Ardour

Open source digital audio workstation Ardour has been updated to version 2.8, a mostly-bugfix version that also comes with a couple of significant features.

I am pleased to announce the release of Ardour 2.8. As has been previously announced, the 2.X series is now in a state of “feature freeze” so that we can try to concentrate on Ardour 3.0, but as a gesture of thanks to the community for the support during February, I wanted to release this mostly-bugfix version that also comes with a couple of significant features. These include much more reliable VST support on Linux, track/bus templates and, with some important qualifications, AudioUnit state and preset handling.

Changes in Ardour v2.8

  • Track/Bus Templates.
  • Distributable VST support.
  • VST preset handling.
  • VST chunk handling.
  • AudioUnit state & preset handling.
  • new playhead-to-{next,previous}-region-boundary variant commands that ignores track selection (on Linux, Windows-LeftArrow or Windows-RightArrow; on OS X, Ctrl-LeftArrow or Ctrl-RightArrow).
  • New, thoroughly edited Spanish translation.
  • New “accurate” crossfade icons.
  • Many fixes, details here.

Ardour is available as an executable for Mac and Linux (source code is available as well).
