Humm....harder than I thought. Monitor is enabled in Jack and the
monior ports now show up in QJC. Ardour sees them and allows me to
route to them to track inputs. For simplicity I'm running Aqualung
under Jack as a sound source. Aqualung is playing back over
playback_1/2 and showing up on output_1/2 but I'm not getting audio in
Ardour on monitor_1/2.

I also tried turning on hardware and software monitoring and
restarting Ardour but no go. I can route Aqualung to an Ardour input
and I do get audio on that channel but not on any of the tracks
attached to these monitor lines.

I presume this is tested on the HDSP lines? You use one don't you?

What am I doing wrong?
