The build of qjackctl included with jackdmp for windows is getting really
The biggest problem is that the default "startup time" is set too low,
seem like "jack crashes". (I"ve got many complains that "jack crashes").
Another problem is that you manually have to append "-S" to the "Server
...I've cloned the official qjackctl repository, fixed these two problems,
and added some files to make it straight forward to build qjackctl under
(Building is just running the "build_mingw32.sh" script)
Windows binary: http://folk.uio.no/~ksvalast/qjackctl.zip
Perhaps this build, or something similar, can be included in the next
release of jack for windows?
There's a new release candidate of JACK1 now available. Because of the
magnitude of a couple of the changes, some wider testing would be
appreciated before 0.125.0 can be released.
(tagged in git as 0.125.0.rc1)
Changes since 0.124.1, in rough order of significance:
* use topological sort when ordering clients. Previous sorting
generate incorrect ordering of clients in some (unusual, but not
* in the alsa_midi slave driver, fix hotpug device enumeration. JACK1
will now respond
to MIDI devices being connected and disconnected while running.
* increase maximum size of a single JACK MIDI event to 64 bytes
* in the alsa_midi slave driver, fix thread start/stop handling when
* add support for jack_port_rename()
* drop support for CPU cycle counting clock, use kernel clocksource
* fix a double-fork that left zombie processes around
* improve the validity and usability of the return value of
* fix failing metadata look up by clearing UUID parsing buffer before use
* support unescaped double quotes in $HOME/.jackdrc
* fix memory leaks of metata key/value pairs
* fix crash caused by incorrect jack_error() format string
* remove option help from jackd and point user at documentation
* fix problems with garbage keys in metadata
* fix out-of-tree builds
* update configure.ac to work with current-ish autotools with less errors
* use gcc atomics and CLOCK_REALTIME for generic CPU builds
* a handful of other minor bug fixes

I have been working on a mixer project using Juce, and wish
to network the audio using Jack. Simple
application would be like a digital snake with the eventual implantation of personal
mixes. Running this on unix I can use
alsa2jack or zita-a2j. But the audioadapter
and netadapter is not part of the windows install package. So I was going to attempt building it myself.
According to the readme on github, to build with Microsoft compiler requires vc6. I have serveral versions
of visual studio but non that old.
The readme also says you can build with gcc, and mingw with sjlj is
required but it appears that is it is no longer available with sljl (never used gcc on windws so this is new to me).
Is there a current “how to” for building jack for windows? And/Or is there a location I could download
the audioadapter and netadapter for the current jack2 version?
