Title: How I record and Callin' B.S. Intro:


Software Releases:

Ardour 2.8.3
  • Ardour can now open un-writable sessions without complaining. This includes sessions on read-only media and those for which write access is not :granted to the user.
  • support FLAC & Ogg/Vorbis import and export (via system libsndfile)
  • provide jdelay-based hardware/port insert latency measurement (note: this is not automatic, but is initiated by the user in the insert GUI)
  • Enable very basic plugin boolean automation via Write and Read. no Touch. graphical editing is not allowed. a little crude but better than none at all
  • OSC API now supports add locate command (/ardour/locate i= i=)

Listener Feedback:

Hey Dan and crew,
Just recently discovered this podcast and listened through episode 20 so far. This is a great resource! I'm comlpetely new to the world of linux and digital audio in general, been plugging along about a year and steadily learning as I go (lots of trial and error). I'm still struggling to get everything running smoothly but this podcast is a huge encouragement. It's just good to here people discussing this stuff. I appreciate the mix of linux-centric info and general recording techniques. Just wanted to say thanks for all the work you guys put in!

Podcast Out!
