How to list all the plugins used in an Ardour project

Post by caprenter »

I wanted to be able to list all the plugins used in an Ardour project so that I could give credit where credit is due when publishing music. Y'know something I can just copy and paste elsewhere.

I asked the question over at the Ardour forum, and thought it was worth pointing out that this can be done quite easily!
The original discussion is here:
https://discourse.ardour.org/t/how-do-i ... ect/104641

(You can run 'List Plugins' LUA script, that is already available to you. The suggestion is to assign it to the buttons in the top right of the Editor window)

The explanation by Robin Gareus is better than anything I can do, so check the original post at the Ardour forum.

I modified the script slightly to get a slightly different output which made it much easier to add the credit to this track for example:
https://theargentgrub.bandcamp.com/track/i-cant-breathe

Thanks for bringing this up, I needed that recently too.

I would suggest posting the full source of your modified version of the script to something like gist.github.com. Manual instructions in a forum post where to edit a script in which way aren't exactly accessible and durable ;)
