This is more than just your average tutorial for using an application. This represents the advanced status of the Jack Audio Connection Kit system. JACK is the Linux Audio Developers answer to Core Audio.
The product of cooperation between the most advanced coders in the Linux audio community. Using it allows the user to connect any number of JACK aware applications in realtime without sound dropouts. It is tested on the job in professional studios throughout the world and has been proven effective in multitrack (more than 24 hardware inputs) recording sessions."
