KXStudio is a collection of tools and tweaks, targeted at audio and video production.
KXStudio is also a Linux Distribution, currently based on Ubuntu 12.04.
Although focused on GNU/Linux, some of our tools work in other Operating Systems.
KXStudio is divided into 5 categories:
We provide a large set of applications and tools that will help users in a variety of ways.
This includes, but it's not limited to, an application launcher, a JACK patchbay, and a multi-plugin host.
(Note that this is not the list of applications available in KXStudio as distro, but our custom applications developed in-house). More Info »
Cross-Platform Audio Plugins supporting both LV2 and VST plugin standards, using Juce and Qt4.
These plugins are managed by a different project (in order to keep the KXStudio project clean), but still made by the same team.
See http://distrho.sourceforge.net/ for more details.
Our DeviantArt page contains artwork related to KXStudio (as Desktop).
It's usually dark themes, using QtCurve for cross-desktop compatibility (Gtk2, Qt3/KDE3 and Qt4/KDE4).
(A Gtk3 theme is underway, but not yet complete. See Development:TODO if you want to help).
Although not really KXStudio specific, system tweaks can you help improve the overall performance.
All configs and tweaks are checked by our own 'Cadence' application, so you'll know when something's missing.
Ubuntu repositories (PPAs) are available, to ease the installation of new software.
