I would like to know if there’s a parameter somewhere to change the speed at which the gain if changed when changing the mute/solo state of a track ? I would like to have it very slow (like 1 or 2 seconds).
There is no configuration for this. The slope is hard-coded (approx 1/25Hz = 40ms exponential fade).
PS. It may be a good feature request, something to add in a future version.
right now, you could edit the source and re-compile (but that’ll also affect other fades, not only mute):
Thanks a lot, I’m currently studying the subject on how to set up a compiling environment, using a linux virtual machine on Windows, to cross-recompile a Windows version of Ardour (unfortunately I have to work on Windows for my other tasks). I will probably need to recompile anyway, as my needs are a bit unusual.
Maybe it would be easier to write a small plugin in LUA to implement this feature (don’t know how to do this either) ?
Depends what you need. Replacing mute/solo logic with a script isn’t possible. But if all you need is a plugin that has an automatable “Mute Button”, that could be a Lua script. e.g.
A quick example (based on a-amp) http://paste.debian.net/1062435/ (save to
PS. Line 24
lpf = 100 / rate -- interpolation time constant – the smaller the time-constant, the slower the fade
This is exactly what I need.
Thank you very much !
