Ok, to record in ardour you need to do three things:

1] connect the input of the track you want to record to to a readable
jack port

2] turn on "rec" [recording] on that track

3] hit record in the transport bar..

oh, it'4 if i remember corect:

4] hit play to actually start rolling [and recording]

Which if these steps is giving you trouble?


to sign or not to sign, that is the question
