   I've downloaded and tried running QJC on my Mac Mini. I think I'm
not possibly understanding your instructions above. The GUI is fine
but what 'button the right of the interface combo' are you speaking
about and where do I find the 'human readable device name'? So far I
cannot get Jack to start. I figure it's because I'm not passing the
name of something correctly.

17:38:43.164 JACK is starting...
17:38:43.164 jackd -v -R -dalsa -dhw:0 -r48000 -p1024 -n2 -i0 -o0
17:38:43.172 Could not start JACK. Sorry.
17:38:48.322 JACK was stopped successfully.
