I don’t know if this is allowed, but i have two, vaguely related problems that i would like to deal with and i am just going to post them in this one post so I’m not cluttering up the forums.
First problem: Whenever i try adding a new plugin i will go through all the motions of putting it in a designated spot that i have specified in the plug in directory, scanning for the plugin and all that fun stuff. But they are almost never picked up by the program with the exception of “Dragonfly reverb”. I have sort of been putting this off for a while, but i would really like to start adding some virtual instruments. I am having this problem both on Windows and on linux.
Second problem: In most programs with piano roll when you place down and move a note the program will play it back to you so you can easily get things done. I cannot seem to get ardour to do this. I’ve tried just using the piano on the left of the screen to figure out where i want to put a note and THEN putting it down, but its painfully inefficient. I do know you can do this in ardour because i’ve seen people doing this in videos, specificity alot of Unfa stuff. What can i do to turn this feature on?
