Is anyone using GrandOrgue with Ardour on Windows?
I’m fairly new to Ardour, but I’ve been using GrandOrgue heavily for many years, and I need them to play nice together.
They don’t seem to want to share the audio hardware. When Ardour starts its audio engine, G.O. goes silent until I stop Ardour’s audio engine and hit G.O.'s panic button. I tried using Jack, but G.O. didn’t like it.
At the very least, I need to send MIDI from Ardour to G.O.; G.O. can record its own audio output to a file, which I can import into Ardour. The MIDI events are getting sent & received just fine, but Ardour doesn’t want to play at all without its audio engine turned on, and then I can’t hear G.O. That’s a problem because I need to clean up the MIDI tracks in Ardour, which I can’t do without hearing G.O.
Is there some way I can use Ardour strictly as a MIDI sequencer, without it touching the audio hardware (drivers)?
