So here is an interesting tidbit for yall....
      09/10/06 06:06 PM
A few months ago Paul Davis (One of the primary programmers behind Ardour) had mentioned he was being employed full time again by a company with the express purpose of keeping him working on Ardour. He also mentioned that the company was rather large in the audio industry, but that he wasn't allowed to announce who it was yet.

He posted this to the list today...


Several months ago, I was happy to announce my employment by a then-
unknown company that enabled me to get back to full time work on Ardour.
On Friday last week, that employer announced their involvement with me
and the Ardour project overall. From's announcement:

The Ardour project is happy to be able to announce the involvement and
support of Solid State Logic (SSL), one of the most respected and
trusted names in the field of audio technology. SSL has chosen to
support Ardour's development and to promote the idea of its broader
adoption within the audio technology industry. SSL's Managing Director,
Antony David, had this to say at SSL's AES press announcement:

[ ... ] Solid State Logic is committed to providing users with a
range of products that enhance the experience of producing music
or sound for picture. We are becoming a much more open company
and are establishing strategic partnerships throughout the
industry to deliver a new breed of hardware and software
solutions to audio workstation users. Our collaboration with
Waves and Algorithmix are examples.

Continuing down this track, SSL is proud to announce its
involvement with the Ardour workstation. We have been funding
development of the Ardour platform for a number of months and
plan to continue through our relationship with its key developer
Paul Davis.

[ ... ]

Our involvement with Ardour should not be seen as exclusive of
other workstation manufacturers and we regard the Ardour
platform as important for an industry that doesn't currently
have a truly open project interchange standard or an open
platform for plug-in developers. The open architecture and
platform neutral technology of the Ardour workstation are a
natural fit with SSL's long-term vision to provide scalable and
customisable solutions to a rapidly growing customer base.

The Ardour project continues to work with Harrison on its own product
plans for Ardour, and we look forward to welcoming the participation and
support of other companies and organizations.

So that puts Harrison/GLW and SSL both behind Ardour. Me likey very much;)
