NAME

       ardour - a digital audio workstation

SYNOPSIS

       ardour -b [-U file] [session]
       ardour --help

DESCRIPTION

       Ardour is a multichannel hard disk recorder (HDR) and digital audio workstation (DAW).  It
       is capable of simultaneous recording 24 or more channels of 32 bit audio at 48kHz.  Ardour
       is  intended  to  function  as  a  "professional" HDR system, replacing dedicated hardware
       solutions such as the Mackie HDR, the Tascam 2424 and more traditional tape  systems  like
       the  Alesis  ADAT series.  It is also intended to provide the same or better functionality
       as software systems such as ProTools, Samplitude, Logic Audio, Nuendo and Cubase  VST  (we
       acknowledge  these  and  all  other  names  as trademarks of their respective owners).  It
       supports MIDI Machine Control, and so can be controlled from any MMC controller,  such  as
       the Mackie Digital 8 Bus mixer and many other modern digital mixers.

OPTIONS

       -b     Print all possible keyboard binding names.

       -U     Specify  the  path  to  the  GTK  RC  file  to  use.   The  provided  one is called
              ardour_ui.rc and lives in  the  top  level  Ardour  source  directory.   This  file
              controls all color and font use within Ardour.  Ardour will run without it, but its
              appearance is, uhm, ugly.

       --help Displays the help message.
