Input meter in Recorder Tab w/ Pipewire


I am running Ardour 6.8 on pipewire 0.3.32 (jack). There appears to be an issue with the input meters at the bottom of the recorder tab: while the input meters are active for any connected tracks, the meters for the hardware inputs do not register any signal. I experience this behaviour on both my machines.

Using either native jack or alsa backends, the meters work as expected. Is this an Ardour bug or rather something to be fixed in pipewire? Is there any solution/workaround?

Thanks for any suggestions.


If it works with JACK, it’s a pipewire bug.

Thanks, Robin.
