Ardour Nightly Builds

There is no support whatsoever for these builds.
See ardour.org for official releases.

 

!!! ATTENTION !!!

DO NOT DOWNLOAD THESE VERSIONS TO USE ON ACTUAL SESSIONS.
The main branch of Ardour, which is used to build the versions available on this site, has entered a development phase that makes it unsuitable for actual work.

We have tagged it as a new version (7.0-pre0), and a warning will be displayed any time you use it. These versions (or your own self-builds of the main branch) should be considered experimental, unstable and untested. We are not interested in bug reports at this time. A notice will be posted here when the situation changes.

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

Linux builds are compatible with any platform GNU/Linux releases since circa 2016 (glibc ≥ 3.4.21). Builds are available for 64bit Intel systems, as well as ARM (32bit Raspberry Pi) and 64bit ARM systems. Requires X11.

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 7 and any later version.
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).
