I have posted several times about my problems with Ardour on Ubuntu 13.04. Sincere help has been given, for which I am grateful.
The problem which remains, however, is that it is impossible to connect my MIDI controller to the softsynth. This means that Ardour is of limited use to me.
Therefore I propose to cancel my subscription and use a program which I know will work.
Please try to dissuade me. I believe in Linux and all he stands for, and my hair is grey already.
The change will involve using W***ndows.
