Uncropped screenshot of Tracktion Waveform page. [Standard disclaimer: The Waveform DAW is used for editing and mixing on Ubuntu Studio; the tracks also incorporate sounds playing or triggered on other PCs and devices. This isn't a "score" so much as a form of notekeeping (I prefer these colored blocks, monotonous though they may be, to (a) the Soundcloud waveform with "this rocks"-level superimposed commentary or (b) YouTube demos showing dudes' hairy hands turning knobs.]

In the screenshot many of the tracks and clips are named so there's no need for a complete track breakdown. This tune combines live recordings from a Eurorack synth (SIDGuts, SIDGuts Deluxe modules) with a couple of software sythesizers (Plogue Chipsounds, Arturia SEM V2). The softsynths (which don't have Linux versions) are played on a Windows PC and recorded individually into the Tracktion Waveform DAW running on a Linux PC. On the Linux side, the Multisampler track plays percussion and the Collective ROMpler plays the piano at the end.

Tracks (Tracktion Waveform DAW on Windows 7 PC):
1.-2. A tuned percussion hit playing from a Eurorack module (I forget which one) is processed with a couple of types of delay. On Track 1 it's recorded dry and processed through Tracktion's "Tape Delay" plugin, which also adds hiss (hence the song's title). On Track 2 the delay FX are from a Eurorack module (I forget which one), recorded directly into Waveform with no DAW effects added.
3. Loop of Reaktor Memory Drum sequence
4. Loop of Reaktor Monark softsynth played with Reaktor Monoliner sequencer
5. Loop of ADDAC wav player module percussion processed through Reaktor Reflektor reverb plugin
