Thanks for your response. The 5.1 or 7.1 capability is not as
important to me as having 6 or 8 independent jack channels to connect
4 or 8 channels from an application (ambiosonics from aeolus). Without
adding the a52 plugin would I see more than 2 outputs in qjackctl?
With the plugin would I see 6 outputs?
