Ardour Free Demo Download

The free demo version of Ardour does not support saving plugin settings, or using presets for plugins. Any adjustments you make to plugin parameters will be lost when you quit the program.

If you prefer a version without this limitation, please return to the previous page and choose to make a financial contribution to the project.

The conundrum: you want a free demo of something that many people have worked long and hard to create. We want you to try Ardour, but we don't really want to give away our work for nothing.

Lets just remind ourselves of how different Ardour is:

  • you can pay as little as US$1 for a fully functional version of the program
  • it comes with no copy protection
  • there is no license management
  • it has a big, warm heart
  • no cute animals were harmed during its development

So, lets just check again:
