Ardour Bug


(Joelnash) #1

Ardour isn’t saving properly. When I reload a session the tempo is suddenly 3mins beyond the audio I have i the session. And it doesn’t let me readjust it?
How can this bug be fixed?

Many thanks,

J

Could you please clarify what you mean by this and rephrase the question? I have a hard time to understand what the issue is that you mean to report.

If this indeed a bug, it would be best reported at http://tracker.ardour.org/ - Ideally include an example session or describe how to reproduce the issue. Also: which version of Ardour are you using?

I’m on a the Pi-top OS on the Raspberry Pi 3. and I’ve used sudo apt-get install ardour. This download and I can playback files smoothly but, the issue I have is that the first time I reopen a session (after saving) some vital features don’t work. In this case the tempo is unresponsive and is not in a position that it was left in.
I hope this is a clearer explanation?

many thanks

Yes, thanks. Which version of Ardour is that? Ardour Menu > Help > About.

There were some issues with tempo-markers. e.g. Ardour 5.10 fixes an issues with “Fix failure to load old tempo maps.” (https://ardour.org/news/5.10.html) and 5.11 had some more tempo/time-signature fixes.

The version I have is:

Ardour 5.5.0
“The Plateaux of Mirror”
(rev 1.5.5.0~dfsg-1) 32bit

Please upgrade to Ardour 5.12. Your distribution may not have it, in which case get it from http://ardour.org/download

There’s no reason to be using such an old version of the program.

This was solved by upgrading to 5.12 - see Instructions to Install Ardour On Pi
