Edit: Ok, I need to start reading things more carefully! I understand the Ableton isn't a player but rather a loop sequencer. I don't use loop sequencers, but here's an article I found http://www.linuxjournal.com/node/1000304 and here's a list of stuff: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Linux...re#Synthesizers and http://linux-sound.org/loopers.html



I've never used Ableton, but there are tons of music players for Linux.

My favorite is Amarok 1.4 (version 2.0 did not sit well with me)

Then there's:

Banshee which I did not like, but some people do (they're wrong)
XMMS Never tried this one
Beep which is based on XMMS
Zinf Never tried this one either
RhythmBox Supposedly the best Linux player for using an iPod with. I don't own an iPod so I don't know.
juK Another one I haven't tried.
soma looks kind of rough around the edges, but I hear good things.
MPlayer and VLC are kind of like the nuclear Swiss Army Knives of Linux audio/video software. Powerful, flexible, and potentially hazardous to your sanity. :D


There's dozens, if not hundreds, of others. Look in your distro's package manager program and you'll very likely find all of the above programs and many more ready for installation.
