JACK Audio Connection Kit

JACK is an acronym for Jack Audio Connection Kit. It is a low latency audio server mainly utilized by pro audio software.

Note

I'm interested to know what makes JACK better than using ALSA. Some introductory comparison would be welcome.

For users that require low latency when running JACK, see the following kernel configuration guide.
