The Ardour professional digital workstation for working with audio and MIDI was updated to version 5.0.
Ardour 5.0 is now available for Linux, OS X and Windows. This is a major release focused on substantial changes to the GUI and major new features related to mixing, plugin use, tempo maps, scripting and more. As usual, there are also hundreds of bug fixes. Ardour 5.0 can be parallel-installed with older versions of the program, and does not use the same preference files. It will load sessions from Ardour 2, 3 and 4, though with some potential minor changes.
This is the first version of Ardour with official Windows support. Several years of products based on Ardour and our own nightly builds for Windows have made us confident that Ardour runs just as well on Windows as other platforms.
Ardour 5.0 is now available to subscribers or for a single donation.
