Installed a new monitoring tool ( and noticed that it's not jack or sc aggravating my computer's coil whine, it's pulseaudio trying to keep up. Time to try out pipewire again?

I would say yes give pipewire a go.
I am now using it al the time, and without any real setting up, apart from changing the default 48000 to 44100, it just works.
I was having some troubles with ardour5, but they were quickly resolved by an upgrade to the latest ardour.

@martin Can I ask what your interface is like and what you're using for routing? Last time I tried it there was a lot I liked, but I was between qjackctl and pavu for routing and they fought each other.


My sound card is an edirol ua 25ex
I am running ubuntu studio 20.04
For routing with programs that use jack, like carla, and supercollider i use qjackctl.
I believe that pipewire also has routing controls but I haven't got into that yet as things all seem to be working nicely for now.

@martin Thank you. Yep I see that rncbc now has a pipewire routing tool called qpwgraph which looks like the thing --

Maybe I'll give it a shot on the weekend!

Cool.Thanks. I will give that a try too.
Hahah.. there is also a ua 25 in the screenshot of the readme
