Not to derail the thread or anything but I thought I'd put it out there
that the kxstudio ppas configure jack to work out of the box.

I thought I heard that falktx (the main kxstudio dev) is now involved with
the Ubuntu Studio project so maybe it's all good there too? I have no idea.

I do know that my vanilla 12.04 Ubuntu setup works like a charm using said
ppas. Granted, so far I haven't done any serious recording projects in
Ubuntu but the tracks I've played with and imported into ardour work as
expected.

Perhaps kxstudio might help someone else?

y experience:

I recently bought a Toshiba Sattelite p 850 and installed Ubuntu Studio 12.=
10. It's slick and mostly just minor tweaks needed to take care of my o=
ffice needs.

Then onto musical needs; connect Roland Edirol UA-25EX and start Ardour, wh=
ich exits unable to start jack. Run qjackctl, try different settings. Final=
ly getting it to run and able to start Ardour I completely fail to record a=
nything. More fiddling with settings. Jack hangs on exit. Ardour crashes. T=
here is no sound from gmusicbrowser or internet either. Hair is pulled out.=
Starting over.

And everything seems to work, I say "testing, testing" to my mike=
and hit a few keys on my synth, meters showing input - but it turns out wh=
at is actually working is the internal mike. No recording through USB...

I search forums and pull out more hair, to no avail. I randomly change sett=
ings, and suddenly!

So here's my recipe to have it all work _out of the box_:

1. connect UA-25EX
2. power up Ubuntu Studio
3. Start jack. Settings:

Realtime box: checked
Priority: DEFAULT
Frames/period: 128 (higher number, more latency. With this I have 8ms)
Sample Rate: 48000 (same as USB interface UA-25EX)
Periods/buffer: 3
Dither: None
Audio: Duplex
Interface: hw:1 (this will possibly be different on another machine)
Input device: default
Output device: default
Channels I/O: default
Latency I/O: default

4. Open sound settings. Disable built-in-audio and set jack sink as fallbac=
k
5. Run Ardour and record whatever from wherever! All playback going through=
USB interface.

So in the end it was quite simple and working out of the box, it was just b=
loody unintuitive to figure out. And mind you, I still get in trouble if I =
run sound through pulse before starting jack.

But all in all I like my Ubuntu Studio better and better!

Hope this will be helpful for someone.
