After several years of using Ardour I thought I'd follow the trend and
post a couple of things here for general amusement :)

They should however carry a health warning: they're mostly long prog-rock

Everything here except the lead vocals were done in Ardour. Mostly live,
with overdubs.

The only reason the lead vocals weren't Ardour is that the singer recorded
them separately at her home setup.

And this is 100% Ardour, and was a more conventional layer-by-layer studio

All the effects (beyond those inherent in the instruments) are free LADSPA
plugins, so this is a pure Open Source effort.

I'm pretty happy with the results I've been getting. My skills at mixing
and mastering aren't great, and recording drums in a shoebox room is always
going to be a challenge, but all in all I think ardour holds up to the
challenge really well.

Oh, and if anyone with more mixing skills is interested in helping out in
future... ;)
