discuss current and future audio development.
This is intended to take place especially on Sunday, where rooms of ZKM
are available for LAD internal discussion.
No registration is needed for the public talks.
