[ardour-users] Using ardour with jack stream as audio source

Thanks to the developers for writing such a wonderful software package. I 
have a question that has been bugging me for a while. Is it possible to set 
up ardour in such a way that it operates *without* stored audio, but *with* 
automation (streaming audio from jack perhaps?)

I'm thinking this would be useful in at least two scenarios:

- to use ardour in combination with soft synth (preventing the need to 
export the tracks to audio over and over again), or

- to stream audio into ardour directly from the disks of a harddisk recorder 
(possibly resulting in better performance than streaming it from a PC 

Is this possible? Has anyone done this? Are there any caveats I should pay 
attention to?

Best regards,
