Do not use git-master at this point in time, unless you have very good reason. There are lot more open ends, looping is pretty much broken at this point in time. Also keep in mind that Ardour6-pre/git session-format is not frozen. Sessions created today may or may not load tomorrow. Stay with 5.12 for any work, except for development of Ardour, until Ardour 6.0 is released.
DO NOT USE git master UNLESS YOU UNDERSTAND THAT YOU ARE TESTING A
DEVELOPMENT VERSION THAT IS UNDERGOING SUBSTANTIAL, DEEP CODE REDESIGN.

Running directly from the source-tree will skip the warning (we assume you know what you are doing), but otherwise starting Ardour6-pre shows a dialog:
Welcome to this pre-release build of Ardour There are still several issues and bugs to be worked on, as well as general workflow improvements, before this can be considered release software. So, a few guidelines:
- Please do NOT use this software with the expectation that it is stable or reliable though it may be so, depending on your workflow.
- Please wait for a helpful writeup of new features.
Please do NOT use the forums at ardour.org to report issues.
Please do NOT file bugs for this alpha-development versions at this point in time.
There is no bug triaging before the initial development concludes and reporting issue for incomplete, ongoing work-in-progress is mostly useless.
- Please DO join us on IRC for real time discussions about Ardour. You can get there directly from within the program via the Help->Chat menu option.
- Please DO submit patches for issues after discussing them on IRC.
