[Ardour-Users] Cleaning up unused regions

Tape mode is really not appropriate for this, it may seem like it at
first until you start trying to edit those regions.
There is no way to automatically do what you are thinking about right
now. I have discussed various ways to accomplish allowing live
reocrdings to take up far less room with several people and as of
right now my plan is to eventually implement the ability to record to
FLAC, it causes a performance hit, but in initial testing it seemed
acceptable. However the amount of space taken up by silence is
practically nothing, to the point there wasn't any benefit to doing a
fancier method that only actually wrote material in those sections.
Now will it work with larger track count live sessions? I won't know
until I try and I haven't even coded in support for it yet so don't
hold your breath.
