I know of Ardour's and Jack's auto connection features - however, I understand that LASH could handle complex workflows much better. I am having problems to find a manual about LASH. So far I started it from the menu, but the included menu items won't give me hints on how to use it. seems to be down, (point ?) no manual? Thanks, Thomas

In case anyone stumbles over this thread: LASH is fairly dead. There is a follow-up, called "Ladish". You can get it from There is quite some docs about it. Ladish supports *all* audio software that connects to jack, but in a very basic manner. It also supports some other software more thoroughly. For more details, check The recommended way, however, is using jack_session, as roughly described in It comes with JACK, has fewer features, but a cleaner implementation. Hydrogen, QJackCtl and a lot of other common JACK applications will support it in the very near future.
