Fri Aug 13 22:24:17 UTC 2021 - Marcus Rueckert <>

- Update to version 6.9.0
  - Plugin Manager
    - Find it under the Window top-level menu
    - The Plugin Manager provides a complete list of plugins that
      were found on your system, and data about each plugin's scan
    - New standalone scanner applications for VST and AU plugins
      will scan your whole plugin collection without danger of
      crashing Ardour.
    - The new scanner dialog allows you to skip individual plugins
      without canceling the whole scan process. Or set the scanner
      to auto-timeout while you take a break, and come back later
      to re-scan those individual plugins that wanted some user
    - Sort and filter your plugins by name, brand, tags, or format.
    - Tell Ardour to Ignore troublesome plugins so we won't try to
      load them at all.
    - Ardour loads AU, VST2, VST3, and LV2 format plugins. Choose
      the format that works best for each plugin, and hide the ones
      you don't use (but might be used in some existing sessions).
  - Improvements
    - Playlist Management Substantial changes to playlist
      management include:
      - Global playlist actions like "New Playlist for rec-armed
        tracks" allow you to record a new take on all tracks that
        are record-armed, whether they are in a Group or not.
        You'll find these actions in the Track menu.
      - "Copy Playlist for All Tracks" will store the timeline
        state of your arrangement, edits and automation. You can
        later switch between them while leaving your static mixer
        and plugin settings intact.
      - Select a track and click "?" keyboard shortcut to open the
        Playlist Selector dialog. Click any playlist to listen to
        the alternative takes of that track, OR...
      - ...change the scope to "ALL Tracks" and you can switch all
        tracks that have a matching playlist to your selection: if
        you recorded a take of the drums and bass together, you can
        switch the drum and bass playlists together even if they
        aren't in a Group.
      - Create the perfect vocal or guitar comp: Create a new empty
        playlist and call it 'comp'. Then use the selector to
        switch between different takes and move the best take to
        your comp playlist. You can even have more than one comp
        playlist to compare with each other. And like the other
        playlist functions, you can edit multitracks with ease: by
        group, rec-armed, or ALL tracks.
    - Varispeed Changes
      - The GUI for the "shuttle control" has been modified to
        present a simpler, easier to understand interface.
      - Click on the "VS" button to enable/disable varispeed as
        well adjusting the varispeed settings. .
      - The VS button will blink when varispeed is enabled.
      - Varispeed settings are persistent, so you can revert to
        regular playback, then later re-enable varispeed to get
    - New GUI control allows blocking MIDI patch changes during
      session loading.
    - Preference items to enable/disable VST2 and/or VST3 support.
    - Add explicit actions for changing between stacked and
      overlaid region views, making this bindable (to a computer
      keyboard or MIDI).
    - LV2 plugins: add support for plugins with multiple Atom ports
      (e.g. Sfizz, the SFZ player)
    - Slip-contents editing now more easily accessible using
      Ctrl-Shift-drag (Cmd-Shift-drag on macOS) anywhere in a
      region. It is no longer necessary to place the mouse cursor
      near the edges of the region.
    - Fix drawing the red recording rectangle to honor latency
      compensation (region no longer visibly jump at rec-stop).
  - Bug Fixes
    - Splash screen management has been changed. On Linux, this may
      conflict with your window manager's behavior - if so, go to
      Edit > Preferences > Appearance > Quirks and try the
      "Show/Hide" setting.
    - Support for a Wine/windows build to run Windows VST plugins
      "natively" on Linux has been removed. has never
      distributed these builds. There are plugin wrappers/bridges
      such as Yabridge that do a better job of making this
    - Muted MIDI regions are now actually muted.
    - MIDI capture duration is correctly computed when loop
    - MIDI capture alignment is now correctly implemented.
    - Loop recording working again after an unnoticed breakage.
    - Various fixes for recently added region markers during
    - The "Escape" key now behaves identically while in internal
      editing modes as when in other mouse modes.
    - Prevent accidental addition of multiple markers at the same
    - In the Recorder tab, do not show input meters for
      control-only ports Faderport, Mackie, etc.
    - During a slip-contents drag, regions are now transparent so
      that you can align transients.
    - Fix Apple Coreaudio Source (used for MP3 import on macOS) --
      was broken since 6.0
  - Control Surfaces
    - US2400: Fix direction of pan knob LEDs.
    - Mackie Control
      - Change combined meter to use a peak meter with falloff.
      - Reset surfaces once connected.
      - Correctly handle the Monitor section being removed.
      - Update the meters even when the transport is stopped.
      - Move meter deflection calc to a function.
      - Improved support for iCON QCon Pro X.
      - When reconnecting ports, don't give up on first failure.
      - Don't call port write directly since it bypasses active
      - Improve debug trace output by skipping meter write output.
      - Hold the surfaces lock while resetting the master_surface.
      - Don't crash when the master is on the right.
      - Use selected device's info when building the Keys dialog.

