Is that a screenshot with the headphones plugged in?

You could use trial and error, play something back and connect to playback_1 to _8 until you hear something.

Now I have to see if Rakarrak works in conjunction with Ardour and if I need to "wire it up" in JACK with Patchage, beyond how I already have patchage working with Rakarrak.

I got Rakarrak sort of working with patchage/JACK and Ardour, but when I click FX Off I get horrible feedback. And the effects aren't pronounced enough, almost like wet or dry isn't right but I'm adjusting them still to little effect.

On the headphones, Playback 3-8 being on does nothing, seems that the only way to use the headphones is to have the speakers working too, and turn them down AT the speakers themselves.

But I DO need help with something more exigent to this: When I restart Patchage and Ardour, I have to redo all the settings, Ardour and Patchage don't remember what I've wired them as. HOw do I fix that? It's a PITA to rewire every time, I have to disable all connections inside Ardour and wire up Patchage correctly in order to not have feedback light showing.

Ardour can manage connections. You don't need Patchage -- that was an easy way to see what was going on.

If you change connections Ardour should save that.

Start with a new project and you shouldn't get feedback. You can import the .wav files you have recorded.

To mange connections in Ardour go to Window > Audio Connections. Ardour uses a matrix format, rather than the wires format of Patchage.

It isn't saving the settings and when it first opens it goes back to feedback issues. Will saving a Template work for this? If so, how do I load the template upon startup?

I can't imagine a sensible default is to have feedback. Is it always Audio 2 wired to itself?

When I open Ardour a dialogue appears where I can load an existing session or create a new one. If you create a new session and choose 'empty' there should be no feedback.

I want to express gratitude for all the help folks! Sometimes RTFM does solve everything, but I'll dig in more. Much much thanks!
