I'm not sure if anyone's replied to you yet; if not, read on.

I'm not sure. I don't actually use qjackctl for testing ffado so I don't
know if there are any special issues one needs to be aware of.

Again, I can't speak about this since I don't run qjackctl. The CPU loads
you speak of seem a little odd though. It might be a good idea to try
starting jackd from the command line initially since this may give more
clues as to what's going on. It'll be something like this
jackd -R -P 60 -d firewire -n 4 -p 1024
but I can't check this right now. This starts jackd in realtime mode at
priority 60 using the firewire driver with 4 periods and a period buffer
size of 1024.

I obviously missed an earlier email in this thread. The mixer stuff is
still under development AFAIK. Pieter's the one to speak to about its
current state. Again, I haven't played with this side of ffado yet.
The mixer side of ffado will ultimately allow you to control the firewire
devices in the same way you can under other operating systems.

FFADO midi is also pretty much untested at this stage I think - Pieter?
