Ardour 5.0 released free multitrack for Windows, Mac and Linux  14th August 2016

Ardour v5.0 free multitrack is now available for Linux, OS X and Windows.

Ardour 5.0 is now available for Linux, OS X and Windows. This is a major release focused on substantial changes to the GUI and major new features related to mixing, plugin use, tempo maps, scripting and more. As usual, there are also hundreds of bug fixes. Ardour 5.0 can be parallel-installed with older versions of the program, and does not use the same preference files. It will load sessions from Ardour 2, 3 and 4, though with some potential minor changes.

Windows is now a supported platform

This is the first version of Ardour with official Windows support. Several years of products based on Ardour and our own nightly builds for Windows have made us confident that Ardour runs just as well on Windows as other platforms. We will not be providing support with:

- installing Ardour on Windows
- issues with audio hardware
- system- or user-specific issues

These are out of scope for our developers and user community. However if you have issues actually doing stuff with Ardour, or there are generic problems affecting all Windows users, we will try to provide Windows users with the same kind of assistance that we do on Linux and OS X.

The full list of changes is shown below.
