ardour not visible in qjack

Post by LarrySummers »

When I fire up Rosegarden then go into Qjack, Rosegarden has configured Jack so that Rosegarden shows up in the routing for Audio, Midi, etc. But when I start up Ardour I don't see any reference to Ardour in QJack. Audio works fine in Ardour, but I'm trying to get midi working in Ardour (works in Rosegarden). Is there a way to insert Ardour routings into Jack? Thanks.

Ardour from v 4 and up lets you choose between JACK and direct ALSA connections. Are you sure Ardour is set to use JACK?
All in favor of Linux, say 'aye.'

Note also that ardour will use jack midi while Rosegarden uses alsa midi. You need a bridge to route alsa midi to/from jack midi (ajmidid or similar).

I recommend you launch qjacktl and start jack from it before any jack-aware program instead of letting Rosegarden start jack.
