AFAIK, jack_capture records in real time. Jack_export records while
Ardour is in freewheeling mode during exporting, so it's usually 
'faster than real time'.

Also, jack_export will ceate a proper WAVEX file (standard WAV must
not be used for > 2 channels) or CAF, or Ambisonic WAVEX, and provide
different output formats and optional dithering.



A world of exhaustive, reliable metadata would be an utopia.
It's also a pipe-dream, founded on self-delusion, nerd hubris
and hysterically inflated market opportunities. (Cory Doctorow)
