Introducing Ardour3

Sound System

Article from Issue 151/2013

The latest version of Ardour – a full-featured digital audio workstation – offers some major new developments. We take a closer look.

On March 10, 2013, developer Paul Davis announced the official public release of Ardour 3.0, better known simply as Ardour3. Version 3.0 introduces significant new features and is considered a major milestone, not only in its own project track but throughout the greater world of Linux audio development.

You can view the lengthy list of Ardour’s features on its website, but instead of reiterating that catalog here, I’ll present my use of Ardour3 in a set of test projects. You won’t see everything Ardour offers, but you will get a look at some of its most notable new features and operations in action.
