Sub_title: Audio Connection Kit and Control GUI

Thought I would have a go at compiling this. I built it in Wheezy but it seems OK in Precise. You have to install 2 packages:-

jack-audio-connection-kit-0.124.1 (the server and other guts)

qjackctl-0.3.11 (the control GUI)

The GUI has the needed (official Debian) Qt libs included in a private directory so no need to install any of the larger Qt packages. I don't know very much about this program but anyone is welcome to give it a try and report any findings.

Download from here:-

Sub_title: a winning combination


Jack together with DeadBeef are a winning combination. The sound is much better, even on a laptop.

We have to check Jack instead of Alsa in the DeadBeef parameters.

My experience with Jack and DeadBeef is on another OS : APLinux (audiophile Linux), not a Puppy, based on Mint, but with the right parameters, the sound should be as good as with APLinux. Look for the instructions on the APLinux site, how to make the best out of Jack and DeadBeef. It should be easy to do the same with Puppy Precise.
There is something about the kernel, in APLinux, that helps enhance the sound of music, but even with an ordinary kernel, the sound should be richer. Developers would better understand why than me.
