Jack and Mbox

Post by Looter »

A few years ago when I first thought of trying recording my guitar with Linux my cousin gave me an older Avid Mbox which I was not able to figure out how to get it to work. Fast forward to more recent history, I picked up a Scarlett 2i2 which after some learning have been able to work with jack, guitarix, audacity and ardour. This got me wondering if with what I have learned can I get the Mbox to work also. So I tried it and jack just doesn't see it. With both audacity and ardour the Mbox is in the pulldown for record and playback and it works, but it just doesn't show up anywhere on jack. Any ideas?

I know some of you are wondering if I have the 2i2 and it's working, why am I messing with the old Mbox? Mostly educational, and it never hurts to have a backup.
