Works quite nicely.  Moreover, I found out that it is possible to
route, using QJackCtl, individual Ardour track outputs to other playback
inputs (3,4,5, ... 1 and 2 being for Ardour's main mix) and then create
a custom monitoring mix using envy24control.  That's great.

Although it seems the number of Ardour tracks can easily outgrow the
number of system playback inputs.  I've never used busses in Ardour.
Next I will try to group certain tracks in a bus, then have the output
of a bus routed in a system playback input.

Is it possible to save and recall envy24control and QJackCtl
setups to save time in wiring stuff ?
