ardour crashed last night on changing the gain (it did this quite often) but the first time it appeard the possibility to restore - I pressed the button (I was working half an hour without saving) - and afterwards there was no sound any more. After a while I found, that there was nothing connected in the Track/bus Inspector - I fixed this and continued working.
Today in the morning, I found on listening, that from minute 4:25 to 4:32 I have no sound. Controling the mixer in Track 5 everything is ok - but no sound in the Master
When I move this small part to the side - there is no problem. If I move the whole Track 5 to start at 5:00 min - there is also no problem. As soon as I move the whole session to 5:00 min (I could cut the first 5 minutes away) it is back again
I can not find anything - gain is ok - in the Master track I do not find anything? - no automation …
What can this be? - The problem is, that the CD should go this evening to the post
I am using ardour the first time, because the studio, I could work in, was closed. I use it for creating a radio play.
I am using Ubuntu Stuidio with ardour 2.0.5built from revision 2234
this a curious problem…
Make sure you have checked both gain automations - one is the gain of the region (moves with the region), the other is the gain of the track (doesn’t move with the region).
It should be the “a” button on a track, there select “gain” and you should see the track gain automation. Maybe there’s something strange to find.
Is it a problem to just do a workaround? If you move the whole session (all audio) to minute 5:00 and also set the start and end marker 5 minutes further, it should all be fine. Except if you have track markers (for cd etc.), there I’m not sure if you can move them with all the other stuff (I’m in university on a suse system with preinstalled Ardour 2.1, but I can’t figure out if you can move evenrything of a session forward).
ah - in case you aren’t already there, go to the irc channel at irc.freenode.net (#ardour) and asked there. This is the best chance to get superfast support, and with just a little bit of luck you’ll meet some developers there.
I did it in another way - I exported it, imported to a new session and added there the missing minutes - but still I am interested in solving this strange thing
I have to do some more urgent things, but I will look at it in two days
I found the Problem - it was one gain mark in one region in Track 6 - it was somehow linked / dubbeld to the next one.
log from the file - Perspektive.ardour:
AutomationList id=“20327” default=“1” min_yval=“0” max_yval=“2” max_xval=“1976120” state=“Off” style=“Absolute”
70296 1…here starts the gain information
1.97612e+06 0.214453…this here is the problem
I moved the last gain mark of the region in the editor - after this everything was ok - here is the log
I moved the second last gain mark of the region in the editor - here nothing changed - one more time the log
In the editor you see nothing and the strange thing is the output - there are two big red lines in the bottom, when I loaded the exported file again into ardour - see how it looks: www.kult-ex.org/ardour-crash.html
So take care if you have jumping fadors after changing the gain and the CPU is on 100% and the only thing you can do is shut down the computer
