I’ve got a strange problem with one of my sessions.
I’m on Debian 10, i7-4770 and with 16gb of RAM, Ardour 5.12.
So the problem is that this session hangs my system. Or Ardour itself.
I can’t add a new track, I can’t save session or even exit the program because it just hangs.
Sometimes it hangs the system, as I wrote before. I’ve tried to make such basic operations in other sessions and, surprise, I can add tracks to them, I can save them and I can even close Ardour. Fantastic.
And yes, I know, safe mode with plugins turned off - I’ve tried it. No luck here too - this session keeps hanging even in safe mode. I’ve also tried to disconnect all inputs and outputs (I had problems with Ardour before, such as sound not working at all and got them solved by “reconnecting” the virtual audio I/O) and still no luck. Finally, I’ve tried to disable monitoring (see problem above, I’ve solved it that way too), but that ain’t helped too.
So, what should I do? I need that session and I don’t want to throw it away because of some sort of bug.
