Since when graphical display is a direct symptom of professionalism?
Professional means that *you* are the professional, you know your tools and
how to use them to get the best results against the minimum effort need to
achieve them.
What's your problem in having different needs for production than yours?

No, you don't. You use that workflow if, and only if, you are using a
permanent setup. I don't.

Keep it simple and straightforward!

Or... keep it as it meets your needs. :-)
I never said that QjackCtl is not valid, it just isn't right for *my* needs
(again, MY needs, which are different than yours or than anyone else), and
I think that having complex routing layouts it actually doesn't work right.
Again, according to MY needs, MY workflow and MY - always different and
mutable - setups.
