I’m new to Ardour and have some questions. I’m about to start making music again after many years break.
I have a bunch of questions that I haven’t been able to find answers to. Some relating to Ardour and setting up gear. Others regarding advice on what gear to buy to get the most out of Ardour.
So, here we go…
I need a sound card and a midi keyboard/controller that will work seamlessly with Ardour.
I’ve been eyeing the Behringer UMC404HD for the soundcard. Alternatively the Focusrite Scarlett series.
For the midi, I’ve been looking at the Nektar Impact LX25+ or the Akai MPK Mini MK2.
Will this gear work seamlessly with Ardour? What are your experiences?
A more general question about midi controllers, will all controllers work with Ardour or are there differences in drivers and so on?
I bought a used M-Audio Firewire 410, but I haven’t been able to get it working on Ardour on Ubuntu Studio 18.04. The driver is not loaded for the firewire.
