Ardour revived my band
Band sort of had an extended summer vacation (1.5 years really). Meanwhile I got interested in ardour and sound recording. Got some cheap used equipment (Hoontech DSP2000, 8 analog + 2 digital) and a Ubuntu Studio linux box.
After teaching myself the very basics of sound recording, mixing and mastering (thanks to the forums and a lot of good info in the net), I invited the band over for a recording session. This way we can record ourselves, and use the recordings for practicing at home.
Here's a small example from the second session - please forgive the mistakes, it's the second time in 1.5 years we play this song.
Thanks to ardour, the sound quality is really really good.
