Been lurking around here and checking in from time to time.
Ardour seems nice.
I can’t help but think that the developers could pretty much copy pro tools workflow/editing style (mouse click behavior, smart tool, editing style) and they would have a HUGE user base.
Tons of people (including myself) are tired of avids financial way of doing things etc.
There could even be several “modes”.
Native mode, which has the original Ardour keyboard layout/mouse click etc behavior.
Then a Pro tools mode where it comes and close as possible to using pro tools.
Then a logic mode
I’m pretty sure a lot of people would switch from pro tools to another daw in an instant (lots of them) if they could find a daw that pretty much copied the essential workflow.
Just a thought.
