When Open Source and Pro Audio meet

by Carl. 1 Comment

We had the Audacity project for a powerful audio recording and editing environment. We now have the ardour project for a true audio workstation that targets to compete the major options available.

According to the Ardour project web site: “Ardour capabilities include: multichannel recording, non-destructive editing with unlimited undo/redo, full automation support, a powerful mixer, unlimited tracks/busses/plugins, timecode synchronization, and hardware control from surfaces like the Mackie Control Universal. If you’ve been looking for a tool similar to ProTools, Nuendo, Pyramix, or Sequoia, you might have found it.

Ardour currently runs on Linux, Solaris, and Mac OS X.

More, SAE recently announced its support to this project.

Safari for Windows

Great news! Safari for Windows!

For those asking what I’m talking about, Safari is the name of Apple’s Web browser. Available only under Apple’s Mac OS X until now and the foundation of Apple’s iPhone.

Such news can not be left without a reaction.

So I’ve downloaded and installed the application. So far, so good. Everything went fine as expected.

But when browsing to some of my favorite sites some major display defects appear. Looks like some defective CSS support… What so ever! This is quite disapointing… Luckily, a simple button allows for bug report to Apple’s development teams… Some bug reports later I switch back to Firefox… Too bad, may be was Safari launched too soon!
