Linux distro focuses on audio recording

" Trinity Audio Group announced an upgrade to its Linux-based "audio operating system," with an improved user interface, the real-time kernel 2.6.31, and a player that lets users change the speed of a song without altering pitch. "Transmission 4.0" is available as a download, on a USB stick, or preloaded on a netbook or ultra-mobile PC (UMPC), the company says.

"Trinity's audio-centric Linux software was originally based on 64Studio, a community project that maintains a Linux distribution for creative content professionals, such as A/V producers and recording engineers. Last year, however, the company ported its suite to a Transmission 3.0 Linux distro that was said to be based on Ubuntu Linux 9.04.

"The newly announced Transmission 4.0 release is now said to be based on a Linux 2.6.31 real-time kernel, with a GNOME-based user interface "for easier navigation." According to Trinity, a key addition is Stretchplayer, an audio file player that allows a user to change the speed of a song without changing the pitch."
