This question came from our site for engineers, producers, editors, and enthusiasts spanning the fields of video, and media creation.

Which software/OS are you currently using? – Friend Of George Sep 23 '11 at 17:30
Windows. I use to work FL Studio, Reason, SoundForge, Cubase and Famitracker. – user1448 Sep 23 '11 at 17:46
call me confused, but ubuntu studio is a linux distro – horatio Sep 23 '11 at 18:19
This question is really open ended, probably too open-ended. If you're just looking for DAW software there's this question. If you have a specific need though, do edit your question so we can get you some good answers. – Warrior Bob Sep 23 '11 at 19:48
Sorry @FriendOfGeorge and Warrior Bob for being confused. I currently use Windows but i've installed Ubuntu Studio and trying to figure it out which programs (Daws, Sound Editors or you tell me) are the "must be installed" to make music and sounds for videogames. – user1448 Sep 23 '11 at 23:19

Generally, Ardour is the go-to DAW for Linux. As for software with more specific purposes, I would just search through the software center for whatever you're looking for and see which one you like best- maybe starting with the ones with higher ratings.

It is easier, with Linux, to take a more modular approach to music and sound development by using jack.
