Hi,
I've included in my MX-LMDE respin additional multimedia-tools too. It's not a studio version, but good editing tools like avidemux, audacity, handbrake, xfca-audioconverter and the winamp clone qmmp. For cd-ripping I've installed abcde with plugins and mkcue. For ripping DVDs dvd95 and devede included. For burning I've including xcdroast. A tool by a german developer based on cd-record and mkisofs.
for those with an eye for the finer details...

Darn.. I use MX18 as my desktop/laptop daily OS for everything except audio and midi recording as the latency is so bad, hydrogen simple 4 beat was so out of sync I had to give up just making a simple 4 beat for playing my music along with. My default kernel is what ever comes with MX when you install it from the DVD/iso. 4.19 I believe. Sooo....any update? AV Linux is nice but it loads so very slow from the DVD that it boggles me mind. It does however, work good for the audio and midi. I used it to test sound cards I bought on ebay to test they worked. So hey hey! Linux is better than windows when you can test hardware without having to install drivers first and risk crashing the OS IF the card is bad or the drivers are wrong. Anywho, since MX is so friendly and well put together I wanted a MUSIC/Pro AUDIO production version. We are in May 2019 so something should be out there right?

Any distro will be slow loading from DVD, better to use a USB key instead. And much better still to install and run it from an internal HD or preferably an SSD.
Why don't you install AVLinux rather than running it live? That's what I use and it boots incredibly fast and is very responsive. And I'm the person who made the MXStudio respin, which is based on AVLinux anyway.
I am planning to do an update of MXStudio in a couple of months but it won't be substantially different than installing the current iso and doing a full upgrade.

Try one of the Liquorix kernels from the MX Test repo instead.

Liquorix kernel is used in MXStudio but there are a few other tweaks to make it more optimised for low latency audio use.

Also it would be nice if you don't full quote posts but edit it to only show which part you are actually replying to.

Wow guys! Thankyou for the responses! It shows that there are more interested parties out there for this like me. Well as for AVlinux,and installing it instead of Live DVD, I actually wanted a live, READ ONLY full fledged Music OS like what loads on a Korg Kronos 2 keyboard(this uses Linux and a mini itx intel PC inside),but without having to pay $3000 for it. And yes, it would be on an SSD. BUT, MXlinux is just more familiar to me as it is what I use everyday as my desktop OS. My goal, MX or AVL is the same, a fast loading READ ONLY SSD based Music production OS that runs off RAM in real time but has a separate writable disk or partition for music recordings,downloads,samples, and so on. Now peep this, I have succeeded at DDing such a MXlinux live to USB flash or USB HDD/SSD, with said separate partition BUT, it only boots off USB, not off the SATA bus!! So no internal SSD read only drive OS yet.
