Harrison Mixbus and Ardour
I've been using Ardour for several months now and recently decided that I would contribute financially (since I have enjoyed using it so far). However, just after I made my contribution I discovered the Harrison Mixbus option, and was so convinced that it would be a great addition to Ardour that I bought it.
After downloading the MIxbus software I noticed that it was not an 'addition' at all... it's it's own separate application! So, it looks like the version of Ardour that I have is now obsolete... is this true!?
My question: is there a use for the version of Ardour that has now been humbled by the powerful Mixbus software (which I will be sinking my teeth into very soon)? Or... will it become just another dusty application that I will send to the bin...?
Maybe I'm missing something about the difference between the two.
