Ardour 4.1 is released!

Ardour 4.1 has just been released. This release sees the addition of some interesting new features, along with the usual bug fixes.

Here's a rundown of some of the new features -

Input gain control - Audio and bus mixer strips now have an input gain control, allowing you to increase or attenuate the input signal by up to 20 dB.

Save as - You can now save the current session to a new location on your disk, with the option to copy the sessions data over to the new location.

Plugin reset - Generic plugin GUI's now have a reset button, allowing you to reset plugin parameters to their default settings.

Remove time - This editing operation removes silence and audio from the edit point, and then moves later material earlier.

Extended clock content menu - You can now edit your sessions tempo/meter setting directly from the clocks context menu. You can also insert a new tempo/meter setting at the playhead from here.

Other features of note include -

  • Relative snap
  • Scroll wheel can now be used on drop down menus
