Ardour 7 ALSA no input or playback

Hello, I have a scarlett 2i2 third generation connected via usb to my Debian 11 system. In Ardour, I attempt to connect via ALSA to have the interface as both the input and output, as I listen to the output of my system via the output port on the interface.

When I do this, the audio playing on my system anywhere else immediately stops and won’t play without stopping the system in Ardour. The input still doesn’t work while this is running, and I’m not allowed to change my sample rate above 44.1 kHz, which is odd considering I’ve unlocked the interface and should be able to reach 192 kHz. I’ll attach some code and the image of the hardware configuration screen. I will say that I have a minimal system, and I’m trying to keep it as bare bones as possible, so I’m not looking to install jack unless Ardour requires this (which I’ve read around and it seems as though it does not). I DO have pulseaudio installed. Please let me know if there’s anything else I can provide to help solve my issue. Thanks for your time!

Here is my lspci -k

hardware-config

Ardour takes exclusive control of the audio hardware if the ALSA backend is used. This is intentional.

If you do not want this, you will need to use the PulseAudio backend, which only offers playback (no recording).

Regarding the sample rate settings, I suggest you explore that with some other software. If Ardour offers only 44.1kHz, there’s a reason (in the device driver) for that.
