[SOLVED] Jack Transport and command line

Post by CrocoDuck »

Hi cool people!

I need to write a script to help me out in measuring audio equipment. I need to start the jack transport from command line. I have tried this:

Code: Select all

jack_transport
but I don't like it. In facts, that command will open an interface where I can type the instructions. I don't really know how to include that in a script. I would like something like this:

Code: Select all

#!/bin/sh

fancy_command_for_transport start # to start the transport
fancy_command_for_transport stop # to stop the transport
fancy_command_for_transport rewind # to rewind the transport
Is there any utility like that? If not, there is any way I can use jack_transport inside a script?
