I know templates I create go in ~/.config/ardour5/templates.
But where are the templates that get installed with Ardour?
Also, one template mentions it uses lua script to accomplish “stuff”. How does the template know to run the script and where is it?
Details of why I ask:
The laptop I’m configuring will be used in a multi-user studio.
It will have a login for each user.
I’m thinking of having templates for common studio uses.
I’d like to have them common to all users.
(In addition, I would like to figure out how to use lua scripts to automate some things at Ardour start. Like disconnecting some “un-needed connects during recording” that get connected by default.)
Back looking at this again…I haven’t quite digested the session_template_record.lua script as yet.
Currently on my system, as far as I can tell, there are no template files.
But, when I choose new session I get a list containing Empty Template, Advanced Session, Recording Session, and Live Band.
Since the template directories are empty, I assume the Advanced, Recording, and Live Band come from the .lua files in /usr/share/ardour5/scripts/ where they are named as type: SessionInit or EditorAction?
Where does Empty Template come from?
I got into this because I was looking at where/how to avoid the click track (and possible the monitor) from getting auto routed…maybe it’s obvious, but, I’ve been known to look right at the obvious and miss it.
