Hi,

thanks for the answer.  However, I have jackd turned off when I use Audacity directly
with ALSA and I can access hw:1,0 from Audacity.  It works for recording and playback
but not for overdubbing. 

I was just using jackd to see if it would work.  I would rather use Audacity directly with
ALSA.  It might give a hint that the qjackctl GUI lets me select both hw:1 and hw:1,0
as input and output.  I'm not sure what hw:1 means really, I thought you always had to
put a pair of numbers meaning interface:device. 

Thanks,

Fredrik

When Jackd is running it will take exclusive control of the device
that it is using, so if it is using hw:0,0 then that device will not
be available to any other applications unless they are using Jack. To
make hw:0,0 available directly with ALSA you will need to stop Jack.
