Summary0004040: Drop outs in a session even during export
DescriptionAs mentioned yesterday in the IRC I have a serious problem with a session. At some point ardour produces drop outs while playing back and when exporting a range. I made a tar.gz file of the session and you may download it from (9Gb).

I have two drop outs. First at position 00:45:13 and second one a little bit later. It results in a short moment of silence.
TagsNo tags attached.

Hi Herbie,

Could you just upload the .ardour file. 9 GByte is a bit much to have a quick look.. I suspect that the problem is related to [volume] automation on one of the tracks.

I've experienced a similar problem - small periods of silence - during export: they're not actually drop-outs but NaN signals. The fix was to remove all negative volume automation points in the .ardour session file.

discussed on 09/27/2011 - [Ardour-Dev] ardour3 + automation + fader-desk.

what would be really helpful when this happens is to see the .ardour file from within the session folder so that we can check automation values. its not very big - just attach it to this bug report.

I can't reproduce this, sadly.
