Recommended jackd parameters

In all settings, the soundcard in question is assumed to have ALSA card index 0. If it doesn't, just replace the 0 in -dhw:0 with the card's index.

Hardware jackd command line Comments
Creative SoundBlaster Live 5.1 jackd -R -dalsa -dhw:0 -r48000 -p256 Buffer sizes lower than 128 frames do not work.
Emagic a26 (usb) jackd -R -dalsa -dhw:0 -r44100 -p256 -n3 both -r44100 and -r48000 works. will generate correct input and output number (2 ins, 6 outs). -r96000 works and will generate 2 ins, 2 outs. (Audio interface's limitation).
HDA Intel ALC883 Analog jackd -R -dalsa -dhw:0,0 -r44100 -p256 -n3 -r48000 and -r96000 works.
Terratec Aureon 5.1 PCI jackd -R -dalsa -dhw:0,2 -r48000 -p256 -n2 -P -S These settings are for S/PDIF out. For some reason it won't work at all with S/PDIF duplex. You can use smaller buffer sizes, but below 32 samples (1.33 ms) xruns start to appear on my machine.
RME Digi96/8 PCI jackd -R -dalsa -dhw:0 -r44100 -p256 -n2 -r44100 works, -r48000 not yet tried.
Phonic Helixboard 12 Firewire jackd -R -dfreebob -r96000 -p256 -n3 -D Works perfectly, have not tried lower than 256
Presonus Firepod Firewire jackd -R -dfreebob -r96000 -p128 -n3 Works great. Other rates 44100 etc.. also work
