TOPIC: Add JACK audio connection kit to Lightworks

Add JACK audio connection kit to Lightworks 2 weeks ago #173455

This is a request to add JACK audio capability to Lightworks sound features.
It would add audio and midi connections between Lightworks and other JACK enabled applications.
One of the major audio applications that could be fully time code synchronized to Lightworks via Jack is Harrison Mixbus.

This could be a relatively simple way to get high end multi-track digital audio production features implemented with Lightworks either on the same workstation or via network to a separate audio workstation.

From the Mixbus manual:

Using Mixbus with JACK (optional)
JACK is a system service that allows for the interconnection of audio between applications. Previous versions of Mixbus required that JACK be installed on your system. Mixbus no longer requires or expects JACK to be installed. Mixbus uses your sound card directly via ASIO (Windows), Core Audio (Mac) or ALSA (Linux ).
If you would like to interconnect the audio of different applications into Mixbus, then you can download and install JACK for your system. JACK is not a Harrison product, and we cannot provide email support for JACK users. However you will find a lot of JACK users on our forum, because JACK is a powerful utility.
JACK creates virtual audio and MIDI ports that can be connected and shared between nearly any application on your system. If the application is JACK-aware ( i.e. it was compiled with the JACK libraries) then it will have some additional features such as sample-accurate transport control and sync. There are many third-party apps that can control JACK connections, save and restore your connections, or even route the audio or MIDI using Ethernet. Mixbus is fully JACK-enabled, and it can save all the JACK connections that are made to it. Mixbus can also use JACK as a sync source, or it can be the master sync source.
JACK control from within Mixbus is straightforward:

+1 for this!

not only for the syncing to Mixbus / Ardour: jack is the only pro grade audio thing on linux and a lot of sound pro users route all their sound through jack via cadence snd_aloop etc...

Blender supports jack, so does VLC player, bitwig, Ardour, moc, alsaplayer, and a lot of other applications.

... and it could give Lightwork a significant competitive advantage in that area compared to some free solution for quality video production on the Linux market.
LightWorks 14.1 on Linux Debian 4.9.65-3+deb9u2 (2018-01-04) x86_64 GNU/Linux
GeForce GT 445M with Nvidia drivers 340.24
Intel(R) Core(TM) i7 CPU Q 840 @ 1.87GHz (4 cores + hyper-theading)

Jack also implements MIDI control sync between applications.

If it helps fixing "glitches" and some other inconveniences with the audio engine some users have,
why not Jack Audio?

It's better to travel well than to arrive...
