In doing this...(I went to work on figuring some of this out and
realised a shell script is kinda like a batch file on steroids) If I
placed Qjackctl then Another app like AMS in the same script, the
interface for Qjack would freeze until I terminated AMS. Is there a
function argument or such that separates individual app calls?

Got this working...use 'ams --jack --preset /home/me/filename'. works no
