I am trying to setup my system to run Reaper linux and Bitwig Studio and am trying to get my audio setup properly. I have a Focusrite Saphire 24 Pro firewire interface.
I have Jack 0.9.2-1 installed but it will not start either through Cadence or through the Jack Audio connection kit.
I'm confused...First am I running the correct version of Jack? There is Jack, Jack-Dbus, Jack 2, and some others. I really don't want to hose my system through continuous trial and error. I was hoping someone could shed some light on this. As much as I have searched I can't seem to find anything definitive on which Jack version to use when, and for what reason.
I have switched over to a Real Time kernal and have configured my system per the github realtimecinfigquickscan.
I have a TI Firewire card that performs flawlessly under Windows and is on the Focusrite whitelist. I have installed the FFADO mixer. The Jack Audio connection kit said I needed the FFADO driver. Then when I installed the driver the mixer was uninstalled. This seems to be way more convoluted than it should be. Anyone with experience in this have some advice? I'd like to at least get pointed in the right direction as I have already tanked my system once using the trial and error method Timeshift saved me so at least I didn't have to start completely from scratch. It's crazy it should not have to be this complicated. I can see now why some normal users are reluctant to take a go at Linux. I'm stubborn and will probably figure it out (eventually) but I'm sure a lot of others would just give it up at this point.
