QjackCtrl

I tried lots of different memory settings because log say it can't get a lock. Also server wont start with RealTime option ticked. After server start, the system get unstable. If I try to stop the server, FW active LED on the card shutoff as it should then QjackCtrl freeze.

Any input is very appreciated!

Your user-account needs to be in the system-group audio. Please check that in the system-tool for groups and users. Some overlays also create a group named jack or jack-users, check those as well and don't worry: being in one of these groups without need to be wont hurt much ;-)

Regarding the sound itself:

Have you checked the mixer-settings? Some devices are supported by ffadomixer, the Focusrite-Gear is known to be supported quite well....

Thanks for your answer. This is a very old topic and I can't verify if your solution is working. I was trying to convert my father to Linux but it's easier for him to simply use Windows. –  01BTC10 Jan 20 '13 at 19:36
