What I do on any stand-alone-recording is that I am using timemachine
and its w64-format to record. And then I import/link these into an
ardour-session for mixing/mastering. There isn't even a need for
splitting these recording prior the cutting in ardour as ardour can
read/import the w64-format just fine...

Wenn man mit Raubkopien Bands wie Brosis oder Britney Spears wirklich
verhindern könnte, würde ich mir noch heute einen Stapel Brenner und
einen Sack Rohlinge kaufen.
