You want to open qjackctl and click on 'connections'

Then you need to make sure you have the following (select one from the
left and one from the right and then 'connect' or 'disconnect' to get
it right)

Delta66 Input 2 (check name) ---- Ardour Track1 In (Bass)
Ardour Track1 Out (Bass) ----  Aurdour Master In
Ardour Master Out ----- Delta66 Output1

You could as you stated connect the output of the track straight to the
sound card output, but if you end up multi-tracking then you will
benefit from having a mixed output you can control from ardour's mixer
and automation.


If you have multiple sound cards active in your setup, make sure that
jack is using the correct sound cards for its inputs and outputs.
