 +ALSA will see only one channel, but after installing QJackCtl from [[https://​ubuntustudio.org/​ubuntu-studio-installer/​| Ubuntu-Studio installer]] everything works with Jackaudio (QJackCTL). 
 + 
 +Listed audio channels in Jack correspond to:  
 + 
 +CH 1-8 => Analog 6.3mm Jack Out 
 + 
 + 
 +CH 9 - 10 => Spdif 
 + 
 + 
 +CH 11 -18 => Adat (Tosink) 
 + 
 + 
 +You might run some pre-start and post-start scripts from QJackCtl to get rid of some pulseaudio standard routings to the first 2 channels.

-ALSA will see only one channel, but after installing ​QJackCtl from Ubuntu-Studio installer everything works.+We figured out that custom routings are only loaded when QJackCtl ​is started ​from GUI rater than activated from command line only.
