I use Open Source, GPL'd software for all my Audio and Video projects (and, well just about everything else, too). Here's a quick summary of what I'm using right now for Audio production and performance.
After doing some performance debugging on mysql running in a vm I found the mysqld service refused to start. The log files showed nothing other than it exiting with an exit code of 1.
Running mysqld from the command line (with sudo -u mysql mysqld -v) also gave nothing useful.
Finally I found a suggestion to run:
sudo -u mysql mysqld_safe --log-error=/tmp/mysql.log
The second of my two audition pieces for entry to UNE's Bachelor of music. SOOoooo much room for improvement but it got me through :-)
The Foggy, Foggy Dew is a traditional English folk song, this being the version created and popularised by Benjamin Britten. It is a somewhat cheeky tale of a love from years ago complete with thinly-veiled justification for following one's heart.

Lasciatemi morire is from Claudio Monteverdi's opera L'Arianna. It is Ariadne's lament at being abandoned by her love on the island of Naxos.
Huge thanks to Jason Barry-Smith who got me to this stage with a sum total of three singing lessons in my life!
