Hi there,

i'm new to Ardour and relatively new to Linux at all.

I've installed Ardour 4 and configured it well to run with my RME Fireface 800.

I mean: when i update to Ardour 5, do i have to make all the driver settings (JACK / FFADO driver) a new or are they overtaken automatically?

Whats the easiest way to update to Ardour 5? Is it possible via Terminal?

Best regards

Daniel

Ardour is completely seperate from the audio hardware/interface.

Best way to update is to download Ardour5 from here and run the install script. You technically can have both side by side but frankly compared to A4, you should be running A5 as the bugfixes are tremendous.
