Guess, the problem in my configuration is, that pulseaudio won't startup 
successfully and therefore hinders jackd to launch. At least that's what 
I read out of the journalctl's output. The main problem seams to me that 
pulseaudio identifies the Korg as an audio device and that's why I am 
asking, what to do about that.

Nevertheless: Many thanks for your fast reply!
