thanks for sharing this.
Some time ago I've also had to write systemd service units for running a
headless jackd in combination with "rotter" for a recording solution.
The service file is available at  and the documentation at  in
case you're interested. It supports multiple jackd instances (it was
written as a generic systemd service unit template) and uses the
"jack_wait" command to wait for jackd to be up and running. It was
designed to be as generic as possible an let the local administrator
configure certain settings using systemd service instance overrides (see
 for an example with alsa).
Hey, nice, thanks. You are using a few features I didn't know yet,
looking forward to checking them out. Especially "BindsTo" looks like it
could be very useful (I found it explained in man systemd.units) - looks
like any jack client service should be bound to Jack pretty much
unconditionally unless it would survive the server going away and coming
