I'm still quite unclear on how to get any kind of audio inputs working on Linux. None of the Also, Pulse, or JACK setups list any of the named inputs my system has. pavucontrol lists all the ones I want.

I've tried Jack, but QJackCtl also doesn't list any of the devices to connect.

The best I've managed is choosing an Alsa driver and choosing one specific hardware device. This works, but is obviously not ideal as my output must also go there, and I can't use multiple devices.

What audio device are you using? Be aware that not all audio adapters are supported in linux.

Are the inputs and outputs coming from the same audio adapter?

For pro-audio the best choice of adapters for linux are usb class compliant audio adapters (e.g. ES-8).

You have to add input and output channels in the setup->Audio.

Read page 11 of the user manual.

If you need more help, list the hardware you are using.

Best regards,
