While Ardour4 does not need jack anymore, it still works better with jack
than without. MIDI especially works better as jack provides sample
accurate MIDI events. Also, Ardour4 with alsa has some limitations that
running Jack can get around, such as using a different device for input
and output... which (unfortunately) is becoming more common.
