Ardour sponsored by google, windows port, midi tracks etc.

Quote:
Ardour was granted support for 3 projects by Google's Summer of Code 2006 program. This summer will hopefully see the start of MIDI sequencing support, a Windows port and work on a couple of advanced but very useful capabilities.
Found on ardour.org

This piece of software is really going somewhere.

I agree this is genuine 4th generation DAW software.

Really getting excited about this.

Interesting to see when the big boys start backing it.

interesting how this is for mainly Apple as of now, but in the line, "If you've been looking for a tool similar to ProTools....", they didn't mention Logic. hmmm.

I have the latest version of Ardour running on OSX right now. The GUI is fairly crude for the time, but it has been very stable. I think that Ardour definitely has a future. It's not going to make be give up Logic anytime soon, but it may in the future.

I only see the brief blurb. What is so revolutionary about this?

Maybe not revolutionary. Still great with a fully featured DAW that is free, available for OSX, Linux and Windows and hopefully with a big community in the future.

The revolutionary thing about Ardour

The revolutionary part of Ardour is not the features ( those are basically the same as every other workstation ... tracks, busses, plugins )

The "revolution" is the way that Ardour is developed. Anybody can add features or fix bugs, just like the old days when studio engineers could fire up a soldering iron to "hot-rod" a piece of gear.

If a manufacturer uses this standard platform to create a fine-tuned product with full technical support, you get the best of both worlds. As an example, Harrison is using Ardour in a new stem recorder for post-production studios. To my knowledge, this is the first commercially available version of Ardour. You can learn more about how we used Ardour at http://www.motherofalldubbers.com

I have been following Ardour for quite some time now but have yet to use it. I am a linux noob and have tried a couple of times but with no luck but am about to try again tomorrow with Fedora Core 5. A good place to start is http://ccrma.stanford.edu/planetccrma/software/
Also for anyone who is interested I would recommend signing up to the planet ccrma and Ardour mailing lists. There is a ton of info that is exchanged on those lists, most of which is way over my head but I try to take in what I can. Wish me luck with my latest attempt
