qjackctl with "JACK Bridges"

Postby khz » Wed Jan 02, 2019 7:59 pm

rncbc: Would a "JACK Bridges" setting option be possible in qjackctl? Similar to https://kxstudio.linuxaudio.org/Applications:Cadence. :-D

Pulseaudio to JACK bridge on Cadence is redundant
If Pulseaudio is correctly configured with module-jackdbus-detect, Pulseaudio JACK Sink/Source connections are automatically loaded when JACK starts
I have seen a few Cadence users turn on the Pulseaudio bridge option without noticing that connections are already loaded and create a second pair of Pulseaudio connections

in QjackCtl just need to turn on 2 settings to use D-Bus, Pulseaudio JACK Sink/Source connections are automatically loaded

if using D-Bus is not possible or preferable, Pulseaudio sinks and sources can be loaded by simple terminal commands
This can be configured to run automatically in QjackCtl using option to run script after JACK started

QjackCtl option to run script after JACK started can also be used for connections to ALSA loopbacks
Not recommended to run both ALSA and Pulseaudio connections

So, in this case, the JACK bridge is unnecessary?

Pulseaudio JACK connections can launch automatically with D-Bus when JACK starts
If so, Cadence option to load Pulseaudio JACK connections may not be needed, unless 2nd pair of connections is wanted

If not using D-Bus, Pulseaudio connections can be created after JACK is started with commands:

Code: Select all

pactl load-module module-jack-sink
pactl load-module module-jack-source
