You are here



I am here because a software manufacturer recommended QJackCtl as a way to route signals from Logic Pro X to a waveform analysis program (his) I have dutifully loaded version 0.9.6 onto my Mac (Mojave) and have been desperately searching for step-by-step instructions or a video tutorial that will help me get started. All the videos I found do not seem to feature the same GUI as I see when I open my version and I am loath to change settings without a relevant example. Can someone please recommend a contemporary tutorial that features the recent version of QJackCtl on a Mac with instructions on how to connect the output of one program (Logic Pro X) to the input of another (Waveform Analyzer)?

Many thanks in advance for your assistance and apologies for such a banal request,

hi, i'm afraid I can't help much on the bitten fruit platform--I deal with Linux only--but assuming you go to Setup / Settings and check almost everything is on its "(default)" setting, why don't take the chance and hit "Start" and see what happens?

Once JACK starts alright, hopefully, you may launch your applications (Logic and the other waveform analysis thing); configure them to use JACK for audio i/O and then go to the QjackCtl's Graph, where you may well see those applications as boxes (if all's working right, that is).

By then it's a matter to click-and-drag a connection line from an output-port and drop into a desired input-port (or vice-versa). And that's it. Also, if you're referring to the (old) Connections UI you may also get it to show up as an alternative to the (modern) Graph UI: in the right-click menu from the main QjackCtl window, then select Connections... voilá! maybe that looks a bit more familiar to the tuts you've seen out there?
