To launch Jack with default drivers, start 'Jack Portaudio' or 'Jack NetDriver'.
Once Jack Server Started, you can launch QJackctl with the 'Jack Control' shortcut.
JACK on Windows
'Jack Command' starts a terminal from your installation folder. You can get a list of available Portaudio drivers with :
This installer will install everything to use Jack Audio Connection Kit (JACK) ( on Windows.
'jackd -d portaudio -l'
And then just launch :
QJACKCTL on Windows
'jackd -R -S -d portaudio -d "your driver's name"
This is a latest version of Rui Nuno Capela QJACKCTL application ( compiled on Windows.
It is compiled from the latest CVS version which is using QT4 framework. To uses it:
More options with 'jackd'.
To use the Jack Router, just select the 'JackRouter' asio driver in your audio software.
- start qjackctl.exe and configure it the following way:
- in Setup/Setting, use "jackd -S" at the "Server Path" item. WARNING: on Windows the "-S" parameter is *mandatory* to have the jack server correctly working!!
- in Setup/Setting, use "portaudio" at the "Driver" item
- in Setup/Misc, check the "Start JACK audio server at application startup" box
- quit qjackctl.exe and start is again, it should now launch the jack server. Quitting the qjackctl.exe will now close the jack server.
Starting the jack server with another audio device installed on the machine (like an ASIO card) can now be done directly in qjackctl.
A ">" button at the right of the interface button allows to list the name of all available devices, driven either by "MME", "Direct Sound", or "ASIO".
Alternatively using the following command allows to display the names of available devices:
- jackd -d portaudio -l to display the entire list of available audio devices. (jackd -d portaudio -h will display all portaudio driver features)
Then start jackd with the device you want, by using its name, for example:
- jackd -R -S -d portaudio -d "ASIO::MOTU Audio ASIO", then start qjackctl. qjackctl will see the jackd server already running and then can be
used normally.
JackRouter JACK /ASIO driver
JackRouter is an ASIO driver that allows any ASIO compatible application to become a JACK client, thus exchange audio with any other "native" or "Jackified" application.
This driver is registered in the system by the installer and becomes available in the list of ASIO drivers when the JACK server is running. A "JackRouter.ini" configuration
file allows the application to confgiure how the JackRouter driver behaves.
- [IO]: the application can obtain any number if JACK input/output ports (not necessarilly equal to the audio card input/output number). [Note that some applications
impose their input/output channel number].
- [AUTO_CONNECT] : when 1, the application JACK port will automatically be connected to the machine input/output JACK ports.
Known problems:
- starting/stopping the server several times in qjackctl does not work correctly. You'll have to quit qjacckctl and launch it again.
