It features unlimited audio tracks and buses, non-destructive, non-linear editing with unlimited undo, and anything-to-anywhere signal routing. It assumes you already have Ardour up and running on your computer. Please note that this tutorial does not yet cover any MIDI functionality. The tutorial was originally written for Ardour 2.

Grab yourself a nice audio interface. Plug in a microphone or a keyboard. Add a track. Press record. Got it. Cut, move, stretch, copy, paste, delete, align, trim, crossfade, rename, snapshot, zoom, transpose, quantize, swing, drag, drop. Mute, solo, fader, automate, EQ, dynamics, insert, send, pre-fader, post-fader, sync, monitor, isolate.
Floating point fidelity, the most flexible mixer architecture in the industry, hundreds of plugins, and external control surfaces. Ardour's core user group: people who want to record, edit, mix and master audio and MIDI projects. When you need complete control over your tools, when the limitations of other designs get in the way, when you plan to spend hours or days working on a session, Ardour is there to make things work the way you want them to. Being the best tool to record talented performers on actual instruments has always been a top priority for Ardour.
Rather than being focused on electronic and pop music idioms, Ardour steps out of the way to encourage the creative process to remain where it always has been: a musician playing a carefully designed and well built instrument. Sample accurate sync and shared transport control with video playback tools allows Ardour to provide a fast and natural environment for creating and editing soundtracks for film and video projects.
Arrange audio and MIDI using the same tools and same workflow. Use external hardware synthesizers or software instruments as sound sources. Any number of tracks and busses. Non-linear editing. Non-destructive and destructive! Any bit depth, any sample rate. Dozens of file formats.
FX plugins. Software instruments. MIDI processors. Automate any parameters. Physically manipulate them via control surfaces. Distribute processing across as many or as few cores as you want. Use OSC to drive almost any operation in Ardour. Complex signal flows are simple and elegant. Use sends, inserts and returns freely. Connections can be one-to-many, many-to-one or many-to-many.
Tap signal flows at any point. If you can't connect in the way you want with Ardour, it probably can't be done. Import a single video and optionally extract the soundtrack from it. Display a frame-by-frame thumbnail timeline of the video. Use a Video-monitor window, or full-screen display, of the imported video in sync with any of the available ardour timecode sources.
Lock audio-regions to the video: Move audio-regions with the video at video-frame granularity. Ardour is an open source, collaborative effort of a worldwide team including musicians, programmers, and professional recording engineers. Development is transparent — anyone can watch our work as it happens. Like a good piece of vintage hardware, you can open the box and look inside. Of course, you don't have to … but one day the fact that anybody can will be useful.
This openness forces a kind of integrity on the project that is hard to find in proprietary software, and helps us to focus on issues and features that matter to our users rather than stuff that just looks good in advertisements. Record Bring it to the computer. Edit The work to be done. Mix All the buzzwords.
