What is Ardour for?
I'm not clear what the use-case priorities that drive Ardour are. I looked at the roadmap, and there is really no indication of what (specifically) drives the design.
Is Ardour primarily directed at say, amateur/hobbyist musicians looking for a low-cost alternative to commercial DAWs? Professional Music Production? Post-production?
Obviously there is a very limited development pool, so I surmise there would have to be a lot of attention paid to scope-limiting, or "product focus". What are those limits, and what's the focus, if you don't mind my asking? Where is Ardour now and where is it going? Why?
"At present, there is no roadmap for future development, but there probably should be. "
A very complex software project with thousands of worldwide users and dozens of development contributors...and no roadmap for future development?
Additional comment on that would be extremely interesting, Thanks.
