How to install Ardor on Ubuntu

Ardour is a multichannel hard disk recorder (HDR) and digital audio workstation (DAW). It can be used to control, record, edit and run complex audio setups. . Ardour supports pro-audio interfaces through the ALSA project, which provides high quality, well designed device drivers and API's for audio I/O under Linux. Any interface supported by ALSA can be used with Ardour. This includes the all-digital 26 channel RME Hammerfall, the Midiman Delta 1010 and many others. . Ardour has support for 24 bit samples using floating point internally, non-linear editing with unlimited undo, a user-configurable mixer, MTC master/slave capabilities, MIDI hardware control surface compatibility. . It supports MIDI Machine Control, and so can be controlled from any MMC controller and many modern digital mixers. . Ardour contains a powerful multitrack audio editor/arranger that is completely non-destructive and capable of all standard non-linear editing operations (insert, replace, delete, move, trim, select, cut/copy/paste). 

Features Ardour 

  • Because Ardour uses JACK, it doesn’t interact directly with audio hardware at all. This means that Ardour will run with any hardware supported by JACK, or even with no audio interface at all
  • In conjunction with its support for a wide range of audio hardware, Ardour offers you sample rate neutral facilities (ie. any sample rate is supported to the extent of your hardware’s capabilities)
  • Providing seamless operation with any supported hardware, Ardour’s 32 bit floating point mixer offers endless headroom and guaranteed bit-for-bit fidelity for 24 bit samples
  • At the present, most DAWs are converging on a fairly common set of editing features, and Ardour is no different in this respect
  • Ardour relies on plugins to enable many features from FX processing to dynamics control. At this time, Ardour supports the LADSPA plugin API, developed by the Linux Audio Developers community
  • Unlike every other DAW available, Ardour is open source. This means that anyone can read the “source code” to the program to find out exactly how, when and why it does certain things
