Rather than have the dialog box popup asking for the session name & template etc, is it possible to pass these as arguments from the command line, and have ardour take you straight into the main program?
Also, is it possible to ‘export’ to WAV offline, i.e. pass an argument to ardour which would process the given session file and spit out a wav file without launching the gui?
No answer till now? That would be of interest for me too.
Going off memory I don’t believe it is possible, but could be wrong. I strongly suggest looking in Mantis and seeing if this feature request is in there, and if it isn’t putting one in there.
you can add some more in a feature request of mine
On Fedora Linux I’ve always done …
/usr/local/bin/ardour6 -a -n /fhome/dathho/Ardour6\ Sessions/Basic/ >> ~/ARDLOG/ardour6.log 2>&1 &
to load my basic Studio setup automatically and start everything up. Jack is always running from the following script first …
echo ‘Cleaning up old logs and procs.’
killall -9 a2jmidid qmidinet jackd ardour5 mixxx qsynth
echo ‘Starting jackd via dBus and configuring…’

I might suggest starting a new topic for this, the last time this topic has gotten a post (And some of the above info is out of date as a result) was over 8 years ago.
