KALI Linux Transformed

In the beginning (sounds epic huh?), I recorded and created music using a Yamaha MT-120 4 track recorder. As usual technology advanced, and I switched to Syntech’s Studio One sequencer using a Commodore 64 with a Sonus MIDI interface, which eventually led to the Atari 1040STe using the Sonus Masterpiece sequencer. Finally came Windows 95, with all of it’s bells and whistles around 1997 (Finally, affordable Red Book CD Burning).

Well, It was time to break the learning curve once again. After much research, I’ve successfully turned KALI Linux into a Digital Audio Workstation. And why exactly would I create a Digital Audio Workstation originally designed to be a  Penetration Testing and Security Auditing Workstation? Easy answer …I use the best Security Auditing tool to monitor my networks, and as always, wondered if I could just make it happen. Might as well multi-task fun as well              😀           …Next up: Linux based Music.

By now I believe everyone has at least heard of Linux, Ubuntu being the most popular version. KALI is a bit different, and was never meant to be transformed into a Digital Audio Workstation. Here’s the description from kali.org:

Kali Linux is a Debian-based Linux distribution aimed at advanced Penetration Testing and Security Auditing. Kali contains several hundred tools which are geared towards various information security tasks, such as Penetration Testing, Security research, Computer Forensics and Reverse Engineering. Kali Linux is developed, funded and maintained by Offensive Security, a leading information security training company.
