[Ardour-Users] Fw: got midi to work

Good news is i got midi working but at the expense of audio!
Really pleased about midi, that's very exciting.
The way i did it was with kxstudio repositories.

The new problem i got with audio on booting up both ardour 2.8.12 and ardour 3 is that i get sample rate mis-match error message.
It tells me i'm loading up stuff in 44.1 and that i have the audio engine set at 48.
All the work i've done recently has been at 44.1.
Jack control says 44.1  so why is it telling me this?
Also, what's strange is that there's no option to change the sample rate when running the ardour file like there usually is..

 Then when i hit load session anyway, it loads. Everything looks fine, it plays my old songs as usual but i get no sound from my audiophile.
Actually i can't get any sound from this card at all yet jack.

All advice greatly appreciated.

FWIW the KX developers encourage people to choose Lucid, as they feel it's the best version of Ubuntu for audio. So you can add their PPAs which will give you the latest versions of Jack, Ardour, etc. 
They maintain and backport packages for every release from Lucid to current.
