I would like to try using a volume-rider plug in to see if it would smooth out my podcast editing cycle, but obviously I don’t want to spend money on something that I can’t use on Linux.
What I want to achieve is levelling out the volume of long spoken word tracks which are typically a little inconsistent over an hour or more of recording.
From what I can tell Waves Vocal Rider is the best known tool for this, but it looks like HoRNet Autogain does something similar. Are either of these able to work with a Linux installation of Ardour? If not, is there an alternative that does?
