Pre-noob here (haven’t downloaded yet). I’m an experienced programmer and Logic Pro user running on OSX.
I need a DAW whose transport can be controlled from an external program. Can someone tell me if the following is possible and relatively straight forward in Ardour with OSC (or whatever)?
I want to use an external program to play short sections of audio in (effectively) random order. Assuming Ardour supports some convenient form of bar position adjustment so I can accurately map measure numbers to an audio track, I’d like to be able to run something like the following pseudo-code:
while more_sections(): start, end = get_next_section_bar_numbers() send_osc_play_command(start, end)
Just to be clear, the sections to be played are not sequential and may be overlapped, e.g.
17-21, 18-19, 3-5, etc.
