Getting ardour working.... period.
Ok call me a complete newbie to this. i was using musix version of linux to run ardour 2.0 and it worked perfectly, jack made all connections, i hit play and it played :). Problem was it crashed often. not good when you almost done your masterpiece and lose everything cause the system crashes. i then discovered ubuntu media studio :) looks awesome. problem is how do i get ardour to play something? jack seems to make the relevant connections but no matter what i do it plays back blank. Please assist me someone, or link me to a guide step by step. thanks
