    3. Noppity-nope, same ole same ole. Toolkits, GTK, the whole circus

    It would, indeed, be great if the post had more info about the project (hint to Michael: there's a thread in Zrythm's forum on reasons this project exists). Maybe that would shape the conversation differently.
    Hi Alex. Have you covered zrythm on LGW? I was also looking for a value proposition that makes it any different than Ardour, but didn't find anything. Could you link to said forum post?

    Off topic: Since I'm talking to you, I guess I should tell you that the version of TLS in LGW is deprecated and is being removed from all browsers and already disabled by default. That, plus the self-signed cert, makes the site quite hard to reach.

I don't see a value proposition to move me in any way. Already works with Jack. Already works with VSTs, linux plugins, etc. Learning a DAW is an investment in time and effort, even if it is free. Where is the value proposition? What am I being offered?
      By the looks of it, I would say Zrythm is more midi-oriented than Ardour (just a supposition looking at their webpage, I didn't actually try this software).

        If you don't do electronic music (think EDM, drone etc.) or don't use MIDI extensively, you don't have to even bother.

        However, if you do, it's a good idea to watch this project. Not use immediately (you wouldn't be able to, it's just too unstable right now), mind you, but maybe keep a keen eye on it.

          Not yet, but I guess I'll have to — despite some problems with it

          I've been watching this project for 1.5+ years now. It's... How do I put it right... Both exciting and problematic. It doesn't have some MIDI workflow issues that I have with Ardour, it's fresh and new and seems to have a lot of potential. It has a lot of Olive vibe for me. But it's also unstable as hell, and it's always been that way. I appreciate that it tries to recover a project after a crash (just like any other software for creatives should) but right now it's just too much for me.

          Sure, it's here: https://forum.zrythm.org/t/history-of-zrythm/23

          It doesn't have a self-signed certificate. It's all HTTP. Not HTTPS I think my hosting company is trying to place some sort of a certificate when you force https:// on the domain, but I don't think I have any control over that. There is a new website in the works, for quite a long while now. It's a different domain name and HTTPS from ground up. I could probably go with Let's Encrypt on the old website but I just never have the patience to dig deeper. Family, work, and making new content always win the battle over my attention

            You know what, I changed my opinion.
            This is garbage.

            It offers no benefits over Ardour, and instead has the SJW-backed Contributor Covenant with a "nice UI" as a disguise. Ughhhhh

            I have not built it yet, but I am sure it will crash as soon as I begin using it for a real project.
