jackd -R -d alsa -d hw:1 - second sound card


I use Studio 64 (Debian based distro). I have managed to get my external sound card
working (sort of) After some configuration of the programs like audacity, hydrogen, etc. I can hear sound coming out of it (Btw, it's a usb tascam us 122). However, there is no sound in programs like ardour and rosegarden (I have some soundfonts)

Question 1:

How can I change the card system-wide, so that I would connect the speakers to my tascam, not the on-board card.

Question 2:

Before running ardour, rosengarden one needs to start jack. When I start it normally everything is fine, I can run rosegarden, I can see my card recognised in settings, etc.
However, when I run jack and specify the second card I got the error:

sycamorex@64studio:~$ jackd -R -d alsa -d hw:1
jackd 0.102.20
