Anyone here use Ardour?


I just downloaded and installed Ardour - it seems like a really good music processing program, meant to be a little like cubase? or so I was told anyway.

Anyway - it has installed fine - trouble is when I click on the icon to get it going it comes up with a box that says -

JACK cannot be dedected

so I checked in YAST to see if I have something called JACK - and I seem to have it, so why is Ardour not starting?

This is odd......how am I meant to create crazy techno music at this rate?

You need to have the JACK daemon running before Ardour can start.
You can start it with a command like this, assuming you're using ALSA sound drivers:
jackd -d alsa &

If you want a GUI for managing JACK, you can install qjackctl.

I see, does the gui for JACK make it easier to start? - I would just open that then ardour would run?
Also, what is your opinion of ardour - is it any good? I used to use Cubase on windows and was looking for something simmilar.
