session convert between Ardour and Traverso?
Hi everybody! well... first to the problem then to the question:
i use an old laptop with firewire port and i would like very much use it to record live performances, say 8-16 channels and i actually have a saffire pro 40 which is perfect for that but ffado don't seem like its stable enough to keep up with that interface so im facing the eventual problem of "having to record on Windows" for which i wont have drivers issues and then take the session back to Ubuntu.... that leads to the next questions:
1. have anybody here used a saffire pro 40 with ffado being fully functional? including ADAT?
2. whats my best open source DAW option to record from Windows and then bring the recording back to Linux? i know its not Ardour.
3. is there any way to convert or export sessions between that open source DAW in Win. and Ardour?
4. (and last... a little out of context) anybody know of a 8+ channel USB interface able to work in Linux? this question sounds stupid but really... it isn't.... most laptops available today are lacking FW or even Express Card options, but they all come with USB 2.0 for sure, and in my country is even harder to find a good FW or Express Card Laptop (thinking... RME pci express interfaces for the future)
