Two problems, actually.
1) There's a prospect of my being able to acquire CorelDraw for
Linux in the near future.
So I looked it up. The wretched thing is described as being
configured for Debian: I use common-or-garden Redhat.
Can anyone forsee any problems with this?
2) A friend has some software from, I think, SoundForge,
whereby he can plug in his turntable to his computer and store
an analogue file for subsequent (a) converting to digital and
(b) editing---meaning that BLOODY piano pedal squeak that
ruins any enjoyment of a certain jazz LP could be edited out.
(Alright, apologies for introducing coarse and unseemly language into
SLUG's driven snow. I was overcome at the prospect of a resurrection.)
Unfortunately, the friend is a follower, if reluctantly, of Microsoft.
He couldn't tell me whether there's analogous software for Linux.
Has anyone any experience of this type of software?
Any comments would be gratefully received.
