Not much to comment on unfortunately.
It will open with only internal audio active in Jack
but crashes as soon as I try to import a file.
The one time it didn't crash, the waveform didn't
even display properly.
I spent the better part of 2 days straight trying to work through
problems, but with no luck.
in all fairness some people have had great success
with Ardour under OSX.
I'm just not one of them.
I'm also hoping that it's ported over completely to
the OSX windowing system and dumps X11.
Well one can hope.
