no one is stupid ! The stupid one is the one who never ask anything.

in you are under ubuntu studio, your computer have alsa, linux audio 
driver loaded at boot.

when the desktop is loaded, open a terminal with 
applications/accessories/terminal, put it in fullscreen mode.

plug your m audio fast track ultra usb into a usb port. have a look to 
the sound card, leds are ok ?

in the terminal, use the


command to list the usb devices.

in my computer, it's like that

laurent at laurent-laptop:~$ lsusb
Bus 003 Device 004: ID 0bda:0116 Realtek Semiconductor Corp.
Bus 003 Device 003: ID 04f2:b012 Chicony Electronics Co., Ltd
Bus 003 Device 001: ID 0000:0000 
Bus 002 Device 002: ID 046d:c00f Logitech, Inc.
Bus 002 Device 001: ID 0000:0000 
Bus 001 Device 003: ID 0ccd:0028 TerraTec Electronic GmbH
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 0000:0000 

the line TerraTec is my external usb sound card.

second time, do you have an internal audio card ? to know it, another 

lspci | grep Audio


lspci | grep audio



is this card is running ?

then, alsa sound card list with

laurent at laurent-laptop:~$ asoundconf list
Names of available sound cards:

here, two card, the internal sis966 and the terratec external usb2, 
called Audio.

for GNU/Linux, the first of the list is called hw:0 and the second is hw:1

launch jack control, in setup, choose the good card, modifiy 
frame/periode to get a good latency, under 10ms.
start jack, no xruns, that's good.

now you can discover ardour/rosegarden/hydrogen, etc...

Let know us if this sound card is ok.
