Audio Editors

Install latest Ardour – Digital Audio Editor on Linux

Ardour is a fully-featured open source digital audio multi track application, similar to other software like ProTools, Nuendo, Sonar and Logic, and capable of replacing analog or digital tape systems. Ardour allows to you to record, edit and mix your audio on Linux, OS X and Windows.

Ardour Features

  • 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
  • Ardour is not just a recorder, editor and mixer, but can also be used to master your project all the way to its final form
