well, ideally, the ultimate authority would be the creator of the hardware,
if they were to officially support linux. this can be tricky coming into
linux with special needs and specialized equipment that the creators didnt
promise support for. usb devices are typically just "plug and play" class

what would i do? first, just start experimenting with a live CD (dvd or
usb, or whatever).. use the latest ubuntustudio 14.04, or something light
like avlinux.. just load that up, and find your USB device and open
qjackctl and try and get jack running.. if you come on the irc into
#ubuntustudio on freenode, i would be glad to work with you first-hand on
getting your device working..

things that can cause issues....

device labels can jump, so, what i suggest is, *dont* use the USB device at
first.. right now, you are new to *many* things.. so, why not remove one
thing from the equation, and just use JACK with an internal audio device
and learn to use the tools and setup jack, etc.. *then* you can come back
later and add the USB device.. i also suggest, when you get around to using
the usb device, disable or remove other devices, if possible, so at boot,
there is only one device that should be "default", and simplify setup

make sure you are using jack sources.. start with a well known, good source
file like an audio ogg in audacious routed with the jack driver..

refer to.. https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UbuntuStudio/ProAudioIntro/1204

ask questions with as much detail as possible.. good luck
