Maybe I just not a master googler, but I didnt find any answer why qjackctl
limits maximum of input or output channels to 32. Also PD has this limit
compiled in and so on, but jackd starts with 64 channels with my MADI-card ?
Is there a technical reason or can I just remove the limits in the code ?
Its not so bad becaused I always used alsa-only before, but I just want give
jack a try.
BTW, I also would suggest that if a limit is needed, it should be 256 channels
(4 MADI-Cards) I thinks its the maximum you can do nowaday with linux, but if
there is the rule of computer speed, so I can think, this count will double
each 2 years, so to be save for next 4 years we need 1024 channels limit.
