Ardour 2.7 the SAE Institute Edition – free Open-Source DAW for Mac OS X

Thanks to the support of SAE Institute, the Apple OS X version of the popular free audio editing software will be available as native version for download now (Intel Mac only).

Digital recording, mixing with professional plugins, fast, intuitive editing, audio analysis of percussive material plus integration of the Rubber Band timestretch/pitch-shifting library… and all of this for free? Enter the SAE Institute version of Ardour for OS X!

In April 2007, SAE Institute agreed to become a corporate sponsor for the Ardour project. Focus of the collaboration between Paul Davis, creator and developer of Ardour, and Armand Klenk, Head Instructor Audio at SAE Institute Munich, was the development of an OS X version of the Linux-based software. A special student version, created in a parallel effort, will now make the open-source digital audio workstation even more accessible to beginners.

Ardour has become a fixture in many European universities and other educational institutions and is routinely employed in experimental research projects.
