This isn't completely Ardour related but it follows on from a discussion in the Linux Forum and there seem to be plenty of people on here who might know the answer.
I'm having problems with Reverbs. I've tried several LADSPA plugins as well as jconv and the linuxdsp Stereo Reverb. I have set up a stereo bus in ardour and on that bus, pre-fader, I insert my reverb plugin, (or my insert if I'm using jconv or linuxdsp).
Then in the tracks where I want Reverb, I insert a post-fader send and route it to the bus.
In the thing I'm working on at the moment, if I enable the send on one particular track there is a specific point in the song where all audio stops. The level meters are still going up and down on all the tracks except the bus and the master. If I disable the reverb plugin it all comes back to life again.
The point at which it breaks is coincident with a heavy bass-drum break which makes me think I might be putting too much level into the reverb... but it shouldn't just cut out, should it? The Calf Reverb is the only one that keeps going.
Am I doing it wrong? Anybody have any idea what might be happening?
