Is there a means of removing pluggins without actually opening the project? I was working on a project that will no longer open because ardour crashes while trying to open it. SO I am trying to find away to salvage my work. Any ideas?
You can edit the .ardour file in a text editor and remove the plugin XML nodes. Make sure you make a backup first though.
Thanks for the info, I began by trying to make the plugins inactive but this still sends jack pilot up to 50 or so, so I may end up removing them all together. I appreciate the info and any other ideas that anyone has. The main problem being that I can't open the session as it crashes ardour :(