      - Use space as replacement for invalid characters on timecode
      - Fix logic in timecode display update.

Tue Jul  6 23:01:03 UTC 2021 - Marcus Rueckert <>

- Update to version 6.8.0.
  - New Features
    - Playlist Operations (sponsored by Harrison Consoles) A new
      menu Track > Playlist, provides actions to create new
      playlists (or a copied playlist) for (all | rec-armed |
      selected) tracks.

      Playlist naming and grouping behavior has changed:

      - When creating a new playlist, the user is always prompted
        for a playlist name (default value is Take.N where N
        auto-increments). In the past, some playlist actions didn't
        prompt for a name while others did, resulting in
        inconsistent naming.
      - When a playlist is created, ardour assigns it a group-id
        (timestamp) which can later be used to recognize playlists
        that were created as part of the same action. In the past,
        ardour tried to match grouped playlists via name but this
        relationship was unclear to the user.
      - A playlist group-id is also implicitly created when you
        first record to an empty playlist. This solves the problem
        in the past where user-created playlists would select
        together as a group, but the initial track playlist had no
        group relationship and therefore could not follow the group
      - The dialog accessed via the "P" button in the track header
        (editor view) has been adjusted: some esoteric playlist
        functions (copy from other track, share from other track,
        and steal from other track) are now hidden under an
        "Advanced" submenu. You can now also show more than one
        track's "Select Playlist" dialog simultaneously, the dialog
        is persistent rather than closing when you make a
        selection: this makes it easier to audition playlists
        ("takes") and copy from one to another

    - Performance Meters: Window > Performance Meters now provides
      low level metering of the "DSP" taking place inside Ardour.
      Notice that the numbers display in the window are worst case
      which may not match the behavior of some other measurement
      tools (e.g. the main "DSP meter" in the upper right of the
      main window) or other DAWs. Average values (along with std.
      deviation values) can be seen by mousing-over any given
      meter. Thanks to Robbert van der Helm for his participation
      in the development process for these meters.
    - Add support for requesting specific CPU DMA latency values
      (can improve DSP performance on some systems, and degrade it
      or have no impact on other systems). If you don't understand
      what this does, then it's probably best to leave it alone.
    - Add extend-selection (to end of region) and invert-selection
      operations for MIDI editing
    - New track edit operation "remove gaps", with adjustable
      threshold and "leave" parameters
    - Add M4A import support
    - MIDI Tracer windows now come with their own port for
      arbitrary tracing of MIDI data
  - Improvements
    - Add bypass control to ACE-Fluidsynth
    - Add a MIDNAM file for Yamaha P-121/125 keyboards
    - Do not trigger ruler display when changing between BBT
      subdivisions for the grid
    - Crash fixes and speed improvements to ProTools session import
    - Allow renaming of region/source cue markers
    - Allow drag of region/source cue markers
    - Alternative region/source cue marker promotion to CD markers
    - Stop using named semaphores on system wide to avoid
      collisions with other software
    - Ignore xruns when when switching to/from non-realtime export
    - Remove duplicates in CoreAudio device list
    - Refactoring of input port monitoring (significantly reduces
      DSP load caused by new recorder tab)
    - Improvements to setting real-time priority for critical
    - Better event loop integration for websocket support
    - Automation control points no longer obey "lock edit" mode,
      which should only lock regions and notes
    - Slip-contents drag made more accessible
    - Some improvements to behavior of brush dragging
    - Override global Ubuntu menu behavior
    - Improvements to splash window visibility management during
  - Bug Fixes
    - Fix memory leak in clock displays (up to 50MB/hour when
    - Fix undo/redo of ripple edits

