@sir ok. So I’m using an old old license for CuBase 3SX and the Ozone 3 plug in which I bought for a “song” back in 08 after someone upgraded to Pro Tools.
Ozone is a mastering suite
Ardour I am told is a good DAW on Linux. Audacity is great for clipping and stitching stuff together and doing post processing. Both have a shit tonne of FOSS audio plug-ins plus commercial offerings
I’m just used to CuBase’s work flow
