On my windows Ardour, the midi files were stored with a “recorder:” prefix. I can’t copy the files to another machine, or even do a “save as” on the same machine without the files being lost and not openable in the new session with the “save as” version.
Is there a way to fix this manually somewhere in the project?
This is a little maddening as Ardour seems to be able to find these midi files, but windows cannot.
The place where the files should be stored has a single zero length “recorder” file:
