If you have an Ardour bus called 'export' then jack_export will connect
to it.

If not, you can connect whatever you want to record manually, this can
be the outputs of individual track strips, sends, whatever, including 
outputs from other Jack apps.

Recording starts when Jack enters freewheeling mode, and stops when
it returns to normal operation.

and hysterically inflated market opportunities. (Cory Doctorow)
