I decided to try ardour since i work a lot with ambisonic and i was told that the routing in ardour was very flexible. It was really easy to have my ambisonic setup going (5channel 2nd order 2D ambisonics sound files), and I’m positively surprised with the matturity of the program.
Still, i encountered some problems:
- I cannot reorder the tracks. When i try to click and drag the name of a track in the left pane of the mixer, the name of the track mirror flipped hovers about and when i let it go nothing happens.
- Plug-ins generated in max/msp (audiounits) always appear to have -1 channels, and therefore don’t work. They work fine in other programs.
- Impossible to change the master bus maximum number of channels (a very nice user at the IRC taught me how to do this by editing the ardour session file).
OSX 10.5.2 macbook pro
ardour 2.3 intel 3128
and finally, I would like to know how to use multiple instances of a mono plug-in in a multichannel track.
great work !
