|0001993: Peak files are endian dependent
|Copying sessions for OSX (ppc) to linux (x86) made peak files come up as big blocks. To solve the issue, I erased the peak files, and ardour regenerated them just fine. Thanks for the tip LAS.
|No tags attached.
|I suppose in an ideal world ardour would spot this and regenerate peak files when appropriate.
|ardour can't really know. i guess there is a heuristic which would take the values and see if they appeared to be at least reasonably close to the -1..+1 range, but its nothing more than a guess. i do concede that it would work 99% of the time :)
|:) I suppose I was thinking of writing some kind of check word to peak files, or something, so that endian-ness would be known.
