Starting Ardour on Mac OS X
Now that you have Ardour installed on your Mac, let's start it. First you have to open and start JACK (JackPilot) as described in the previous section. Then, simply double-click on the Ardour icon in your Applications folder.
OS X may warn you that Ardour is an application downloaded from the internet. Click 'Open' to confirm you want to open it.
Refer to the Configuring the Soundcard for post-2007 PowerBooks & MacBooks chapter for information on how to fix this.
Otherwise the Session Control window shows up. Name your new project and click on New. This same window can be used to open existing sessions by clicking on the Open Session tab.
