I’m a new user of linux/ardour 2 beta 10 (from south of France). I’m quiete impressed by Ardour. I’m used to Nuendo 3 and PTools LE. My distro is Fedora core 6. The PC is a Asus A7Vc, centrino solo 1,86, 1Go ram.
I’ve a fex bugs in ardour 2, like the programm closing when I delete a insert on the output bus. Only once.
I’ve tested Ardour on 10 tracks with the CPU frequency force to half (798MHz) and 2 plugs on the master out. Jack 44100, buffer 256, 5 periods /buffer.
My suggestion would be to have a possibility to export OMF file exchange format (with soundfiles embeded and not embeded) to be ale to exchange files with other DAW (principaly PTools, the standard in studios).
I was expecting also a MIDI sequencer… But I’ve read it is in development.
I also noticed that when the screen is “full of tracks”, and you have no access to a free space where to right click to had a nex track, you can’t had new track that way, except if you reduce the height of the tracks in order to have a free space…
I’m also very interested into VST compatibility, is it possible to have it on a Fedora 6 system ???
Last thing : this soft is a great job !!!
