Hey guys. One of the major reasons I switched from Windows to Ubuntu was for the free digital recording software (Ardour, Rosegarden, etc.), but I've been having a lot of trouble getting that sort of thing to work. I've downloaded Ardour as well as Rosegarden, and neither one of them will record anything I put into it. I can get Ardour to play the audio I'm putting through (I run my guitar through the line in port). The audio meters rise, and the guitar plays through my speakers. However, when I arm it to record and press the record button, the track will skim along as if it's playing, and nothing is recorded.
The one program I have been able to record through is Audacity, but that's only when I run the Windows version through Wine. Apparently Ubuntu hates my computer.
Do you guys have any suggestions for me? I can give extra information if needed. Any help at all would be greatly appreciated; if I can't figure this problem out, I'll most likely be switching back over to windows
