capture input

I have an M-Audio 192 card installed using ALSA driver with JACK. It works for playback or existing files, but I can’t record! The JACK sever loads, but I am not getting signal from my card to Ardour.

Thanks for any suggestions,

Do you connect the capture input you use to the track you want to record to?
afaik, there are 3 ways to do this
If you start the JACK GUI (qjackctl) prior to Ardour, by means of the Connect button.
If not,
in ardour, through the track-bus inspector.
Or (the easiest way): in the mixer window through the input field at the top.
