Is anyone working on the problem of getting Jack up and running on MacOS again? I installed Jack with brew but I get these “could not handle external client request” errors which seems to be old problems from looking at search results and GitHub discussions - problems introduced when MacOS audio architecture was changed a while back. Is there any progress on these matters? Is someone working on it? I need Jack as it is a dependency to another library I would like to use but I realize that I might have to abandon MacOS as a platform in the process.
That is such good news. What(low cost) hardware would this development be
used on to support the developers with testing/debugging and maybe even
* MOTU LP32 (Preferred)
* MiniDSP https://www.minidsp.com/products/network-audio/avb-dg (I think
MOTU's switch uses midDSP switch hardware)
I hope someday it will be possible to connect 4 or more 8 channel ADAT
modules (32 channels) to a PC under Ubuntu via AVB with low latency. The
only option to get this done under Windows is a Focursrite DANTE based
Rednet 3 right now because Thunderbolt is not really available there as
well. Plan to get Rednet3, but that does not solve the Linux environment
which I prefer. Would love to be able to use the Rednet 3 under Linux but
since DANTE is proprietary , so unlikely.
My two wishes:
[a] Multi (16+) channel low latency audio I/O using ADAT audio AD/DA
[b[ Bitwig supporting LV2 plugins.
With those two, the Linux Audio environment would be perfect and the world
a better place.

I've found Jack on Windows to be very good. But its quite limited with
only 4 channels. It's actually allowed me to setup, after many problems
with other methods, a way of having vinyl timecode control into Mixxx
through Jack with good latency (8.71ms, Mixxx recommended <10ms). I can
also route a single stereo channel from Reaper into Mixxx Aux input. The
setup runs very well and I've had no underuns or audio artefacts so far.
So I'm actually very impressed with what Jack can do on Windows but the
last release seems to have been in 2016 and I don't see any mention of
adding further audio channels beyond the already existing 4.
So are there plans for further releases ? Or maybe I'm missing any forked
versions for windows that may be out there?
Cheers and thanks for Jack !

We have created a jack client which is similar to the simple client from
There is some audio from the client is being sent.
The issue is jack_ringbuffer_write function returns 0 but the ring
buffer(all input parameters) which are sent are not 0.
Note:-Client is Asterisk(using attached app_jack.c).
Also Kindly tell us how to run jack in debug mode.
Thanks & Regards
