There is no way in hell I'm going near the utterly fundamentally
retarded mess of shit and fail that is Ardour 3.
It's a DAW. It shouldn't have *any* MIDI beyond control automation and
some idea of sync. Leave that to a sequencer.
Of course, there are no *usable* PC-based sequencers, so after gathering
dust for some ten years my 1/4" tape machine and Alesis MMT-8 are having
all the fun, and the PC just sits with pidgin, evolution and an ssh
session to my IRC client.
Linux audio is nowhere. There isn't a usable sample editor, there are a
couple of brave attempts at sequencers that lack pretty fundamental
features, and we have one DAW that seems to be going down the "do
everything, even if badly" route.
It's 2011. I've been at this for a decade. It's just as bad as it was
when I started trying to use PCs for music. I give up.
