I´m working with Ardour 2.4.1. on Ubuntu 7.10 now.
While EXPORTING 32-bit projects (or parts of it) to a 32-bit-WAV-file the file will be created but it plays nothing but silence (in VLC for example).
Next I open this exported file in Audacity - and here it is!
So I export it once more: from Audacity to a 32-bit-WAV-file - and now it works on any player; same file, same size…
The only difference between the 2 files I could find is :
exported from Ardour “araw” is mentionend as codec,
from Audacity it´s “aflt” .
Thanks a lot for information,
I´m so happy to work with Ardour these days!
