When several instances of Bristol are running, the first one's jack client name is 'bristol', with subsequent instances appearing as 'bristol-01', 'bristol-02', etc. which is the default behaviour for multiple jack clients of the same name.

It'd be handy (for me anyway) if the emulation name were appended to the jack client name, so I'd instead see (e.g.) bristol-mini, bristol-solina and so forth in qjackctl. I assume this wouldn't be too terribly difficult to do: if I get a few moments I might even try to implement it myself.

Colin.

    This should be in 0.60.2, closing.

    This has actually been closed but the original argument is actually quite sensible. The default name for the registration should be the emulator name, if somebody wants to go further and use multiple versions of the same emulator then an override should be used in that case.

    The -emulate option does assign the synth name to jack and ALSA, I can generatlise that to always do it if the selected audio is jack and the selected MIDI is SEQ (ALSA RAW still uses a physical interface).

    Will review it for the next release.
