Ardour crashes on startup in OS X

Maybe this means something to someone… I load latest Jack… set it up as instructed… start it running with correct audio drivers… then run Ardour and this is what I get… naturally there’s more… but this may mean something to soemone…
I’ve been working on this for 2 days now. … 81 crashes!! getting nowhere…
and apart from this forum… where is Ardour contact info??

Jump on IRC (See the support tab above) and ask there, I haven’t seen this particular problem before so it will likely take some time to work out and IRC is a much better area to solve that on as it is realtime as opposed to the forums which will take some time.



Try removing the 2C Aether plugin and see if the problem goes away.
