Ardour 6.8 Linux Mint on 2014 MacBook Pro

Post by richiewinn »

Hi everyone and thanks for allowing me to join this forum. I'm so frustrated with my setup and feel I'm so close to solving the issue. I'm a long time Logic Pro Mac guy so the switch to Linux Mint and Ardour 6.8 on my 2014 MacBook Pro is like pulling teeth. When I use ALSA in my Audio/MIDI setup I can record but I don't get any playback. If I stop ALSA and switch to Pulse Audio I get the playback but I can't record.

There is a thread here on the Ardour forums that provides the painful progress!!

I'm no expert, but maybe you need the Jack Audio server to connect things in you system?

I had a few difficulties with installing jack (I use Pop!OS 20.04). Starting and stopping it was not really clear to me, I installed Ubuntu Studio Controls and that did the trick for me:

I'm far from an expert on these things, but I found that installing an audio specific distro (eg ubuntu studio or several others) worked well for tidying up these sorts of crazy issues.

Hi, I am new to these forums. I have been running Linux Mint 17 on my MacBook Pro under a Bootcamp install for the past few months and it has been great. But now, I am facing some serious problems.

You are welcome to ask on the forum, there will be surely someone able to help you.
Just be aware that recently there is some AI posting inaccurate information. ;)
