also i just tried selecting a range and delting it from the region.
Then the waveform changed(got erased)but the region stayed in place.
recognizing this a few moments later ardour crashed.

Now it recovered. It just took a really long time and some unpatient (x) clicking.. :D

Which version have you installed (Menu > Help > About)?

Could you provide step by step instruction how to reproduce this? How you do you change loudness of a Region? Do you mean Region Gain (Alt + 6/7)?

Version is 6.6.489-dbg.
I tried to reproduce it after i advanced in the session. It works with the region i mentioned before now. But it seems, to reproduce the bug, the audioregion has to be freshly added.
Then the same two bugs appear. First the level is not changed in the GUI and then, after deleting a range from the region, there is this bug in the gui and ardour crashes a few moments later.
After restoring the session after it crashed the gain gets displayed properly but the range deleting does not work and causes crashes.
Now i saved the project after restoring it. Restarted ardour. It is still crashing when deleting ranges from the region.
It works though when i use the scissor tool to cut the region and delete the resulting regions.
But that introduces the bug with wrong display of gain again for every left region.
I use Region Gain (Alt + 6/7) but on my system its set up to work with another key: ? & ?

> to reproduce the bug, the audioregion has to be freshly added.

How do you do that?

I just tried with 6.6-493

1. Create a new Session
2. Add an audio track (mono)
3. Record-arm the track
4. Record (ca 10 sec)
5. Select the newly recorded region
6. Menu > Region > Gain > Boost Gain

Works as expected. The waveform is level increases visually and the Region name has a suffix (+1.0dB).

7. Session > Import (I picked a mono wav file) .. as new track .. one track per file .. insert at session-start .. and copy to session
8. Select Region
9. Menu > Region > Gain > Boost Gain and Alt + 6 a few times..

Also works.

This is with (near) default preferences. Although I don't think there are any related prefs.

That would indicate that for some reason the region isn't added, maybe a bug in the split operation.

I just tried it with a new session.
Imported wav as a new track.
changed gain -> works
Deleted Range from the region. -> works
change gain -> does not display
Delete another Range -> crashes
So it really seams to have something to do with splitting the regions.

Thanks, reproduced.

1. Import region
2. select a range
3. press `delete`
4. select the later 2nd region ... (it's not in the region-list either)
5. perform some operation on it.. (has no effect or crashes)
