JACK Session

Session Management Overview

Jack Session is on of the most popular Linux Session Management standards

  • Fully compatible with JACK apps that have built-in support for JACK Session
  • Not compatible with other session management protocols
  • Limited compatibility with apps without session manager support (only JACK connections can be restored)
  • GUI frontend: QJackCtl, PyJackSM
  • Saving a session will save the state of all 'JACK Session'-supported apps plus their JACK connections
  • Opening a session will automatically launch those apps, restoring their state and JACK connections
  • Supported apps can be told to save/load their state to/from a specific location
  • First released in 2011. Currently in active development
