As far as I know, mixbus is based on the ardour2 baseline. Do I understand that mixbus on Windows is also based on the ardour2 baseline ? This is a little confusing when seablade mentions that the windows port of ardour will only be available for A3 (but I might have misunderstood)
I don’t work for Harrison, but I have been watching the windows port commits for, well, as long as they’ve been happening. There has been a huge amount of work gone on in the windows port; I count a total of 159 svn commit log messages, starting back in July 2011.
It’s been quite exciting watching the commit logs, to tell you the truth, even though I’m not a Windows user in the main. Having Windows as a supported platform should increase the revenue into the project, and that’s a good thing.
For grins and giggles, I diffed (using diff -uNr) the mixbus2 and mixbus2-win trees (at revision 11447, current as of my writing this post); a ‘patch’ to take the mixbus2 tree to mixbus2-win is quite large, over 16MB in length (uncompressed, and only touching text files, and not including the closed-source Harrison DSP).
So a great deal of work indeed.
