There is a link for getting the source for Ardour2. Its: http://www.ardour.org/releases/ardour2-cvs.tar.bz2 <http://www.ardour.org/releases/ardour-cvs2.tar.bz2>
I think that you will have to upgrade some development stuff before you can compile this. I personally have not worked on compiling it yet, so i cant offer any advice. Sorry...

Oh, right... That's exactly the answer I was looking for - thanks!
I have been recording at 192 kHz (which is the maximum of my sound card)
with 32 bits, so it didn't give me much time. I guess I'll have to
reduce this to 48 kHz and less bits...

Great! Maybe there's a development version I can try that has
