I installed and upgraded UbuntuStudio Beta 8.04.

I made some test, so I'll report here:

1)I have a firebox soundcard; qjackctl and freebob doesn't let my
firebox work.
running "gksu qjackctl" my firebox seems to work
There is a possibilities to use a "FIREWIRE" driver in qjackctl, instead
of Freebob, anyway it doesn't work(maybe it is FFADO??)
I put at the end of message the error messages.

2)I think most of the problems are related to "1)", ardour(as user)
tries to setup a new audio/device also if jackd is running(as root). On
audio devices there is FFADO driver, naturally doesn't work.
running "gksu ardour2" let ardour to work, producing sound from firebox.
Anyway firebox doesn't work very well before,will firebox work with
FFADO driver??