    - Fix crash when removing a plugin with a control mapped using
      MIDI learn or a binding map
    - Fix crash when using external position sync (MTC, LTC etc)
      and switching backends
    - Fix deadlock in long running sessions (2-5 days)

Mon May 31 07:12:54 UTC 2021 -

- Update to version 6.7.0.
  * New Features
    * Dedicated “Recorder” tab/window
      - Provides a compact view of your track’s record & monitor status plus a simplified timeline that keeps everything in view at once.
      - Allows you to rename your device’s hardware inputs to match your studio connections: “Vocal Mic”, “Guitar Mic”, “Bass DI” (these names will be retained across sessions).
      - Every hardware input has a high-precision meter with peak-hold, a scrolling waveform history so you can recognize your source signals, and a PFL solo button to listen to that signal (requires the Monitor section to be engaged).
      - Vision and support for this work came from Harrison Consoles.
    * New "Streaming" preset option for export (defines correct defaults for YouTube, Apple Music, SoundCloud and Amazon Music streaming services, particularly loudness levels).

    * Recover waveform-gradient-depth slider for ardour, and timeline-item-gradient-depth for mixbus.
    * Include a loudness plot on export-report.
    * Tweak export-report to fit on smaller screens (#8698).
    * Set default master-bus meter-point to output.
    * Overhaul export loudness normalization (include limiter).
    * Disambiguate export formats with same loudness but different true-peak.
    * Improve GUI behavior of the tempo dialog by preselecting the start BPM text field.
    * Use -90dB as default threshold for silence trim during export, rather than -inf dB.
    * Primary-w now closes Preferences window (like any other dialog/window).
    * Inform user if there have been dropouts during realtime export.
    * macOS: improve realtime thread scheduling.
    * Rewind/ffwd controls can now optionally act more like a shuttle (incremental) speed control (see Edit > Preferences > Transport).
    * Reduce default maximum transport speed to 2.0 to avoid DSP overload.
    * Add new config parameter for auto-return after rewind/ffwd (set to false by default).
    * Significant optimizations to speed of many operations affecting multiple regions.

            Allow use of broken apps such as TouchOSC and Lemur with Ardour's OSC support
            (These apps/devices violate the OSC specification by requiring all messages to include at least one argument. The new /ardour/pushbutton/.. OSC "namespace" can be used to provide OSC addresses for messages that always one floating point argument; messages to such addresses are ignored unless the argument is 1.0)
            Add notification of changes in transport speed or record enable status
        Add easy-to-use MIDI port selectors to the Generic MIDI settings dialog

        Improve ipMIDI support on Windows.
        Fix latency compensation for the Windows audio/MIDI I/O backend.
        Attempted fix for issues on Windows when running on machines that use hyper-threading.

      issues with solo when using complex routing between tracks
      and busses.
    - Fixed loop recording (inadvertently broken for several
    - Added support for RF64 and MBWF audio file formats. These are
      both 64 bit file formats, capable of recording impossibly
      large amounts of audio. MBWF is the 64 bit version of
      Broadcast WAV. .
    - When using either format, if recorded files are smaller than
      the RIFF (WAV) size limit, convert the header to RIFF so as
      to be compatible with normal WAV-handling software.
  - General Changes
    - "Save As" will refuse to write to an existing folder/directory.

      from causing session breakage. This also applies to attempts
      to name tracks or busses with similar names.
    - Ensure that correct audio is heard when region layering is
    - Use a single consistent method for computing DSP load on all
      platforms, with all backends.

    - Correctly and consistently initialize track/bus group
    - Fixed crash during session region cleanup.
    - Ensure identical XML in session files if the session does
      not change, thus allowing tracking state changes in a
      revision control system (e.g. git).

    - When editing a clock display, swallow illlegal keys rather
      than passing them onto the main window where they might have
      some unintended effect.
    - Primary-Shift-click on the solo lock button now applies to
      all tracks/busses, consistent with Primary-Shift-click on
      other buttons.

      the background, making it invisible.
    - Correctly set waveform height when switching between stacked
      and overlaid view modes.
    - Make all entries in the track list context menu actually
