Could Ardour be used as an OS for a Mackie D8B?
I've been using Ardour a a few years now, and really love it.
As a Mackie D8B user, I was wondering if Ardour could be used/customised to actually control the Mackie D8B instead of the proprietry Mackie OS?
The D8B is an amazing mixing desk and has a huge user base, but is now sadly unsupported. It runs from a dedicated Pentium based box which controls all the DSP and plugins on the hardware mixer.
There is a huge interest in a new OS for the D8B and was just wondering if this is at all feasible.
