Linux Mac/OSX MS/Windows Static Analysis Build Dependencies

 

These are automatic builds of the Ardour Digital Audio Workstation (latest git developer version) intended for testing only. They are created every 24 hours, usually in the early morning UTC but the actual time varies. See Ardour Git Log for recent changes.

Full-featured (non-free) versions are provided as service to subscribers. Use your ardour.org credentials to identify yourself for download.

GNU/Linux

GCC-4 builds are compatible with any Intel platform GNU/Linux releases since circa 2009 (glibc ≥ 2.2.5). Requires X11.
GCC-5 versions need a recent (2016) platform GNU/Linux with (glibc ≥ 3.4.21).
Download the .run installer and launch it.
One way to accomplish this is in a terminal: sh Ardour_<version>.run (substitute version).
The alternative is to use a file-browser, right-click on the downloaded file, select properties, checkbox: allow execution. Then double-click to run the installer [first time linux README].

Linux versions can be installed in parallel including alongside distribution packages. They are installed to /opt/Ardour-version/ (Note: The installer will ask to run an uninstaller, answer "no" if you wish to keep older versions alongside the new one ).

MS/Windows

Compatible with Windows XP and any later version. (JACK is optional.)
The Windows installer will replace the current version. (Note: If Ardour does not exit cleanly, uninstalling or replacing an existing installation will fail to replace font-files included with ardour. You can ignore this or fix it by rebooting the system).
