Using Pop_OS (Ubuntu flavor) w/ Ardour from the ardour.org site…
I have (successfully) made it thru the installs, read the "must read’ stuff, etc…
The last item on my list is to get Ardour working so that I can also watch Youtube videos or let another app use my sound card.
Having already done some googling, it appears Alsa won’t allow that. This is where I’m getting rather confused because a reddit comment(below) suggested that I switch to Jack when I open a new session. I got Jack all set up (all green in that terminal, etc), but then the default driver is Alsa.
I googled each of the options in the ‘Driver’ dropdown and wasn’t sure which, if any of those, as the right pick (Alsa is the default option).
Other suggestions online mentioned installed Cadence, but I don’t want to get into downloading a whole bunch of unnecessary shit… Thanks.
Anyone have any suggestions?
