Comments about Indamixx Netbook Portable Studio Special Edition (SE):
This mini-notebook is simply amazing! It is packed with powerful music software such as Energy XT, Ardour, and Hydrogen Drums. The Indamixx has unlimited possibilities for creating virtually anything that strikes your imagination. This compact little unit is great for a musician on the go. Indamixx is the wave of the future with it's Linux operating system. It's screaming fast, has plenty of drive space, and multiple ports. Windows users not familiar with "Jack" or this operating system may have some frustration navigating in it's environment. Plan to purchase Indamixx? It is essential to first read the manuals loaded in the machine once it arrives. In addition, if you are considering this portable music studio for your own, also be sure to confirm device compatibility. Guitar players may have some difficulty finding an audio interface that will run on Linux. Good pre-purchase research will save you some chedda. Nothing compares in this price range.
