"I previously blogged about my satisfactory experience with Arch Linux installation on a second-hand laptop. Now in this post I'm going to turn that $150 laptop into a kick-ass and sexy Amp and Effect Processor. In fact, we will see how lightweight tendency of Arch Linux helps us to achieve a low latency/high quality playback on a computer that is considered somehow outdated in today's world. Furthermore, we're going demonstrate the obvious fact that GNU/Linux has already reached the maturity suitable for (semi-)professional audio needs.

"Honestly, The idea of buying an audio interface came to me quite unexpectedly as I was initially looking for a rather basic solid-state amplifier for my newly bought Guitar.

Just for the record, Guitar Rig Kontrol is an audio interface/pedalboard that pairs with an accompanying software called Guitar Rig Pro to make a solid bass and electric guitar solution"
