Ardour 5: “could not create session”

Post by peter_b »

Trying to create a new session in Ardour 5, I get the following error message after starting JACK:
Could not create session in $session_path”.
Where $session_path is the directory location of the to-be-created session folder.

First I suspected access right problems, creating the new session folder.
In fact it was that my settings were so that jackd could not start.

Once I fixed my JACK settings, it worked like a charm.
