duplicate track name

How do I fix a duplicate port name when I can’t open the session to fix it?

I tried to name my track “click” and now it is telling me there is already a “click/out1” and wont let me start session.

Make a backup of your session file, then edit the file with a text editor(It is just XML). You should be able to search for click and edit it as needed.

ALWAYS make a backup first.


got it thanks.

also note that this is already fixed (“prevented”) in ardour 2.8.4
