Real-time kerneledit

The real-time kernel, first included with Ubuntu Studio 804, was modified for intensive audio, video or graphics work The 810 Ubuntu Studio release lacks this real-time kernel It has been reimplemented in the 904 Ubuntu Studio release and stabilized with the release of 910 1004 Ubuntu Studio, in contrast, does not include the real-time kernel by default As of version 1010 of the Ubuntu Studio, the real-time kernel is no longer available in the repositories6

Low-latency kerneledit

As of Ubuntu Studio 1204, the default kernel is linux-lowlatency, which in essence is a generic Ubuntu Linux kernel, with a tweaked configuration to allow for stable operation for audio applications at lower latencies Since much of the real-time patch has now been implemented into the vanilla kernel, and considering the difficulties in maintaining linux-rt, Ubuntu Studio decided on using linux-lowlatency in its place

The scheduler allows applications to request immediate CPU time, which can drastically reduce audio latency7 In 910, the "Ubuntu Studio Controls" provided under System>Administration permit the user to "Enable Nice", allowing the use of wireless networking and proprietary graphics cards drivers while maintaining low audio latency free of XRUNs audio drop-outs in JACK A more negative value entered for nice reserves more CPU time for real-time audio processes

Appearance and sound themeedit

Ubuntu Studio also includes custom artwork and a blue-on-black theme, as opposed to Ubuntu's default purple and orange As with the main distribution of Ubuntu, if an accelerated graphics card and appropriate driver are used, the advanced desktop effects can be enabled More advanced Compiz effects are available in the Synaptic Package Manager ie, Ubuntu repositories In Karmic 910, a fresh sound theme replaces the default Ubuntu theme, with a reverberating melody at startup, and an occasional knock or ping from a button or prompt Xfce instead of Unity is the default user interface

Access to Ubuntu repositoriesedit

An important advantage of Ubuntu Studio over most other Linux distributions employing the real-time kernel is access to the same repositories available to the main Ubuntu distributions through the Update Manager, Synaptic Package Manager, as well as through the Add/Remove Applications prompt This allows for much more frequent operating system updates, and access to a much wider range of software


In the past there has been no live version available of Ubuntu Studio, and no graphical installer Since the 1204 release, Ubuntu Studio has been available as a Live DVD8 The disk image is about 18 GB, too large to fit on a standard CD, and as a result the recommended installation medium for Ubuntu Studio is a DVD or USB flash drive Ubuntu Studio can also be installed on a pre-existing Ubuntu installation by installing the "ubuntustudio-desktop" package from Advanced Packaging Tool

In 910, the package "ubuntustudio-audio," shown during installation and also available in the Synaptic Package Manager, cannot be installed without a working Internet connection

An Internet connection is required after installation to maintain system components
