Contains a fix for a another critical bug on OS X that causes ardour to crash when deleting plugins with Carbon-based user interfaces. There are also two other small fixes - logarithmic plugin parameters can now be modified sensibly, and when importing files using the "copy files to session" option, an existing BWF timestamp is no longer lost. All OS X users are recommended to upgrade immediately - for those who have paid for any previous 2.8-series version, it is a free upgrade. Linux users may choose to wait for 2.8.3 in a couple of weeks which will contain a dozen or so other bug fixes. Thanks to Thomas Vecchione for help with debugging the crash, and Nick Murtagh for those two other fixes.

I liked it. There was some constructive feedback on LAU and he is working on another mix of it. Very atmospheric with real samples of the ocean.Link:

Great mid level card that will expand your studios capability. I highly recommend it as a place to start out with multi-track recording.

Compiling a kernel ate up my weekend results in a jump from Slackware 12.2 to Fedora 10 with Planet CCRMA - laziness ftw
Community Participation in the podcast
Steve corrects his poor pronunciation on last weeks featured songwriter - its pronounced Mike Holesteen.
Steve also gets corrected by Paul Deshaw via email - lol. Paul also directs us to Brian's Bedroom Linux Audio Blog for some Hydrogen Midi Drum Templates.
