hi,
i've been using a mac (pb g4/tiger) to work with ardour. recently i bought also a linux box (amd64 dual core/ubuntu studio) and i'm facing following problem: all my sessions i copied from pb to the linux machine (via firewire using pb's target mode) display with the waveforms totally messed up - they look like sorta heavilly clipped or quantized, while sound is ok. i tried to delete the "peaks" folder, expecting new peaks to be built after reopening the session, which doesn't happen either. have no idea what to do: is it a bug, or am i missing something totally obvious?
any help greatly appreciated!
thanks

Create an empty "peaks" folder and Ardour will recreate the peaks inside. For some reason it doesn't work if the peaks folder is missing
