Multichannel Digital Audio Workstation
Ardour is a multichannel hard disk recorder (HDR) and digital audio
workstation (DAW). It is capable of simultaneous recording 24 or more
channels of 32 bit audio at 48kHz. Ardour is intended to function as a
"professional" HDR system, replacing dedicated hardware solutions such
as the Mackie HDR, the Tascam 2424 and more traditional tape systems
like the Alesis ADAT series. It is also intended to provide the same
or better functionality as software systems such as ProTools,
Samplitude, Logic Audio, Nuendo and Cubase VST (we acknowledge these
and all other names as trademarks of their respective owners). It
supports MIDI Machine Control, and so can be controlled from any MMC
controller, such as the Mackie Digital 8 Bus mixer and many other
modern digital mixers.
This version of ardour has been compiled with VST support, using the
freely distributable VeSTige headers.
