Ardour won't start unless I set GTK2_RC_FILES

Hi all,

I've had this annoying bug(?) where ardour won't start unless I export GTK2_RC_FILES=/dev/null before opening it in a terminal.

I can't remember how to set this permanently, or how to fix it so it doesn't need it.

Can anyone offer some advice please?

Thank you in advance.

Re: "jack" button missing in Ardour.

Straight away! Thank you!

Just clicked it back to JACK and now it's there again. I spent hours going through everything trying to find what had changed.

Thank you so much!

"jack" button missing in Ardour.

Hi all, I fired up Ardour a couple of hours ago to listen to some things I'd recorded and do some editing, but the JACK button that would ordinarily toggle between "INT" and "JACK" now only has "Int" and "Mtc", and no matter what I do, I cannot get it to sync ...

Change Hydrogen DrumKit halfway through a song?

Hi all, I have a song, and at the start I'm using the 808 drumkit, but when the chorus kicks in, I want to use an analaogue kit. Is it possible to change the kit at some point in the same song? Currently, I'm considering piping the output into Ardour, then changing the kit and loading the latter hal...

Re: Drums in Ardour

Just wanted to say...thank you. That works brilliantly! (well almost, I can't hear the drums when the record button is pressed in Ardour, but I'm sure I'll work it out). The only difference to creating a midi channel with the aforementioned drums is that there's obviously no "fan out" opti...

Re: Drums in Ardour

Hydrogen can do one output per instrument. Go to Tools > Preferences and click on the Audio System tab. Tick the box create per instrument outputs . Now you can add tracks in Ardour for each drum, and join them up using the JACK patchbay, accessible through Catia if you use Cadence, or Patchage or ...

Re: Drums in Ardour

Ok then.

What a shame.

I suppose I'm really after the ease of the pattern/song building in Hydrogen with the functionality (fan out) of the drum plugin inside Ardour.

Re: Drums in Ardour

Thanks for the ideas.

So, if I were to use Drum Gizmo, wouldn't I end up in the same situation as I was with the LVI plugins (ie. pattern editing inside Ardour)?

Re: Drums in Ardour

Wow! What a great response. I think that I'll download the kits for Hydrogen and stick with that, as I know it reasonably well already. The only thing I'm not sure of, is say I want to add some reverb to the high-hat, and only the high-hat, I can't find a way to do that. I can pipe the whole drum ki...

Drums in Ardour

Hi all, I've just discovered the AVL drum plugins for Ardour. Am really impressed. Great sounding drums. So I set about having a play and getting used to them, after watching the intro videos on youtube (usually I'd use Hydrogen and link it through JACK), and got some really good beats going, but fo...

Calf Organ Plugin

Hi all, I've been struggling with this for about an hour. I cannot for the life of me work out how to connect my midi-controller keyboard to the Calf-Organ plugin. I can see the keyboard in the Alsa tab of the jack connections and I can see the Calf-Organ in the Midi-Writable Clients tab. I cannot s...

Re: FocusRite Scarlet Solo

Thanks chaps!

I will hopefully have some time this week to try what you've suggested.

I'll post back with an update either way.

Thanks again, truly appreciated.

FocusRite Scarlet Solo

Hi all, My laptop sadly died a few weeks ago - not quite sure why. I have a 2tb HDD and had 3 OS's installed: Mint, Ubuntu Studio and Win10. Mint was the first to go (after a year), then Ubuntu Studio, then Win10. So, I did a hardware check; everything was fine, so re-installed the latest Ubuntu Stu...
