Good call on Ardour; I probably would have had the easiest time working
with this file in Ardour. Ardour is sweet. But for just editing one long
audio file, it seemed a bit like overkill. Also, I'd be too tempted to
overdub onto it, which is a no-no for a live recording :-)

There are actually very good reasons to use ardour for post-processing of
live-recordings:
- Its completely non-destructive, even if you slice your 2-hour-file into
10-seconds snippets and rearrange them and delete them one-by-one, you still
don't loose the material. Yes, you should have backups, but who knows...
- Its _very_ easy to apply mastering effects over the whole session. (And
with the jamin-control-plugin you can change settings between songs.)
- And all editing on effects and automation is non-destructive too. That is
very nice compared to clicking "apply effect (silence)", having the computer
work for ten minutes and the realize that a) its the wrong effect and b)
the "create undo" wasn't selected.
- ardour is definitely not trying to load the whole 2-hour file into ram...

Don't forget the CD markers -> TOC export for creating CDs easily with
Ardour. Works great for live CDs where you want to add track
boundaries with no gaps for disk-at-once burning.

I like the idea of using Ardour and jamin to master a live recording,
but it has to be done in real time, correct?  Forgive me if this is an
obvious question (I've just started to learn about Ardour and Jack, I
didn't know about the CD markers thing),  but say I have a two hour
live concert recording.   I run it through jamin and then back to
re-record in Ardour.   Since it is going to take two hours in real
time, I'd like to start it and let it run overnight --- how do i get it
to stop, and just keep running all night?   or is there an easier or
better way to do this?  Most tutorials I can find are old or incomplete.
