Pan Controls and Plugins Missing from Track

Ardour 2.8.11
Ubuntu 11.04
Linux Kernel 2.6.39

I open a project and the pan controls are missing from some tracks and the plug-ins are also missing. If I add a plug-in back to the track, the pan control shows up again. Take the plug-in off, the pan control is missing again.

If I open the Ardour project XML in a text editor, many of the Route nodes are missing on these tracks compared to tracks that were not “corrupted”.

My plug-in settings are missing from the tracks and same in the project backup.

The client was in the room and it was embarrassing.


there seems to be an issue with ubuntu 11.04 and ardour. there are other posts with problems, not exactly yours but maybe related: for example

if you use ardour professionally, i would suggest you try a audio-linux distro instead of stock-ubuntu

often suggested here is avlinux. there’s a new release “right now”:

hope this helps!
