Last Sunday I set up my laptop for a 3.5-hour recording session, Audacity crashed after 2.5 hours. Anyone know why this might have occurred, what to do about it, whether Audacity is in fact best for simple recording?

i see that your patch only reads the pretty-names (metadata) if exists
at runtime and uses them as the "official" port-names instead.
so, who or what does the pretty-name setup? that is, who or what sets
the pretty-names of each port in the first place?
i was thinking about the user using the qjackctl client/port aliases
functionality already in place and use it eg. to run jack_set_property()
on each renamed client/port alias on jack server start (as read from
Qjackctl.conf file, on a per preset basis).
what you think?

That is not true at all, Audio and MIDI are separate and so it is very
possible (even likely) that the backend for audio may not be relevant to MIDI.
MIDI is handled by ALSA, but is not treated as a part of the same audio
interface as the sound that goes with it. So the user who has a FW audio IF
with no MIDI would not be able to use a USB MIDI along with it if this was in
the backend only. Along the same lines is the FW user who does have MIDI in
their FW IF wants to use a lot of the older SW that creates ALSA MIDI ports
they are again stuck if it is only available in the ALSA back end.
The only thing I would like to see different in a2jmidi is the naming. (I am
not sure how jack1 works) a2j opens as one client called a2j that when expanded
has the alsa client name followed by the actual port name. This is hard to read
and use. It is also confusing to new users who ask where the port is just
because a2j has not been expanded. I would guess the best thing (from a user
POV) would be for a2j to open a new jack client for each ALSA client with the
ALSA name. I am not sure what other consequences this would have though :)
Some of you might be interested in a new project I have been working on:
It is a fully realtime automated music playback system built with various
FLOSS tools. The system runs entirely in the cloud and doesn't even have a
It's a work in progress so YMMV...
