Keep different versions of Ardour

Hi everyone, I have Ardour 2.8.16 on my Macbook Pro, it works great, but now that 4.0 version has been released, I’d like to try it before uninstalling the prevoius (both are demo/free versions). Is it a good idea to keep two versions at the same time, or do I risk some conflicts between them? Thank you.

If you get packages from, you can have as many versions installed at one time as you wish. There is no interaction between Ardour 2.x and Ardour 3.x or 4.x whatosoever. Different versions of 4.x will all use the same preferences files.

Ok, thanks. (Maybe my comment will appear twice, that’s what happens in the preview.)
