Micro Sized QuadCore Linux PC For Music Production

Cloudsto MK802IV LE - 1.6gHzQuad, 2GB RAM, 1080p - for music      14/11/13

I've long been interested in the micro PC - we use a Raspberry Pi here for a vairety of tasks, but its always on the edge of its capacity. This new QuadCore PC running Ubuntu Linux looks way more powerful : In the video we see it running LMMS.

The Cloudsto MK802IV LE Linux Edition Quad Core PC costs around £80 and has the following specification:

2GB of RAM, built in Wifi, 3 x USB ports, Fast onboard flash storage and runs the Ubuntu desktop OS at full speed. Now it really is possible to browse the internet, read email, manage files, edit photos, make documents, make music and even watch TV in true desktop style using a PC which fits in the palm of your hand.

The video demonstrates how they created a 12 track song using drum samples, realtime software synthesisers, FX processing plugins.

The LMMS Music Production software:

  • Song-Editor for composing songs
  • A Beat+Bassline-Editor for creating beats and basslines
  • An easy-to-use Piano-Roll for editing patterns and melodies
  • An FX mixer with 64 FX channels and arbitrary number of effects allow unlimited mixing possibilities
  • Many powerful instrument and effect plugins out of the box
  • Full user-defined track-based automation and computer-controlled automation sources
  • Compatible with many standards such as SoundFont2, VST(i), LADSPA, GUS Patches, and MIDI
  • Import of MIDI files, Hydrogen project files and FL Studio ® project files

Tempted? I am.... Maybe I can run the Bitwig beta on it...
