Just subscribed and downloaded Ardour.
Unfortunately didn’t get it to work. In audio/midi setup no matter what I choose I get ‘Session initialization failed’ error. I have Tascam us428 as my audio interface. For Driver I choose ASIO, Input Device ASIO us428 24bits and Output Device same. Then I click start but a failure message pops up. I tried ASIO4all as input device as well, changed driver to WASAPI but all in vain. Please help me.
What was the issue? What was the solution?
Issue I have mentioned that despite selecting the correct input/output of audio interface, I was getting session initialization failure error. Figured out that session should not be in any folder which requires administrator permission. Ardour makes default session folder in a non-permitted folder so you have to create session in some other part like my documents where permission is not required.
BTW Paul, I find Ardour to be one of the best looking DAWs with decent functions. I like the sleek minimalist approach and been keeping an eye on the progress since version 3. I really wanted it earlier when I saw Mixbus but found out it does not support multi timbrel outputs like in Kontakt which I exclusively work with. I really wish, hope and pray that it grows further specially for windows users to capture a vast market. My background is more than 10 years of usage of Cubase to Studio One to Reaper to plus minus Ardour now. I also hope whenever time/money/resources allow it, you guys implement more in depth midi functions. Thank you and wish you best.
