JackEQ is a useful and stable tool for my work-flow. Thank you for
I don't need "jackmenu", but indeed it could be helpful for my workflow
too, e.g. Rui's Qtractor is able to handle connections directly
connected to Qtractor. So if I connect Qtractor with jackEQ, I don't
need "jackmenu", but for connections between e.g. jackconvolver, JAMin
etc. and jackEQ Qtractor doesn't take care, so indeed, having "jackmenu"
for jackEQ is welcome :).

However, jack_snapshot and aj-snapshot were the tools I used, regarding
to the issue I mentioned and I start jackd by a scrip, not by QjackCtl.

QjackCtl is very clear, while patchage easily becomes a mess.
