Hi, Natalia. Since you're new, you should also know that the etiquette on  
this list is to post on the bottom of the quoted text when replying, not on  
the top.

As for your question, it will work perfectly fine for you to just install  
the Ubuntu Studio metapackages: ubuntustudio-audio,  
ubuntustudio-audio-plugins, ubuntustudio-graphics and ubuntustudio-video.  
You should probably not install the ubuntustudio-desktop packages due to  
some conflicts with the regular Ubuntu desktop. This is why the  
instructions link you to the Ubuntu Studio Preparation page. That page is  
actually just a guide to installing most of the individual packages to be  
found in Ubuntu Studio, which essentially makes your machine like Ubuntu  
Studio, just without certain features (as the first line in the  
instructions indicates).

In the end, I'd recommend just downloading the metapackages, minus desktop,  
because this also updates certain config files (like  
/etc/security/limits.conf) for you.
