Several months ago, I was happy to announce my employment by a then-
unknown company that enabled me to get back to full time work on Ardour.
On Friday last week, that employer announced their involvement with me
and the Ardour project overall. From ardour.org's announcement:

The Ardour project is happy to be able to announce the involvement and
support of Solid State Logic (SSL), one of the most respected and
trusted names in the field of audio technology. SSL has chosen to
support Ardour's development and to promote the idea of its broader
adoption within the audio technology industry. SSL's Managing Director,
Antony David, had this to say at SSL's AES press announcement:

        [ ... ] Solid State Logic is committed to providing users with a
        range of products that enhance the experience of producing music
        or sound for picture. We are becoming a much more open company
        and are establishing strategic partnerships throughout the
        industry to deliver a new breed of hardware and software
        solutions to audio workstation users. Our collaboration with
        Waves and Algorithmix are examples.
        Continuing down this track, SSL is proud to announce its
        involvement with the Ardour workstation. We have been funding
        development of the Ardour platform for a number of months and
        plan to continue through our relationship with its key developer
        Paul Davis. 
        [ ... ]
        Our involvement with Ardour should not be seen as exclusive of
        other workstation manufacturers and we regard the Ardour
        platform as important for an industry that doesn't currently
        have a truly open project interchange standard or an open
        platform for plug-in developers. The open architecture and
        platform neutral technology of the Ardour workstation are a
        natural fit with SSL's long-term vision to provide scalable and
        customisable solutions to a rapidly growing customer base.

The Ardour project continues to work with Harrison on its own product
plans for Ardour, and we look forward to welcoming the participation and
support of other companies and organizations.
