Thanks for the quick reply!

Do you have any idea why before I configured Jack with force 16 bit I had
distorted sound when playing back audio in ardour?
Now I'm trying to use rosegarden and got the same problem, but now with
MIDI.
I'm a bit lost here.

Ardour and jack will always communicate their audio via float (that i=
s 32bit
real numbers). As only very few devices implement that, most devices are
talked to in integer-numbers. The newer ones are capable of doing 24bit
integers, some older ones are fixed to 16bit integers. So forcing jack to t=

to the audio-device in 16bit might give you lower quality during playback a=

recording but it will not affect the internal quality of the sound processi=

done inside jack and ardour and all the apps. And files exported from ardou=

will also not be affected by that jack-setting.
