Ardour crash and broken work
On the begining of this post i could tell You: my English can be not so good.
Ok. Lets write....
I working on ardour 2.8.
Yesterday i finished records of drums, piano and bass for my new song. I make dub-style effects on drums and I record drums with fx's to new track, because my computer is not so fast, and i need to free some Memory/CPU resources.
Next, for 2 hours I worked on bass-guitar line. Bass was recorder not in time, so I split it into small pieces and move this pieces to the rhythm of drums. This is very tiring work, but effect are great. Additionaly, i add low pass filter with automation of cutoff frequency. All sounds great.
Then.... Ardour crashes.... After 10 minuters of not responding Ardour window i killed them :/ and re-open ardour. My bass-guitar pieces are #$%^&* broken. Each piece have the same fade to next piece, and some pieces cover other pieces :( All work is broken.
My automation are broken too. I wrote lines like U letter, but now there are like V letter. All liquid changes of filter param, are now jumping changes.
My project is happy reaggae song, but when I get angry because of this crash and broken work, my reggae mood are lost :/
There is point when i think about leave ardour, and making music on linux :( When i record or make simple things all is ok. But when my project has many regions on several tracks with automation, then ardour makes very bad thing.
When musicans/producers/... using daw, then they want to use it for several hours and don't think: "Please dont crash". We need to think about music, not about computer science. After my yesterday experience i know that ardour currently is unreliable. Before, I think about ardour good. This is truely functional application. But i need this funcionality in small and in big projects.
