  • Operating System: Linux
The second annual Sonoj Convention ( ) will be taking place this upcoming October 27th-28th 2018 in Cologne, Germany.
The convention is focusing on the combination of music production and open source software with a priority on practical music production.

At Sonoj there will be talks, demonstrations, and workshops from demonstrating basic workflows to detailed instructions on how to subtly improve your sound.
While the event will take place in Germany, all presentations and workshops will be in English, recorded and streamed to make them easily accessible to a wide audience.

We want to welcome everyone, regardless of your musical or technical background.
To get a better idea of what to expect out of Sonoj, you can find information and recordings from last year's convention in our archives:  ( )

As it was last year, admission to the convention is free, though donations are very much welcome.

- Visitor Registration is now possible. The space is limited so please register on our website now. ( )

- We are looking for talks, demonstrations and workshops. If you would like to contribute, please send an informal and short e-mail with your ideas to
Sonoj is about making music. You do not need to be a developer of software, in fact we are more happy about actual musicians and users of software.

- Donations are very welcome. Even if you don't attend personally please consider supporting a non-profit event to promote open source music making and production. We accept direct bank transfer and paypal (  )

I would like to put a little more weight on the search for OpenMPT people with this extra reply.

It would be really great to have someone there to show an audience in an hour long demo/talk (musicians, but most likely not tracker users) what is special about trackers in general and OpenMPT in particular.  Ideally this would be very music centric. Starting by playing a finished piece of music, that ideally would be hard to make with a non-tracker software, and then show examples of how it was done.

If that sounds as good to you as to me please send me an e-mail to

As menitoned on IRC it sounds interesting, but I doubt I will have the time to go there and come up with something presentable.
