for me, ardour is quite a bit more stable than cubase was for me in XP, as
well as more capable. i usually find when ardour is crashy, its something im
doing which is causing the instability. i was trying the new irlv2 plugin,
and that seemed to cause instability. i tried using another packaged version
of the irlv2 plug from falktx's KXstudio ppa, and ardour (so far) has been
stable again. i personally enjoy the way JACK lets me push my system, and
find the limitations of my hardware. i remember doing something similar in
cubase where i would push the limits of latency and get a less stable
system, making cubase less stable. i have been in studios where most of the
big name current popular DAW's have crashed. when you push any system to its
limits, you can get instability. i find Paul Davis and the ardour team to be
quite responsive to comments and bug reports. if you are experiencing ardour
instability not relating to personal configuration errors, i urge you to get
involved, and report your findings. personally, i find if i relax my JACK
settings a bit, the system becomes stable again.
