TuxMachines: Review: Google Pixel is Android at its best (if a little boring)

Friday 24th of February 2017 08:19:32 AM

Reddit: Podcasting with Linux?

Friday 24th of February 2017 03:37:59 AM

What's a good combo for software, plug-ins, configuration, and etc for podcasting with Linux? Is there anyone out there that uses Linux for podcast production? What do you use? I'm looking for something to accommodate a USB microphone and a cohost/guest coming in via Skype (or alternative). Ideally I'd like to have each speaker recorded on a separate track for ease of editing. What are some recommendations?
