The Ardour project has announced the release of Ardour 4.0, the latest version of the music production software that brings many technical improvements, as well as new features and over a thousand bug fixes.

Ardour 4

Ardour is an open source, collaborative effort of a worldwide team including musicians, programmers, and professional recording engineers. Development is transparent — anyone can watch our work as it happens. Like a good piece of vintage hardware, you can open the box and look inside. Of course, you don’t have to … but one day the fact that anybody can will be useful.

New in Ardour 4.0

  • Better cross platform support. Ardour now runs on GNU/Linux, OS X and for the first time, Windows.
  • JACK is no longer required, making it easier than ever for new users to get Ardour up and running (though JACK is still usable with Ardour).
  • The user interface has seen a thorough overhaul, leading to a more modern and polished experience.
  • Many other additions and changes.

Ardour 4.0 for Mac and Linux is now available to download for subscribers.
