howto find where a missing file is in editor


I have this error:
[ERROR]: Filesource: cannot find required file (/home/r/ex/glitch_glass-4-reverse.wav): No such file or directory

I was wondering what a good way for locating where this file is in the editor would be. I cannot find it in my project, but I could easily miss the ‘silence’ that it is replaced by, and notice it some time later.


you want to look in the .ardour file, and just search for the file name. its not stored in any odd way, and should be within the <Sources> node. If you really can’t find it, post a LINK to your .ardour file here, and someone else will take a look.
