I am having trouble getting JACK control to work with Soundblaster Audigy ZS 2
 
Hi All
I am having trouble getting the audio to work on this computer (ACER 5570-4765 with PCM Audigy ZS 2) running Ubuntu Studio 10.10.

I can get JACK to run without errors but I am not sure if settings are correct.

For now I would just like to listen to music using Audacious but I would eventually like to record guitar using Rakarrack (I have this installed but I am having zero luck with this as well)

I am a newbie and find JACK documentation very confusing. I am starting to like Linux though.

Thanks in advance for any help

Here are a few lines from the JACK message screen if this is any help

19:13:18.734 JACK is starting...

Hi, try the seq midi option instead of raw
