This is a disaster, i wanted a daw to be free open source and this is a complete lie, i wanted a free daw to work with and yet another project go to waste, Ardour is should be easy to use more and more i realized i should wait and buy FL Studios 20 instead the saddest thing is the damn nag screen its very annoying to that point i’m going to download a K*y**n and install a daw and here is why please just make it free and open source
here are my 4 Complaints
the nag screen is constant 10 minutes will drive a person to cause them to find a solution to get rid of it (There is no solution to it) and subscribing to buy a copy even though it’s a “free software” to but you pay to get access No wonder people like me are going to places Like Luffi’s Bay to use music and then pay a copy of it later
Abysmal interface (im used to reaper and Magix Music maker) - coming out of Magix after i knew magix sticks adware in their products and finding an alternative to it is completely clueless to someone who does not know completely has to look up old YouTube videos of the tutorial and worse they do not tell you anything but the problem.
Paying to buy a copy of the real upgraded version of Ardour thats on Linux (you know there is a problem with that) - If you’ve a copy of something that is avalible say for instance audacity or VLC they both have downloads for each software but for Ardour no You pay for a “Windows copy” F*** YOU if you don’t have Linux
Making Midi’s is Abysmal - If you use FL Studios,Abelton 10 or Reaper, it’s a drag and drop command and to open the piano roll is just one click and it opens a window. Ardour’s way you have there is no way to insert or create a midi, and plus you have all the command are in the daw instead of a different window and yes it is difficult again because the Damn Nag screen when you to pay for a “Free Software” and when it does comes up it erases the dame midi your trying to write midi. for
I am sick and tired of Software Claiming it’s “Free” (in quote again) but reality it your paying a copy for a limited slim copy no wonder why people are getting your product illegally in protest.
