Testing Ardour 2.8
Ok, A2.8 is installed and running. There are no errors on startup, except for the well documented "librdf fatal" warning which is, according to the devs, safe to ignore. Configure, compile and install went without a hitch. I've opened a big Ardour orchestral template, and all seems well so far. Connections are made correctly, no graphic glitches, or perfomance changes, with CPU/dsp usage, and buffer settings changes from 2.7. I'll start hammering it this afternoon, and see if anything else comes up, or falters. So far, so good. Alex. AMD64 X2 5600+ dual core, 4GB ram, and 2 external midi keyboards, as input and control devices. 64Studio Beta 3 V3.0, with ALSA 1.0.19, Jackmp 1.9.1. (Both source installs), and the 'raw' midi-driver, with a2jmidid doing the bridging between alsamidi, and jackmidi. A2.8. test template has 70 tracks, and 40 busses, with sends on the tracks to an instance of Jconv, running the Sala-concerti-cdm, and using the Stereo-A1. conf configuration file.
