@paul you said ardour needs more educational content, like videos and also more people showing advanced functionalities. What are those advanced functionalities you’re thinking about?
June 8, 2020, 10:16am
Indeed, it could be nice to know ! Maybe having a to-do list could help a videomaking community to grow around ardour.

There is one in one of the threads around here I can dig up where I asked what people would like videos on.
If it grows enough I may make it it’s own topic so people can suggest.

Thanks for conducting the interview and typing it out!
I took the liberty of updating the post and directly linking the 2nd part at the top of this thread.

What about UNFA? He has done some Ardour How To videos…

Yes he has, and if you search around here you may find some information on them as well. I will leave it to him to discuss his plans on that.

@paul, it is always a pleasure to listen to you. Honestly, I think you are really good at explaining complicated things in a way that one can understand them. Thanks a lot! And big thanks to @prokoudine.
That being said, your section about plugins (LV2) seems to have left out the elephant in the room: VST3. Would you mind telling what you think about it, technically as well as concerning licensing and other aspects?
