Hi all!

Audacity works alone, but only when jack is not running.  When it does, 
Jack crashes.

I set Jack and Audacity at 44100 in sample rate, but Jack crashes 
already when Audacity starts. When i go to the preferences it says it 
uses the ALSA:default (using Portaudio v19). I tried to change it to 
Jack (alsa_pcm) but when i hit OK crashes Audacity!

BTW always when i open Audacity i hear a "PLOP!" on my boxes...

$ audacity
JACK tmpdir identified as [/dev/shm]

Das it help?

Is there an alternative to Audacity in this case?
