Ardour, my new Digital Audio Workstation, well for now :)

Several years ago I tried using Ardour unsuccessfully, but I will tame this beast and make it my go-to DAW for all my future audio experiments.

  1. I hope you find the DAW that works for you. I use Reason formerly ‘Propellerheads Reason’ for music production. I’ve been using it for about 16 years so can highly recommend it.

    1. Hi Dean,

      Thanks so much for visiting my audio blog and commenting. Yes indeed looking for a DAW that has suited my needs has been a bit of a daunting task. I tried Reason several years ago when it was still known as “Propellerheads…” and I don’t remember why, but I dropped it. I’ve dabbled in Cubase, Rosegarden (MIDI only) and several others. Ableton, as I mentioned, is great and allows me to do many of the things I wanted to do, BUT, it seems that I’m not alone with my woes with the audio quality as the Ableton forums are filled with people that have the same problem and it seems to be a Windows issue. I’m currently also experimenting with Ardour, yet another DAW, and although it has a very nice workflow, some great features, but unfortunately it was originally created for the Linux platform, and so has been crashing on me almost consistently since I first installed it. I thought going to Windows 10 and the latest version of Ardour might help, but it hasn’t. Oh well, so I keep going back to Reaper, my DAW of choice these days and I’ll stick to that and see how I can make it work for me. There are a few plugins I’ve discovered lately that can make it do some of the same things as Ableton, mainly the triggering samples, so we’ll see if that works. Stay tuned for more audio on my blog, I’m hoping to record more in the future.
