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.
