Thanks you for the support and excuse me for the fault english is not my native language.

Hi jonalynkrauth !

Read this:

In Spotlight (upper right corner on your mac) search for " libcurl 1.4 ".

If it is not in your system try to do a softwareupdate (Apple icon).


thank you everything work perfect now , but i would like to find the manual o nthis site but i can’t , do you know where is it?


you’ll find “The manual” link to follow.
There’s an unofficial one as well, pretty good to start with Ardour:


thank you , i was trying a way to load VSTi(edit / record midi) but it seems it will only be possible with V3.

We do not support VST on OS X and we don’t plan to. We support AU on OS X, but you are correct that you cannot edit or record MIDI yet. You can also run VST (or AU) plugins in other simple hosts and connect them to Ardour via JACK.

i try to do it with mutools but i cant do it , do you know where i can find tut about this?
