For some users, Ardour 6.0 will not look noticeably different from 5.12. However internally there have been huge engineering changes. Indeed, the primary reason for the very long interval between the two releases has been the scope and difficulty of these engineering designs... Ardour release notes
This looks like a massive set of improvements! Finally full latency compensation everywhere
, global varispeed
, que monitoring
and the ability to tap the signal chain anywhere for what's being recorded to disk. Also improvements to midi, plugin management and more supported audio formats, and a lot more! Looking forward to play with this one.
