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
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)
which I did not like, but some people do (they're wrong)XMMS
Never tried this oneBeep
which is based on XMMSZinf
Never tried this one eitherRhythmBox
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
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.
