The Indamixx netbook is basically a Sylvania G Meso with a custom Linux software stack designed for audio production. While much of the software is open source, the Indamixx team has put a lot of time and energy into optimizing the system for musicians, DJs, and others interested in a portable digital audio workstation.
The machine comes preloaded with digital audio editing software, DJ softare, VST virtual instrument software, and a drum loop application with over 2900 drum sounds. It runs a custom Linux distribution called Transmission, which is apparently based on Ubuntu, becuase the Indamixx can reportedly run pretty much any application you can find in the Ubuntu 8.04 Hardy Heron repositories.
The Indamixx was first brought to my attention a few months ago. But the folks at SonicState got a chance to catch up with an Indamixx rep recently and shot a video overview of the device. You can see the full video below, but I learned two new things about the netbook from the interview: It gets about 3 hours of battery life, and right now it’s only available with Linux, but in a few months the Indamixx may be available in a dual boot configuration.
The Indamixx netbook is available in black and white from Amazon for $499.
