This is what I use. It works only because *usually* jack will report the first
two ports of zita-mu1 to be 'in_1.L' and 'in_1.R'. Actually jack has no notion
of port order, so you can't count of this.

If necessary I have another solution which will always work, but it requires
the use of jack_proxy. This is one of the three small apps in the jack_utils
package you can find on my website. Let me know if you need any help with this.
