I know that the sheer volume of templates and libraries Ardour uses
makes it a tough task for any IDE to cope with it properly. I wouldn't
expect too much of any IDE. I would recommend eclipse as a starting
point, not because I can guarantee it to work but because you don't need
to throw money at it to try it. Also, getting ardour to perform well in
eclipse would be a boon to new developers.
