I got a hardware setup which looks a bit messy in the Patchbay – the input channel count is 10, and the output channel count is 12, but the last 8 channels are to see in pairs, because most of the time, I use them as hardware FX sends. So, e.g. to patch an insert correctly, I have to patch ‘playback_5’ and ‘playback_6’ for the outputs, but the inputs would be ‘capture_3’ and ‘capture_4’. So, to make things a bit more logical, I renamed the aliases in QjackCtl to be more pretty and understandable, and also checked the 'Enable JACK client/port pretty-names (metadata), but to no avail. After stopping and restarting JACK service and Ardour, the default names are still there. Is there a possibility to rename the tracks and reflect those names in Ardours patchbay?
Thanks in advance for your help!
Here’s the names in Ardour:
And here’s what I did in JACK:
