Sometimes when I open Ardour, 1 or 2, sometimes 3 tracks open completely maxed at 40db. If I close and reopen the session, sometimes that fixes it. Sometimes I have to close and reopen many times and finally it will work. Sometimes if I switch between snapshots back and forth and it will work.
Seems to be random, not always the same tracks on the same session.
Here is a screenshot of what it looks like: https://i.imgur.com/XbfvGHA.png
i have no experience with windows builds of ardour, but from what you’re describing i would suspect some plugin madness rather than ardour itself. does this happen also with plugin-free sessions just with pure audio?
Not sure about plugin free audio, ill have to try that. A reboot seems to work as well, at least temporarily. So, sometimes just close and reopen ardour, sometimes several times, or sometimes a reboot.
I have has the same problem but it always have been a plugin acting up and disabling the plugin and reenabling it again have helped.
