I did, but I dont think it did the input connections. Maybe because the
output connections failed? I had to enable a mixer strip down the left
side, select inputs and battle my way through the complex tabby port
connections UI (which I have never really groked).  

Also the jack coreaudio stuff seems to use :in and :out, rather than
:playback and :capture, which I found disorienting. I dont use my macs for
audio of course :) so I'm a newbie on that front.

All that took quite a few false starts (eg. looking in the JACK menu and
friends for the connections dialogue).
