What does 6.0 look like

For those who have access to the betas for version 6.0, what is it like

It looks just the same. The main ongoing work is all under the hood: large conceptual changes how time is represented (musical time, midi notes & looping) and signal flow (allow cue monitoring, latency compensation). “What is it like?” still mostly broken at this point in time.

Yes one thing to clarify, I don’t think it is even in ‘beta’ status at this point, it is still very much in development/pre-alpha iirc.


It is absolutely not even beta, and likely will not be so for several months.

Will version 6 be a major overhaul of ardour or just tweeks and features. Any chance of the layout and icons getting enhanced or upgraded.

Chances are that the GUI (look & feel) will not change at all for 6.0 (perhaps later in the 6.x cycle). 6.0 is predominantly a major overhaul of the backend to fix some long standing bugs and implement some long standing missing features…

Cool can’t wait to see what happens
