" 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."
