I decided to change my OS from Windows to Linux. I think that Mint will be the best for me because I want something like Windows with better performance and security. I don't know what's better Debian Edition or Standard.
If you are very new to Linux, I would suggest you don't use the Debian Edition just yet.
But I need to work E-MU 0404 USB, Microphone, Synths, VST plugins and Ableton to work PERFECTLY.
I've read that this is possible but I need to be 100% sure.
Apart from Ableton you are talking gibberish too me
I'm assuming E-MU 0404 USB, Microphone, Synths and VST plugins are all hardware or software that goes into Ableton? See this thread on Ableton: http://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.php?f=49&t=78072&start=0
You can run Ableton on Wine, which is a Windows compatiblity layer on Linux.
And that's why I need your honest answer: Mint, other Distro or maybe it's better to stay on Windows.
Having no experience with any of the things you mentioned, which you want to run perfectly, and you want to give Linux Mint a shot to see if you can migrate to that, I'd say install Linux Mint alongside Windows in a dual-boot configuration. Then follow the guides on Wine and Ableton and see if you can get everything to work as you want.
If you want to do media creation, but don't need the Windows software, you may want to look into Ubuntu Studio. They have loaded their distro with Linux native media creation software.
