I'm doing some experiments to use Jack and NetJack to connect several machines. Here I'm using two Linux machines : a debian as client and mint 20 as server (sorry I'm not confortable with the "master" "slave" keywords in this context).
I'm sending 32 channels from client to server. By the way, this works great and is very intuitive.
Though, for some reason, when I connect these inputs to something (here to Reaper), audio is great until I connect the 26th input to Reaper. Then it starts glitching (sounds like interruption) and gets worst if I keep increasing the number of connections. If I remove connections to keep it less than 26, it sounds ok. Never had this problem before.
Is it likely related to NetJack ? Or does it sounds like a pure Jack issue ?
Thanks for any help or advice

This is a bit off topic, as it is really a Debian system management question
I wish to deploy Jack on my system from source.
I have built jack with only warnings using

I am on a debian based system and `apt remove jackd` wants to remove all
my programmes that depend on Jack (fair enough), but naturally that is
not what I want.
How do I move the packaged jack aside without also moving aside all the
programmes I wish to use with Jack?
If not me then who? If not now then when? If not here then where?

Dear list members,
I'm quite new to Jack and just subscribed to this mailing list.
First, let me say a warm Hello to everyone!
*Now to my problem.*
Since I upgraded Kubuntu 20.04 LTS to 22.04 (and also to 22.10), the sound
I hear is distorted. Even when the sound source is very quiet, the sound is
distorted. As if somewhere, the input signal is way too high.
I tried a few different settings in the Jack Audio Connection Kit, at no
Of course, I did ample research at Brother Google and found seemingly
similar problems. The advice that was given there, was either not
applicable to my situation, or was far beyond my skills to actually digg
that far into my Linux OS (I'm a chemistry teacher at a Dutch high school,
not an IT professional ;-).
Thus made me decide to ask for help here!
My soundcard is a Focusrite Scarlett 2i2, The version of the software is
jackd: 5+nmu1; jackd2 & libjack-jackd2-0: 1.9.21; qjackctl: 0.9.7-1
Below that is the output of the Messages in QjackCtl. Maybe and hopefully,
that some skilled eye finds some occurring error ...
Thanks in advance !!!
