Okay now that the playhead seems to work, how do I get sound into
ardour2 using the line in jack on my computer.
qjackctl lists the following connection items
dev/dsp and dev/dsp0: both of these items when activated in the
Driver settings in setup will cause jack to error out with an error
about not being able to get the device (OSS problem)
Oss: Jack will not load this as a Driver
Alsa: Jack loads this just fine as a Driver
hw 0,0: is the playback channel (this gets locked out of use if you
have an audio cd playing in the drive)
hw 0,2: (I have not figured out what this one is yet but it is only
available on the Input channel selection)
hw 0: this is available in both Input and playback channels, does not
seem to affect anything.
When Ardour2 starts up qjackctl's patchbay will show all appropriate
possible connections that Ardour has (Audio 1-1, Audio 1-2, Master 1,
Master 2 etc.)
I have tried just about every possible configuration within
qjackctl's patch bay to get sound input to Ardour but nothing works.
Occasionally the meters will go high if the capture1 and capture2
items are active in Ardours meter strip input section but the levels
are static (right channel about double the strength of the left
channel). When monitor1 and monitor2 are selected in the same section
then there is no meter activity at all.
There is sound being piped in through line in (it is coming through
Weird, any suggestions?
