    64 Studio
    is a free and open source operating system based on Debian designed for creative users on x86-64 and legacy 32-bit hardware architectures. It intends to serve as an all-in-one solution for audio and video recording, editing, and other forms of media production.

    Since 64 Studio is distributed with a free software license, anyone with a 64-bit computer can install it on their computer in a single boot or multi-boot configuration.

    64 Studio Ltd. produces bespoke GNU/Linux distributions which are compatible with official Debian and Ubuntu releases. Specialising in multimedia and digital content creation platforms which they develop for their OEM partners, they also offer support, documentation services and consultancy. their software is already included in several shipping products in the professional audio market, with more to follow. In addition, they offer a free download product which has won critical acclaim for its stability and high performance.

    Differences with Debian

    The major differences between this distribution and basic Debian are a custom kernel with realtime patches applied, some pre-configuration and a custom package selection designed to meet the needs of creative desktop users. Other packages may also be modified to some extent, as are the basic GNOME desktop themes.

    Download 64 Studio

    The 64 Studio version 2.1 install image is around 800MB and requires a DVD-R. The 2.0 Live CD is smaller and can be burned to either CD-R or DVD-R. Both versions are available in 64-bit (labelled amd64) and 32-bit (labelled i386) builds, to run on almost all PCs.

    In the root directory of the CD you should see a readme file with basic installation instructions, with several translations available.

    To check your download is in good condition, please download the .md5sum file provided, and compare it with the iso image file; for example:

    $ md5sum 64studio_2.1_amd64.iso
    $ cat 64studio_2.1_amd64.iso.md5sum
    The output from the first command should be identical to the output from the second. If not, you need to download again. We recommend the wget program for reliable downloads.
