hhub17's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" complete, easy, without bugs"
For me the installation was not difficult, I had already installed several Ubuntu (studio) and others on a drive with multiple partitions on purpose, where I kept my Windows XP, and another where I was 7, with multidémarrage utility.
No incompatibilities with hardware: Cell ordis or not, 32 and 64 with their original sound cards, sound cards / mixetteUSB Multimix USB2 Fireface UCX (RME) to DC USB mode work well, too, but my Line6 Toneport course software simulations and effects are not available.
General configuration easy, almost everything is made out.
My ordis: an old laptop with Toshiba 2GB of RAM, a Sony VAIO with 4 GB of RAM 2 processors, HP multimedia GO 2 with 4 processors, highly variable performance.
Samsung 2014 with 4GB planned for Windows 8 and all possible blockages to prevent other operating systems: I have not forced the installation because I wanted to keep my Windows (used for work), the blow with all their security / anti-linux locks, I could not install. But there are tutorials on the net for a bit around this. you must take your time and go with method.
For other ordis, very stable configuration, no crash, run for days without complaining, I let turn three days without touching it, and when I take it works right away.
I perfect food because it's still not their fault Grosoft do not like competition and plant traps in ordis with the complicity of the manufacturers, and anyway it's all nickel in this system, except sometimes the Bristol synth who is struggling but I think it is known.
This 3 years now I use it, I tried other systems also: ubuntustudio, KXstudio, 64studio FEDORA CCRMA.
I like the opportunity to test liveDVD, the bias of a dedicated music system including real-time kernel from the start, the integration of all the software without having to search through the list of repositories everything is useful as synths, and I believe the presence of winasio which allows use REAPER directly with just a little setup to do. See linuxmao.fr for all this. I also like to have the same system exactly on various materials from different generations, I could even connect to network with applications Qjackctrl music and sound transit network, if I had 8 arms and need. I may try with friends.
What I like least: NOTHING!
Price / quality ratio: Cost € 0, so great.
With experience, I would keep the multidémarrage and I would still be several linuxes and others, because I like it and it does not disturb anything, cohabitation is transparent. But we must see that Linux has progressed and some manufacturers make "class compliant" for smartphones (RME thank you!), But it allows the use of hardware under Linux computer, so it wins.

domduf's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" To infinity and beyond ..."
I installed Tango Studio install on a Win XP pro.
We can learn about the dedicated website (in frenchais ..)
Where it is a bit tricky, it's partitioning:
-Choose manual partitioning
-Reduce the size of the original partition (ntfs in my case) to create a new partition for Linux (tango studio)
TS-install ssur this new partition.
In my case, I reduced the 80GB Windows 40 GB
Old AMD64 computer with 4GB of Ram.
No worries, all is well
I will try the config my card Firestudio to follow.
Well, I just put there.
I had tried other distributions, but it seems good for musicians who want to innovate.
I was fortunate to be initiated by a trainers AMMD, the ITEMM

Art&Prod's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" An alternative system and effective"
Iso image to burn to dvd on boot on the drive we follow to the letter the recommendation is then updated with the synapsis: nikel for the neophyte
# Have you encountered any incompatibilities?
Yes soundcards are not all support
but pierces fast enough information on the net
# The general configuration is easy?
Yes and no this is another way to do this is to capture all the subtleties
# The manual is clear and sufficient?
There ubuntu community
and dedicated website tangostudio
What is the configuration of your computer? (Motherboard / CPU / Ram / Disk / sound card ..)
The software works he correctly on this configuration?
What is performance? (If quantifiable)
This software + hardware is stable?
Uh I'm talking about an old machine
With a hp motherboard ASUSTeK PS5 one puntium D dual core 2ghz
A hitachi 320GB HD partitioned for dual boot xp from one partion for audio traail
and another hd for sauvefardes
Dd burner classic and dvd-ram
HDSP 9652 and recently one of at rm
one MOTU 2408 which now serves as my D / A converter
# The software works he correctly on this configuration?
# What is performance? (If quantifiable)
This is where it is interesting
the same machine has xp bug in audio and some constraints specific to micromachine paying
the possibilities are endless it is not ultra flexible defragmentation
xp network blew the audio is not the case here
Against expected by the VSTI develop
So here is mainly for mixing and editing audio
I used a D2424 LV so I can come and go as I want to map HDSP fat and adat
Well sometimes it picks
The basic system is very focused musicians
the audio plugin in every free app for the audio in the south to the sequencer via effects ...
# This software + hardware is stable?
yes it nothing to do with pay.
The multimedia system is complete and is accessed via any kind of soft Manager source software there's good in the
it makes me that I board it and I'm not disappointed
it is not their fault but the fact of not being able to get our usual apps that can be off-putting
or to dualboot
And part MIDI is a bit of Hermeticism
if xp or vista to do there's no picture, it is little confusing at first
but we made it
the price? to give some guys working on it I think it is a good thing for the rest
for the use I have I am very pleased

ScahR's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Excellent distro!"
My machine is equipped with a Core 2 Quad, 3GB of RAM and a SATA drive 10.000tr/mn (The disk performance is important, I also take account of an SSD to maximize the performance of my machine). I turn on the 64bit version of Tango Studio.
Excellent performance, low latency with the core trs Low Latency (of around 6ms at 48kHz stable for me, but if I fall down, I have some "clashes" in the sound).
OS terribly stable, professional and trs. It is installed for more than 6 months on my machine, and never any worries! It Get You Started in 15 seconds, and never any crash, even using a lot of apps at the same time (Ardour, Audacity, Jack, console, etc ...). The disc scratching trend a little when working on many tracks at the same time (o my prvision buy a SSD), but even when fluid is trs ! (At the same time, one or two GB of RAM supplmentaires are not luxury!).
I use it for 6 months, I made several recordings with Ardour, including a model of my group, recorded, mixed and mastered the tools of this distribution.
Before, I tried Ubuntu Studio, and Studio64, I prfre far Tango Studio!
I would do without this choice hsiter and ds that the next version of the OS, Ubuntu 4.12 LTS down on out, I install it without hsiter!

aldjuan's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Tango Studio's home studio full free"
After installation there's more to compose or record live to complete his home through a software library that offers integrated Internet other software.
A dual core computer with 3GB of memory, a card as rock basic sound card Hoontech average.
Fast, efficient hyper stable.
8 months of use in dual boot with another linux distribution OpenArtist pre-configured.
A free system that can be addressed without installation or dual boot with soft audio of good quality, free see, there must be a problem for not trying.
Really! this can not be more than made up for those who, live or recorded.
