Ardour is a digital recording software designed to record, edit, and mix. The software takes the input from a recording device like a microphone and allows the product to be altered until the person mixing and editing is satisfied with the sound. Among other things, Ardour features an easy to use design that allows for easier mixing and editing. The software very comprehensive and allows for countless different options for editing. They claim to be more flexible than other similar pieces of software as well as less of a pain to use. Once you have a final product, you can easily export it.

Many recording pieces of software are both complicated and hard to use. Ardour manages to avoid that trap with its easy to use layout. However, it still allows you to do a lot with the sound that you have captured. I found the software to be very useful for simple mixing as well as for more complicated and thorough projects. The software is great for people all across the music and sound industry, including musicians and audio engineers. It is useful both for professionals and for novices. No matter what level of musician or sound engineer you are, it never hurts to have some reliable software available. Several of the software's features stand out as incredibly useful, including MIDI multi-track editing and mixing, which means that you can record and edit several tracks at once or put together several tracks seamlessly. Ardour is also great for collaboration, allowing multiple groups to work on projects at the same time from different locations. This added collaboration leads to endless creativity and is crucial for up and coming musicians today.
I like Ardour not only because it's an open source programm but also because it has so many features that you can practically use it for everything. It runs without any major problem in every operative system, but it has more compatible plugins in Linux.
