Syncing with Qjackctl

Hi all,

I’m trying to use Ardour with Qjackctl. and Hydrogen.
All works fine in terms of routing audio. But trying to have the play/rec etc controls sync isn’t working.
Is there a special setting in Ardour I need to turn on?
It works fine with Hydrogen. i.e. I press play on Qjackctl and hydrogen plays. and vice versa but nothing happens with Ardour.

Ubuntu Studio 12
Mac book pro

let me know if people need more specific details

Of course. Thanks Seablade.

Set the sync source to Jack…
