I’ve been using Ardour for the last couple of years and finally decided to financially support the project since I have gotten so much from the software. Thank you Paul and all others who have contributed to it.
My band is recording our second full length album and I am using Ardour to do my guitar tracking. However, I am running into an issue.
I record my tracks, then I export them as WAV files and transfer the files via a site called www.wetransfer.com to my drummer who arranges all the tracks in Logic. The problem is that my tracks that I send to him are delayed behind the other tracks. I don’t have an exact number, but I would estimate between 15-30ms. When we listen to the mix, you can hear the playback on my tracks are delayed a split second. It is like the tracks don’t line up and mine are the only ones to have that problem.
When I export the files, I do notice that the DSP is maxed out at 100% although I am unsure if this is related to the problem.
We are pulling out our hair over here trying to figure out why my exported tracks are delayed in the playback compared to the other tracks.
If anyone has any ideas, advice or suggestions, I am very open, although I am not great when it comes to working my way around linux.
Here is what I am working with:
No plugins running
firewire device running through FFADO
44100 sample rate
256 port max
2000 msec timeout
showing 11.6ms latency
Unfortunately Jackd is just starting up and immediately shutting down for some reason, but it was working fine with these setting before.
Intel I5 3570k cpu
TI instruments firewire card
Thank you so much for any thoughts and feedback. I am very willing to try any and all ideas, but it would be helpful to consider me a newbie around linux.
Thank you so much!
