Global LUA Scripts


I have scripts that I need in every single project that I create, because it is used to import the various tracks of our recorded band session.
However, every time I create a new project, I have to manually add the LUA script to the LUA Scripts menu. Isn’t there a way to globally register a LUA script so that is is available whenever I start a fresh project?


In upcoming Ardour6 Editor/GUI scripts are no longer session dependent, but global (like preferences).

For 5.x there is no reliable way. The most recently used session defines scripts for new sessions (saved in ~/.config/ardour5/instant.xml, unless you use session-templates, in which case template overrides the scripts.

Thanks, Robin, that also answers my question why I kind of remembered, that I had situations where the scripts WERE available on a new session.
