Hey everyone, I was wondering if a new release with updated software is coming up... And if it's not, please, update Ardour package! Version 2.0.3 has really a lot of bugs that have been spotted (in addiction with new features) in version 2.1. Thanks a lot and keep up the great work!

And...

I was forgetting about that, a new Jack version (0.109) has been released, bringing some new features and a lot of fixes. It would be really nice to see that in testing too.

Yes!

VST support always needs to

VST support always needs to be compiled by the user. If you need VST support, the best way you can do that is just by compiling the source package with scons VST=1, you can find further informations on Ardour's compiling page, that also points you to download Steinberg SDK. I don't know if there is a source package on apt, but I think using Ardour's official tarball would be the same.

VST Support?

Does this version of Ardour have Windows VST Support, or does it need to be recompiled? If this does support VSTs, how are they enabled, or what folder do they need to be into be automatically recognized? (or can that folder be changed?) If it does not, is the source in the repositories for *sort-of* automatic re-building from source with apt? I'd be willing to write a How-to if this needs to be done Victor

No problem, I'm always ready

No problem, I'm always ready to test ^.^ What could bother free and other guys is the adoption of the new Rubber Band Library, don't know if it has to be packaged or it has already been.

Whoa, not even the time to upgrade to Ardour 2.1 that Ardour 2.2 is already wild. Any chances to see it in testing/64studio 2.1?

Ardour 2.2 !

I'm sure Free is on it as we speak... It'll probably only make it to 64studio testing though, it being out only a day - no time for stability testing.

Upgrade to Ardour 2.1

Thanks for the pointer Quentin, got excited for a minute. I enabled the testing repo, reloaded in synaptic, tried to upgrade ardour from 2.03-2 to 2.1. But, upgrade wanted to remove gnome-core and metacity. Is that normal or do i have to totally upgrade from 64studio stable to testing. If so, any known consequences. All i see so far is that when i clicked 'Mark All Upgrades'. That wanted to removve gimp, cupsys-driver-gimpprint, scribus-ng, gs-common, etc... TIA jawara

That's what I call fast!

That's what I call fast! Anyway in the meantime I've installed 32-bit version where Ardour 2.1 compiles from source, on 64 bit it complained about a missing reference to __stack_chk_fail... oh, anyway, I think I'll wait for 64Studio 2.1 to get back to 64 bit. @Quentin: yes, I grabbed it from the testing repo some time ago too, but now I use my laptop as my studio... ;) Cheers everyone

Testing is back!

Daniel dropped me a mail and I checked - The testing repository is back in action!! If you don't have it yet - Get your Ardour 2.1 Today! It has a lot of crash fixes, and should make your experience much more positive. It also looks like Ardour is gearing up for the 2.2 release, and we well be the first to test it after the release, if I take the speed in which the previous update reached us (originally that is) Will keep you posted. Cheers

Adrour or Jackd

I can't wait and i do hope that ardour 2.1 is more reliable, gives me more confidence in it as a DAW. I'm not sure if this issue is related to ardour 2.0.3, jackd 0.103.0 or what, but ardour keeps crashing with an error about it being 'zombied by jackd' and not 'being fast enough'. I usually have to quit ardour without saving, and also restart jackd to not get any fuzzing/distortion sound. - This seems to happen with certain sounds (electronic snare or bass drums) up-predictably while using a high pass filter and or Eq. - Due to this happening i only use H/LPF, No EQ. - It also happens when i solo tracks, so i settle for just muting tracks. This makes me nervous so i'm constantly always saving, because i never know when it's going to crash, and i usually can't save anything. I played around with the latency, but it only works with frames/period 1024 and periods/buffer 3. I also hoe ardour 2.1 doesn't have the issue of when you split a track, sometimes the the crossfades don't adjust, so you get loud pop/click type sound at the split point. My system has dual 2.0 ghz xeon processors and 2gb of ram, with sata hard disk for recording and playback, so it's not like i'm lacking resources. Beyond these issues it is a wonderful application and i do enjoy learning and using it. Any one experiencing this. jawara

Ardour 2.1 is due in 64studio 2.1 (in hopefully 4 weeks) It was included in 64studio testing, and I have installed it from there - works well! Not there any more though...
