Nice List. You have Bitwig studio, Tracktion waveform is now a good one to be included in your list...


Thanks, you're right. There's also REAPER, which has a Linux version as well. Considering Waveform now has a free version, that's the optimal choice for this list. I'll add it.

Thanks for starting the discussion! Do you mean the list is sparse? Please feel free to make suggestions, I'll be happy to extend the list. Meanwhile, I've just added Bitwig Studio for music production and Hyper for a familiar, cross-platform terminal experience.

I think ittyhoss was talking about the comments section of this list...
