[Ardour-Users] Sync between internal and external sources

Hi :)

depending to the hardware and what else needs to be synced, it will 
become impossible to compensate timing problems, because jitter can 
become a serious issue, that said that some time ago JACK transport 
itself had a serious sync problem, but that might be cleared out now.

I don't know any musician in my social environment that's fine with 
music productions done by Linux, independent if they are doing 
homerecording or top level professional productions. I was a Linux only 
user since November 2003, but since this month I've a Windows install 
too. I'm still using Linux for anything, but multimedia production, but 
also under Windows, I'm using some FLOSS, that I tried to use under Linux.

Some people aren't able to sense the quality problems for Linux and 
multimedia, some really might not have quality problems, but I never 
heard a audio production that was fine.

I still will test Linux for audio and video again and again, but I need 
a Windows install, because of problems, like the sync problem. There are 
no troubles with Windows for me until now, with the same hardware.

I recommend you Mark Greenwood, to listen to some Linux productions 
yourself and to reason yourself, if what you wish to do is possible by 
using Linux.
