Peakfile and Playback Distortion
Firstly, many thanks to all those who've worked
on creating and maintaining Ardour!
After using Ardour 0.99.3 without any problems,
I've just compiled and installed 2.0beta8 and
am now running into a problem with distortion
on playback with both versions of Ardour. It's
my guess that the install has overwritten
something used by the old version, or that
they're sharing some data file somewhere, etc.
Note: recordings made before the recent
installation of 2.0beta8 still
play back without sounding distorted; the
problem is only with data that's just been
Is there usually a problem with having both
versions installed? If didn't appear so at
first, since ardour and ardour2 were names
used for binary files and directories created
by the installations.
Back to the distortion: after exiting Ardour,
there were lines in the xterm telling me that
there was a problem reading peak data in
the peakfile. Can someone kindly explain
what that means and what may be causing the
problem with distortion?
Happy new year!
