7.2. Recording a Session

Recording a session usually happens all at once, but sometimes recording can happen over several days or even weeks. Mixing and mastering happen after a session has been recorded. Remember that JACK must have the same sample rate and sample format settings each time you open a session.

7.2.1. Running Ardour

  1. Ardour uses the JACK sound server. Use QjackCtl to start JACK before Ardour, or Ardour starts JACK for you.
  2. Ardour asks you to choose a location to save your new session. Ardour automatically creates a directory to store the session's files. You can also open an existing session.
