Ubuntu Studio


Last Update: 2024-04-27 05:12 UTC


An official variant of Ubuntu, Ubuntu Studio is a Linux-based operating system for creative individuals in the areas of audio production, video production, graphics design, photography and desktop publishing. It makes professional audio accessible on Linux; it uses the JACK sound server and a kernel built with a low-latency patch. Up until version 20.10 Ubuntu Studio shipped with the Xfce desktop environment, but this was replaced by KDE Plasma in October 2020.

  • To compare the software in this project to the software available in other distributions, please see our Compare Packages page.
  • Notes: In case where multiple versions of a package are shipped with a distribution, only the default version appears in the table. For indication about the GNOME version, please check the "nautilus" and "gnome-shell" packages. The Apache web server is listed as "httpd" and the Linux kernel is listed as "linux". The KDE desktop is represented by the "plasma-desktop" package and the Xfce desktop by the "xfdesktop" package.
  • Colour scheme: green text = latest stable version, red text = development or beta version. The function determining beta versions is not 100% reliable due to a wide variety of versioning schemes.

I was looking for a distro focused on music production, because I wanted to see how much difference there was with Windows.
I could install Debian and follow some guides to optimize it for my goal, but I wanted something ready to use without doing anything.
When I realized that there was a version of Ubuntu specifically build for this reason, I had to give it a try.

It's still Ubuntu, that means that it's fairly easy to use; the only reason why I didn't like that much was for the Snap situation.
Anyway, the installation process was pretty straightforward and easy to understand, I didn't have any issues.

I really like the fact that has a low latency kernel, and that it comes with a lot of useful software.
Ardour is a great daw, and there is a good choice of plugins to use. You can use LV2 plugins as well as VST, which is great.
The Jack server also works great, and I like to set it up using Patchance, one of the preinstalled apps.
There are also some good instruments (like a synth called "Yoshimi"), along with useful audio programming software like pure-data (I'm using that in one of my university classes).

The default desktop is a custom themed version of KDE; it may not be super lightweight, but if you have a decent pc you will have no issues running that. It also looks good and it is pretty well organized.

Anyway, this distro is also useful if you are into video editing or graphic design, there's a lot of software also for that.
But this is in my opinion the reason why I'm not giving a 10 out of 10: the installer won't let me choose what software I want, but it will install everything. That means that I will have to remove manually all of the useless (for me obviously) apps. You can actually achieve that by installing any of the Ubuntu flavors and than use the official Ubuntu Studio install script, which it will let you choose what to install.

I've tried other distros like AV Linux, and despite the fact that AV features a newer version of Adrour (8.2.0 vs 7.5.0) and even more plugins, I don't like the direction where it's going. That means that I will stick with Ubuntu Studio.

I have been looking for a new distribution since OpenSuSE has been failing to fix certain things, namely the multimedia codecs and the fact that many packages keep failing their download checksums. I have been pleasantly surprised by Ubuntu Studio 23.04 which has worked flawlessly with whatever I have thrown at it, and it has stayed nimble quick and always responsive.

I do wish that it had a single administration application, as i really miss Yast from SuSE which really spoiled me. The selection of software is also great, and stuff just works.

I will in the future be looking to download and configure many applications useful for architecture (I am an architect) and I think now maybe there is a critical mass in that space, and I can find enough applications to build a completely useful and free software stack to do architectural work.

I tried to use Ubuntu Studio gain, after past not the best experiences with Audio Studio.
This time version 22.10.
The whole OS is fine, the preinstalled packages might be useful for graphics and video production, but audio part of it is useless. From a professional audio production point of view.
I understand the postponed move towards PipeWire audio structure. It is immature, and unreliable for audio production using pro Audio/MIDI interfaces.
However, the Ubuntu Studio Audio Package with Studio Controls interface is a total mess.
Being a pro audio engineer, using many pro audio production applications and hardware, Pro Tools licensed, composer, musician, etc, etc... I have never figured out how to properly setup the Studio Controls with ridiculously over-complicated structures of Pulse-Jack-ALSA-tweaks--bridges-backends-devices-childish looking mixers-etc, etc...
I have never made my audio interfaces work. The online instructions on Ubuntu Community Help Wiki is old, and it does not reflect the current Studio Controls interface.
Yes, I finally found the way to make my audio interface work:
I uninstalled the whole Audio Studio Package (sic!!!). Then I could hear the interface outputs.
Thus... why to use Ubuntu Studio for audio production?
