I tried this some time ago but had no success. I made my "merge" card
but never appeared in Qjackctl.
I wrote an email to the list about it asking if that wiki is right
because I found other examples on the web that were a little
different. I tested changing things but no luck.
Did you managed to achieve that "merge" card with the exact example
just adapting your card names/references?
