Subject description: I need a lightweight .pet/sfs to use my netbook as a portastudio
 

Greetings,
I am running puppeee 1.0 based on 4.3 on the eeepc 4g surf.
I am looking for a program that i can use to record a track of audio, then play into headphones while i record another track. a looping function would be handy, and i need the ability to mix down to a mp3 or other common standard audio file.
quality does not need to be high as it is just for making silly practice songs with voice and guitar when im travelling.
just like the old cassette portastudios.
the hardware of the eeepc should be more than good enough and i only need one channel at a time. simplicity is important because im not into learning to use massive audio mastering packages like vst or rosegarden.
hopefully something the kids can use too!

if there is only something for lupu then i suppose i can install to usb stick but i rather prefer puppeee.
thanks.

I don't know anything about the Puppy version you are using. Most Puppy versions have Precord in their Menu -> Multimedia section, which is a simple program that might do what you want. Most of them also have mhWaveEdit, which is more powerful.

No, nooo not mp3 Shocked. Please look into OGG/Vorbis it's superior, technically and in reality Very Happy.

ogg is fine, i just want something simple.
i have mhwaveedit but there is no overdub function.
i think someone will know what i mean,... i want to make a track with only me playing one instrument at a time.

Try audacity - it has a nice intuitive interface... don't think it does looping though.

Maybe the guys making Puppy Studio knows about such?

Okay it is Ubuntu Studio but they could have heard from those who use that one what kind of program that do Porta Studio kind of looping.

Yeah, puppy studio is really good, and, with the exception of looping, Audacity is a good multitrack recording app. For looping and sequencing, you might try LMMS. For drums, check out Hydrogen.
