Now that I think about it, no, I'm not sure about that. I've usually
reserved JACK use for Ardour, so I might not have ever tried running a
non-JACK app with the server open.

I'm pretty sure Snd operates in just that manner, and I understand what
you're telling me. I also tried opening it with jacklaunch but got no
joy. :(
