Would be nice if SAE also helps with the documentation :)
Together with the ardour community we could improve the manual and keep it up-to-date.

Moreover, they have to learn their students to work with a DAW and Ardour isn't it? Would be cool if there're willing to share their tutorials with us!

I think good documentation and tutorials will improve the position of Ardour in the world of the DAWs, or better to improve Ardours' usability to the users, 'us'..

(yes I've right to speak here, after I made a nice dutch manual/tutorial ;) )

err, excuse me. maybe its just too early in the morning, so i might be a bit rude.

SAE charges students thousands of dollars a year to learn how to use a DAW (and a mixing console, and mic-preamps and video editors and ....). This is the bedrock of their business and is how they can afford to sponsor ardour - their income isn't related to sales of software (or audio hardware, for that matter).

and now you're suggesting that they just start providing their educational materials to everyone on the net, for free? SAE's business model is: if you want to know how to be an audio engineer, pay us and we will teach you. i can't tell you if the education provided by SAE is a good one, or value for money - i don't know. i do know, however, that suggesting that they just abandon this and try to teach everyone for free, even just a bit, is a little crazy (and ultimately would remove the only source of income at present that makes it possible for me to work on ardour).

Ok ok calm down it was just a suggestion for 'working together'...

And I don't say I don't want to pay for a good book/tutorial ...(!)

AFAIK there are thousands of different studies and most of the study books they use, you can buy in your local bookstore or on the internet...

So making a book available (for free or not) is not the same as following or giving lessons. Why do you think all those students go to universities if all those books they use are in stores to? Right, they need a teacher (and a degree)...

fair enough. it was too early in the morning for me, and i'm a little crabby after discovering bugs that should have been fixed before 2.7 was "let out".

a book is a good idea...
i'd be willing to buy a copy...
the only problem with that would be that it would slowly go out of date as later versions of Ardour are released with new features...
