In April 2007, SAE Institute agreed to become a corporate sponsor for
the Ardour project. Focus of the collaboration between Paul Davis,
creator and developer of Ardour, and Armand Klenk, Head Instructor Audio
at SAE Munich, was the development of an OS X version of the Linux-based
software. A special student version, created in a parallel effort, will
now make the open-source digital audio workstation even more accessible
to beginners. With contributions from other Ardour developers,
particularly Nick Mainsbridge and assistance from the GTK/OSX team, we
are pleased to announce the first public release of the Ardour/SAE

The SAE version has a slimmed down user interface, alternate keybindings
and a different menu layout than “Ardour Classic”. It also has few
limitations designed to make simpler for people just starting to use a
DAW. However, both versions are completely compatible with each other,
and sessions created with one version (on any platform) can be used with
the other.

Corresponding versions of Ardour “Classic” (v2.7) will be released in
the next few days, including our first “public” native version for OS X.
